Forward Thinking: D.I.Y. Inspiration

#Forward Thinking: D.I.Y. Inspiration

Join us for a panel discussion on Saturday, June 10 from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. during Duval Comic and Zine Fest to discuss do-it-yourself culture and inspiration within the context of self-made media like zines, comics and printmaking. What does that space look like now, and what will it look like in the future? How have digital tools and distribution methods changed how (and what) creators produce?

Panelists will address these questions (and more) from the perspectives of physical production, digital media and distribution. They will also discuss building and curating a community of readers and fellow zinesters. 

Moderator: Shelton Hull is a writer, zinester, journalist, broadcaster, and co-founder of Bold City Records.

  • Panelist: Emma Lee Jensen is a comics artist, editor and educator at Sequential Artists Workshop
  • Panelist: Andrew Kozlowski is an artist, printmaker, University of North Florida professor and zinester
  • Panelist: Aysha Miskin is a digital designer, illustrator, zinester and teaching artist

Register for now!

Note: Chair seating will be guaranteed to those who register but "standing room" will also be available at the event. The discussion takes place on the first floor of the Main Library, right in the center of the action and right next to the Library's Zine Collection. So, you can attend the program and still have plenty of time to check out everything else DCAZ Fest offers!
