A showcase of comic artists, zine-makers, illustrators and storytellers with over fifty tabling artists from Seattle, Olympia, Portland and Eugene. The event will feature a raffle, photo booth and gallery exhibition open to submissions with the theme "Fantastical Gardens". Zines (pronounced ZEEN or ZEENs) are often self-published material that can be instructional, personal, a comic or story, a compilation of common or uncommon things. The endless possibilities are what make Zines fun, desirable, rare and collectible. Though anyone can make a Zine, Zine Fests attract many graphic artists, photographers, writers and visual storytellers who have cultivated their art.
