Issue Ten of Radical Zine is Here – Creative Healing and Independent Artists

Oh my gosh it’s 2019! How amazing this seems to me. I’ve been publishing Radical for more than a year now. It feels wonderful. I want to keep it going for years, maybe even decades. I’m filled with awe imagining all the ways it will evolve.

This issue is focused on the winter months theme of hibernation to allow us to dive deep into our self-care and fires to keep us warm. Do you like to hibernate during the winter months? I find myself saying No to activities with others and Yes to time with myself. This is my third year of living with the seasons and it grounds me in a way that I never experienced before. I highly recommend giving it a go.Maybe you have a real fire pit that you warm your hands around on the cold days and nights, or maybe you’re focused on the fire inside of you. Either way fire is a powerful symbol of rebirth.

In this issue I’m stoked to introduce a new artist Lauren Elizabeth, whom I had the joy of working with at the San Diego Museum of Art. She is a talented and colorful artist that shares emotions both happy and sad, in her work. I hope you enjoy it. Regular contributors include the always fantastic Kendal Fong, Inisa Fajra, Wendy Rodriguez, Erik Reyes, Chief Lady Bird and myself.

Issue Nine of Radical Featuring Iris Orpi – November/December 2018

Autumn is here and I am loving this season more than ever. It’s been a wild summer full of great and awful things. Great things like my brother’s wedding and awful things like my fractured foot. Now is the time to release summer and relax into a season of doing less, of reflecting on the past year, and preparing for hibernation as we walk into winter.

 In this issue you will meet three new artists, Erika Reyes, Irene Lam, and Wendy Rodriguez, all of whom I met at the San Diego Zine Fest last September. I’m stoked to share their messages of self-care, transformation, and humor. Returning contributors include Iris Orpi, Inisa Fajra and Jasmine Farrell.

 There is also a new section celebrating the accomplishments, services and products of all contributors, including books, zines, and well being.

 I hope you’re enjoying each issue of Radical. I put a lot of work into editing, formatting and promoting each issue. I love meeting new artists, connecting with regular contributors and sharing so much creativity and self-care with all of you!

Radical Peace: The May/June Issue

 Summer is here and I am feeling rejuvenated. During my 8 months of traveling I realized that changes in my life and work were necessary. One of those changes was to improve Radical. I really want this zine to be successful in it’s mission of encouraging self-care practices and promoting independent artists. 
 The most obvious change is switching to a bi-monthly format. This will give me more time to promote the zine and increase the content. Thank you for reading Radical. I hope it inspires you to live your truth. The theme this issue is peace and includes work by Iris Orpi. You can download the new issue on my Patreon page.
