A little while ago I mentioned that I would be attending the next Auckland Zinefest.
I thought I had better follow that up with some solid information. The Zinesfest is a celebration of all things DIY and self publishing. Last year I really wanted to attend (as an exhibitor) but my book just wasn’t done in time. I did go as an attendee though, and was really impressed with the quality of work of all the people who were selling their own zines and comics.
I will be attending this year. I’ll have ActionMan Adam #1 for sale, as well as some t-shirts, and a very limited print I made. There are loads of great people who will have stalls this year. Including thisisrabbit, whom I have mentioned previously here in the blog. It will be good fun!
This year the event is being held in St Kevins Arcade, K Road in Auckland. It’s a good spot in town. Close to lots of good food, shopping – so if you live in Auckland, come on in to the city centre and make a day of it. There is a good kebabs place nearby. Good Japanese food nearby.
Also worth noting is the fact that after the Zinefest wraps up, there is going to be an after party! Held at venues in the arcade, and totally free. Musical entertainment for free! That is a good deal my friends.
Here are the important details so you can come meet me, say hello, and buy my comic and talk to other talented people:
Saturday – August 14 from 11am – 4pm and then after party from 7pm
St Kevins Arcade, K Road, Auckland
Hope to see you there!
Thanks for reading,
