Not sure what a zine is...here's a great definition by a fellow LBZF team member, The Sarah Bennett...  Historically, zines (short for “magazine” or “fanzine” and pronounced “zeen”) were half-letter, spine-stapled paper goods straight out of a photocopy machine used by often-ignored underground communities in the pre-internet age to spread information quickly and portably (think: punkers, LGBT communities and science fiction fans).   The term is used today to describe all kinds of hand-made, low-circulation, special-interest periodicals produced without the help major publishing houses — from chapbooks to graphic novels to social-justice pamphlets — all of which are on sale every year at the Long Beach Zine Fest.

Long Beach, a City that supports the ARTS + ARTISTS, is a fantastic place to call home. Recently, the Arts Council for Long Beach approached me to create some awards for the State of Arts - 2015 event. I was able to channel my love for this City, passion for the arts, and be inspired by all the wonderful awardees into this collection. The piece above was created with elements from each of the awards for FUN to commemorate the experience.  Framed versions were presented to the Arts Council for Long Beach and the Office of the Mayor as a, "thanks for including me."

i heart Arts Council for Long Beach + i heart Mayor Robert.

Björk - The Anchor Song
I live by the ocean and during the night I dive into it down to the bottom Underneath all currents and drop my anchor As this is where I'm staying, this is my home
