Van Girls interviews my dear friend (and Frontier #2 master)… Hellen Jo!

vansgirls:

Kick-Ass Chicks: Illustrator & Artist Hellen Jo

There are women you come across in life who make you feel like anything is possible, and inspire you in a number of different ways.  Hellen Jo is one of those chicks. We stumbled upon Hellen’s insanely awesome work one day while sifting through zines at the LA Art Book Fair, and were immediately drawn to her colorful illustrations that made us feel like we were looking through old photographs of us and our friends getting in trouble in high school. This week, we had the chance to sit down and chat with Hellen, and see what exactly drew her to a life behind the pen.

Read her interview now!

I&#8217;m very honored to be a Special Guest for this year&#8217;s SF Zinefest on August 30-31! Alongside Hellen Jo and Tomas Moniz, I&#8217;ll be tabling goodies from Youth in Decline, as well as speaking about zines and comics.
SF Zinefest is our local show, and one I&#8217;ve enjoyed attending and watched grow over the past few years &#8212; SFZF captures a great mix of SF/Bay Area zine culture, with art, activism, craft, and comics. I believe I will also be given a talk or have a spotlight interview panel thingy??? More details to come!
SF Zinefest is in a lovely spot on the edge of Golden Gate Part &#8212; and is free to attend, so I hope to see folks come by :)
Their site and further details are on their site/blog!
