San Francisco, CA: On Saturday, I took the train down to the Bay Area to go to the annual SF Zine Fest. I last went to Zine Fest in 2010, and couldn’t wait to come to this year’s one. It’s held at the San Francisco County Fair Building. I came largely for inspiration, to see what other zinemakers are up to (mostly the ones who draw) and pick some interesting reads. One of several that I picked up was by Jeff Walker, “Space Rangers”, that was fun. I sketched the hall, tried to capture the scope of it, though it was bigger this year than three years ago. I have been putting together my own short zine of local bar sketches (“Davis, Bar By Bar") so it definitely filled me with inspiration.
