Smiley Faze is Going Home – San Diego Zine Fest: October 5, 2014; 12pm–5pm


As you may or may not know, I come from sunny San Diego; North San Diego County, the city of Vista, to be exact. While North County may be a distinct experience as compared to the city of San Diego, SD is still my home.

All that said, I’m coming home on Sunday, October 5th, 2014 to represent Smiley Faze and my nonprofit, DSTL Arts, at the 2nd Annual San Diego Zine Fest.

San Diego Zine Fest 2014-flyer

Taking place from 12pm to 5pm in the Logan Heights neighborhood of San Diego (2196 Logan Ave, San Diego, CA 92113), the San Diego Zine Fest is going to be the venue in which I will be debuting a new poetry and photography chapbook that will be released in three volumes over the course of the last 3 months of the year. Ladies and gentlemen, I shall introduce you to “The Dokkodo.”

Don’t think you’re going to get a sneak peek right now though. You’ll need to be at the SD Zine Fest to be one of the first people to see and buy Volume 1.

Debuting a new chapbook alongside me that day will also be my beautiful fiancé, Jennifer Fuentes, of Crayón Literati. Her latest collection of short, memoir stories is being designed by me, and you’ll be able to buy a copy soon via my online store.

In the meantime, enjoy the rocked out video the punk-rock-happy people at the SD Zine Fest sent us all to help promote the event.

Peace, y’all.

Stop by our table to get deals on fine art and photography prints, and be the first to get a chance to buy my new photo book and zines that are debuting that day. “Diseño Divino” is a collaborative photo book made with the homie, Chris Tovar-Valles, and is produced using archival quality paper, and features over 40 photos! It’s coffee table book quality, yo. Plus, if you stick around, you might see me reading some new poetry along with my DSTL Arts students, and my partner-in-crime, Jennifer Fuentes from Arte Crayón Literati.
