Bajito y Suavecito **BP Zine Awards 2018 Nominee**
Nominee 2018 Best Art Zine
from the author:
I am Chicana storyteller, bookmaker, literary educator and overall creative. I was born in Oxnard, Califaztlan in the early 90's and for the past five years I have been planting seeds in Chicago. I am very proud of my Purépecha lineage and my Mexican homelands of La Piedad, Michoacan and Guadalajara, Jalisco. My work aims to illuminate la belleza y fortaleza that blooms from my culture. My best work can be found in between pages filled with stories, fotos and art on wisely chosen paper, decorated with calligraphy and binded with my dad’s upholstery needles and thread. I come from a lineage of vendedorxs, craftsmen, and independent spirits.
