Name: Juliana Salcedo
Location: Madrid, Spain
How about a brief introduction?
I am a Colombian illustrator living in Spain. I studied architecture, but realized that my favourite thing in the world was to draw little characters. I have been doing it all my life and finally, I have decided to make a living of it. Currently I am studying printmaking, while I promote myself. I like to travel, to go to the cinema and to walk.
How did you get involved with zine making?
Actually, this is my first zine. I did it for a Christmas sale in December that I was involved in. It has been a great experience and I think this will be the first of many zines.
Tell us what’s your goal when it comes to zine making?
I like to tell stories. I used to do comics when I was a kid, and making a zine allows you to do either a single story, or unrelated images. I am now looking for other stories to tell as well as for curious subjects that have been in my mind for a while.
Any favorite artists that inspired you to make your zine?
I love the work from Gemma Correll. I haven’t read a zine from her, but I can imagine the humour they must have.
What’s the one tip you’d like to share with people who are interested in making their own zines?
Think of a simple way to bind it!
