Zines are one of the cheapest, most accessible, and fun ways of sharing information, stories, and art! Join artist, Margaret Huey, to learn about the creativity, community, and action we can enact with zines and how to make your own with common materials you have around the house. Materials needed: scissors, drawing materials of any kind, and letter-sized paper (i.e. basic computer paper). Optional materials: needle, thread, and bone folder and/or long-arm stapler.
Margaret Huey is a queer Thai-American illustrator, cartoonist, and educator based out of Baltimore, MD, forged in equal parts by manga, metal, mythology, and other things that don’t start with the letter M. Her practice is founded in using entertainment and genre fiction with queer, decolonial, and feminist ideals that hopefully get her audience to be a little more excellent to each other.
She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 2017 and has been working in museum education since 2012. Her educational work focuses on youth empowerment, art, and art history, focusing on helping guests & students gain lifelong skills in critical thinking, career preparation, empathy, and empowerment through artmaking and engaging with global narratives.
She also performs as DIE-TANIUM for Super Art Fight, the greatest live art show in the known universe.
