GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Emily Parrish
What was your first zine about and when was it made?
Last year I teamed up with Kane Lynch to create Lake Cat, a zine which tells the 100% factual and true story of our search for a legendary vicious cat creature which lives in the Oakland hills.
Describe your most recent zine.
Most recently I have been working on Sunrise, a book which illustrates the oldest easter celebration in the country. It deals with ritual, music and community.
Of all the things you’ve ever made, zine-related or otherwise, what’s your one favorite?
In addition to drawing and printmaking I work with textiles, primarily weaving. In the last few years I’ve been aiming to bring my fiber work and printed work together, resulting in a series of pieces, some more aesthetically pleasing than others, which I’m most excited about. My current fave is a woven wall hanging incorporating printed strips.
