Before I forget to mention this again- Light Grey Art lab currently has a zine show! The exhibition, Stacks, covers the last 30 years in the form of zines.

The year I tackle is 2006 - the year I met one of my best friends. The 3 part zine ‘Girl Crush’ goes through our preconceived notions of each other and blossoming partnership of silliness and panty banditry. 

All zines are limited edition! 

Consider picking mine up! If not in person then online: http://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/product/girl-crush-by-patsy-chen-patabot

Light Grey Art Lab has a show up in their gallery right now called “Stacks” that I was lucky enough to take part in. Artists were assigned a year between 1984-2014 and then asked to make a zine somehow related to that year.

 My year was 2004 the year that marked the beginning of one of my favorite shows, Project Runway. These pictures were taking while I was assembling the 75 zines needed for the show.

I have just returned from my whirlwind residency in Iceland.  Still resting off the jet-lag; but I have returned with myriad slices of captured light - both digital and frozen on film - which will soon begin their slow migration into the tangible world.  But as with all new things, islands and art alike, we just need carefulness…  :)

Hello, friends! Sorry about the lull in activity here– got sidetracked by real life for a bit. 

I’m back to tell ya I’m part of a zine show+exchange, STACKS, at the always-wonderful Light Grey Art Lab; the show chronicles the past 30 years, from 1984-2014. And, they’re for sale~ mine’s here, find all of them here!

For my year, 2012, I collected & illustrated friends’ memories from the year, as well as my own. This was my first time directly working w/ risograph printing, which was all sorts of cool. (Shout-out to Walker Mettling of Ada Books/Providence Comics Consortium, who printed all these babies, & to my buddy, Hope Anderson, who trimmed them all at DWRI Letterpress! Check ‘em out!)

Also, these ~beautiful~ photographs of it were taken by Light Grey Art Lab. (So many thanks to the whole staff… for being patient while I had printing issues & the like. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.) 

OH! I’m way better w/ updates on Instagram (my handle: estrhong), so if you’d like to see more of what I’ve been up to, head on over there! I post personal stuff from time to time… so hey, get to know me~!!
