Today, June 9, 2018, marks the fourth annual happening of Paper Trail, an event designed to highlight paper-based art, design, and printed media. From 11am to midnight, more than 40 artists will be on site at Brick, the new venue space at the Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio, hocking their zines, prints, patches, buttons, and everything in-between.
This year’s iteration of Paper Trail is organized by the San Antonio artists and designers involved in Black Moon Print and the gallery/shop/studio space Creative Creatures. Some of the vendors participating in the event include Austin-based Cattywampus Press (which recently published King of the Commode: Barney Smith and His Toilet Seat Art Museum), San Antonio-based artists Cruz Ortiz and John Johnson, and San Antonio and Baltimore-based Sybil Press. See below for a full list of exhibitors.
If you’re on the hunt for more print media across Texas, keep an eye out for the San Anto Zine Fest, Zine Fest Houston (which has a zine release party on June 15th at Bill’s Junk), and the Lone Star Zine Fest, which is currently raising money for its 2018 iteration.
