Chelsea Baker (organizer of OZF 2015 and 2016) began making zines in high school, but didn’t know what a zine was until college. Since then, she has produced an impressively large body of work, primarily comprised of the Daily Comics she started at the end of 2008. In almost seven years, she’s never missed a day. Her other non-fiction comics cover subjects as varied as the genetic science of Down syndrome and a first-hand account of sex work. She spent several years as the director of the Olympia Comics Festival and squanders too much of her free time making cutesy faces at cats.
