Cristy C. Road
In 1997, I started writing a Greenzine, a zine entirely devoted to Green Day. That eventually evolved into narratives with more depth and more stories on sexuality, healing, anger, racism, and challenging the hetero-normative world that dismissed my ability to function. In 2005, Microcosm Publishing published my first illustrated novel, Indestructible. In 2008 Soft Skull published my second book, Bad Habits, and my more recent book is a graphic novel entitled Spit and Passion, on Feminist Press. Ive been working as a freelance illustrator [aside from this] since 2004; and have clients ranging from GQ and Jane Magazine, to the Young Womens Empowerment Project, Bitch Magazine, and The Progressive Magazine to tons of punk rock bands around the world. I perform lectures and readings at Colleges, Universities, bookstores, cafe's, and punk rock shows. Ive toured nationally and internationally with Sister Spit, an all-queer spoken word tour, and on my own, or with my band, The Homewreckers. Im currently working on a Tarot card deck with Sister Spit founder, Michelle Tea. At the end of the day, Im my own boss.
