Overview

Meet Liana Caudillo, a young Latina, who loves music and aspires to design album covers in her beloved San Francisco. Like many other artists in the city, Liana works at the de Young Museum Café. Yet, despite being surrounded by art all day, San Francisco's growing gap between rich and poor and its growing homogeneity become a challenge. Liana doesn't find the bohemian city she once dreamed about. Instead, she is surrounded by other service workers, who, like her, are struggling to simply survive. With the daily struggle consuming so much of her life, Liana wonders if she will ever find the time, the peace of mind, or even the inspiration she needs to pursue her dreams.

Author Biography

Liz Mayorga is a working class artist from Southeast LA. She was raised in her parent’s restaurant, where a strong demand for tacos and burritos taught her how to hustle, but where art didn’t seem to have a place. But luckily, she also grew up in the 90s, LA’s Punk and Hip Hop movements shaped her ambitions in DIY art. Liz moved to the Bay Area for college. She has since become an organizer of the San Francisco Zine Fest, and has self-published her stories and comics as zines. He stories are often about class and identity, popular culture, and horror. Some of her zines include: “Outgrowing Plastic Dolls,” “A Caxcan Guerilla takes over the Awkward Girl,” “Inked,” and “Monstrous Love Stories.” Her work has been featured in Tayo Literary Magazine, Apuentes Literary Journal, Atom Magazine, and Razorcake. She enjoys working with Youth and leading zine workshops.
