Cristy C. Road is a 28-year-old Cuban-American artist and writer. Blending social principles, sexual deviance, mental inadequacies, and social justice, she thrives to testify to the beauty of the imperfect. Her obsession with making art (and her emotions) publicly accessible began when publishing GREEN'ZINE in 1997—a fanzine originally devoted to Green Day. The exclusivity of high art disgusted her, as she fell in love with a xerox machine and the creativity expressed through punk rock. She began writing about gender identity, sexuality, aimless travel, and radical organizing. Today Road works as a freelance illustrator. She has produced two illustrated novels, a book of postcards, and finished her first graphic novel 'Spit and Passion' in 2013. Taking writing and visual elements more seriously, her visual diagram of lifestyles and beliefs stay in tune to the zine’s portrayal of living. Aside from creating art, Road has been performing lectures and workshops of her work and politics in various environments ranging from The Portland Zine Symposium, The Latina Health Summit, and Duke University. Additionally, Road has been performing as part of SISTER SPIT: The Next Generatio, an all-queer spoken word road-show.
