This Coloring Zine was created as part of the 2018 Alley Cat Writer's Residency.
It is a project of 24th Street, which sits on unceded and occupied Yelamu, Ramaytush Ohlone land. It was conceived as my mind raced about values and art wandering the aisles of Casa Lucas Market contemplating Alley Cat Books Writing Residency. I furiously typed my application in my phone sitting on the corner of 24th Street and Harrison. Three quarters of the conversations took place in Alley Cat Books (ill smoke from the Paradise Fire at times dictated other locations). I held office hours at the bookstore every Monday from October 15 to December 10, 2018.
And a core group of artists with whom I chatted have deep ties to 24th Street either by being born and raised in The Mission or living / working / creating in the neighborhood for over a decade.
