If we're lucky enough, she may be coming to Ramapo in a few months! Here's a bit more information about her:
Cristy C. Road is floating in a pool of her own blood, sweat, and occasional tears. C. Road is a 30-year-old Cuban-American artist and writer. Blending social principles, sexual deviance, mental inadequacies, and social justice- she thrives to testify the beauty of the imperfect. Her obsession with making art [and her emotions] publicly accessible began when publishing GREEN'ZINE in 1997- a fanzine which was 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 the punk rock community. Eventually, she made friends, found solace outside of a single band, and began including blurbs on other punk rock bands, gender identity, sexuality, aimless travel, and radical organizing. Her preferred mediums are Micron Ink pens, Sharpies, Chartpak markers, fluid acrylic paint, and Photoshop. Today Road works as a freelance illustraor, aside from her personal goals in publishing. Taking both writing and visual elements a step more seriously, her visual diagram of lifestyles and beliefs have are currently in tune to the zine’s portrayal of living.
Unfortunately, due to legality issues, I don't want to include any of her artwork here but check out her
