Margaret Kilgallen (1967-2001) was a painter and a graffiti artist, a member of the Mission School art movement in San Francisco in the late 1990s, along with her husband, painter Barry McGee. Kilgallen was prolific in her short career, which ended with her death in June 2001. This zine is about my search for more information and insight on Margaret and her work, and tells the story of my own artistic journey as well as thoughts on art in general.
The pages were constructed by hand and then photocopied: layouts are composed of typed text, illustration, hand-carved rubber stamps, handwriting, and collage. The cover was block-printed from a block I carved by hand and printed on paper bag card stock.
Copies are available here.
