Cristy C. Road, frontwoman for Choked Up, artist, and activist, made her presence known in the punk scene as a teenager with her fanzine, Greenzine. Since then, she’s contributed countless illustrations to political organizations, album and book covers, web and print publications, and more. She’s published three illustrated novels: Indestructible, Miami: Bad Habits, and Spit and Passion. She’s also the creator of Next World Tarot, a tarot deck which features radical characters of diverse cultures, colors, and sexualities. Her artwork is revolutionary and serves as a visual soundtrack for societal issues and Latinx culture.
