VISITING BODEGA AVE.        

Bodega Ave. is a pop fantasy and ridiculous satire based on a group of teens living in Brooklyn, New
York. The diverse cast of kids reflects not only upon New York but most of the United States. Many of
these stories come from personal experience and memories of growing up amidst a neighborhood
of dreadlocks, braids, and
jewfros. Bodega Ave. is about growing up weird and out of place in the
world.  For those of you who have ever felt the same way as a child or adult, Bodega Ave. is the
place for you!

Tara Lopez – Artist
                   Tara is an immigrant from Staten Island (AKA “Da Dump,”
                       or “Shaolin”), now living in Brooklyn. She is an alumnus of
                           Parsons School of Design (No, I don’t know Tim Gunn but
                              sure wish I did), where she majored in Illustration and
                              animation (Like Rob Zombie). Currently, works as a
                           freelance illustrator and full-time Graphic Designer…
                         Oh, and comic artist .

                                                               



                                 Aurin Squire – Writer
Aurin is from Opa Locka, Florida. A place nobody has ever heard
of that causes people to get a quiet and glazed-over look in their eyes.
For this reason he just says he’s from Miami, which always elicits a
knowing nod, friendly smile, and an occasional “Scarface” reference.
He graduated from Northwestern University and from The Actors Studio,
majoring in film and creative writing respectively. He has been a
reporter for various publications, including The Chicago Tribune and
Miami Herald. Due to a myriad of work-related projects he has spent
the past year traveling between New York, Florida, and New Mexico.

Tatiana Suarez Pico – Writer/Translator
                   Tatiana is a New York-based actress with writing aspirations. She has a
                       business degree in Marketing and an MFA in acting. Tatiana         
                           provides the lovely Spanish translations for the comic, is a story
                               contributor, and has many jobs to support her love of acting,
                                    which has made her poor in the pocket but not in spirit…
                                       which is where it counts the most.
