Neither/Nor Zine Distro is one of the best things happening right now in KC. Our zine scene wouldn’t be half as vibrant as it is today without the hardwork Jess has put into this distro, her workshops and KCZC. I usually don’t enter giveaways that require reposts because I like keeping the aesthetics of my grid intact (yea, it’s silly, I admit it) but I have to share this one, because Neither/Nor is a force for all things good and diy, and will always have a special place in my heart, as they were the first place to distro my zines! They’ve almost hit 1k followers, so if you aren’t following them yet, you should do so now. Plus, you could even win some cool stuff if you regram this! Win-win! 💗 #neithernor1000
KC Zine Con 4 was every type of magic, all the good vibes, the very best day of the year. I only made it to about 20% of the tables, but I still ended up bringing this massive haul home! 💗 Thank you to everyone who made this beautiful thing happen, from my fellow organizers, to all the zinesters who tabled, to our great sponsors, volunteers and helpers. 🌟💗😊 Words can’t convey how important our little zine community is to me.
HAPPY ZINE CON DAY! After months of planning, blood, sweat, tears and a whole lotta coffee, the best day of the year is finally here! 💗 I’m at table 51! Come find me!
Worked on something a little different in studio today. Not a zine, but zine adjacent. ▪️⬛️▪️ Also, I just saw Japanese Breakfast in concert and they were all sorts of incredible. Happy Sunday!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared what zines I’m reading, so here are this morning’s picks, accompanied by a mug of cold coffee on the porch swing (gotta enjoy the nice weather before it heats up! 🔆🔥) . . 🔅”Familiar” by J.L. Merry 🔅“Posture #6: Riptide” by @createorperish 🔅”Backyard Fairies” by @phoebewahl 🔅”Carrot Facts” and “Eggplant Facts” by @gabbibrandini . . What zines (or books! or poems!) have you enjoyed recently?

Ahhhhh! This past week has been a whirlwind! 🌀 In less than 7 days, I’ve: biked 60+ miles on the Katy Trail while overcoming a gnarly bout of heat exhaustion (trail pics later, maybe?), camped, facilitated two zine workshops (Open Studios at the Drugstore and Zine Club at the Pit), dealt with a broken a/c during +90° weather (fml.), mulched+weeded half the garden... and somehow found time to fit in a couple of much-needed chores around the house. Lucky for me, it’s (mostly) been fun! Although, I’ll be glad when May is over! 😆💤 . . . . . #diy #collage #collageart #zine #zinester #howwedokc #kcmo #kansascity #makersgonnamake
