Y’all. How can it be that December is already almost over? 🤯 If I’m being honest, I’m actually really excited about 2018, and I’m ready for January to get here. ______________________ Zineland updates 🌀 1. I’m taking over @cherry_pit_collective this week. 2. My etsy will be reopened and restocked on Wednesday, January 3, with old zines (pictured), and new zines, and patches (you’ll have to follow my @cherry_pit_collective takeover if you wanna sneak peek of those!) 3. I’m planning a workshop in February for Valentine’s day! About perzines, and self love, and telling your own story! 💝
A giant haul of mini zines! All of these were created last weekend at Zine Harvest. 👌🏻
Snaps from Zine Harvest 2k17. It was pretty darn cool, if I say so myself. 😎 Mega thanks to my fearless co-facilitator Jess, Imagine That! for being our gracious and giving host, and (most importantly) everyone who came out and made a zine! I am blown away by how creative y’all are and by the sheer variety of the minis created: comix, perzines, collage-art... even a math zine! I hope that we’ll see all of y’all tabling at KCZC #4 😉
Local friends: a week from tomorrow, I’ll be leading a free mini-zine workshop at Imagine That! Kansas City as a part of KCZC. 🍂 We’ll provide the materials for you to create a 5-copy run of a 6-page zine. Come get creative, socialize, and make trades. You’ll leave with your own zine harvest! 🍁 The workshop is November 18 from 2pm to 4pm at 2010 McGee Street. You don’t have to stay for the full two hours; this is a drop-in workshop. Hope to see you there! 🧡💛💗
Thanks to everyone who stopped by my studio during Wanderfest; today was a blast! 🧡💛 A confession: I had a bad case of imposter syndrome leading up to today. It was my first time selling my zines at an event outside the zinester community, and I was pretty nervous how they’d be received by a broader public. But my fears were totally unfounded: today was fantastic! 🤗 I’m so grateful to be a part of this community, and to have been given a studio space here.
Happy Birthdanniversary, Neither/Nor! 🎉🎈And thanks for all the cake. 🙃
CMC in PHX, Day Two 🌵 ______________________ Saturday was: journeys thru the Coronado Historic District, vegan doughnuts and cold brew, marveling at the seemingly endless variety of cacti (small, tall, squat, skinny, in every shade of green, and dusty purple too, barbed or fuzzy or bearing fruit), listening to podcasts, watching Law and Order SVU while putting the finishing touches on some zines, mural-spotting, antique-shopping, lunch at an old-timey soda fountain, and zine-shopping (plus the PZF open mic!) at Wasted Ink Zine Distro. 🦎🎤
