It’s the perfect weather for zine reading on the front porch. Here are some recent reads. ☕️🍂 Rambling side note: I think I might start doing zine review vlogs on YouTube? Because I read a LOT of zines, and because it’s difficult to review them here. I started this Instagram as a zine-review micro-blog, but it’s really moved past that and is becoming a different sort of place, a place for capturing memories. And how many zines did I actually ever review here? I think video might be a better/easier format. We’ll see... 😊
Fall is finally here: the cool, breezy weather and grey skies and falling leaves. I spotted a crow atop my office building as I left work, and it cawed at me as I biked out of the parking lot. Is there any sound that better suits the start of autumn than a crow caw? The windows are open and the cats have all chosen a sill to sit on. T and I are going on a bike adventure in t-minus one hour. The new issue of @razorcakegorsky arrived in the mail. To quote the Cure: it’s Friday, I’m in love! 🌜🍂
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!
