I was supposed to post about the results from this event awhile back. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes and I am certainly behind on writing about some recent artist events. Today I am also celebrating having access to a computer again! I haven’t had one for the last couple of weeks and golly, blogging sure is hard without a computer.
What is a zine?
I will leave the explanation of zines in the capable hands of Elouise Q, who started up the Smells Like Zines zine distro in Toowoomba in 2011.
“Zines are the pop-tarts of literature. Homebrew issues that expound the independent, the underground and the bizarre.”
You can stay in contact with Smells Likes Zines by following the link to their Facebook page here.
And now, I will show you the zines I made during my time at the YouthConnect TRC Youth workshops. Once again, I have compiled their features into a series of visual montages with the aid of Muzy;
This last zine was very ambitious. One A4 sheet, folded, cut and thrice-sewn along the spine to create a whopping 16-page zine. This was for maximum comedic effect.
Guess who also learned how to draw the simplest of scrolls over the week?
