We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

this is the sobriety issue.

i recently reached two years sober & felt it was time to share my story of alcoholism & my recovery. this is the story of how i hit rock bottom & how i got (am getting) better. it may be triggering or it may be comforting, probably both. 

from sub rosa #7:

I laid in my bed and stared at my wrists trying to ignore the pounding in my head and ache in my belly that was telling me it was time to start drinking. I laid in what was actually a bed in the spare room of my mother's house that I called my own after being kicked out of my apartment almost a year before. I laid there and thought about how my mom and my sisters were on the other side of that door and how they had been woken up at three am by the police all because I had once again got black out drunk.

I had gone to my local dive bar for trivia and whiskey, a weekly routine (the trivia part, the whiskey part was a daily routine). I’m not sure what happened that night but it involved me drinking way too much and instead of trying to find a place to sleep I crossed Main St. and waited for a bus. But the bus never came or maybe it did, I don’t know. I was passed out drunk in the gutter of my postcard perfect town until about three am when I was awoken by cops. My memory is so hazy. I know they asked me what I was doing and I know I said “waiting for the bus” because I remember her saying “it’s three, there is no bus” and I remember being handcuffed and helped into the back of the police car. Then nothing until I woke up handcuffed to the wall in the holding cell. The cop was asking me if there was someone she could call and I told her “no”. There wasn’t. All my friends were probably drunk. She took my phone, scrolled through it and dialed “Mom”.

Issue three is the newest issue of Cadillac Girl zine. It is about how my life has changed in the past six years since the last time I published Cadillac Girl; being a mother, a wife, and finding myself again. My zine includes writing and artwork from outside contributors/fans/readers. I should be hitting the copier up on Thursday so I can get some copies out. I also submitted it to a few distros, so hopefully it will get picked up. Check out the website http://cadillacgirlzine.webs.com

This latest zine is a nice improvement over the previous three issues I have done.  I've taken the lessons I learned over the years, and have added pages, printed it on quality paper, and it is now in full color.  Each one is printed with care, by me, in my studio.

The quick details:
-22 pages, quarter sized, full-color, staple-bound, art zine (mostly drawings, some text)

The issue:
This issue focuses on my sketchbooks.  It includes drawings, paintings, quotes, and thoughts that I have collected in many sketchbooks over many years. Instead of being about my finished artwork, this zine is about the body of work that quietly supports my final posters and cartoons.

Right here on Etsy.

I just finished this for the 24 hour zine thing. Feel free to contact me for trade. 24 pages of hand written, lightly illustrated perzine. Train of conscious thoughts on zines, getting older without getting old, feminism, hand lettering, and what I am currently listening to as an exercise playlist.

i created 22 zines between the ages of 17 and 19. That last one was put out 16 years ago. I'm back to making zines now and am totally loving getting back into the swing of it. This is the first one I've created since all those years ago. It's a coloring zine that I drew and journaled about my road trip to Florida to drop my daughter off at camp. My zine series is called "Welcome to my Life" and it will chronicle the every day aspects of living as a wife, mother, artist, and full time college student with 2 crazy kids, a crazy husband, 3 crazy dogs and 2 crazy cats. 

My first zine is available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/103716360/zine-east-coast-road-trip-nar...

I realized my daughter took my colored pencils with her to camp for 6 weeks and I'm so excited that I got new pencils today so I can color in my own zine.
