Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3

Everywhere All The Time #2: Bright Sunny Days, Dark Sacred Nights is the second issue of my travel media zine featuring stories from a year spent traveling and living in Ecuador. From hiking in the northern highlands to a shack on the Pacific coast, the zine spans terrain, time and mood through text and black and white photos. The writing is influenced by my identities – queer, mestiza, POC, feminist, writer, weirdo – and is cut by quotes from Junot Díaz, Gloria Anzaldúa and James Baldwin. 36 pages, typewritten/handwritten and some computer writing, black and white with color cover. Order (on Etsy) here!

GARDEN OF THE WOMANIMAL : CAROLINE PAQUITA

Opening reception + Zine Launch, Saturday April 12, 2014, 7 - 10pm

Booklyn Artists Alliance, 37 Greenpoint Ave, 4FL. Brooklyn, NY booklyn.org

RSVP on Facebook


The Booklyn Art Gallery is pleased to present GARDEN OF THE WOMANIMAL, an installation by Caroline Paquita and a small survey of thirteen years of drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures and zines.

GARDEN OF THE WOMANIMAL explores a recurring theme throughout the recent years of Caroline’s work, depicted in a wide variety of media, a cult of  “womanimals” half-women/half-wild animals are illustrated in landscapes of playful sexual scenarios, mystical adventures, and explorations of nature and the body. The womanimals’ corrupt playfulness and exuberance are contrasted by the meticulously clean line work of Paquita’s drawings and paintings. Newer works are surrounded by thirteen years of imagery demonstrating the evolution towards this theme and its stylized representation.

Culling works from her personal collection GARDEN OF THE WOMANIMAL creates an audacious yet welcoming environment of new and past works including drawings, paintings, screenprints, paper mache, sewn soft sculpture, wood sculpture, Risograph prints and zines. The installation is climaxed by Paquita’s  new artist book, published exclusively for the exhibition, compiling years of screenprints, publishing ephemera, hand-colored Risographs, and drawing reproductions into a beautifully hand-bound hardcover limited edition.

hey you feminists! the new wiseblood is out! #60  It's the "my eyes are wide open but there ain't nobody home issue" . . . read the only zine written by a sexist thug that is in love with a feminist!  Tales of asking for better goddamned cooking and getting supper dumped on my head, coming home from the factory to N.O.W. meetings, and having all my skinhead ruck and roll tapes taped over with feminist music because she said they were racist.  What's a poor boy to do.  It's hard being in love with a feminist. So order away ladies. It's wiseblood and it's always free!

"FAKING OUT - a zine about orgasms and (not) keeping them real" is looking for submissions!

Fake orgasms can be a tool, especially for women, to get out of situations they start to feel uncomfortable in. But what else can they be? How do YOU feel about the possibility of faking orgasms? What are your experiences with it? Have you ever faked orgasms yourself? Why? How long did it take you to find out your partner was faking it all this time?

Tell your stories of up to 500 words!
Please send them to spleggzines@gmail.com
Deadline: February 28th
(Submissions can be anonymous)

- - -

You don't have anything to say about this topic but are interested in the zine and want to know when it's out and available? Send an email to spleggzines@gmail.com to be entered the "Faking out"-mailing list (don't worry: no spam, just zine info!)

"Inconceivable!" is a new zine dedicated to women who are not mothers - by choice. I would like for childfree women to be able to express how they think and feel and have a place to discuss how deeply the ideology of motherhood has infected our thinking about women and femininity.  I welcome and encourage any contributions anybody has!!! Message me!  Thank you!
