Fresh off the press: It's FruitYoga!

It's 20 pages of the total fun with fruits demonstrating yoga asanas or poses.
All illustrations were done by moi, in watercolor, with English and Sanskrit yoga asana terms.
Pages/cover were hand-sewn together.

Used some of these images to teach yoga to my ESL students! Great for language learning and calming the mind!


Been doing yoga for 3 years. Changed my perspective, life and overall well-being! And it's fun too :)

Limited edition of 50 copies.

See more images and order now on my Etsy!

Not Lonely #5 

A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy

The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.


Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.

Dunno if anyone's interested, but I have a 'zine that features anonymous performance evals from a state psychiatric hospital from the 1920s-60s.  If that's up your alley, message me!

Hi there! My zine Attack Panic! is available for trades. It's basically a big list of tricks I use to control my anxiety and panic attacks. It's 24ish pages. Quarter size. I think it's pretty neat. Shoot me an e-mail if you're interested!

The new issue of Reclusive Obscenities is now available. It's a 30 page quarter zine where I discuss my love of zines. Why they’re important to me, why I create them, how they helped me find feminism, learn to cope with my anxiety better, and more.

More information (and more zines) available here

Not Lonely #4
A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages

The newest issue of my perzine is loosely based around lists of 4. I write about self-esteem, liking "old lady" things, bad habits, the joys of tea, going back on anti-depressants, things I like/dislike in books (as well as a longer list of my favourite books) & pets, amongst other rants & rambles. I wrote most of the zine on an old typewriter, some parts are handwritten & it's all made in cut & paste style with pretty and/or vintage images.

Please take a look at my profile page for details on how to get a copy.

My (fairly) new zine Nearly Healthy contains writing about being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and depression, and about not feeling in control of things in general, from the perspective of someone who identifies as an anti-capitalist, artist and woman (among other things).

You can buy it from my distro, takecarezines.org, or directly from me at eternalproject@gmail.com, for AU$3, or I accept trades. Please get in touch if you're interested!

I don't want to blow my own trumpet too much, but here's what Luke You wrote about it for Broken Pencil:
"...I just read a zine calld 'Nearly Healthy' and it has honestly changed my life...For me this zine is a masterpiece. It is difficult, heartbreaking, beautiful, wonderful, personal, revealing, at times hopeful and at times bleak. This is a really substantial, serious and important work of art. The zine deals with life and death and I want to publicly thank the zinemaker here for sharing her thoughts. I think this zine has made the world a better place, it has certainly made my world a better place." Thanks Luke! And thank you all.
