Aijung Kim of Firefly Blind Press

Hi everyone, I'm a 32 year-old artist who LOVES to make zines. At the rate I've been going, it's about one per year, but I'm hoping to change that.

I am currently working on the 4th issue of Minutiae, an illustrated zine serial with observations and writings about my life. I have also created several illustrated poem-zines. I've even taught some zine classes before! Those are some of my favorites to teach. I love passing on the utter freedom and joy of creating zines.


I also enjoy art, writing, bicycling, peanut butter, books on tape, gardening, cooking, reading, children's books, and comics.

The zine "Genius (Love)" has been out of circulation for 4 years because I never found the time to screenprint the covers! I decided to re-do the cover so I can just…

Heya, all of your stuff looks wonderful; I wondered if you'd be up for doing a little trading? Possibly for 'Minutiae' 3 if you still have any; it looks amazing :)
Cheers; just let me know if you'd like to. Hope you're well! :)

Hello! I am really new to zines and I love perzines, but i'm finding it difficult to get hold of them here in the UK, does your free zine offer still stand? I can send you my address if it does :) I don't mind paying for postage either though you said you'd pay! X

24 Hour Zine Thing

Each July, the 24 Hour Zine Challenge asks zinesters to create a 24-page zine from conception to final product in 24 hours straight. Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.

Eco Zinesters

I guess this is kind of vague, but I'm amazed no one made this group sooner. This one's for people who consider the environment within zine-making, whether by writing about it, using recycled paper or whatever :)xoxSee More
