I am a zine maker (amongst other things...) currently recently based in York, now in Macclesfield, sometimes in Cyprus! I first started making zines last year, collaboratively with fellow ^Happycat^ Collective member Jade Blood. Since then we have both continued making zines individually, and we sell them at arts/crafts/book fairs.
I am also a postal artist (see my current postal art project at magpiethunder.wordpress.com >in progress< ), so if anyone would like to set up some sort of correspondence, send me a message and we can get some postal/zine exchange happening!
I like creatures of an ornithological persuasion, the colour green, brown paper, printmaking, treehouses, stationery, stamps, typewriters, black tape, lists, books, everything handmade, batwings and wingbacks. And of course zines.

I have been posting this project on mail art sites, but then I thought that since there will be zines in the exhibition (my own) I might try and make it open to zinemakers too. You can see pictures of my previous exhibition on my blog, which included mail art I received for that project, my zines/books, prints, and also a makestation where people could make their own mail art or zines. I've not done a zine call before, but to follow the… Continue
