a place for zinesters - writers and readers
My name is Miss Helen(aka Helen Astro) and I've been making zines for like 11 years. I did a zine called Astrogrrrl during the mid/late 90s, and other various titles since, including:
The Little Golden Book of Angst
Fly Away Bird
Le Petite Bakery
I do lots of other stuff, like knitwear design, web design, design design, pushing myself forward in the zine related media/panel world, illustration, art(wot I got into through being invited to do zine related art shows). I'm currently obsessed with cakes and have been milking the eff out of my concept "Le Petite Bakery" which is an imaginary world consisting of safe spaces to drink tea and recover and knitted cupcakes, cus they last longer than food ones.
I like heaps of stuff but what's most important to me is being really good to people, and to be honest and loyal and loving. I think we're all here to help each other, and we should take every opportunity that we can to connect on true meaningful levels. We've all got problems, and we've all lived different lives, but I know we can all help each other through this oftimes shitty world. Having said that, you've got to know your boundaries, you've got to protect yourself and the ones you love. There are some bastards out there!
Let me know if you wanna trade or something.
