Time to get inspired!

Carla - eccentric red head, once upon a time leg doodler, guerilla artist and wannabe zine author. Her favourite things include hot air balloons, buttons and postcards, and she has frequent dreams about getting her hands squashed in things. She has the neurological condition, Synesthesia, which makes her attach personalities to the days of the week, months, and inanimate objects. If she had one wish she would probably wish to be a crazed super villain in a Batman comic book. She has an unhealthy obsession with Oscar Wilde and has an unhealthy phobia of being poked in the belly button.

Carla specializes in conceptual collage, bold watercolour portraits and illustration. Her art employs precise realism contrasted by explosions of colour, collage and detailed stitching. Her work evokes themes of childhood, dreaming and happiness. Hopefully her publications will help you understand her better.

Printing!

Posted on February 9, 2010 at 2:23am 0 Comments

After doing a little bit of searching online, I discovered that, not only does my home town (Brisbane, Aus) have a zine scene, we have our own zine library run by the council!


You can use the photocopiers (not sure how much it costs just yet) and resources to create your zine, and then you can just add it to the library for the world to see!


If you live in Brisbane, don't hesitate to become my friend! I'm looking for other zinesters to share this…

First Zine?

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 3:14am 2 Comments

Well I'm trying to find the time / inspiration to get my first zine off the ground. It's going to be a short illustrated story, about a girl who is born with pencils instead of hands.

First images are coming soon.

Also, I'm looking to compile a few zines with my artwork and writings, but I feel strange and a little self absorbed doing something like that. Anyone got any ideas for themes?
