Ideas are like seeds or germs, depending on your outlook. Once they find some fertile soil they get nice a comfy and set about growing and propagating. My upcoming zine, in a practical sense took maybe a couple of hours to put together, this was because I had had various ideas floating around and they suddenly all fused together. Once I got it straight in my head there was no stopping me. I honestly can't say how long I had been mulling all the themes etc. over. So who can say how long a…Continue
