Well, a lot of shit has been going down in Jerusalem and I didn't get to any of the last IZM activities as a result.
On Wednesday night, I went to a show at a local bar with my husband. That was kind of a waste because we thought it was supposed to be a progressive metal show. Instead it turned out to be totally emo and our ears were bleeding so we left early but the night was already over by then.
On Thursday, right after work, I went to the Jerusalem…Continue

So my dog is finally doing much better, thanks the Goddess, which means that I can get on with my IZM!
The activities I missed out on are:
1) Submit something to a compilation zine: I'll have to ask/look around for such.
2) Cook with a recipe from a zine: I think I recall seeing a cool vegan recipe in one Amber's Fight Boredom zines.
3) Post photo of me with my zine: That's today's activity. I should have no problem doing that!
I should haul ass…Continue

More and more I've to admit that writing zines appears to be a lifetime’s job! Until today I’ve published three perzines: ‘Veill’ (July 2014), ‘Fixing A Hole’ (July 2015) and ‘Full Size Render’ (August 2015). These three zines show, with each issue, an without doubt increasing amount of honesty and individuality. I’m absolutely delighted with each of them but I still feel not fully satisfied, even the contents of these three perzines apparently don’t add up to what I want to say... I’m…Continue

There’s just one more month to send in your love-themed submissions for possible publication in our first ever issue.
I’ve been so happy with the submissions sent in so far. Don’t stop sending in your poetry, but I’m asking for an extra push…Continue

This time it really wasn't so much a zine event as it was a meeting with a friend at my house for a night of art and stuff.
But I did get a chance to work on my zine. I also changed my typewriter ink ribbon and the script looks so much clearer now!
Sadly, my dog was coming down with a coughing virus which made her throw up a bunch of phlegm all night. At least that's what the vet said this morning when we took my dog there after freaking out the entire night. I didn't sleep a…Continue

I got some stuff done yesterday mostly related to snail mail. I wrote a letter to my penpal, made a package of zines for trade and packed another box of zines to be sent to Boston for the zine fest.
So not much zine production but I got some stuff done anyway. That's besides the fact that I got my flight tickets to Boston!!!!! Haha!
Anyway, today, Day 27, I'm having a friend over for an art night, so I hope to get a move on with my zine.
More on that later on :-)

I haven't found one yet. I mean, I know how to make a perzine, cut and paste, a fanzine, a compilation zine, a zine designed by hand and on computer, a mini zine complete with the folds and whatnot, a post-its zine, a photobook...
About a week ago, I had the idea of making a "silent" zine, that is a zine that is made up of photos, drawings, collages and comics, and that has almost no words at all.
I think this is the zine "skill" I'm gonna teach myself. I don't know if it's…Continue

I had to make a one page zine on July 23, which I assume is a mini zine. so I decided to take that opportunity to make my own "mini zine" which I actually call a post-its zine because it's made out of a small stack of post-it notes. This zine is my End of Words zine about nonsense and it's the third issue of it, some of which is written in aweful broken German. I was planning on doing it on the 23, but that day was spent on a longass bus ride from Jerusalem to Be'er Sheva…Continue

I made my first legit fanzine. It's about I Love Lucy. You probably think you know enough about I Love Lucy, but I bet you don't. It's a great show and a great story.
I only have a few left after the zine symposium. Get it while ya can.
You can find the zine in my Etsy shop.…Continue
