IZM2015 day 7: Make some envelopes or postcards for postal week

Hello Everyone! Sorry for the delay for day 7′s challenge. Today was Goku’s first trip to the vets and I found out today I got a job interview so things have been pretty hectic then I had to make time to draw my postcards. I created 2, a wildflower postcard and Effy from the Deadbeats (I may digitally colour this one too…

7 – Make some envelopes or postcards for postal week

I've never made an envelope before, but it was very easy! I used newspaper from a local alt weekly (hopefully it works) I can't wait to start…

IZM -Day 7: Make a Flyer

At the office, it was pretty quiet so I tried looking around the web for an ecommerce site that I could use instead of Etsy. I started playing around with the layout and everything, and it was fun, so that when I got home, I couldn't stop thinking about it and didn't really feel like making a flyer. But I did what I usually do in situations where I don't really feel like doing something - I go ahead and do it anyway. Eventually, the pleasure of creation ensues.

So I did my flyer. I…

IZM - Day 6: Making Postcards

Keeping by my list of IZM activities (with one day ahead), today I did the day 7 activity of making postcards and envelopes. But I only made postcards because I already have some pretty cool envelopes.

So I made two more postcards for my Alternative Jerusalem postcards collection. I already have Proud Jerusalem, Queer Jerusalem, Feminist Jerusalem, Nightly Jerusalem, and others. Now, I give you Metal Jerusalem and Slutty Jerusalem!

These will also be available on my Etsy shop…

IZM 6

So for day 6 of International Zine Month I updated my Zine Wiki and also my profile on We Make Zines! I wasn't able to participate in day 3 because I don't possess a disposable income and I wasn't able to participate in day 4 or 5 because I literally don't have any zines yet, but I will still try my hardest to participate in all of the days i'm able to!

International Zine Month

I've been doing stuff each day for IZM.  I've never fully participated, so this year I am!  And I'm writing about it.  Gonna make a zine about it.  It's pretty fun!

A new zine is in the works...

....two, actually.

For the first, due by the end of summer:

I have some miscellaneous essay-type things to share and hopefully a slew of band interviews--a rarity for my zine. Topics include vinyl records as memory collection, human time and conscience in the context of geologic and cosmic time, and more.

The second zine will probably take some time, being a long narrative covering Tracy and my growing interest in birding, ornithology, and other naturalist…

IZM - Day 5: Updating ZineWiki

I tried, it didn't work. Mainly because I don't really understand their system. I mean, I managed to post my zine in their listings... I think. But I don't know how to add photos and stuff. It looks like everything has to be embedded or something, and the HTML looks completely foreign to me. Anyway, I decided to give up. Maybe I'll see if I can find a template to make my blog into an online store or something. Then I won't have to pay any Etsy bills and stuff.

I can't wait for…

IZM - Day 4: Organizing my zine collection

Yesterday's activity was to read a zine from a country other than yours... I'm in Israel. I ALWAYS read zines from countries other than mine. So I skipped that activity and decided to do the one intended for today - organizing my zine collection. It was a good goddamn thing I did because my zine box was on the verge of explosion. 

I kept all the zines I really liked and got rid of those that I didn't particularly like (there are some of those, you know), and now I made space in there…
