I just finished #3 in my mini-twenty-four-hour-zine series. I love this little series because it takes only a short time to finish a whole zine. I also love the challenge of drawing in small scale and trying to convey a message.
The zine's theme is Problems and Solutions. It is all about the problems we have as artists that keep us from moving forward in our dreams and goals. The specific problems in this zine are one's that I am…

Theme: "Fruits of our own fantasy – that’s what we can love truly and worship..."
This is a mail-art project devoted to 200 year anniversary of Russian poet of the 19th century Michael Lermontov. The image of Demon is one of the most important in Lermonov`s art. His Demon is an angel banished from the sky but not accepted by the earth. Obsessed, impassioned, rejected by… Continue

It hasn't been easy, what with power cuts, computer viruses and more, but we are finally laying out the first issue of the monthly art zine The Art Pages.
It's such an important venture for artists here in Zambia who are so talented but little known. Now is their chance to share their talents, as they are the writers and producers of the zine. I have been helping them with promotion and can honestly say I am proud to be part of this… Continue

I know this is meant to be a blog post, but I can only hope that someone reads it.
I am trying to start another mini-zine (my other mini-zine is a perzine called Army of Her) called Grrrl Power and it's all about female empowerment. I feel that with the everyday bombardment by the media, women are feeling more and more isolated as higher and increasingly impossible standards are expected of them, as well as, not being expected to succeed. Really self-contradictory.
Anyway, I… Continue

A couple of my Junk Drawer zines are currently in an art exhibit about mass consumption and the environment. It's taking place at AE Studios LIC, in Queens, New York. If you can't make it to the show, you can still see most of the artwork on the site for Art for Global Justice, which is the group that organized it:http://www.artforglobaljustice.org/exhibits/excess/excess.html

Hey my names Nicole, I live in Adelaide, Australia (for now). I’m a socially awkward person, I’m currently studing film photography. I collect Records and old cameras. I love music, mixtapes and mail art, baking cupcakes, taking photos, live music, and my typewriter. I keep a visual journal, I'm vegetarian, I have tattoos, a cat named Chetta-Bob and the best friends in the world.
I recently started a per zine called ‘It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.’ containing my… Continue

There is a Junk Drawer display at the “The Opportunity Shop” in Hyde
Park in Chicago.
The shop is a temporary experimental project space. It is located in a former Hollywood Video store that has been totally redone as a community art center.
The Junk Drawer set-up was created almost entirely out of stuff found at
the space: sets of drawer, and display racks that were previously used
for DVD’s. Zines are for sale, and there’s a drawer full of odds and
ends you can… Continue

Don't know if you get many people on here just entering into the whole dipping-my-toes-into-the-water phase of zine making/reading (i'm attempting to do both) but my first attempt at making my own zine turned out...let's just say, amateurish. Truthfully, i mishmoshed it all together collage-style (clippings from magazines and papers) in two days, and put it together with a paper-mache-like glue, and thread binding.
I tackle things headlong and without… Continue

Hah. Spot the Ning noob. Only just found this entire section for blog posts. Woopsie.
Spose I should write a little bit in here. Been working on mélange #2. Almost 2/3 of the way through - hoping to have it finished in the next couple of months. Yeah, I know that's slack, but I like to take my time with zine projects - put some thought into them. Don't know if that comes across, particularly when the iterations of editing result in something minimal. But I suppose art is like a… Continue

Welcome to H.O.P.E. (Healing through Our Personal Expressions)! I decided to begin this zine in order to offer consumers a place to express themselves. It is said that healing often comes from self expression, no matter what the form. In some case, people feel better after journaling their thoughts and experiences. For others, writing a poem or painting are ways to help on the path to recovery. "It is a well known fact that writing has a positive effect on an individuals sense of well being,"… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Where are thousands and thousands of statues buried?
Xian China. Near the mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. Farmers
were drilling a well and they discovered an underground, terracotta army of full sized: soldiers, weapons, horses, carriages - the works.
About 8,000 statues total in 3 main pits.
We may have one winner here - status pending. For the rest of you
