Th Art Pages, Zambia (Africa) - A Labour of Love

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…

Female Empowerment

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

Junk Drawer zines in an environmental themed art show

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:

It takes courage to grow up...

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

The Op Shop

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

Dipping my toes into the zine-making water...

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…

oh wow, a whole section on blogs?

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

Introducing: HOPE!

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
