This is a mini zine that I created for the Mini Zine Folks group swap (09). It fits into a standard envelope, is black and white and 16 pages. Because it's shiny an new, I've put it in a foil embossed koi envelope I found at the asian grocery.
The zine features pages from my sketchbook drawn especially for the… Continue

From an Etsy buyer:
Interesting work. I lean towards the second issue: I like the smaller
size and the greater contrast of dark and light in the pictures - I think the greater contrast allows the viewer/reader more access to the book.
Lets see, one of my favorite
pictures is in the first book - the one where you wrote: When dealing with nature....
very strong image. I like Zines that have strength of vision - ones that reach
some truth… Continue

After learning that tomorrow I have to take tax stuff to Elizabeth at my Dad's office I decided that I would spend part of today making the second volume of Book Art even though I have a million other things I should be doing. I rationalised that I am opening a gallery/artspace soon and I need things to fill the shop section.
These are some… Continue

Just finished issue two of my zine "Creatures and Dreams". It's a kidzine (if there is such a thing) and has lots of holiday activities, stories and drawings to keep one entertained. Technically it is for kids, but adults buy it too. One of my customers brought in her copy to show me last markets, she'd used watercolours, was lovely.
For the cover I ripped up all my old art magazines and made paper cranes from the images. The cranes are… Continue

Most afternoons I put on my favourite music and have a dance. Today it was to the Ministry of Sound Annual 2006, such a classic album. I bought it for a ski trip to Beaver Creak USA, Nothing quite like double diamonds to a thumping beat, I highly recommend it for mogals. Personally, I don't see the appeal, powder is so much better.
Each to their own.

Since I'm on a bit of a zine kick lately and had a few proposals to write up, I thought I would create a portfolio of my artworks in zine format to send out with applications.
If anyone wants to see a copy and leave me feedback I would be beyond grateful, seriously, eternal… Continue

Having done a lot of research into the world of zines, and the unfortunate discovery that printing an A5 full colour zine is not at all cheap, I've spent today mucking about with layout and print settings and have finally managed to squidge Book Art into a much smaller, envelope friendly size. Much cheaper to print, easier to post, and the pictures still look lovely.
Feel so much better ;)
