a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hey you guys,
I decided to make my first zine ever. It's going to be called Badewannenoptik which is German and means bath tub optic or bath tub perspective. I want to fill it with drawings from different people which show their bodies taking a bath from their perspektive.
When you look down at your body, what you see isn’t always the most flattering view on it. That’s ok! Because I think taking this look at yourself is very sexy! Your body can look very differently from every perspektive. But your perspektive on your body is the one that really matters. It’s this realistic and maybe also curious exploration of the own body that I find so interesting!
So I'm looking for people who'd like to submit their drawing for Badewannenoptik-Zine. You don’t have to be an artist. You can think of yourself as an terrible drawer. There is no „technical quality“ expected from your drawings because I think these are subjective categories anyway. Not only the different bodies are interesting to me, but also or even more the different views on them.
You can censor certain genitals by hiding them in a bubble bath, if you like to.
[The original drawing above is not censored of course and the drawings in the zine also won't be censored but I think you aren't allowed to show nudity in ning-networks so ...]
The drawings are going to be published anonymously in the zine (unless you want it otherwise).
You can send your drawings to zersaugt[at]gmx[dot]de
or you can submit to the badewannenoptik-tumblr: http://badewannenoptik.tumblr.com/
