So, I have a zillion ideas and rather than cram them into one big mish-mash, I am trying to seperate out some of my themes into more specific, focused ideas.
- Blithe Ire #1 -- Next to be ready to print; my art/lit mag that I've thus far gotten most of my material for by pestering friends. This one is pretty open-ended.... I have so far a really cheap recipe, some poetry, an article about collecting concert bootlegs, a philosophical rant, some short fiction... I still have pages to fill to meet my 36-page goal, so if anyone has anything to share, I'd gladly accept submissions! (Likewise for the rest of my work!!) I'm aiming to have this one printed by the first week of February, so the sooner the better!!!
- Junk #1 -- About creative reuse and recycling and just being green in general. So far this one is slated to have an editorial piece about the three R's, an article about worm composting, profiles of found object artists, a little column connected to my thrift store shopping magazine (ReStyle) with photos of outfits, and a how-to on making a lamp shade out of yarn. I would love to get more DIY projects using things that would otherwise be thrown away. Or any ways to reuse/recycle anything! Due out in March.
- ReStyle #2 -- Also due in March. This one will have a Think Spring feature with cute shorts and tanktops and whatnot, a Vintage Values feature (anyone super knowledgeable on vintage clothing? I would love to find someone far more expert than me to write the article!), and a section of the wackiest, craziest things we could find in our excursions to secondhand shops.
- Bean: Adventures in Baristaland -- My next idea is one about coffee shops. I am the assistant manager at a really awesome coffee shop and I love being a barista. I have so many great experiences there, so many great stories! So I am making a zine about it. That will probably hit the copier around April, so if you have any stories to share (I'd love to see a few in comic form!) please contact me! I very well may turn this one into a series as well, who knows??
I will keep this list up to date! (Or at least try!!!)
