We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I have just released my first zine - a collaboration with twenty up-and-coming illustrators called 'The Music One'.

A little more info;

'The concept of this zine is simple - take a handful of music-obsessed
illustrators and designers and ask them to do a portrait of their
favourite musician or band. Then get each contributor to write a few
words about their favourite record by their chosen muse.

This was something of a dream project for me to compile as a self-confessed record nerd and illustrator.

Contributors;

Marcus Oakley
Lewis Heriz
Ben Javens
Lizzie Stewart
Henry St Leger
Jake Blanchard
Alex Jako
Darryl Norsen
Tom Fewings
Mark Oliver
Peter Locke
Dominic Dyson
James Fry
Stewart Easton
Joseph Blakey
Graeme Ross
Matthew Williams
Damon Unwin
Mat Pringle

The eclectic range of musicians covered include the likes of The Beach
Boys, Johnny Cash, Francois de Roubaix, Will Oldham, Todd Rundgren,
Raymond Scott, Bruce Springsteen, Vivian Stanshall, Porter Wagoner and
John Zorn amongst others.

The zine is 40 pages, A5, grayscale and has a screen-printed cover. The
initial run featuring Henry St Leger's portrait of Vivian Stanshall on
the cover is limited to 150 copies coming in a variety of different
colours.'
