Monday, Monday, Monday. Be kind. Haha. Hello, zine friends. Welcome to the start of a new week – if, in fact, Monday is the start of your week.
For today’s prompt, we have something I love doing… sharing the love.
Sharing is Caring – Write/Share about any zines/makers that/who inspire you
As much as I love sharing the love, I also get a little anxious because I feel like I’m always going to miss someone – and of course I want to mention all the people. So if I don’t mention you, please forgive me!
*Nichole/Pieces series – https://www.instagram.com/corridorgirl/ – Nichole is one of the first friends I made in the zine world and someone whose zines I identified with strongly. I’m pretty sure one of the issues of Pieces is the still the only zine to have ever made me cry (in a good way).
*Fishspit – Fishspit is another person I met very, very early early on in my zine journey. He’s always given me so much support in all the zine things I do, and he has one of the gentlest souls I’ve ever encountered.
*Karley – Karley makes the third person I met in my baby zinemaker days. She invited me to join my first ever collab zine (that I wasn’t organising myself) called The Filth. She inspires to be more unapologetic in what and how I create.
*Ryan – https://www.etsy.com/shop/pocketthoughts/ – Ryan is a great guy who inspires me with all of his creative ideas in zines, art, YouTube, and more. He’s a very skilled artist and has a great sense of humour.
*Nina – https://echopublishing.wordpress.com/ – Nina is such a supportive and kind person who inspires me to keep creating zines. Chainsaw Bunny is a long-time favourite of mine, and Nina’s art is absolutely lovely.
*Rich – https://www.instagram.com/feralpublication/ – I’ve talked about Rich a few times in regards to Feral Publication. I’m always impressed and inspired with what Rich is doing as a business, creatively, and to build community.
And, of course, all the ZineWriMo participants! ❤ And many many more people!
What zinemakers/zines inspire you? I’d love to know.
