Pineapples is actually an untitled zine that I’m giving a title for the sake of making it easier to talk about. It’s an A7 black and white mini-zine on yellow paper about pineapples.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever felt grumpy about a zine. Haha. Only because I really don’t like pineapples.
All that aside, it does have some interesting pineapple facts. Nothing that makes me like them in any sort of way, but still interesting.
What makes this zine for me is the last page with what I think is a laugh out loud revelation about Zoe. I don’t want to spoil it though.
Interested in pineapples? Check out this zine.
Hello, dear and wonderful zine friends. I hope the mid of the week is treating you well, and that good things have been coming your way.
Today, I am very happy to share the next episode of The Zine Collector: an interview with Sober Bob Monthly!
This is definitely going to be a rare occurrence for a number of different reasons, but I am so happy Sober Bob and I were able to work together to create this chat about so many zine things.
**This episode contains some adult language.**
In this episode of The Zine Collector, I chat with Sober Bob Monthly about zine pricing, risographing, zine culture, zine fairs, and so much more.
Please forgive some of the hiccups and technical difficulties.

Hello, and happy Monday, dear zine friends!
I hope your Monday is going well and that you’d not letting the bastards get you down. (An adjusted saying that Wanderer likes to say. Haha.)
This Monday is certainly better than last, and I am very happy about that. I am also happy to see autumn come to Australia. It’s not quite the dramatic show of colours that I grew up with, but cooler temperatures and breezy days are most welcome.
I have a short happy mail opening video for you today. I prattle on quite a bit, but I am hoping for these videos to be like a relaxed chat sort of thing. Hello, how are you, let’s look at the mail for the week. ^_^
And with that, I wish you all the best for the week to come. My brain is a bit fried thanks to a big project I am working on, but it will soon be finished up!
Until next time – make some zines!
I’m representing Sober Bob by one of my favourite zines by Sober Bob. 🙂
Amazing artist and zinemaker Sober Bob Monthly will be on 4ZZZ chatting about zines and all sorts of goodness – and you can listen in!
Go to http://www.4zzz.org.au, hover your mouse at the top of the page, and click ‘stream 102.1FM’ to listen! The show is on *now* but the chat will start in a bit over two hours from when I am posting this.
Share your call for submissions, let people know about your distro or zine library, announce your newest zine, let people know you are crowdfunding a zine project…
If you have an announcement to make that has to do with zines, do it here! Sea Green Zines wants to be your megaphone. Even better? It’s an automatic shout out on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr when your call is posted here.
Big fuzzy love hearts to those who have a .jpg call for subs, but all are welcome. Get in touch by emailing theauthor[at]inkyblots.com or comment below.
The Little Things
The Little Things is an A6 black print (mostly) on blue paper zine about mental health and self-care techniques.
If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know I love a good self-care zine, and Lily really takes it to a new level in The Little Things.
The zine starts off with an introduction to self-care and how a suggestion from a psychologist helped to create this visual self-care list. This isn’t a text-only list, however. Each self-care suggestion is given its own page, but more than that, they all come with a drawing as well to illustrate the list item.
Lily’s art style is very realistic and detailed. There are so many little things that made me smile as I looked through. The Sailor Moon drawing in ‘Drawing for Myself’ and the roses on the teacup in ‘Drinking Tea’… The suggestions are good in and of themselves, but the art adds a different dimension. I feel calmer and in a nicer space just paging through and looking at the pictures.
When I finished this zine, I realised how much I liked the details included in the introduction of how this zine came to be. Whether intended or not, this has inspired me to make a list of my own.
If you’re interested in self-care and/or an artist you may not be familiar with, I recommend checking out this zine.
Bianca B & Hollie F
Weird Dudes is a black and white A8 collab zine of weird dudes. Bianca wrote descriptions for Hollie’s weird dudes, and Hollie wrote descriptions for Bianca’s weird dudes.
This itty bitty zine is full of very cute and funny itty bitty drawings. Each drawing comes with its own often-amusing description of the weird dude pictured.
I really love this idea and wish I had some drawing talent so I could do something like this. This whole zine feels like a lot of fun, and it’s clear the artists weren’t taking themselves too seriously.
Grab a copy for a smile.
