She's finally complete! And it was well worth the wait.
This evening I assembled my first zine evarrrrrr (titled M[Y B]IKE + ME) and you're looking at it. I have ideas for more zines coming out of my ears but unfortunately I've got to get all of that pesky school work out of the way. This weekend's going to be full of it. Homework party anyone? @erinmcphee and @ryanmacdonald hahaha
This small zine outlines the undeniable bond between myself and my vintage Raleigh cruiser, which often times feels humanistic.
All covers are handmade; each graced with a black lino cut stamp on cream Stonehenge print quality paper. Content pages consist of cutesy black and white line drawings and a handwritten narrative.
4.25" x 5.5" / 24 pages (excluding cover) / Staple bound
Here's a preview of what you'll find inside:
If you're interested in purchasing a copy I've posted them in my deserted Etsy shop for $5! Of course, if I know you personally, we can organize a face to face transaction. And if you're interested in a zine trade, you can find me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
As if this post isn't long enough...
It's been a while since I've posted anything school related. I'm usually not into the work I am forced to produce in class because the assignments rarely excite me. However, sometimes you have alright days in figure drawing class and you want to post pictures of naked people on your blog.

I think it's time that I make dinner and eat a full meal for the first time today. Frozen waffles hardly count and there's a head of broccoli begging to be boiled in the crisper.
