Booklyn takes on the 24 Hour Zine Challenge this weekend, 1pm Saturday - 1pm Sunday.
I’ll be working with Jason Roy 12am midnight on saturday to 1pm on Sunday, sleeping on the floor, watching movies, drawing, and drinking lots of coffee. Come by, keep us company, and collaborate on a zine with us!
cat therapy! psychics! allergic reactions! soul mates! the desire to scream in the library! tarot! and i transform under a handmade quilt into a butterfly with the help of magic mushrooms! all written on a jumpity typewriter and created in under 24 hours while confined within the walls of wicker parks’ venerable QUIMBY’S bookstore! 24 quarter sized pages and a special surprise! this is old skool 764 style zine DISASTER!
I am writing a 24 hour zine about my name/legal name change/how changing identity is self determination. Do you have a question about my name? Ask me and your question/my answer might end up in my zine!
Last year, I didn’t do it until the very last day of July. I made it incredibly daunting for myself. This year I’m hoping to do it no later than the 27th or 28th, just to make myself feel better, but I’m running out of days heh. I know I’m not alone in this.
Balm Girl #1 talks about my current experience as an amateur gardener
and starting a garden from scratch. There’s an large section discussing
some of the herbs I chose to grow for both medicinal and witchy reasons,
as well as helpful weeds and my house plants. Other content includes
tracing the inspiration of my ideal garden, famous gardens I’d like to
visit, and a couple of tea recipes.
This zine was written for the
24-Hour Zine Challenge put on by the 2016 Portland Zine Symposium. I
didn’t finish the layout in time, but all of the text & illustrations
were created within that time period.
