What Zines to Apply To?

Recently, there’s been a ton of scandal surrounding the McHanzo Zine, Bullseye. But it isn’t an isolated case; zines scam people all the time, though it’s almost always restricted to the smaller ones. 

As someone who’s participated in well over a dozen zines, many of the smaller projects simply never contacted me again, had absolutely awful management, or worse, never sent out ordered items. Zines are based on trust, and it’s absolutely awful that some chose to betray it! So how do you know which ones you should apply or order from? Look for these:

  • Make sure that the organizer is not anonymous, and has their social media and handles blatantly available. If they are anonymous, there’s nearly a certain chance they’ll drop it mid-way. If it’s clear, see what they’re like as a person, or if they have a large following.
  • Make sure that the moderator has organized zines before. People who haven’t organized zines before don’t have experience and often don’t realize how difficult it can be. And if they do run other projects, are those actually complete?
  • Make sure there’s more than one mod. Oftentimes, IRL can cause problems; if there’s no one else to pick up the slack, that’s also a huge problem. (On the other hand, too many mods can make the zine disorganized!)
  • Communication: Has the moderator made relevant info available? And if you’ve been accepted, do they regularly email or update you?
  • Graphics: Do the graphics seem well-made and aesthetically pleasing? Product placement makes a huge difference when it comes to preorders, and can absolutely mean the difference between not breaking even and success. If their stuff looks like crap, so will the zine.
  • Professionalism: If they are not well-organized or professional, that’s a sign that they probably won’t be able to handle everything a zine throws at them, and may discriminate against certain ships or people. 
  • Where do profits go? This is pretty important, and needs to established early on. Will it be split among artists, or go to charity? 
  • Is there support? Does the application post have at the very least 300 notes? If not, what about other posts? If they don’t have a lot of notes or followers, that means that not many people will apply, and not many people will buy. That also means a much bigger risks of the project failing, and much less people holding them accountable if they do.

For people interested in making a zine but have no experience doing so, I strongly suggest moderating one before organizing your own! 

That’s all I can think of right now! If there’s any questions, feel free to DM me. (If anyone else has any other suggestions, feel free to add. also, here’s my expenses template!)

I REALLY recommend Tsuritama.

It’s honestly one of my absolutely favourite shows and it’s all-around a wonderful story about finding passion, overcoming boundaries and building strong and meaningful friendships, also it has aliens so it’s pretty much perfect.

The main character, Yuki, is a character I hold very dear to my heart.
He’s a kid who deals with anxiety which this anime depicts FANTASTICALLY.
Everything Yuki feels and does, his drowning feeling, the inner monologue, the way his flashbacks at the end of the day are depicted, is on point with how anxiety feels to me. Being someone who dealt with and occasionally still deals with crippling social anxiety, this anime spoke to me on a very personal level and I absolutely adore the growth Yuki goes through in the short 12 episodes. 

Not only is anxiety depicted very well, but the interpersonal relationships between the four main characters develop EXTREMELY beautifully and naturally. Their friendships and how they behave within them makes a lot of sense with their different personalities. They are extroverts and introverts, they come from different backgrounds and with different motives and manage to create very genuine bonds with each other. I keep noticing new aspects of their relationships every time I re-watch this show.

I don’t want to say too much about the plot because I don’t want to spoil things, but it’s unusual, full of surprises, full of emotions, full of excellent character development, and it combines science fiction with fishing, of all things.

ALSO, IF YOU LIKE BRIGHT FRESH COLOURS, THIS SHOW IS ABSOLUTELY FOR YOU!!!

The colours in this show are some of the most comforting and pleasant palettes I’ve ever seen in an anime! It’s very bright and colourful and perfectly saturated to retain a general feel-good touch throughout the entire run.

I HONESTLY CAN’T RECOMMEND THIS ANIME ENOUGH. IT’S ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITES AND IT MAKES ME SO SO SO HAPPY.

“That summer I changed.
I finally found something I was really interested in.
I always had friends by my side.
And I even surprised myself
by how loudly
I learned to laugh.“

-The Most Interesting Stories Aren’t Always Action-

Here​ ​is​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of​ ​a​ ​few​ ​of​ ​my​ ​favorite​ ​engaging​ ​stories​ ​with​ ​a​ ​little​ ​less​ ​action.


Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​​ ​​-Drama- Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​ ​keeps​ ​me​ ​so​ ​invested​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story​ ​at​ ​all​ ​time,​ ​with​ ​loveable characters,​ ​just​ ​enough​ ​drama,​ ​great​ ​music,​ ​and​ ​well​ ​directed​ ​scenes,​ ​it​ ​proves​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​take an​ ​action​ ​packed​ ​fight​ ​to​ ​make​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​race.


Sakamichi No Apollon -Drama-
Maybe my opinion is slightly biased because of my love for jazz, but the way sakamichi no apollon explores romance, music, and the everyday drama and lives of these characters, had me hooked from episode one.


Beast Player Erin -Fantasy-
Now technically there is a bit of action in this series. BUT I would argue that the majority of the series is a coming of age/political story, with love both familial and romantic, and a touching story about the relationship between a girl and a magical beast, i’d say it’s worth a watch.


Mushi-shi -Fantasy-
Mushi-shi is a great story for those who enjoy the feeling of exploring in a world of fantasy. As it follows a man wandering the world following rumors of possible mushi, and helping others, you’ll find yourself sucked deep into a well built fantasy world with background music that you only WISH you had IRL.


Ristorante Paradiso -Romance-
This one is a little different from most others on this list, the story revolves around a woman off to find her mother and the man she left to marry. She finds herself uprooting into a new life working in the strange restaurant her mother and secret stepfather run, making friends, and falling in love, all the while no one knows she’s even her daughter.


House Of Five Leaves -historical drama-
This show has great characters and unique art and atmosphere that set it apart from other shows instantly. And if you’ve ever wondered “what would a show about samurai be like without all the actiony fights all the time?” this show answers that question.


Sora No Woto -Military-
Though it’s a military show, it rarely ever has all that much action. The show IMO focuses a lot on themes of hope in times of war, showing how it affects the people involved. It also focuses a lot on characters overcoming their problems and building relationships with one another in a kind of bittersweet way.


Hozuki no reitetsu -Comedy-
It felt to me like a good idea to throw in a nice comedy at the end of a list with so many bittersweet titles. Hoozuki focuses on “life” and Business in hell, with a dark and sometimes dry adult sense of humor, in a strange slice of life setting i found this show to be an enjoyable and a relaxing watch.

Sketching out the son—because I’ve suddenly gone into a teenie, tiny art block, but we’ll see how long it lasts. Drawing Prompto usually helps get me out of that rut, but sometimes he doesn’t…Maybe I need to change the pace a bit—watch some good ol’ anime or something LOL Oh well, hope you like the sketches tho! Might add color to them later!

anonymous asked:

I admire your style so much. I love your you can draw Asians in a cartoony style without it actually being remotely /anime/ imo, a good thing, because anime has such a bad stigma. I really aspire to have an original style like yours too and draw Asians peacefully without it being "anime" no matter how not-anime my style is

thankyou for your nice words, but there’re a lot of things that you’ve mentioned that….disturbed me?

1. my style and passion’s roots started with anime, it’s where many of us started, and there’s nothing wrong with having an ‘anime style’ and you looking down on it only perpetuates the stigma worse. I have friends in animation who struggle so hard because their teachers keep telling them that their style has to be more ‘western’, more ‘cartoony’, and you have no idea how damaging it can be.

2. asians do not look “anime”…… if you draw asians looking anime it’s just in your style,,, as mentioned before, nothing wrong with that

3. i’m more familiar with asian features because i am, in fact, asian.

a rant, aka “why everyone should watch ohshc”

my favorite thing about ouran is the complete lack of heterosexuality in the main cast, like

  • the main character is literally an asexual (and possibly agender) crossdresser raised by a flirtatious transvestite dadmom and everybody just goes with it, like no one ever gives her a hard time about it (except for tamaki but we later found out that he only tries to remind her that she’s a girl because he’s genuinely worried about her) or tries to tell her she needs to change. 
  • and as for the host club members, most if not all of them seem to be pretty laid back and flexible when it comes to sexuality (tamaki definitely was into haruhi even when he thought she was a guy, the twins act gay af half the time, kyoya and tamaki have that weird “mommy and daddy” thing, ect.). 
  • there’s an entire school full of singing lesbians.
  •  gender roles apparently don’t apply either; haruhi is tough and mature and independent and never feels like a damsel in distress.
  • did i mention the transvestite dadmom who NOT ONLY works to support his/her daughter and rocks at being a single parent, but is respected and accepted by haruhi’s friends.
  • that one story arch where kasanoda had a crush on haruhi but thought she was a guy and he just accepted it like “ok i guess i like guys now that’s cool”
  • (in the anime at least) haruhi never has a *sexy* bra and panties shot (she gets walked in on while changing a couple of times but it’s never a fanservice type thing), and remains independent and uninterested despite being surrounded by hot guys 24/7. because, you know, it’s possible to be just friends with someone even if they’re physically attractive. 
  • haruhi and hikaru go on a date and share a couple of romantic moments, but things don’t really work out and they both accept it and stay friends without either of them being bitter or resentful.
  • and none of this is even treated like a big deal? it’s all just accepted as the way things are? 
  •  basically this show is the best. end of story.

nngh it STILL kinda bothers me… how in the anime they showed kid tsubomi actually being impressed with mob’s powers and then growing “bored” of them… but in the manga she actually had no interest in them in the first place, and the lines from when she was impressed in the anime were taken from an omake that was mob’s dream……
