Zines...
So i have started doing some art mail trades, which is super exciting.  last week i got my first envelope in the mail from Jessica over at Natures My Friend
Mountains Made of Fur
She sent me one of her first ever zines!  Totally exciting! Ages ago, before my life was invaded by monsters I used to spend many hours making zines and books.  It was sort of how I found my way into writing, illustrating and developing a creative voice.  Along the way I also met tons of inspiring people, most of which I still am awed by on a daily basis (this is a shout out to my Tuesday ladies Lindsay and Jaime).

So tonight i dug out some of my old zines and gave them a scan...and i think i just may challenge myself to dust off my zine making skills and try another this week:

Aw Rhya!!! Thanks for this lovely post. I am thrilled to be trading art in the postal system with such a lovely creative like yourself :D Happy you enjoyed my zine, and even happier to see that it made you dust some of your old ones off. They are beautiful & colorful - which reminds me, my next zine is going to be mostly hand-drawn and in COMPLETE FULL BLOWN COLOR! WOOAOO! you will of course get one! Keep up the wonderful blogging!
