What is a zine? A zine is simply a self-published magazine, and lately I have been obsessed with them. Some are Xerox copies of illustratons and writings, others can be full-on glossies with editorial content.
At a book fair last summer I came across a stand of artists zines; beautiful small publications that had been made by hand with screen-printed imagery, hand-drawn type and intricate designs. That's where my obsession began and how I was inspired to create my own.
My dream was to have Fly zines to give away at the Fly Five party, but it just didn't happen. Everything was designed but I couldn't print them and put them together in time for the event. Instead I decided to print a few and give them away right here on Fly.
This experimental 6-page zine (inspired by the phrase "I am Fly," which was a message I used on buttons I gave away at the party) is handmade with hand-drawn illustrations and type, with a mix of fun collages.
