News & events (March-May 2019)

Some news and updates from my zine life: 🙂

NEWS

In the past few months I made a bunch of new zines:

  • Guitarrr #2: mini-zine for learning to play guitar and bass
  • Same Heartbeats #14: DIY feminist zine about manspreading, going to zine events (in the UK and Belgium), Lavender Witch, Yngwie Malmsteen, nostalgia, etc + interview with 2 creative DIY queer-feminist activist friends
  • YngWHO?: fanzine/perzine about the 80s, fandom, fame, gender, and Yngwie Malmsteen

Recently I was asked to contribute a illustration to the book The Feminist Revolution by D-M Withers and Bonnie J. Morris. It arrived in my mailbox not so long ago. Here you can see the cover and my illustration:

 

More illustration news soon!
