Happy 14th birthday, Chainsaw Bunny!

😮 Today, August 25th, is Chainsaw Bunny‘s birthday aka the anniversary of her creation! Send all birthday cards, carrot cake, and wishes her way! She’s turned 14 but is still such a little baby. 🙂

Some cute photos:

Februwitchery – creative witchy challenge

As I wrote in my dreams & plans for 2022 blogpost, I really like the idea of creative challenges in which you get to do a creative thing every day of a month. Some examples include Inktober (making an ink drawing or sketch every day of October), Stitchtober (embroidering during October), and ZineWriMo (making zines in November). Also, I’ve been wanting to focus on making a bunch of lino stamps for a while now and I’d like to give it a go this month. My plan is to carve a small lino stamp every day in February. At the end I’d like to print them all to show the results on this blog and on social media. Not sure if I’ll manage to do this every day but we’ll see!

Of course, if you’re tempted, you can also participate and do any creative stuff with a witchy theme such as embroidery, mini-zines, drawing, comics… It would be cool to see the results! #februwitchery 😉

By the way, it’s Imbolc today (Midwinter) as well as Lunar New Year where I live (I assume because it’s the first New Moon of the year?). Happy Imbolc!

PS. On the photo bove you can see some lino cuts I made a while ago: “letter soup” (for the zine of the same name), “echo zines” with an envelope, stars, 2 female symbols, and a bird.

New postcard: moon trees

Best wishes for 2022!

A bit later than usual, here is my brandnew postcard for the holidays and new year! It was inspired by stargazing during a visit to a witch town in September (I went back this month). I’m fascinated by the moon and the stars and always love drawing winter tree branches (without leaves) which shows on the card. And of course, a cat couldn’t be missing… You can decide which herb is growing on the bottom right of the drawing.

The postcard is available to buy by emailing me. 1 postcard = 1 euro + postage

You can also buy my entire collection of 14 postcards in my webshop. (Find some photos of the postcards here). I will soon present a bundle that includes this card and a bunch of mini-zines if you prefer to wait for that.

If you’re interested in seeing more of certain kinds of zines, blogposts, and/or other creations, you can let me know here or on social media. I’m currently into creating herbal bags/charm bags and oracle cards, so who knows what the future will hold! 🙂

Self-portrait of 2021

Every year I try to make at least 1 self-portrait so in this blogpost I’m revealing the one I made a few days ago for 2021. Tada!

It’s made with black marker (“alcoholstift”) and white gel pen on blue paper.

A little while ago I was also working on these felt self-portraits (during a vitual workshop by Seleena Laverne Daye). I should really finish them soon…

Friends who’ve drawn or embroidered Chainsaw Bunny

I’m soooo excited and honoured to share with you these artworks that some of my friends have made of my stuffed bunny and comic zine character Chainsaw Bunny. They all did so spontaneously, I didn’t ask for it, so each time it was a wonderful surprise for me. Make sure to check out all the amazing zines, books, stickers, jewelry, music, and games that my friends create!

New: Portfolio website

A few months ago I decided to create a portfolio website for all my illustrations, comics, and zines. You can see it here: https://ninazinaportfolio.wordpress.com/

Of course I’ll still keep blogging about zines and other stuff here but that portfolio website is easy to refer to for a clearer overview of all my work. It was also fun to make. 🙂

Enjoy scrolling through it!
