ZineWriMo 2022 part 1 – zine ideas, art grimoires, and where I find inspiration

In this blogpost, I’m sharing some creative projects that I worked on this week. For example there’s the ZineWriMo challenge (Zine Writing Month) in November. Even though I’m not following all the ZineWriMo prompts by Sea Green Zines, you should take a look at them because they are fun! Apart from zines, I’m going to show you what I made so far for the magickal grimoire / artjournal course by Molly Roberts

Crafty summer projects

Besides making zines and music, I also enjoy doing some crafts once in a while…

This summer I’ve been making some new buttons with my button machine (see previous blogpost) as well as sewing a lot of patches on clothes and bags. This was inspired partly by a present by my friend and writer Evelien Victor and by a big online order of patches that arrived from zine pal and queer artist Yori. I also participated in a virtual workshop by another zine pal and artist Seleena Laverne Daye (organised by Andro & Eve) where she taught us participants how to make self-portraits out of felt (Seleena also gave a workshop about the zines in July). Mine aren’t finished yet though… In the photo above you can see that I’ve been sewing a new face mask too. With the ongoing pandemic and some of my masks getting a bit worn-out, it seemed like a good idea to make a fresh one. Finally, I’ve started doing some more embroideries but those are still a surprise! You will find out more about them soon on this blog.
