Making a whale zine with Les Voizines

I did a thing! For the first time since lockdown, I participated in an “organised event”. It was outdoors and felt really safe (limited amount of people, space to spread out, alco-gel available, each our own markers/brushes…) and I was happy to be able to do this. Getting creative outside in the sun, with other creative people around, including a friend I hadn’t seen since February last year – it was exactly what I needed. Thank you to the Les Voizines team, De Koer, and the people behind the whale boat for organising it!

The idea was that everyone made giant black and white drawings/pages for the “walvis zine” which will be put together printed later on. We also drew memories of Ghent and its rivers on the map below.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy:

News – spring zine events

Springtime brings lots of feminist/DIY/zine events again, hurray!

  • 12493578_788410474621494_6464792859441821252_oEvery 2 years, there’s a Ladyfest in Brussels and in 2016 the festival returns! On March 18-20th, you can enjoy feminist music, workshops, films, art, food and zines in BRASS in Brussels. Take a look at the programme. I’ll exhibit some drawings, play some tunes in between the bands and bring my zines! Do bring yours too!
  • I’m so sad I’m gonna miss the Alternative Bookfair in Ghent this year! It’s on Saturday March 26th and I’ll be traveling… (though that is of course fun too 🙂 ). But FEL will still do a stand with their publications, stickers and buttons and you can find some of my zines there too among others. It’s the perfect place for all your anarchist/activist/DIY/self-published book and zine needs!
  • Luckily I’m back from my travels for the second edition of Zine Happening, organised by Les VoiZines on April 9-10th. Ghent’s own zine fest, can’t miss that!
  • And in May, some more traveling: the Putney Public Library in south-west London hosts a Zine Afternoon on May 7th. I was invited to speak, together with other zine makers and I’m very excited about it!


Report of Zine Happening + Alternatieve Boekenbeurs


IMG_2443webOn April 11th and 12th, I shared a table with other 24 hour zine makers  and with the feminist collective FEL at Zine Happening in Ghent. This zine fest was organised by Les VoiZines, a project started by two neighbour girls who make zines, comics and illustrations themselves. It was the second zine fest ever, as far as I know. The first one was organised by FEL and ECHO in 2011.
