As you may have seen in a previous blogpost about my Wonderful Witch bundles, I’ve released two new zines! Witches’ Brew #3 is a witchy perzine in classic cut & paste style and #4 offers recipes for self-love potions. I’ve worked on these two new zines for several months while occasionally showing sneak peeks so here they are finally! 😀 Read on to find out more…

NEW: Wonderful Witch bundles – zines, postcards, stickers, and more!

It’s July 13th and Full Moon… time to send some art magick out into the world! 😀

In the past few months I’ve been busy creating lots of different witch-themed things: zines, postcards, buttons, stickers, bookmarks… I hope you will enjoy them as much as I’ve enjoyed making them.

UPDATE: these bundles are no longer available but all items are still for sale in my new webshop or by emailing me.

All the zines I’ve published in 2021

The end of 2021 is nearby so I’m slowly writing my yearly overview blog posts. Here is the first one:

All the zines I’ve published in 2021:

Lost Luna Zine #1 – an introductionary mini-zine for my solo music project Lost Luna that talks about taking back space and things to do as a musician in lockdown (because when you’re a creative person / doing creative work, surely you can find creative solutions for situations like this).

  • Lost Luna Zine #2 – mini-zine with the lyrics and being-the-song stories of Lost Luna’s debut EP “Shadow Play”.
  • Lost Luna Zine #3 – mini-zine with recommended bands and artists who’ve been inspiring me when home-recording my music.
  • Same Heartbeats #18 – the newest issue of my feminist perzine which was made during a virtual 24-hour zine event organised by Swansea Zine Fest.
  • Confined #3 – pandemic diary comic zine that includes interviews with creative friends who run God Save the Queer and MandApunk
  • Confined #4 – another issue of my pandemic diary comic zine

Order them by emailing me or via my webshop.

Some zines I’ve finished writing and designing that will be published in early 2022:

  • Witches’ Brew #2: amulets and pendants
  • Bunny Magick: Chainsaw Bunny’s guide to witchcraft
  • Do it yourself care: autumn blues
  • Queer Quest #1: queer quest for community – choose your own adventure
  • Do it yourself care: joyful girl – where I find joy
  • Echotopia #2: 20 years of Echo Zines

+ more to come 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!

Quaranzine bundles

If you want to read my entire lockdown comic zine series, I recommend you don’t just get Confined #1-4 but Scissors & Chainsaws #2 as well which fills the gap between Confined #2 and #3.

You can also buy all the zines I made/published between March 2020 and September 2021 as a special “quaranzine bundle” that’s available in my webshop.

All Confined zine and merch orders on Bandcamp receive a digital download of Lost Luna’s “Shadow Play” EP.

Find the zines and the merch (see photos below) in my Bandcamp webshop. More info about the merch and special test prints in this blogpost.
