Whatcha Mean, What’s a Zine?

Earlier this year, we stumbled across an artist web site called, Fudge Factory Comics, which is done by Travis Millard out of Los Angeles. The thing that captured our attention was his section on zines. Since finding this, we have had it in the back of our heads that this would be a fun casual project for us to do every now and then. This past quarter at school we had a class that involved hand stitching and binding books. For one of the projects we did our first test run and created a zine. The covers were screen printed and we had some pages of random thoughts and expressions done with a typewriter. We have talked with others that also have interest in this area, and are looking to do some collaboration sometime soon. Below are some shots from the ones we did in class.

    Fun stuff for sure. Thanks for sharing the pics, I’m always interested in seeing minis and zines. I’m definitely looking forward to Art Walk next week and the grand opening of the zine collection. Great link to the Fudge Factory site also!
