Working on a Zine

Reading time ~1 minute

Publishing is a daunting task. Which is why we have never really felt up to the feat. We have things we want to say of course. It's just that writing a book or even an article on one of the many subjects we are passionate about feels like a monumental task in light of our oppressive perfectionism.

So it's nice to have artistic outlets that one doesn't feel the need to create perfection in. That's not to say there is no perfection in the art of zine publishing.. I believe quite the opposite.. It's just that we personally have set our goals for this particular medium rather low.. Create something pretty and meaningful to me while making at most 3-4 copies.

Making a zine is to us similar in many respects to scrapbooking. In that it is temporally meaningful given what we are working on. It's something that takes few spoons, and can be done while having tea and listening to music. The process is important because it is relaxing and also because it helps develop muscle memory for other types of artistic endeavors.

As with other artforms I like to work on the outline or layout of something before getting into details..

It's quite relaxing.
