"Zine pronounced Zeen short for magazine. A lot of people pronounce it wrong." – Kanye West
Over the last 10 years I have made a nice handful of zines for a range of purposes. For me, these self-published booklets were a safe place to explore making something that doesn't really need to exist and maybe shouldn't.
I've also enjoyed participating in zine fairs such as Brooklyn Zine Fest, Pete's Mini Zine Fest, and others. More recently, I've hosted zine making workshops for creatives in both conference and company event spaces. It's a great way to tap into who we are to make exactly what we want and then easily produce multiples to distribute. I love it. Wow.
Here are some zines I've made, including my HOME-BREW series.
