zine, wip

zine migration wip


The past couple of weeks I have been working on my first zine, "Migration". I've become addicted to reading zines as well. They are self-published, usually photocopied, original or appropriated material. The ones I've purchased have been the author's original material.

What have you been reading lately?

update

I finished the migration zine, issue 1, and now have it in my galleryjuana shop on etsy. The link is in my sidebar to the right.

The asterisk throughout the zine refers to my resources. I meant to put these links in the zine but thought a clickable link would be better, so here they are:

that sounds like an interesting study and enjoyment, collecting exploring and making a zine!

I love zines too. I don't think I could do that...seems like really smart deep thinkers are good at those? I can be deep but not sure the depth is all that smart. haha! I've been reading magazines, see not so deep. BUT I love the drawings you've done so far in your zine and the subject matter look really interesting. Love those little feet!

Love zines! Used to have one back in the day with comics and band interviews--looking forward to seeing yours. I sometimes think it would be nice to go back to doing DIY print. It's a lot of fun, but also a hell of a lot of work. Makes maintaining a blog look like amateur stuff in comparison.

looks like fun. not familiar yet with zines.
reading real books I hold in my hand made from paper bound and printed by machines. sort of old fashion I know, but then so am I.

can't wait to see your zine. i have seen a few that are just incredible. i haven't ventured down that path yet. good luck with it!

VERY exciting the zine you're putting together, Juana! I love zines too. My newsletter is sort of my zine for now, but I have grander plans for it one day. ;o) Keep us posted on your progress. At the moment I'm reading books on marketing for creative people. Happy Days ((HUGS))

Back again to thank you for the kind comment at my place. So glad you enjoyed the recipe for the wholewheat Irish soda bread recently shared a couple weeks ago for Lammas. Irish soda breads are my bread-baking of choice since they require no yeast, no kneading--just make and bake! ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project. Watching the birds that come to the bird feeders has been my daily dose of joy. fledgling House Finch  Chestnut- backed Chickadee Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home.

Fake Journal, raincoat, letters to antigone

fake journal 2012 I love blog hopping which is how I found Roz's IFJM blog.  For the month of April, participants keep a fake journal that is outside of their regular visual journal . My mind started leaping with ideas. In the next few weeks, you'll see posts titled "Fake Journal" on my blog. I dug up this old journal that I had refused to throw away 'cuz I knew some day it would have a purpose. For the cover, I collaged one of my failed paintings and wrote a short message. I've been carting it around with me since 2008, from Japan to Mexico to California and now Washington. fake journal page one Journal : 8.25 x 5.5 notebook with kraft paper pages and blue ballpoint pen Letters to Antigone Cover : 4 x 6 140# watercolor paper, line drawing with black micron pen, monoprint tissue paper collaged onto drawing with pieces ripped off.

summer bicycle camping

View this post on Instagram Took the weekend off and did some bicycle-camping. . . #bicycle #camping #whidbeyisland #bicycletravel #bicycletrip #bicycletouring A post shared by GalleryJuana (@galleryjuana) on Aug 18, 2019 at 6:18pm PDT Above is the view from our camping trip in August.  Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle pretty badly on a morning hike, so most of this trip was spent in the tent.  Fortunately, the view above our tent was wonderful and I enjoyed just literally doing nothing.  Isn't that the meaning of taking a vacation?  The ankle was workable just in time for the bicycle ride home.  Yay:) View this post on Instagram This is from a June Nicole-camping trip at Fort Ebey State park. It’s a beautiful place to go hiking 🥾 in the woods. . . #hiking #whidbeyisland #fortebeystatepark #nature #naturewalk #hikewashington A post shared by GalleryJ
