Jami started making zines in middle school after seeing the "Zine of the Month" feature in Sassy magazine. They primarily create perzines focusing on the concepts of home, family, belonging, grief, and history. They also write about queerness, gender, and illness. Their zines tend to be cut and paste, high contrast black and white, and text heavy. They love doing split zines where one side is made by another zinester and one side by them. Their current zine is Rush Job and is about working in a library during Covid and fractious political times.
My name is Paige (she/her) and I make politically charged zines. My love for zines came from the punk 7 inches I collected as a child. I started to collect zines from the riot grrrl movement and other punk zines I could get my hands on. This started my love for creating art that could be published without censorship. From there, my activism became the forefront of my artistic direction. My experiences with organizations such as Planned Parenthood AZ, #Fight4HER, and Drag Story Hour AZ are reflected in my work. I make collages from pictures I take at protests and collab with organizations to further support their efforts. I also have had the honor to interview artists for my zines such as Kirsten Patches, the lead singer of Naked Aggression!! My zines all focus to center marginalized voices and work to make change through artistic direct action.
My distro consists of politically charged zines. I make submission based zines that are a collection of artists work, usually with feminist themes. I also make zines in response to laws to spread useful information. Such as, how to get an abortion, or how to get birth control without a prescription etc.

There’s not enough dragons in the world, and a lot of them look the same, so I asked artists to draw their interpretation of whatever kind of dragon they want!
I am currently working on a Grateful Dead x Americana inspired zine. It displays my own art that ties GD and what I believe represents the artistic values of traditional concepts.
My zines are infused by a feminist sensibility and focus on the politics of everyday life, including the aftermath of cancer treatment, living in the desert, social and environmental justice. They are a mix of simple, cartoon-style line drawings, collage, and narrative.
I am Katie, artistically known as 'Deathsick.' I am a pen and digital artist new to making zines. I love the analog process of zine making and the opportunity that zines provide for your voice to be heard. There is a community and power in zines that make them truly unique.

Originally from La Mirada, California, I've spent time living in Hawaii, Nicaragua and now Arizona where I've been for the last three years. I've fallen in love with gorgeous desertscapes and have been trying to capture their essence on film. These zines are shot on black & white 35mm film, and they take us on a visual adventure through portions of the Sonoran Desert with the ingenious Saguaro Saint. Several quotes and a couple of original poems are sprinkled throughout. Enjoy!
My zines are mostly comics and illustration, with a focus on the everyday/ autobiographical things and comics poetry.

Hello! I'm an independent multimedia artist who has been making zines since 2019. Most of my zines illustrate my experience as a queer individual through comics, characters, and silly doodles.
My zines tend to deal with concepts like mental health and creativity. They include illustrations and writing. Most are black and white hand-drawn/written mini-zines, but there are a few that are different. My zines manifest themselves in my mind as I'm working through a change in my life and often they help me summarize what I have learned in a way I can pass on to others.
