these are hard times for dreamers

Today is all about one of the projects I've done this year. Earlier this year (like freshman year at college actually), my friend Aimee approached me to contribute to the magazine she founded, pocketto, with her friend Emma. I'm so grateful they put up with my "artistic quirks" and I just recieved my copy in the mail. I'm so so happy to have been part of the first issue and can't wait to see (and hopefully partake in) future issues.

Aimee is such an obscenely talented photographer and I really do hope that if you have the means to purchase the magazine (it's Australian based, here is it's facebook page) please do so because you won't regret it. You can peruse the past online issues too.

I don't think I ever published this zine for people to buy outside this collab with pocketto, and I don't think I will because my zines are usually one-offs and only sent to friends as presents. They don't look right photo-copied in black and white, the best copy is always the original so you can feel the textures. So I'm very happy the quality of the paper and etc is so good in the edition that is being sent out with pocketto. Here's a page just because.

Have a good day. ♥

This looks like an interesting magazine...I'm going to check out the FB page now. I like your zine page that you shared. I wish more people were into zines...but honestly I think they just weird out the general public. Thanks for sharing.
