I was just gonna do a little zine for #9 to get the next one out there after Trust the Knife…
But I started and this one is going to be just as horrible to write. Damn it.
Well if I’m going to do this shit, I guess I should do it.
“ownership” of black women’s bodies
Alcohol and drugs
Race Riot Tour
Think About The Bubbles #8 “Trust the Knife: A Frac/tion of a Story of Post-Traumatic Growth”. That’s the long title. So nervous! I tried to read it with fresh eyes, and… I dunno.
My zine is coming along.
Fundraising time! If you click here and donate a minimum of ONLY $FOUR dollars you’ll get:
—the first issue of Think About the Bubbles (about the rollercoaster of mental health, and trying to stabilize oneself)
—a pocketzine Joyce Heart’s Potato Chips (a tasty coping skill! body positivity!)
—a poster for the Fargo Moorhead Zine Fest. (It was printed 8.5 x11 rather than 8.5x17 so the elephants are a little squished!)
25% of funds go to the POC Zine Project to help fund the Race Riot tour, and the rest goes to the FMZF. FMZF would not exist with out POCZP, and has received so much support and advice from POCZP, so this is a great way to give back!
Think About the Bubbles #7 “Thoughtsicles and Mind Grapes” is done. It’s about the place where mental illness, sexism, and racism meet (spoiler alert: very close to me!) loosely inspired by 30 Rock.
Think About the Bubbles #6 “Helpers”
I’ve got two kickass drawings in there… plus some cool lettering… plus some awesome thoughts about things that help.
Think About the Bubbles #5 Fears/Loves was just reviewed by One Minute Zine Reviews!!!
I was having such a horrible, horrible day, and then I saw the review! It made me feel so much better!
Anyway, the picture that was used was taken before the page was done, so I posted this picture of the final product. So if were directed here from OMZR, welcome! And thanks for looking!

OK, so I haven’t written an ‘it’s done’ gushy gushy post about it yet. Which is odd, because:
When I finished it, I felt a major sense of accomplishment, like, WOW I DID IT! And then immediately after I felt a sense of loss. Here was this thing I’d been pouring my heart and soul into for days, and now it’s just done. And it’s done. No edits needed or wanted, it’s fucking done.
I felt like that after I did my first zine. It’s a nice feeling, but also a sad feeling. But… I guess it makes me feel alive and human.
Anyways. It’s beautiful. Eight pages of color. I’m very proud of the art I did in it.
It’s about my fears, and my loves, and the path between the two. In eight pages!

Done in 24 hours as part of a challenge. If you like cats you’ll love it. I was a little… Something… to realize I had SO MANY pictures of Alvin.

My pocket zine, “You are Special” in which I explain everyone being special doesn’t diminish any one person’s special-ness.
