Do you like zines? I think they’re great!
If you don’t know what a zine is, it’s basically a little self-published magazine. It’s normally pretty small, doesn’t have a huge number of pages and isn’t produced in mass or with any great high-tech printing methods. Lots of them are just photocopied and hand coloured (if coloured at all).
What I love about zines is that it’s a really affordable way of collecting artwork of illustrators and artists that you love. I have a huge collection of postcards, zines and other bits and bobs by inspirational people. One day, when I have a studio I aim to cover a wall with it all.
I recently got some wonderful little zines from Heidi M. She creates wonderful illustrations and you should definitely check out her work. I love how she decorated the envelope with three little cats like mine, it was a lovely thing to get in the post.

This zine looks amazing, I think I might have to order it.

There are lots more awesome zines on Etsy, here’s a link to a treasury I made with some that I found.
I’ve also created my own zine with my cat drawings :)
