Alyssa: I like to write short spooky stories, and funny stories about revenge.
Basil: Home Out of Me is a homage to SoCal diy music with some paranormal and fantasy themes mixed in. It’s the first multi-series planned comic I’m making with a writer (Daniel Speer) so I’m very nervous about how to handle it. I’m mostly making zines about cute dogs, video games, and melancholy.

Alyssa: Following through the creative process is always tough for me. Brainstorming a new project is fun, but the actual process of drawing is where the doubt creeps in. If I can survive the feeling of wanting to toss everything out a window the end result is always very rewarding.
Basil: Keeping myself on a schedule is incredibly hard for me. If i try and just jump into something without preparing it always has a tendency of going awry. Other then that probably just making sure i eat.
Alyssa: Watching someone read my zine in person and see them laugh is one of my favorite things. The process of creating can be a lonely one but you can reach out to people in unexpected ways.
Basil: Having something just printed and done and moving on to the next weird thing.
Alyssa: Just have fun, and make the content you want to see in the world.
Basil: No one can stop you. If i wanted to make a Charmy the Bee fashion zine set to Frank Ocean lyrics that I cut out and glued together i could. Zine making is power.
