When did you start making zines ... and why?

For Trace zine making seemed like a natural transition from working so heavily in sketchbooks. Zines became mini versions.

How do you create your zine content?

We both pull directly from our sketchbooks, Trace Literally and Megan figuratively.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

Our favorite part is putting that last staple in and seeing a finished product.
