What is your favorite part of making zines?

We love that zines give people a platform to share their art in whatever way feels true to them. We have so many friends who are creative and inspire us, and it's a privilege to be able to share our platform with them so that other people can see the amazing and necessary work that they're doing. It's great because there's something for everyone; that visibility helps validate someone's work, and inspires them to keep going.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making zines?

Make the art you wish you had when you were younger, because someone needs it now.

We started making zines because we knew lots of artists who were doing work that should be seen and heard, but had no place to put it. Zines helped us become our own creative platform, and now we use that platform to elevate the art of others. So make the zines you wish you had to look up to when you were younger, because you're the only one who can make it.
