I make zines as a form of self help. I do one of two things, I deal with issues that i'm feeling emotionally, creating stories that attempt to resolve them, or I create characters and stories to empower me that revolve around social issues.
I also use my art as a tool of resistance. Trying to create radical working class literature that is unfiltered by the mainstream media.
To anyone wanting to start creating zines, please do. Zine creating is a fun process that is also part of healing and growing. On top of that the zine community is one that is positive and caring. So zine creating is also about building community and understanding which is never a bad thing.
