okay seriously mang what’s the deal with celery and peanut butter. growing up i read at least three stories with characters eating them. i’ve always wondered what they’d taste like and tried them finally this afternoon. it was a total letdown. like, i thought it’d taste gross or whatever but i guess it was underwhelming at best. two strong flavors that ended up tasting like nothing? kinda liked the texture though. maybe if i added honey or sesame seeds it’d taste better.
at the start of 2014 my pal soen and i decided to make the most out of every time mercury is in retrograde by making a project together. the fruit of the first retrograde is a split-zine, hell yeah! it’s called there’s so much greatness behind the hurt curtain / behind the hurt curtain there’s so much greatness (hope ya saw what we did there, haha!) it contains writing that we did on our own and writing we did together from prompts.
in my end, behind the hurt curtain, i write about jealousy, healing, monsters, rivers, the strong undercurrent of love and loss.
and according to soen:
there’s so much greatness is about the magic in uncovering my own chinese history and connecting to the magic all around me.
there’s so much greatness behind the hurt curtain / behind the hurt curtain there’s so much greatness is 32 quarter letter-sized pages, black & white. copies are $2 in canada and usa, $3 internationally. shipping is included!
we accept paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org. or $$$ in person if you live anywhere around toronto or vancouver! have questions? please feel free to email me, keet (email@example.com) or soen (firstname.lastname@example.org). woop! ♥
what i’m doing right now: assembling a bunch of sampler zines for my shoppe!
I’m reading a few zines of yours trying to get inspired to write my own but it’s hard :(
omg. but i know this feel tho. writing zines have been extra trying for me lately. it just brings up so many weird questions. i just finished an attempt at one after a looong rusty while. i miss having zines as a regular part of my art projects.
