What inspired you to do so? It was launched in October I was inspired by the DIY ethic. Why publish a zine? It allows me to work hard and gives me something I can take pride in, as far as workmanship and constructive effort. It has put me in contact with people around the world who share similar interests and ideas. I publish because I was tired of waiting for other people to publish things for me, and because of a general disgust at the way things work in the "real" world. They make me laugh.
The pictures came from many different sources. Do you do any other zines? A nightmarish journey to the center of a turd. Any general tips for aspiring zinesters? Rethink things! The model you follow in your head is more often than not based on irrelevant patterns set by large, professional publishers with millions of dollars and no conscience. You are obligated to no one when you start a zine. Think about each step yourself, from the physical size, to the focus, to the printing and distribution.
Think about priorities: which is more important to you, money or satisfaction? Are you doing it for fun? Then make choices accordingly. Holding the issues in my hand and feeling like I have actually accomplished something that I set out to accomplish. I also love fine-tuning things in the late stages, and working all night alone at the light table with the music playing behind me. Where are my sided dice?
