A found drawing of Mr. Kitty & a box
3 things I spilled this week
Well, really it was last week that I had 3 spills…
This is my most personal comic yet. It was this time last year when we lost Mr. Kitty to lymphoma & kidney disease. October 17, I think. I don’t even care if half of this is drawn one way and half the other — we really miss him and it was super hard to draw about it but also very meaningful to try.
i made a zine
yep, i did.
the last time i did something of the sort i was 15 and i made it with a kid named MK who was somebody i met from the aol punk message boards and my screenname was orangesid and i am pretty sure i wrote about the propagandhi riot at the VFW (that i didn’t “get” to go to).
so then fast-forward many years and i am a designer by profession and let me tell you how
challenging liberating it was not to get sucked into doing this thing on the computer. cos at one point i was trying to pick out what font i was going to use and a little voice at the back of my head told me “no, no, no you are missing the point entirely.” and so i picked up some tape and a marker and 3 months later once i was done procrastinating less busy with work i finally had 26 pages to scan on my copymachineprinterthing. and oh did you remember that when you make real physical printed things the pages need to be in multiples of four? ha ha, yeah, that’s embarassing. so i added two more pages.
so, here it is. issue one of my zine called ‘animal/people’. the theme is love & loss and in it i process a bit about losing mr. kitty and other things. there are some great contributions by colleen, jenna, and heather. and i am really proud of it.
if you would like a copy, then please harken back to the way zines worked last time i did them and
send an SASE and $1 to… wait, i am not going to post my address on the internet. i wonder how much P.O. boxes cost?
so, just email me at lindsdotmooreatmedotcom (you know the drill with the dots and stuff) and i will send you some snailzinemail. and if you would have sent me a dollar in the mail maybe you could donate it to the boulder humane society instead. thank you lovelies.
