Artists

  • Jason Polan is one of my favorite artists. I love his raw and quick drawings made with a simple pen and notebook. His project of trying to Draw Every Person In NY was cut short as he passed away a few years ago. His work still continues to inspire me.

  • I love Chelsea Granger's art. Her oracle deck Dirt Gems is magical and you should check it out. She also writes a lot about death and grief which I found helpful after losing my partner. She spent one year mailing out a monthly paper journal/newsletter to a few subscribers after losing her mom and close friends.

  • Indiana Hoover I love his simple pencil sketches, and the way he renders portraits.

  • Kate Bingaman-Burt Artist, zine maker, and teacher.

  • Shawn Eisenach I just discovered his website and I fell instantly in love with his work, and his barebones website. Love it allll. His zines look amazing...I need to grab one.

Zines

  • iknowbilly is a long-time zinester who I support on Patreon. He's been writing zines forever, in the ol cut and paste style which I love and appreciate. He writes a monthly paper newsletter The Desert Sun, amongst all his other zines including the very famous Behind The Zines series which is written twice a year.

  • Izalixe Straightheart hails from Montreal, and her zines are usually written on a typewriter, in a cut-and-paste style. She chronicles her life and travels often back and forth between Vancouver and Montreal. She's a huge hockey fan, has a penchant for thrift finds, and makes vlogs on Youtube.

  • Small Zine Volcano You can buy a shit load of zines for freeee! You only pay for postage. Buy zines like You by Luke (one of my favs), Friday Night in West Ealing, and Rut Zine by Bianca. These are mostly one-page zines from Australia. I love the idea that one page can become a small publication. Very cool.

  • Sticky Institute

  • Echo A DIY feminist zines + comics.

  • Seagreen Zines Zine adoration station.

  • Liz Mason has been self-publishing for over 20 years. She manages the famous Quimby bookstore in Chicago, and writes really fun zines like Caboose, Awesome Things, and Cul-de-sac. She's an awesome gal and not just because her website says so.

  • Anna Jo Beck Artist and zine maker

  • Wasted Ink Zine Distro

Writers/Blogs

  • I just stumbled upon Winnie Lim's website. Her writing really speaks to me. Her posts about struggling with existence, and building an online home through a personal website have sparked a creative flame. She's inspired me to do the same!

  • C.C Poet and writer. She writes a free one-page zine through the mail, and I look forward to each and every issue.

  • Ru is baaaack! So happy to have one of my favorite bloggers writing again. She mostly writes about tech, in a light, humorous way, without alienating her non-tech readers (ty Ru). I've learned quite a bit from her! Basically, I'm a big fan and would follow her writing anywhere.

  • I love Anhvn's website. She inspires me to cultivate a personal digital home. Also, her site is gorgeous; I love the hidden interactive gems she has on her site too.

  • Verily by Nathan Degruchy . He mostly writes about tech, but it's his personal notes that I really enjoy.

  • Blogroll.org This site is new to me but I've found quite a few interesting blogs. Just everyday life blogs...which are my favorite.

  • Mataroa Collection sooooo many cool blogs to peruse.

  • Evy's Garden

  • Jake’s Boring Life🤍
