GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Team Punchbag
Describe your most recent zine.
This year we made four whole zines! The first is Food Coloring, a coloring & activity book about our favorite late night snacks – which includes a crepe with lychee ice-cream + nutella + custard from a favorite neighborhood spot.
The other three were short stories and illustrations:
1. Garden of Delusions is an essay on self-realization and empowerment from our own barriers.
2. Short Message Syndrome is a modern love story that’s not a rom-com.
3.a. Alley is about a young thief that lingers too long when he probably should have left.
3.b. Dead Mouse Dioramas witnesses a street altercation, where one could intervene or let it play out.
We continued our process of collaborating with writers by providing prompts and illustrations for each short story.
Of all the things you’ve ever made, zine-related or otherwise, what’s your one favorite?
We made a poop sticker that we’re pretty damn proud of. It makes us laugh, lots. And it seems to make other people giggle too.
