My First Zine: Toilet Paper

My first Zine!

I took a class from Skillshare (two months free from Doodlewash, I figured why not)
and was surprised at the fun of listening to Kate Bingaman-Burt’s enthusiastic class
Making Your First Zine: From Idea to Illustration“.
It was much more than I thought it would be and I recommend!

It saved me a lot of figuring-it-out time…

My biggest takeaway from this class was not to make this first zine precious,
but to take an idea and run with it.  I had no clue what to create — the zines I previously
considered would take much more time than an hour or two.  

Then I sat on the toilet.  Without reading material.   The rest is herstory.

Frightening to share this
first zine with you because it is
raw writing of 
stream of consciousness
thoughts recorded into a zine.
My. Crazy. Silly. Musings.

I laid out the pages on the letter
(8 1.2 x 11 inch) paper.
Cut it as instructed, and folded it!

    I’m not laughing at you — but I definitely AM laughing! Even if I’m a little bit worried that you’ll turn me into Rain Man with all the counting and folding your post will inspire. Wonderful first zine, Katie!


  3. I think this is simply brilliant! I love that it is humorous while making a very strong and serious point.


  4. Hahaha. Kate, thanks for the link! I’ve wanted to do a zine for ages and I’m GOING to find time for this darn class if it kills me! Hugs!
