An A6 colour zine that folds out into an A3 poster, a collaborative project by Kraggy and iamanoctopus. A bright mash-up of popular culture references, heavy on typography and featuring some immense illustration work.

Punch A Priest


Traditional tattoos are a great love of mine, I find them to have a somewhat cartoonish nature unique to their design that makes them captivating. Punch A Priest borrows from the traditional tattoo style and re-interprets it with re-imagined, embellished designs.

An illustrated deconstruction of a watch; quite a unique and wonderful zine. Refusing to wear any time piece at all and knowing very little about the mechanics but being quite curious about the subject, I found this zine, which details the various parts of a watch, incredibly fascinating. Interestingly enough the alignment of the illustrations upon the pages makes you feel as if they had been taken out of the watch and placed right in front of you.

10 Reasons Not To Bother Coming To Earth


Turning a blind eye to the glaring grammatical error on the front cover (I am an unapologetic grammar enthusiast) this zine make me laugh and nod in agreement; Loathe people who dress their pets in clothes? Check! Appalled at "popular music"? Check! Despise the downfall of common decency? Check! An excellent choice of 10 reasons not to bother coming to earth (that is, if you're an alien).

A zine full of dog profiles; minimal with a sketchbook feel. Not much else to say except this is one awesome zine.









This Year I Have


There are no details at all for this zine, which is a terrible shame since I like it a whole heap. Lists are brilliant; I make them for almost everything and enjoy reading other peoples. This zine lists 100 things 'anonymous' has achieved so far this year combining the mundane with the marvellous.

  1. Love these zines, This Year I Have really appealed to me at the event, it's such a simple but lovely idea. Also the 10 reasons not to come to earth is really funny with such nice illustrations. :)

  2. I am considering making my own zine from my lists since I obsessively make them (and some of them are quite ridiculous)
