Friends have told me before that living with your boyfriend can be difficult. Still, I wanted to know, I wanted to live it (first time for me). My boyfriend moved in September 2018. It was tough. I got angry. These are diary snippets from those first months. Sometimes I’m happy, sometimes I’m not.
My favorite zine so far. Printed and bound at home. 62 pages. A few pages have some watercolour. Every copy is different. Signed and numbered. Edition of 50.
“All in all very good! Kudos!” According to my toughest critic and dad.
Poetry and imagery. Black gouache painted over laser prints. These images then scanned and printed on Fabriano paper with an imperfect inkjet printer that, once in a while, creates red and magenta images instead of grayscale. No one zine is the same due to the printer’s imperfections. The 56 page zine is coptic bound.
Edition of 20 copies. Signed and numbered.
Le livre brun
A 30 page zine on dung made for my boyfriend’s 40th anniversary. In about 6 months time prior to making this zine, I took notes of Jean-Jean’s conversation/jokes on the subject (very often). The quotes are his but the illustrations are mine.
Bound, printed and assembled at home. The cover pages made of Fabriano paper. End-papers out of tissue paper. The inside pages, gray paper. There is a folded spread as well as another tissue paper page inside. My illustrations are originally ink drawings. Everything printed on my inkjet printer.
The format is 4.25”x4.75”. Limited edition of 25. Signed, stamped and numbered. The zine comes with a limited edition print of the hairy bottom.
just another self-portrait
This is just another self-portrait. As there are many other self-portraits out there.
A mixture of my poetry and collages, the 36 page zine is printed and bound at home. Laser printing on two types of gray paper, as well as vellum paper. Signed, stamped and numbered. Edition of 50.
It was on the shortlist for the 2018 Broken Pencil Zine Award, literary zine category.
My first zine. She Shapes, a 20 page booklet created for an event concerning the female body (Féminizine). All text and illustrations mine.
Recipient, in 2018, of an award at the Gala de l’académie de la vie littéraire (Festival dans ta tête).
