The zine I’ve been working on since the month of June 2018. Poetry and collages. A different type of collage though: black gouache painted on laser prints (of hands). Then scanned and printed on Fabriano paper with an imperfect inkjet printer that somehow gives me red/magenta colours (alerting me when there are no more CMY inks in the printer). No one zine will be the same due to the printer’s imperfections.
Once printed, it will be coptic bound. Since they are hand made and costly (printer-wise), I will probably only make ten copies.
What did you snatch With those blunt hands? The Brute. You sooth, But never could carry In those sweaty palms My heart, my teeth, my lungs
Empty hands, heavy yes I’ll let you sink under the flesh Of my thighs
How do you say Fuck you In sign language? I don’t want to fade Amid the Mustang And the Chevrolet.
The heat, the blur The fire in my throat The smoothie in my soul
Land of eucalyptus tree I never did like Swimming in the sea
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, not my last (zines are passionable). She Shapes, a 20 page document created for an event concerning the female body (Féminizine). All text and illustrations mine.
I won't be home tonight
I won’t be home tonight is a newspaper of some of my blog posts. The days when my nights were late and when music filled my veins. It’s a blog on rock concerts I guess. Maybe more on life.
Printed on broadsheet newspaper (Newspaper Club). An edition of 50. Signed and numbered.
