Happy Holiday Weekend

Matt and I are about to head up to an Easter dinner with his family in Milwaukee, but before we depart I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday weekend and share a couple quick inspirational links.

I took a quick picture of some forsythia walking home from work this week and using this cool tool I doctored it up a bit.

Check out this little series of posts about zines from last fall, on mint design blog.  I remember when I first read about zines in sassy magazine back in probably 91. I was taking graphic arts as a freshman in high school and it got me even more excited about design and here I am a graphic designer for around 12 years. It was always a dream of that little freshman to design her own zine of her own. Then I remember buying my own first zines from Crackers and Honey. Before that I always had imagined zines as article themed, photography, and design oriented, but Karissa’s were artsy an craftsy, as well as design based.

I want to make a zine. Just throw it onto my pile of project addiction.

oops, gotta go! Have a good weekend.


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).

One thought on “Happy Holiday Weekend

  1. oh yeah! I have also wanted to make a zine since I read about it in sassy like 15+ years ago. it’s totally one of those things that’s always on my “to do. . . . someday” list.
