Grass & Stars my first zine

I’m so excited. I finished my first zine for the swap I’ve mentioned before. It came out better than I could have ever imagined.

The idea of the title came to and suited me perfectly, I go into a bit in the zine. It’s printed on gloss text, is only 1.875″ x 1.25″, and includes a 5 panel comic, a second in my “how to…” series.

It’s funny that taking on such a small sized zine, I thought it would be very quick and easy. Wrong. I had so many ideas that it was almost impossible to compress it down to a book small enough to fit into a matchbox. Still, it turned out great. I hope that this is just the first issue of many more to come. I am so excited about it, I made a handful more to offer in my shop. Please check out the listing for it here.

  2. This is awesome. I love how tiny it is. When I was younger, I made a spy kit that fit into a matchbox. It was the coolest thing EVER.
