Listed a couple of new/old gift sets in my etsy shop. Here's one for Halloween. It comes with a copy of my horror movie zine, a pumpkin mug, and some other art and collectibles. :) #etsy #halloween #horrorzines #zines #art
TL;DR💋We are building an inclusive, sex-positive, femme art community online.
Lips: Expressions of Female* Sexuality started as an assignment for an Introduction to Women’s Studies Class. Lips asked women in the community to send stories, poetry, and artwork expressing their sexuality for the publication.
The zine served as an outlet where women could express themselves honestly and openly. Its existence empowered those who contributed and even those who didn't. It created and claimed a space where female* voices were valid, valued, and, perhaps most importantly, were heard.
Now the zine is digitizing into a new kind of social media platform to serve as an alternative to media publications and platforms that harm individual's self esteem and mental health, as well as marginalize honest, intelligent discourses of sexuality and the female* experience.
When we encourage sexual expression, we begin to paint a more complete picture of sex and love.
We hope readers will learn from others, and use experiences shared by contributors to work towards achieving acceptance of self and others as well as healthy relationships based on mutual understanding and pleasure.
We believe that every female* deserves access to diverse and honest stories about female sexuality. We believe that every female* deserves access to a space where her voice is allowed, acknowledged and valued. We're done with "taboo" and "inappropriate" and "improper." We're ready for real.
Our mission is to provide a space in digital and print for women* to share their experiences openly and honestly, as well as a space for women to enjoy and support empowering and authentic content.
Through our platform and University Chapters, we also aim to encourage women and lgbtq+ individuals to get involved in, and build confidence from, entrepreneurship and technology..
***What's with the asterisks? We recognize the gender binary as a social construct and welcome those all along the spectrum to join our community. Inclusion and acceptance are among our core values because diverse voices enrich our understanding and elevate the conversation, empowering and inspiring even more people. You go, girls*!

🎠 Alright, I think it’s finally time for the big scary news to be made public....If things keep going the way that they’re going, my first self published book “Here and a Half: Book 0” will be available by the end of November. It’s a 5x5, 24 page book with prose and illustration. I’ve been waiting a very long time to start publishing this series of books. It’s been building up for ages. It’s a sort of non-traditional, fragmented memoir chock-full of thoughts, feelings, and memories from over the span of life itself. And of course, illustrations that all come deep from the heart. Reading these books is going to be about as close as you could possibly get to taking a trip to the inside of my mind. I’ll be posting updates as I go, so be on the lookout for new art under #hereandahalf
. If anyone is interested in owning a copy, let me know as soon as you can, as this first print run is going to be very small. Once I have a sense of how many books I’ll be producing, I’ll be able to give a more definite cost, but I imagine it will only be around $5-6. It’s a little terrifying to put out something that’s been coming together for so long, but I hope it’s worth it! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #art #drawing #illustration #book #publishing #selfpublishing #zine #zines #wip #announcement #blue #personal #instaart #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #fragtag_everyone #fragtag_ludwig

Excited for new blog posts coming soon. (Link in bio) I know I don’t share my poetry as much any more but my zine “Run Wild” will be available on my blog soon as a PDF until I get my own printer🍂 picture of my favorite gunne sax dress #vintage #writerslife
When we were going through layout, this image by Jess White (entitled Bleach) really stuck out to me. I love matching visuals to text and automatically set it aside to be paired with a knock out poem by Hannah Taggart that examines the cycle of life and death particularly within a cancer context. The two pieces back to back is easily one of my favorite spreads in the upcoming Issue. // 3 days left to go in our Kickstarter! Consider donating if you like what you see here 😇
The Zine Library will be at Plymouth Athenaeum from 11-5pm for the Plymouth Art Weekender! There will be drop in zinemaking workshops all throughout the day, so come along and have a go!
