Reply to IndieWeb Carnival June: DIY β€” Something from (Almost) Nothing
+ Submission to Aromantics Create Pride: An AUREA Event in partnership with Dancing Queerly

I've long wanted to make a zine. This month's IndieWeb Carnival theme of DIY and the Aromantics Create Pride event was probably the only thing that could force me to finally do all that. In preparation I researched zines online. I didn't want to make one of those zines that are professionally illustrated and set in InDesign or something — I wanted it to be raw and real, and to look like a classic zine one or a few people made with what was at hand. A real "something from nothing" thing, as the prompt suggested.

In my research I stumbled upon an archive of sci-fi fanzines beginning in 1930! My zine was heavily inspired by this and I tried to emulate the feeling of it by typing it all on a typewriter (a '30s typewriter, too) and illustrating in black ink. It's not the best version it could be, full of typos and all that jazz, but that simply supports my "artistic intention", I guess.
