There’ll be over 15 different stalls and publications to check out next Sunday as a part of our Zine Fair. Hosted in the beautiful Brown’s Mart Courtyard we will also host a ‘Maker Space’ where you can cut up and create your own zine magic. Printing provided by donation.
Intentionally harsh and jagged visuals nurse soft and borderless meta commentary undertaken subliminally. smoothie of graffiti, nihilism, internal and external observation, and perspective simulation theory. these creations are made to engage independent and conscious thought/behaviour/reflections/undertakings from readers, glancers, and thinkers alike.

Do I Seduce You? Presented by Tarzan JungleQueen
‘Do I seduce you?’ is a memoir piece that explores feminism, gender, and Tarzan’s experience as a queer-bodied human finding a voice. Sometimes there are no words or blurbs that can sum up the explosion of confusion that comes from within; the juices that need to leak out. This zine ‘Do I seduce you?’ becomes the language to an unexplainable body.
Enter Sandman // Reckless Kelly presented by Kelly Walsh
Enter Sandman is a vibrant take on the myths and realities of a space we spend a third of our lives in. A sleep scientist turned designer / illustrator, Kelly gets her kicks from the distillation of complex concepts into simple, digestable graphic forms that surprise and delight.

Horndog cartoons – Horn is the last of his species as his family all were hunted down due to their horns reputed aphrodisiac qualities … the dog is sort of his master… (todd)
I love drawing and engaging with people. So my zine would focus on a how to prepare for a collaborative creative drawing exercise. It can be used as an ice breaker, within the classroom and to gain information for a specific question. Many people express themselves in lots of different ways and the zine focuses on how simple drawings can convey sometimes than the written word.
Hell & Wholesome presented by Simone Porrovechio
Bizarre, odd, surreal – anything that my mind vomits up – that’s what you get, Sailor!
Hot Rocks presented by Tom Dews
I am very new to making zines. My zines try to convey the stunning and sexy shapes, colours and textures of the NT’s landscapes, all in a neat fold-able form. My mum said she’d never heard of zines but she thought it was cool!

Scribblings presented by Jeremy Garnett
A collections of the makings; a beginning of the tale. A thinker’s thoughts without remorse, unfinished yet fettered. Each story, each poem, begins with a spark: an instigating phrase. Yet most lightning seeds linger, written, but forgotten. Scrbblings collects such unfinished phrases, inter-dispersed with thunder realised. BYO context and storm.
