Thank you so much for all of the suggestions you’ve been sending to firstname.lastname@example.org for my zine, I promise I am reading and responding. Just to further kind of explain my mission with it, it isn’t necessarily completely about summer in a cutesy sense (even though the imagery evidently is). I guess I want to use poetry and illustrations to work through my relationship with the seasons and my own seasonal affected depression. I want to convey some of the joy that I feel as it turns to summer and the complex relationship I have with my environment. I’ve been working to get my wonderful, talented friends involved from all over the world – especially my ‘summer friends’ in California.
That might clear it up or make it all the more murky, but either way here are some cute illustrations I mocked up. Feel free to keep sending words and pictures to me.
