This fall I was asked to illustrate the second edition to a zine called OURS (created by Equity Lab). It highlights different stories, recipes and poems from queer, trans and POC. The theme for the zine is centered around nourishment.
*What is a zine you ask?*
It is a noncommercial often homemade or online publication usually devoted to specialized and often unconventional subject matter.
Since such a big chunk of the content were Asian foods and fruits I had never heard of, there was much googling to do (pomelos, durians,etc). I painted the cover in watercolor as you can see in all it’s glory above. Anything done in watercolor was my doing, from backgrounds to illustrations.
You can buy your copy here $5 for the digital, and $10 for the physical.
