OURS Zine Launch
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.
These photos are from the zine’s launch this past Friday (12/30)! First photo is of me, our fierce leader Lynda (creator of Equity Lab), and diligent graphic designer Tiff.
This photo is of some of the writers and us enjoying a job well done! Yanyi and Lyna can be spotted in the second and third row :)
