Coloring Book Zine

2021 Booklet #1

I’ve always loved books and been in awe of book art, so my attraction to zines (once I was introduced) wasn’t surprising. I have a nice collection of my own now and have even tried making a few in the past, but I’ve really been wanting to buckle down and follow through with more of the zine ideas that are just sitting around on lists…

All of the “drawings” were done with the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator, although they were originally created for a very different project – a laser-cut puzzle design that I’ve been playing around with for months. At some point, I’ll be trying to do something with that too?
