who? HOO!

29 Apr

I am excited to share the cover design for my newest zine all about one of my favourite types of bird, owls. It is titled who? HOO! This is my latest zine since mountains made of fur, which was my first. This new volume who?HOO! combines hand-drawn, digital, collage, printmaking and photographic imagery all inspired by this powerful and majestic bird. There are just a few minor finishing touches needed and then it will be ready to print. I will be distributing some to lucky mail art pen pals and would also like to happily trade one of my zines for a zine, postcard, drawing, etc. with the first 15 people who leave a comment on this post.

    I would gladly make a trade with you :) I’ve just recently discovered your blog and am blown away by your work. I’m also envious that you live in a tiny town. I’m in Vancouver. It is not tiny.

    Yipee!! I”m not too late. I would love to trade with you. I need a little more time to make your next mail art even half as good and the last EPIC of EPICVILLE (70s man meat and all) package. Need to stew on it… think… plunder thrift/dollar stores. Hmmm.

    This is brilliant. I love owls, who doesn’t?! My mum used to have a pet owl when she was a little girl. Yeh thats right, you heard me… a PET owl. I will have to find you a photograph, you’d love it. I’m getting some goodies made soon but won’t be ready for a few weeks, will your awesome trade offer still stand then? Would love to be your mail-art-pen-pal! Lots of Love, Emily May x
