Bottled: A Guide to Creating Your Own Terrarium

Terrariums- miniature container gardeners invented in the Victorian era and popular in the 70s are back again, filling insta feeds and Pinterest boards. They’re also for sale in lots of interior design and plant shops for hefty prices. But it’s pretty easy to make your own terrarium without spending too much cash, and I’ve made this zine to encourage you to do that. With advice on what plants to pick, what equipment you’ll need, how to plant up your container and care advice you too can have a garden in a bottle worthy of some lifestyle blogger, but without having to fork out £££s.

A5, 10 pages, b&w printing on green paper, hand stitched binding.

(Disclaimer: I’m not a professional gardener but the content is based on advice that’s worked for terrariums I’ve made that have been happily growing away for over a year now.)

My Fluffy Son- Comics About Bennie the Cat

mfsmfs1mfs2

In 2016, my housemate and I acquired a cat called Bennie, aka MY FLUFFY SON. Sadly Bennie passed away in September 2018, but over the time we had him I drew a number of comics about him in my sketchbook so I thought it would be nice to make them into a zine. He was such a character and I hope I’ve managed to capture that here.

16 pages, black and white photocopied with a grey cover.

Does What It Says On The Tin: A Gin In a Tin Review Zine

il_570xN.1221728698_9s0k

Pre-mixed drinks in a tin are surely one of the best inventions of modern times and have saved many a tedious journey or picnic for many of us. Stick your twee, gin in a teacup bullshit, gin in a tin is not messing about.

As they’ve grown in popularity, more and more options are available. I feel like I’ve become a bit of an oficianado when it comes to pre mixed gin and tonic (or gin in a tin) as I like to call it, so I decided to make this zine. It looks at a range of premixed drinks, reviewing them based on their taste, appearance and value for money.

This is a 12 page zine that has been risograph printed in Brighton by the excellent Dopple Press, using hunter green ink (so in keeping with the international colour of gin, green), so there will be slight variations in the print from zine to zine.

Copies of this zine are available via my Etsy shop.

HOLIBOBS Zine

This July I went on a little holiday to Glasgow, the Isle of Bute and Newcastle, had a great time and decided to make a zine about it. Amongst other things, the zine features stuff on getting the sleeper train from London to Glasgow, an ode to all the amazing carbs I ate, what happens when a bunch of radical librarians end up in a karaoke bar, what I think Metro Ken from the Newcastle Metro looks like, why you should visit Bute, and the recipe for a Buckfast negroni.
