We listened to songbirds and rush hour cars and welcomed in the day, peace in London in summertime is great, on days like this I feel like I can escape.
Woohoo! I am finished! This is my latest zine "The ROOKIE Flavour". It's about Rookie, who would have thought it, and it's 22 pages of collages, rants, pictures, dreams, angstyness (is that a word?) and how teenagehood feels with Rookie. I cut out pictures from old magazines and an awesome book which once was pretty cool from a thrift store (it's about Take That and really nineties!). There are also many jewels, sticker, glitter and the ultimate Rookie Playlist. Sounds awesome, I know, and I also know that you desperately want to have it, haha.
But seriously, I set up an etsy yesterday to sell it. It comes as a pdf, and it's only two dollars. I am also very very open for zine swaps, so just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can swap'em. My Etsy is called "The Unicorn's smell" and I would be so happy if someone would buy it! I'd like to say thank you in advance.
I made it this weekend, with lots of support from David Bowie and The flaming lips. Pretty irrelevant, but this just makes everything better (oh, and I also listened to Reggae...). I just suddenly felt very creative, and I was like "Oh I need to make a Rookie zine". And this is how it turned out. I am very satisfied with it, I really like the way it looks. It's pretty awesome, just saying.
Sneak peek (these aren't the best pages, but I don't want to show the rest to you yet)(which means buy it!):
So, um. Hope you are all fine. ALSO BIG BIG NEWS! I finally ordered my Doc Martens! You would never believe how exited and happy I am! I hope they will arrive on Friday.
