/ NO. 40 READ OR DIE . MY VERY LIMITED NEW 102 PAGE ZINE IN COOL SILVER

This is the second installment of my ‘CONCEALED ORIGIN’ zine series as it was based off of my mood board showcased in the first installment. This zine is 102 pages + hand cut with a metallic silver cover. I made this installment for similar reasons as the first – branding, self-promotion (something I’m horrible at otherwise), self-expression but most importantly – positive self-affirmation.

The concept of this zine is super simple – it represents my brain and all the things I often think about. Basically, if one were to open up my head and take a snapshot of what was going on in there – this zine is EXACTLY what it would look like. I call it “Read or Die” (or “THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ELUSIVE”) because I often get frustrated when people won’t read my writing despite completely understanding why they won’t (I tend to be very lengthy). It’s just a difficult notion for me to swallow because all the heart of what I make lies in the writing. It’s something I often think about hence why it’s the title despite this particular zine actually containing very little text. This zine contains some of my personal history, as well, and a tribute to the lyrics of “All Along the Watchtower,” as this is the song that has had the most impact on my life. There are many references to my social/social media anxiety, too – as making zines is how I cope with this issue.
