Hand Made Joy

It came from over the sea through the postal service

Hand made joy

I spend a lot of time window shoppng on Etsy. Normally for t-shirts involving bicycles or birds. Sometime bicycles and birds. I’ve been having a bit of a zine binge lately and just got these off of Aijung Kim (who I think is based in Richmond, Virginia). I love the way these zines turn something personal, an absent minded recognition noted in a pocketbook,then redrawn and considered and illustrated later. Brings a whole new life to it all.

I am admittedly a bit giddy for the hand made but when they are diary-esque based like these (even the poetry zines have that kind of feel) they become really touching, comforting even. Check out her Etsy shop here

(I obviously can relate to this image^^^^^)

  1. Thanks for posting about this! it’s always neat to see my zines photographed on someone else’s home across the ocean. I really like your music, too. “Time” is stuck in my head!
