URBAN PANCAKES/ Issue 02 Review
In this post I mentioned I received a zine from the lovely folk at the Manly Zine festival. The vine is called "Urban Pancakes" and is created by the talented Andrew Kim and Jaymes Carr.
I read it on the train home from Currarong and it was a delightful read with a combination of quirky drawings and short stories. It was entertaining but also made you think and laugh. I'm an avid reader of the magazines Frankie and Yen and this felt like the down-to-earth homemade quirky sibling. In a good way. It felt raw and relatable and yet quite polished. The lay out was aesthetically pleasing and the illustrations were unique and honest.
Basically you wont regret reading it so go check out their website;
If any of you know me in person you'd probably know I keep a journal with me everywhere I go. I enjoy writing short stories and I'm constantly drawing and designing. Creating a zine (self published mini-magazine) seems like a fun project so pretty please comment below ifyou'd be interested in reading. At the moment its just a thought drifting around in my head but maybe it'll happen...
