Hey guys! Cushy has a booth at this year’s ABQ Zine Fest where we’ll be selling zines from our creative team, trading old zines of mine, and generally hanging out with rad zinesters! 100% of the proceeds from our zine sales will go towards Hurricane María and Harvey relief (DM if you curious where specially). I’ll also be teaching a worship from 3:30-5:00 on zines and community making, so come hang out! There’s going to be around 50 other vendors and local food trucks, so bring the fam bam!! #zine#zinesters#abqzinefest
I had so much fun at the #abqzinefest yesterday. 😱 👏 I had so much fun that i forgot phones and the internet exist. Luckily my best friend snapped this pic of me sewing.
Folx here are super inviting n' mellow... Someone here said ABQ is like a giant garage sale. We will be back for sure! 😻💛
Having someone flip through the pages of something you made and put feelings into, stop and point at a page, then look up at you, and say "I've felt that way before" was one of the most gratifying moments of today. It takes a lot to let yourself feel, process those feelings, and put them on paper in a way that makes sense to others. To be able to share that experience of feeling broken - something you regularly feel shame and self loathing for - with another person, and to see them connect with it and admit out loud that they feel that way too sometimes...that's some shit. Maybe even worth the stress and hand cramps and lockjaw and lost sleep. Thanks to everyone who came out to @abqzinefest and everyone who was supportive along the way.
