DO IT YOURSELF presented an afternoon of workshops and conversations by three local artists, publishers, and community organizers centered around their methods and practices of independent publishing. For this special event at B R U N A, each participant spoke for about 30 minutes, sharing their work and perspectives with attendees. This event was organized by ROSIE Lockie.
The workshop program was as follows:
ROSIE Lockie discussed her own path from painting to self-publishing by focusing on a few zine and comic projects and her approach to them vis-a-vis fine art, zines, residency opportunities, and self-direction.
ANDREW Molitor compared the differences between handmade book bindings and print-on-demand platforms in his own publishing practice.
BAILEY Cheney introduced attendees to the world of risograph-prizted zines, providing a brief artistic history, prepping work for print, and zine assembly.
