Hi there! This is Andrea Manica. I'll be the new gal updating the OCAD Zine Library's blog.
There's lots to be excited for! It's a new school year at OCAD and things are getting underway. There have been art openings and book launches, and while it all seems to be a bit overwhelming, there is much inspiration to be had. I'm about to jump in and start collecting new self-published works from Toronto zinesters as well as contacting internet friends from abroad like Sophie from the UK: http://www.ohmyclumsyheart.etsy.com
and Carlos from Brazil: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8224972@N03/
I've been finding wonderful pages of zine libraries from all over north America, like the Anchor Archive Zine Library is Nova Scotia: http://www.robertsstreet.org/n/zine-library how beautiful! Something to strive for.
In the meantime, let's get pumped for the Student Life Fair happening in the main lobby at OCAD on September 29th from 11am to 2pm. I will be there! Many cool folks will be dropping by. We will have super zines and materials to make your own Halloweenie zine...ooo!
More details to come. Can't wait for this year to be awesome!! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get involved! I will be contacting those of you who emailed me over the summer and past little while very very soon. Keep an eye out homies.
