Make your own Wheen pothole plants

Make your own Wheen pothole plants


As explained in the zine, I was inspired by the work of Steve Wheen in London, who has been planting bright flowers in nuisance potholes so as to alert drivers and cyclists to their presence. I think it's a lovely idea and everyone should do it. :)

For this one I challenged myself not to cross something out, even though I'd mis-written and had put something on the page that I didn't want. It is an interesting constraint, especially for someone like me who pretty much crosses out and rewrites every word of anything I compose!

A kind of introduction

Hello and welcome to Zine per diem, a blog dedicated to documenting my new personal resolution: I challenge myself to to produce a quotidian zine for a whole year. If I'm successful, I'll keep on going. Who knows, perhaps I'll keep making a zine a day for a decade! But let's not let me get ahead of myself.

Take a look at my original blog post if you would like to learn how a friend's housefire led to Zine per diem. The progression is fairly logical, I swear!

If you'd like to see how easy it is to make a little zine of your very own, take a look at SamProof's YouTube video (it's the same one I linked in the above blog post, so if you watched it there then don't worry):



I'm really excited to come up with a format that I can use to upload each zine that I make so that y'all can print and construct any and all of them for your viewing pleasure. Alas, it's never so simple as scanning and posting. Nonetheless, I shall endeavour to come up with a workable format ASAP.

I was going to set a collection of rules and limitations, but then I realised I was working against myself - the entire point of this challenge is to foster creativity, not to force conformity to arbitrary rules. The single rule is that I produce some kind of zine every day.

In the future I hope to collect various zine-related info and create feature posts as well, but there's too far in the future for me to think about while still struggling with my first serious full-time job. But the thought is there, marinating away.

I'm keen to get moving on beautifying this blog, so here I will leave it. I look forward to posting a zine per diem from now until the foreseeable future. Au revoir!

A short story for EJ

A short story for EJ


This is the zine that started it all. When I put it together I was just practicing the process from SamProof's video. Once I had the prototype, I figured I may as well do something for EJ as anything else, and here it is.
