Aimee Fleck, a fantastic student at the Maryland Instutute College of Art, made a little zine called The Fat Femme’s Guide to Loving Summer.  Inside there are interviews with some really foxy ladies, instructions on how to make friendship bracelets, a recipe for beignets, new hairstyles to try, a playlist, and lots of suggestions for great summer fashion. It’s all beautifully, colorfully drawn and very well designed, plus sassy and fun.  The zine is also getting plenty of tumblr love, which makes me really happy.

You can view it for free (here) or for a mere $6 you can own your very own copy (order here).  You’ll not only be supporting a young artist but also a fat-acceptance advocate!

My last post was about a little zine I made to go with my comps.  Recently I also helped make another zine called “How We Survive” through the GSC.  We made it for the SpeakUp! Against Sexual Violence, which was held here at Carleton last Thursday.  There was a really lovely article about it in the Carletonian that came out today.  The event involved students submitting written pieces about their experiences with sexual violence (with the option of submitting anonymously) and the pieces being read by students (some people read their own piece, some read anonymous submissions, some read submissions by students who didn’t feel comfortable reading their own piece).  It was extremely moving.  We had a much larger turn out this year than last, which really gives me hope about the number of Carleton students committed to ending sexual violence on our campus.

The zine we made to go along with the SpeakUp! is a book about the continuing process of survival at Carleton, made entirely by Carleton students/survivors.  We put a call out to all of our friends asking for tips about their process of survival, especially relating to being at Carleton.  The submissions we got back were really stellar and I think the finished product is really beautiful and powerful.    You can check out the publications page on the GSC website for more information about all of the office’s publications, including information about BODIES which comes out next week.

I don’t think I’ve written about the 2010 senior art show, DIMENSIONAL VISION, yet.  The experience of hanging the show and getting all of my work ready for presentation was exhausting, but entirely worth it.  As part of my presentation I made a small zine to go with the ceramic work.  It was my little way of combining the things I love most (books and ceramics) into one adorable little package.

I uploaded said adorable little package, and you can view the online book (link below).  I have also uploaded many images of my comps project to the Gallery section of this site!  It’s the most brand-spankin-new part of this site and I’m pretty jazzed about its potential.

Since the website for DIMENSIONAL VISION is hosted by Carleton, it will be up until the end of time.  If you want to see images of my project later or see the work of my peers, you can just mosey on over there any time you please.
