New Zine – Dix Pix

32 page colour zine with illustrations and text and available here.

Dix Pix looks at the queer male/trans/non-binary body and why it is common for people to send naked pictures via dating apps. The zine takes an experimental approach in its visual style and tackles themes of masculinity, queerness, solitude and the body.

Dix Pix features illustrations of dick pics that were sent to me over the gay dating app Grindr. Along with the images there are text messages and exchanges that also occurred over the app.

Gay dating and hookup apps such as Grindr have changed the way gay people communicate when looking for a partner. Face to face communication is not the first port of call. When using Grindr it’s very common to receive unsolicited pictures of naked people with penises or dick pics as they are also known. In Dix Pix I examine the need for the male (and other genders who have a penis) body to be exposed in order to gather attention through dating apps.

Available on my Etsy store.
The zine is based on the short film Dix Pix.

New Zine – NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse

28 page black and white comic book zine + a cat badge 38mm (1.5inches)

The Zine + Badge can be bought here.

A large destructive cat is hurtling towards planet earth. If it hits, the cat will surely destroy the planet and all the people who live on it.

NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse is a comic with a difference. You are asked 10 questions throughout the zine. You need to answer the questions from an autistic and queer perspective in order to survive. Answer correctly the planet is saved. Answer incorrectly and we all die.

NeuroQueer Cat Apocalypse combines humour, comic books and provocative questions to ask questions on autistic identity and the place of the autistic person in society. Each page features illustration and text, presenting an autistic and perspective on life.

The zine comes with a badge of a cat. The badge is in colour and zine is in black and white.

Designed and hand made by Steven Fraser.

Note this zine is not for kids.
