Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
Sticking with the travel theme, this weekend the letterbox clattered open with a particularly lovely pair of zines from Thomas Goodwin and Laura Millward. Both illustrators, the pair are in the habit of keeping holiday journals when they go to new places, and the result is Lost & Found — a series of comics detailing their adventures. All the ingredients for a good trip are right here: Weezer singalongs in the car, hot chocolate sauce, balcony views stretching out into the ocean. In Dubrovnik, Laura samples vegetarian cuisine — free gift, oddly, a stone with a smiley face painted onto it — while in Chicago, they dabble with heftier options; Tom falling victim to a Chicago sandwich so intense that “the bread can’t maintain its strength because of the beef juice”. Laura mentions on her blog that they’re considering a Holland chapter next. As souvenirs go, this puts your sombrero and your straw donkey to shame!
