Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
Washtower, an appealingly droll collection of vignettes and one-panel cartoons, will make you look at plug sockets differently. The man behind it all is Ben Rowe, an illustrator with a taste for the mundane — brought to life by his surreal sense of humour and knack for puns. Among these pages, you’ll find the Naan On Wire (doesn’t end well) and a tray of Watercrass (parental advisory: it’s foul-mouthed). This is also Ben’s very first zine, so we’ll be keeping a keen eye out for more of his work.
