I encountered Ride for the first time today and it is awesome. Each volume contains a series of sketches of Wellington bus passengers. Along with showing off some serious sketching skill (each drawing must be completed ON THE BUS), it’s also highly entertaining as each volume also includes a snippet of (invariably hilarious) conversation overheard on the bus. A quick read and a recognisable experience for anyone who’s ever been on a Wellington bus.

This zine is just entertaining. Featuring photographs, interviews, observations, tips, wee stories… entertaining. Read it.

I love the illustrations in this zine… they kind of remind me of Rug Rats (still a huge fan) and I can totally imagine it as a mini-cartoon all of its own. Mr Ray is also strangely endearing, considering the somewhat grim subject matter. Am hoping there’ll be more to follow this!

As you may remember, I really love practical zines that help you get stuff done!! This zine is all about making your own products for cleaning the house… genius!! As a natural and cheap alternative to buying commerical products, I’ll def be trying some of these out.

This zine is the diary of a relationship break-up… gritty in some parts and hilarious in others, I think most people will relate to at least one conversation relayed in this zine.
