Growing Up Zine Seeks Submissions!

tumblr_n5drumECwn1taxqyqo1_1280-1

A couple months ago, Dana — the lovely editor of growing up zine — invited me to contribute to issue number one! I am very excited to have my work featured in this new “…zine about transitioning into adulthood — and the boons and blunders you may stumble upon along the way…”

According to Dana, rolling submissions are still accepted and the zine will hopefully be released by the end of the month. You can submit anything your heart desires, as long as it fits the overarching theme of GROWING UP! This could include anything relating to being in your 20s, life stories/experiences, horticulture, transitioning into the adult world, cultural and societal influences, etc. It can be poetry, prose, short stories, nonfiction, and so forth. There is no character limit and the format is open to contributor preference.

For more information, please check out growingupzine.tumblr.com. You can submit via Tumblr or email to growingupmag@gmail.com.

Here, you can take a look at the further development of the interior illustrations.

Over the course of this process, some of the phobias were swapped out — but this exercise was an important step to the final illustrations.
