Better You

Merlin’s Beard! I sure am excited to share the zine I created for Light Grey Art Lab's Stacks exhibition, a collection of zines created to commemorate each of the past 30 years! I was given the year 2007, so my mind immediately went to Harry Potter (but then, whenever does it not?). It is timely that I’m sharing this with you today, because it was on this exact date in 2007 that the final Harry Potter book was released to eager wizards and muggles worldwide. 

I considered approaching this, my first ever zine, in a number of ways. I wanted to make something that could be interactive in some way, so I came up with the idea of an activity book. It was fun to include little moments and details that weren’t included in the movies and to make the characters look the way I think they look based on the canon, rather than the movie version. I’m pretty sure both hardcore Pottheads and casual fans alike will have fun filling this out! I’ve included some of my favorite pages here and a gif that shows all the spreads. 

This zine will be sold in person at Light Grey Art Lab and on Light Grey’s online shop starting August 1st. They’re a very limited edition so if you want one, get on it quick! 

Janna is brilliant.

  1. the rain today is a bummer. i wanted to go to the nice, air-conditioned gym, but i would’ve been drenched by the time i got there. so i worked out in my un-air-conditioned apartment and still got drenched.
  2. i don’t even have a job and i know i want to retire to the beach at age 28, and i don’t care.
  3. faithy comes to visit me tomorrow, and i can’t wait to see her beautiful face!
  4. i have like nothing else positive to say today because i’m just another nasty rain cloud.
