I’ve been working on this NEW collection of 14 explorations and after excessive and admittedly abundant editing, refining, revising, and perfecting… it is ready to release to you! I HOPE you L O V E it! It’s hard to fathom but since 2011, when I started developing the Daisy Yellow Zine I’ve written 18 regular issues, 4 special ICAD-themed issues, plus 2 Creative Nudges! If you’ve got a zine scorecard, that’s 24 digital zines. The Creative Nudge is different from a regular zine because it is much longer, with expanded explorations + tutorial videos.
