zine2018 First Six Issues (PDF Bundle)


zine2018 was a monthly zine project. Each issue explores a central theme through my personal lens, as I try to focus and explore issues, ideas and problems in and around my life. zine2018 is a personal project that, hopefully, is resonate with those navigating their own tough years.
