Do you know what a zine is? A zine in a nutshell is self-publicated original artwork (more info). One of my final projects was to create a zine based on the origin of something. I chose to create a zine focused on the Necktie and how it began, it lists many possible reasons how the tie came about. “Maybe a man created it as a way to accessorize to compete with women.” Further it explains why you should wear one. “It doubles as a belt when you forget one.” or “It can also be used as a sweatband.”  It was pretty fun. Above are a few pages from it. In a few weeks you will be able to see it at the Salt Lake City Library or on their website. They have the largest zine collection in the world! Oh and if you were wondering those who create zines are considered zinesters.
