THE FEEL GOOD ZINE

"Internet Puppies" By Artist: Katie Alexander-O'Carroll
"Internet Puppies" By Artist: Katie Alexander-O'Carroll
 

 The Feel Good Zine is a collaborative comic project between 40 artists creating illustrations and comics about things that make them feel good. We hope to provide a positive outlook to anyone reading this zine and encourage the reader to think about things that make them feel good as well. Making art and reading comics can be a great outlet or for people who struggle with mental health. We hope that this zine provides a positive space for sharing thoughts to help people feel better together.

This zine is aimed to be 44 pages, gloss printed, full colour and A5 sized. The zine launch will be melbourne-based in July. If we have great feedback we might also open an online store.

WHY WE NEED A KICKSTARTER  

Making this zine in colour was not a question- to achieve the best positive vibes colour is essential. Colour printing however is very costly and this is where you can help. We need funding to cover the cost of printing and possibly for covering the launch. We want this zine to look the best it can and to be able to spread the feel good vibes by printing as many as well can. For $800 we can print around 200 but we'd like to print so many more. I'd like to use as little money as possible from the profits of zine sales to be used for printing/venue uses so we can donate the most money. Any little bit would help.

The Feel Good Zine will raise funds for the Headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation. Headspace supports young people between 12 – 25 years old who are going through a tough time to get the help they need for problems affecting their wellbeing.

Risks and challenges

The risks we face include things like printing issues, our designated charity not approving the project or having our chosen venue for the launch cancel. Other than that, we have all 40 artists locked in, all works submitted and the zine is ready to be printed as soon as funding targets are met.
