Beautiful illustrations and lettering by Fréya, who is based in London and Australia. I stumbled on her work quite by surprise on Etsy, and was immediately drawn into her wonderfully quirky style. And her work includes beautiful quotes and poetry-like prose that leaves me smiling every time.

See her Etsy shop to purchase her prints.

Good to Know #2: An extra note!

Hello again!

I had a few requests to add some illustrations into the zine, and so if anyone wants to send over scanned images of their works along with their quotes, please feel free to do so. (and it does make sense, as we’re talking about personal styles!)

Just a few things about sending over images for the zine:
1. The image should be in black and white, (dark grey is acceptable as well) – colors won’t show up well, so you can tweak your image to make it B&W.
2. Image must be at least 200 pixels for clarity.
3. Images must be accompanied by your thoughts on the topic at hand.
3. Images will be chosen based on clarity, the space available in the zine and relevance!

All participants will get a free download of the PDF of the issue.

I’m sorry I can’t send a physical copy to each and every one who has participated, but starting from this round, participants can also purchase the zine at just USD4 that will cover international shipping & handling (retail price is USD7 + shipping).

I can’t wait to see what you have to say about this topic! :)

If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this email anytime.
