Having Fun With Electric Zines

I’m having too much fun with Nathalie Lawhead’s Electric Zine Maker software. The design is hilariously retro, and the software is super intuitive.

Once you’ve completed all the pages in your zine, you can print them out on a single page of paper. The software keeps everything in the correct order and orientation.

After some folds and a quick snip of the scissors, you’ll have a cute little zine. (Never heard of zines? They have a cool history. You can read more about them here.)

Not bad for a 30 minute art project! The Electric Zine Maker is pay-what-you-can software. Check it out if you’re looking for some creative distraction.
