I wanted to make a zine for someone's birthday. I have a little toy fox that I use for stories. Through the stories, the fox character has evolved to like studying, dango and collecting mushrooms. I decided to make an 8-page zine about the fox and his mushroom obsession.

I tried to style the zine after a housekeeping magazine like Martha Stewart, Oprah and Sunset. The idea was to make the magazine that a mushroom-obsessed fox would buy monthly.

To make the zine I used pencil drawings, Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and word processing. It was a lot of fun to make and see the content come together.

The hardest part was doing the research for content and deciding what to omit for the layout. I needed to change my vision a bit to have things fit in 8 pages. The good thing is that I have lots of ideas for more issues.

My next challenge is finding a place where I might be able to sell the zine.
