My Favourite Zine Purchase

My Favourite Zine Purchase | Doodlers Anonymous

I was randomly browsing the zine category on Etsy the other night when I saw this Adventure Time Zine by Seth (aged 6) from Brisbane in Australia. I instantly bought it for only $1.20! Then I looked around the shop a little more.

Seth's mom, Tee, is a zine maker and Seth is following in her footsteps. He loves Adventure Time and this is a zine full of his fan art. I love Adventure Time myself, and this is fan art in its best and most pure form. Grown ups just can't draw like kids no matter how hard they try. The drawing of The Ice King is my favourite of them all, it captures him so perfectly.

Tee is awesome for encouraging Seth to make his drawings into zines, and all of the money he makes goes into buying him comics, as well as stationery to make more zines!

I had a little chat with Tee, and Seth is currently working hard on making his own Adventure Time comic with a story line. I noticed on the Etsy listing that Seth is keen for trades of kid friendly zines, comics, stickers, pens, etc. So I'm already planning on making a little zine of my own to trade for his next comic.

Every sale of this zine will encourage Seth to draw more, and encouraging kids to draw is so important. So I've only put a few taster pages of the zine here, if you want to see more you should head to Tee's shop and grab a copy!

  1. Sweet find. My son would be all over this and it looks like the press helped ;) It now reads that the item is sold out... hoping he prints a few more.

  2. I love kid art and Seth\'s is no exception. I think we have a future doodle addict on our hands. Yay to that!

  3. this makes me happy in so many ways!

  4. I discovered my love for drawing around 5 or 6 when I drew Popeye after watching so many cartoons my parents had on an old VHS tape. I loved watching them and I would draw him constantly. Eventually I started drawing other things, and it brought me to where I am now. This makes me so happy to see a child discover his love for drawing at such a young age like I had. He\'s doing excellent.

  5. I wish I knew about zines earlier lol...Keep doing what you\'re doing man!!!!! That\'s so cool!

  6. that\'s amazing
