PE: Zines

Sat Mar 23, 2013, 7:59 AM


What is a Zine?


A zine (or web zine) is an online magazine or book that promotes deviantART news, interview deviants or feature artwork. They are usually submitted as a .pdf file and sometimes hosted on other sites that support web zines better.

Zines are rarely submitted, but when you do find one, they are usually really entertaining to read!


Examples


Designn Magazine Special Edition by UJz  dA Zine Issue No. 5 by dAZine  ISSUE No7 MINDGAMES is OUT by teyasaveleva  June-July 2010 Vol. 1, No. 2 by jenepooh

It might be a good idea to distinguish between "zines" - self-published or D-I-Y magazines, "web zines" - I assume the same thing but on the web, and "DA zines" which appear to be a subset of web zines. Suggesting that zines is short for web zines is a bit misleading.

Anyway, it's interesting stuff as I had no idea there were zines on dA so I might go check some of them out. :)

The real question is...how do you pronounce them? :eyes:

I (personally) pronounce Zines the same way I would pronounce it in magazines. :P

It's short for "magazines" so zines rhymes with jeans.

Zines aren't dAD exclusive. The ones here may be exclusive to dA related things but I've seen and read zines elsewhere.

I didn't say they were exclusive to dA, but I can see why you interpreted it that way. :)

As I was saying on your interview by Bart, I do love zines, I did them in high school (old school style with paper and copy machines). I might feel inspired to do a new age old school one ;D

:eyes: Come over to DELVE and do an article about old school stuff if feel inclined to. ;)

Cool group, but I'm a bit of a procrastinator and deadlines are not my friends. But added to my watch list. If ever I feel like writing a zine style article I'll throw you a note.

Oh, please do so! Or maybe I can lure you to DELVE by just inviting you into the team, even though just to have a look around first? :eyes:

It is not required to contribute to each issue of the zine. Still, we are in dire need of more folks wanting to participate in general. So I'd be happy if I can motivate more people to join us! :D

I'm already a contributor/admin to a lot of groups, so not at this time. If I do something, I will let you know ;D

I agree with *kori-hibana!
If i wouldn't knew what zines are, i'd think after reading this article that it's something deviantart-related.
Maybe you should have pointed out that there are not only DeviantArt zines (though this gallery is exclusively for dA zines, of course) :)

Thanks for the input, I will add further clarification soon. :)

umm I think zines aren't just limited to dA? My writing class recently began a project to publish our own zines--the teacher described zines as self-published mini-magazines. I often find them on the bus as well, and sometimes even in the park...

Yeah, they aren't limited to dA. :) This article is about zines that are submitted on deviantART.
