Nicholas Gazin oversees the production of a zine in which each participant receives a quick portfolio review and assignment for their one page contribution to a zine. In the span of a just three hours we will go from conception to final product. The point of this workshop is to help remind you that you should be exactly who you want to be and do what you want to do. You are the only you and this workshop is about exploring that with a communally produced zine.
