Learn more about the project!
Happy Travels: Animal Crossing Travel zine is an unofficial zine by fans for fans! This zine is based in the Philippines, which also means orders of the zine project will all be shipped out from the philippines.
✤ Theme: Self-care and travelling ✤
Fans of the franchise must have noticed the hardwork these special characters have done for their careers. One example is Kicks, from a shoe-shiner to owning his own shoe shop! Similar to us, we ourselves would need a break from our busy lives and enjoy a well-deserved vacation. So do our dear friends in Animal Crossing.
The purpose of this zine is to create illustrations and designs of these characters simply creating memories, relaxing, having an adventure, and so on. The vision for the merchandise entails inspiration from postcards, postage stamps, and more.
The sub topics of the zine are Tropical, Snowy climates, Urban tourism, and Camping.
✤ Zine Specifications: ✤
A5 size (6”x8”inches) Art zinePerfect bound with soft coverApproximately 40+ pages
This zine will feature 30+ wonderful artists, and 16 merch artists.
✤ Artist Compensation: ✤
Earnings from this project will go towards zine manufacturing, merch manufacturing, and shipping costs. This is additionally how we’ll be able to provide artists their compensation for contributing to the zine! The mods will try and zero out as much as possible to provide extra goodies for the zine.
Our compensation heavily relies on our sales! The lowest payment we will offer contributing artists is a physical copy of the zine. Though we aim to give the the biggest bundle of the zine.
