Mae decided to create her 24 hour zine on a slow day at work with a little help from her cousin Neeka. Her zine deals with the subject of working at their family’s restaurant, and features tons of hand-drawn illustrations and hand-written text. They talk about the different experiences they have had dealing with the public, including rude guests and uncalled for racial “jokes” made by customers, and also share their favorite items on the menu. Mae also explores her relationship with her family and the people that she works with, and how this experience has influenced her life.

I’m going to go ahead and say that Rick Silva may be someone you want to watch out for. Given only 24 hours and a backpack full of materials, Rick was able to create an absolutely wonderful zine jam-packed with text, pictures, and collage… on the go! This is the only zine submitted to the 24 Hour Zine Thing that was created “on the road”, and it is definitely worth reading!

Caravan #10.5: 24 Hours of Pure Geekery by Rick Silva
Name:
Rick Silva
City: Osterville, MA
Zine Goal: Digest sized. My usual zine is more of a newsletter, so
I’d like to do this one in a more “traditional” zine look, with more
collage stuff and minimal white space.

Rick Silva took a really interesting approach to his 24 hour zine challenge – he worked from the road! Armed with a laptop, some zine-making materials, unread comic books, music and maps, he headed out for an entire 24 hours of “pure geekery”, which included attending “Harry Potter Day” and taking part in many of the events, as well as participating in a Magic:The Gathering tournament! He writes about each of his experiences, and even has time to add in reviews of the comic books and music that he read/listened to that day! My absolutely favorite component of this zine would have to be “During these 24 Hours”, which lists several interesting events that took place during the 24 hours it took to complete this zine. The last few pages of the zine feature a “Photo Gallery” of all the places Rick visited and saw that day. Rick definitely met his “zine goal” with this gem, and has cemented his place in the Hall of Fame of 24 Hour Zines. Buy propecia online.
