It wasn't a huge thing. Just a mini zine that I did as a gift for my Grandad. He's helped me out tremendously over the past year, and I wanted to say thank you the best way I know how.
I've never made a personal zine before, but I really enjoyed the process. It was productive and meaningful, and a nice way to wrap up 2012. I also sent out some fancy snail mail to people, and documented the process.
I think the biggest surprise out of the entire experience is that I've gotten much quicker at making zines.
