Barely Remember

Barely Remember is a scant 12-page zine mixing original art with journal-style prose entries. The full-colour artwork is the highlight as Jen uses a lovely mix of watercolours to shower party scenes with while her grayscale protagonist wanders through with a camera. The opening line “Nights none of us can remember are carefully sealed in a shoebox in my closet” is indicative of the tone of the zine overall as Jen draws a dichotomy between melancholic text and artwork of typical frat-boy partygoers. Unfortunately for us, the zine is over too soon. (Harley R. Pageot)
