VLOG: September 2020

Happy September from Coin-Operated Press! This little vlog is all about what we got up to in September 2020! You will see our site-visit to The Space to make plans for the zine-making workshops we want to bring to you in the future, as well as Katie doing a little shopping research for the workshops! We also play a lot more D&D, Katie packages up a bunch of orders to take to the Post Office, we both have awesome natural world dates, and Chloe dives into the world of Blackout Poetry!

A note from Chloe on her September 2020…

“September was an odd month for me, full of highs and lows. I had to come to terms with the state of my poor mental health while dealing with some uncomfortable physical health issues. Combining all of that with health anxiety, and a deep sense of panic when talking to any health professional made September a wild ride for me! Where there is pain, there is art. It might sound cliché, perhaps even cheesy, but I truly do believe that art heals the soul. Poetry is our theme of the month, and I dabbled in a little blackout poetry to bring together my illustration and writing skills. I am no poet! So, I enjoyed being able to adapt my drawing skills to the poetry form. I think it is important for us all to find a way to express ourselves, especially when we are stumbling around in our low points. Make good art. Make bad art. Make art. Always.”
