Melon Collie - A Smashing Pumpkins Fanzine - OUT NOW!

image


Everyone! Be you Smashing Pumpkin/Generation X’er/90s alternative rocker, or just a lover of illustration! Today, we’re launching an anthology zine that celebrates the Pumpkins’ landmark album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. 

We’ve enlisted some amazing artists to work on a page for each song of the album. Like our recent Macro Shrub zines, it’s  monochrome, A5 and features a screen printed cover by Daisy Whitewolff. Eurico Sa Fernandes’ Macro Mono font continues to to the leg work, with Murray doing illustration/organisation and Jack doing the foreword/layout.

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone involved!

We launched the zine at the Bristol Zine Fair (which was a right laugh) and it’s now available in our shop here for £4 (Including UK P&P).

Yo all Smashing Pumpkins/Generation X’ers/90s alternative rock fans! We’re working on an anthology zine that celebrates the Pumpkins’ landmark album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. 
Like our recent Macro Shrub zines, it’s going to be monochrome, A5 and will feature a screen printed cover by Daisy Whitewolf. Apart from that, it’s simple: we want 28 artists to create an image for each of the 28 songs on Mellon Collie.If you’d like to be involved, drop us an email by 10th July at melonshrubbing@gmail.com and link us to your work. Once we’ve got our Pumpkin crew, we’ll assign each artist a track from the album. Then it’s drawing time.

Melon and Collie: A Smashing Pumpkins Zine Project

Attention all Smashing Pumpkins/Generation X’ers/90s alternative rock fans! We’re working on an anthology zine that celebrates the Pumpkins’ landmark album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. We want you to get involved!

If you’d like to be involved, drop us an email at melonshrubbing@gmail.com and link us to your work. Once we’ve got our Pumpkin crew, we’ll assign each artist a track from the album. Then it’s drawing time. 

When we have all the work, we’ll print the zine up and sell it at cost price online. We just want to make something to commemorate a great album and have fun doing it.
