As last year’s ?#@*$%! the Mainstream: the Art of DIY Self Expression
at UM’s Lowe Art Museum demonstrated, zines are a legit art form. Which is why we’re thrilled that Orlando’s suddenly blooming with them: Orlando Zine Fest
premiered in June 2013 (we’re hoping for another one soon?), featuring local mags like Kick Bright
and Is It Over Yet?
, but the strong and beautiful women of Tittie-Thyme
hadn’t unleashed their abundance upon the scene yet.
In the six months since then, though, they’ve put together three issues and a strong reputation for throwing the best parties in town. This one
should be no different: Browse and buy irreverent crafts and vintage clothing, make a holiday ornament, pick up issue No. 3, and enjoy a special Buttery Nipple shot with the artists. Tittie-Thyme
’s stated mission is to “empower, encourage and uplift”; the “have fun” part kinda goes without saying.
