How to tell your friends you love them by making a tiny tiny zine
Artist Karla Monterrosa is showing you how to express your love using only a single sheet of white paper
Let's face it, expressing feelings is kind of frightening. But with illustrator and animator Karla Monterrosa leading the way, it's possible to make your giant emotions into something that will fit in the palm of your hand and not at all scare away your intended. We've introduced you to Monterrosa before — here she is illustrating some of the more poignant and embarrassing moments that go along with having a human body — but now, she's going miniature to make a zine that tells her favourite friend that she loves her.
Watch the video:
In this video, made by filmmaker Joella Cabalu, you'll find out how a single sheet of underwhelming 8.5x11 paper can become a magical missive of affection directed toward the friend, colleague, teammate, neighbour or complete stranger of your choosing. Have fun!
