Light Hits Zine by Kelie Bowman and Jessie Rose Vala
We only have a handful of these handmade beauties left by the super duo team of Cinders’ own Kelie Bowman and Jessie Rose Vala. This is a sweet look into their burgeoning collaborative project, Light Hits, which is manifesting itself as we speak into a live music, video, animation amalgamation that will be unearthed upon us all this Spring with several exhibitions. If this zine is any indication (and i think it is), the world they are creating is a delicate, dark place full of imagery that is exploring masks, animal-human hybrids, flower growths, explosions, rock formations, and myth-making that harkens one back to some unknown ancient religion you never knew existed but are stoked to find out about. The zine has drawings by both Kelie and Jessie, as well as their collaborations and photos, all nicely xeroxed with hand-painted pages and laced with golden spray bursts and a silkscreened cover. Get it HERE.
