- Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Saffa Khan, Pakistani illustrator and printmaker based in Manchester, UK. I make zines and rage against machines. I explore themes of identity, culture, race and mental health in my work and turn my daily feelings into self-published printed matter. I also run @tenderhandspress and @makestuffclub
- How did you get into zines?
I was introduced to zines when I became part of the ever-growing online DIY arts and feminist community around 2009. Ever since then I contributed to zines and made my own about home, belongingness and identity.

2. How did you get into zines?
I think I heard about riot grrl/feminist zines on Tumblr. I spent my last few years in school wishing I was part of an alternative DIY community. I got to curate/edit my first zine at uni, along with a zine launch and it was an amazing and stressful experience that got me hooked on collaborative arts and alternative printing.
