Sleeping Creatures is a website where I sell my own zines, and a few zines my friends made.
What’s up with the name? I’ve long thought of my creativity as sleeping creatures who I need to wake up. Wake up!
Who am I? I’m Alex Anne Der, the author of a zine called Alex. I have been making zines since I was in high school in the early 1990’s (aha! you do the math!) Zines mean so much to me because they were a form of freedom for me when I was younger; they were a form of expression and voice when I didn’t otherwise have one. I still feel that way about zines, actually. Zines are community, and self-expression, and spaces where there are no editors. Zines are fucking awesome, is what I’m trying to say. Make a zine!
