Zine Review: Dusk


Artzine, Miko Maciaszek, issue 1, mikoillustrates.com, price not listed

Dusk is an illustration zine featuring elaborate drawings of nighttime wildlife. Turning the pages, you get sucked into the immersive world of a dark woods. You can practically feel the creepy crawlies on your skin. Moths, snakes, and the living vines of possessed plants press up against you. A narrative is hinted at but never made explicit. Who are the men with the flashlights and what is their midnight mission? Who are hunting lynxes? Is the snake the same one we know from the story of Eden? This is all made doubly eerie by the almost human figures illuminated from the inside who take care of fallen animals. There is some strange battle at play, concealed inner workings that the reader is never let in on. Instead
we only see dank blank blackness. But maybe that is the point. Nature never reveals her secrets. Dusk is printed quite nicely on shiny paper and will appeal to people who love the enigmas of nature and skilled illustration. Just don’t look at it before you sleep. (Neal Armstrong)

  1. The most common acne treatment recommended by dermatologists
    is the use of antibiotics, typically tetracycline-type derivatives formulated
    to kill the acne-causing propioniform bacteria responsible for the
    inflammation and infection. Benzac AC tubes should not be shared between different users.
    The dermatologist will use a local anesthetic to help reduce the procedure pain.

  2. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
    plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back
    to get more. Thanks
