Wayne Palesado and Vena Moore are first time zine makers from the Bronx. Their zine, The Journey, is a collection of illustrations, illlustrated poems, short stories, and articles of interest. Artists and writers most of their lives, they are using the medium of zines to showcase their catalog of past work, as well as the premiering of new work from themselves and others. Wayne is the editor, graphic designer, illustrator, and writer. His partner Vena Moore handles the printing as well as writing many of the featured articles. Inviting other writers and artists to contribute to the zine, the first issue collects works from three different contributors. Distributed in book stores throughout the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, they are currently working on the second issue and have launched their on-line identity at thejourney105.wordpress.com and have also started a meetup page to advertise events about the zine at www.meetup.com/NYC-Self-Publishers-and-Their-Readers-Group.
