MML's zine "Girl with a Temple Behind Her: Ten Days in Bali." is one of several travel diary zines. This one is about the overwhelming opportunity to go somewhere great, and the inherent guilt of not really enjoying yourself when you're there. It's a narrative that toes the line between really intense feelings of joy and positivity and of guilt and negativity.
MML claims to not be a visual artist and used to feel intimidated by the zine community. Until relizing that it didn't matter if you couldn't draw or paint or print, you could still write and cobble stuff together, foerming your own individula interpetation of what a zine is or could be. Which to me is the essence of what zines are all about.
