Left Me Overs

My heart aches when I can’t create. What shall I do? What shall I do?

Left Me Overs is a mixed media art/perzine about my left hand, the desire to make things, and making do in general. In early summer 2013, I experienced an injury that drastically affected my ability to use my right hand/arm. This zine was the result of 3 months of on-and-off work as I tried whatever I could to keep up a decent creative output.


Nearly all of the writing and artwork was created using my non-dominant hand (with a few exceptions such as cut-paper letters for safety reasons).

This book is hand-assembled and hand bound using a slot and tab binding format. No glue, tape, staples or thread is used as the book’s pages hold itself together.
