to us from you

We had this idea to not only share the work of our favorite artists, but also the people who support us. Every Thursday we hope to feature three new artists who have submitted their work to us via email. These are the first three, we hope you enjoy.

Thank you so much for checking these artists out. We are so excited to give other people a platform to share their work. If you are interested in submitting your own pieces, email us at thealmostfamouszine@gmail.com. Be sure to write us a few paragraphs about you and your work. We are looking forward to seeing what you have to show us.

Until next time!

the diary of a teenage girl

I’M SICK OF HIDING ALL MY THOUGHTS! A journal is here to listen. I need to use it…damn!

This is something I sat and contemplated doing because a journal is something so personal and beautiful full of secrets and stories just for yourself. But I felt like it would be really cool to just share a few, less personal parts of my journal. This article will include collages I’ve done, things I’ve drawn and a little pieces I wrote about no one in particular. Enjoy these little snippets of my life through my eyes.

So that is all. I’ve given up a small piece of me that I haven’t had the courage to share before. It feels weird but exciting. A lot of these pieces were made by a younger more naive version of myself. Its strange to look back on who I once was and what I believed would come out of my life (and how wrong I was).

Writing about your feelings and your life is something so special. I highly encourage everyone to do it. You can write about anything. It’s so therapeutic. I bought this journal back in 2016 and there are still so many pages to be filled, it was always so hard for me to do it. But it has now become such an important part of my day. Every night I sit alone, with my favorite playlist on, writing all my feelings out or even drawing them. It’s one space you can truly be your self. NO judgement, NO fear, just you and everything you have to say.

Thank you so much for reading.

Until next time,

the story of an image – streets of paris

Howdy y’all, Andi here. This is the first part in my ongoing series, “The Story of an Image.” In a world where everything is so public and everything seems to belong to everyone, we have these moments frozen in time that only we who experienced them can truly understand. The story behind an image will mean something different to every individual, and that’s what makes it so special. It is ours and ours only to hold on to, and no one can take that away from us. Here is just a snippet into a story behind one of my images. I hope you enjoy.

-Andi
