On a winter's night in 2016, artists and writers gathered in a downtown Kenosha craft beer brewery to draw and write their way to the first issue of a zine called Moss Piglet. They called themselves the Kenosha/Racine Area Zine Makers (shortened in 2016 to Krazines). Since that beginning, the Krazines have hosted art jams, urban and rural sketching adventures, and continue to publish Moss Piglet every month. This zine has grown from a 16-page, black-and-white, saddle-stitched publication to a full-color and perfect bound edition that's professionally printed on high-quality stock.
Anyone can join the Krazines by adding their names to its Facebook group and/or by submitting their visual art, photography, prose and poetry to our publication. We love to publish work by people who building their creative voices and expressions, as the Krazines are honored to share work by established writers, photographers, and visual artists.
Some Krazines' members enjoy a field trip to Chicago and it Art Institute in 2019
