Able Zine is a volunteer led and disabled run publication and creative agency in London. In August 2021 I features on the front and back cover of issue 2 and I had artwork included and featured as a model in the editorial “See You At Home”. A selection of the editorial was also exhibited along Lower Stable Street in Coal Drops Yard with KIOSK N1C.
The back cover photo was more DIY, I did the hair with the help of a mirror and the image was taken by Oscar Vinter in a makeshift photoshoot in our bedroom.
The cover photo was part of the editorial below

The editorial process was a collaboration from the beginning and miniature set designer Lucy Drew Bell created miniature models of our ideal accessible home spaces with input from the models, she also included several of my artworks in miniature form in the pieces. In addition I designed an adult bib for the shoot, with a digital collage on which was brought to life by the sewing talents of Emily Fitz-Harris of Crafty Eclair . Photographs of the bib and of the miniatures are below.
