About

The Olympia Pelican Press is Evolving!
For a few months now, this Patreon page has been on a hiatus. Fans of the Olympia Pelican Press know it as an ongoing miniature zine. Friends of the artist behind the Olympia Pelican Press know her to be both utterly passionate and overwhelmed by the zine, and currently unable to continue down that path for a little while. (Don't worry, I just need some time and then I'll inevitably come back to it.) In the meantime, those same friends also know that the artist behind the OPP is at all times overwhelmed and bursting with multiple projects that NEED to exist in the world. It's a bit of a problem, because this need takes precedence over all others, no matter how dire. Much in the way that desperately needing to pee, or having a cat in one's lap does. Now that we have entered the Time Of The Virus, the artist finally has much more time to dedicate to the creation of all these projects that want to exist more than she can bear. She also is in an even more difficult place financially speaking than she was before, which is surprising since things had gotten preeetty low previously. So, please give a warm welcome back to the Patreon page! The first new project that this page will be supporting is
The Coronavirus Quarantine Fun Times & Activities Book For Adults, which is going to be a collection of things to read, make, and do while we all wait this thing out. This book is for anyone suffering from boredom while being forced to stay home, presented by someone who is never, ever bored. (No, really). The goal is to finish this project up relatively soon and release it as a full PDF that can be printed at home, so no one else's hands will have ever touched it but yours. However, in the interest of keeping y'all entertained, and keeping the artist to a schedule, it is going to be released through this medium as piecemeal printable PDF's every few days as it is produced. Your monthly contribution to this effort will grant you access to every single activity and fun time idea as they are released, along with a final copy once it is done. Additionally, you will also get exclusive access to the artist via email at any time you want, and the opportunity to help shape the final result with your input. Topics will include mending, cooking, gardening, arts & crafts, survival techniques, and ways to interact with people and have a good time that don't involve touching. And surely more. Please note that this book is unlikely to be suitable for children, as the artist doesn't know very many, and is considerably more fond of animals.
More importantly, please note that your contribution, however small, makes a significant difference in the life of the artist, who spent all her money stocking up on food (and a reasonable amount of toilet paper) in order to prepare for the current stay-at-home order, and now has no money left to order wine from the internet, or any other sundry. If you would prefer to send wine, please contact the artist directly for her address and many, many blessings.

Below is the original text from this page, in case you are curious about what this project started out as:

The world's tiniest periodical! 

The Olympia Pelican Press is a very little zine (or, "a small-circulation self-published work of original ... text and images, usually reproduced via photocopier." -Wikipedia). Each month, every subscriber receives 2 copies of a tiny book. So, you can add to (or start!) your own miniature library, and also share one with a friend!

Lovingly written, drawn, inked, photocopied, cut, torn, and folded by hand, each book is an appreciation of a tiny slice of life. 

Here's what people are saying about Olympia Pelican Press:

"It's even cuter in person than I expected!" - The Author's Boyfriend's Coworker

"I absolutely can't wait for my next issue! Each book packs a wallop!" - The Author's Middle School English Teacher
