IRIS is a substance that exists in all women. It appears to be a sensible and powerful chemical, but due to the changing nature of its state, it has been studied scarcely and thus remains a mystery.

IRIS is a project I made in collaboration with Edición Instantánea in Morelia, Michoacán. We produced a silkscreened edition of 60 copies of this zine, and I drew and watercoloured extra stuff on each copy. Each zine is huge! (26.5 x 33 cm / 10.4 x 13 in) * Mexico, 2014 * Sold out
