1134 Apparel is Live!

Just a quick note here. We’ve been working hard producing content (books, videos, and web-comics). If you enjoy this content, don’t worry, there will be much more to come. We’ve also come up with some pretty groovy t-shirts and a hoodie that are available for sale—linked below.

If you like what we’re doing, go ahead and grab a shirt or hoodie. You’ll look really cool wearing it, and you’ll be helping us get our name out there. Thanks!

For Us: Reflecting on the Journal's Creation

For Us: A Self Care Journal for Mamas is the first collaborative project that we, 1134 Press, have published. Between life’s responsibilities, Bri “Bam” Mobley and I worked diligently for over a year to create a special journal for mothers’ journey in self-care and love.

I am not a mother, but I know so many amazing women that are. Working on this project was a way for me show my gratitude to all those women who have helped shape me into the person that I am today. It takes a lot to raise children and mentor others. Taking time to replenish yourself mentally and spiritually is not just a practice for those who don’t have children, yet, we expect (demand, even) for moms to put their wants and needs last. As Mobley said, “How are you going to pour into your little one if you’re pouring from an empty cup?”

In early discussions about what For Us could be, the conversation always returned to the idea of a room. We wanted this journal to feel like a vibrant room filled with flora and fauna, affirmations, a safe space to question, forgive, and reflect. There are too many aspects in life where women, especially mothers, don’t have autonomy over their spaces, be it internal or external. For Us attempts to achieve just that—a room of your own to be as loud or quiet as you want.

As a person who has kept a journal since I was eight-years-old, I was surprised by the transformation that my personal journaling underwent while working on this project. Yes, For Uswas made for moms, but prompts such as, “Here is the tribe I can call on for help” and “What kind of woman do I want to be in the world,”struck a chord in me. It is our hope that For Us will do the same for you.

News at 1134

Hello there,

It’s been quite a while since our last blog post at 1134 Press. We’ve been pretty busy making books, though. We have some 1134 Comics to mail out, and we have an exciting new project set to release very soon. There will be posts about this coming up! In regard to this new release, I will just tease that there will indeed be a very unique new item in the currently empty “Journals” category of our store.

In other news: We’re super excited about the upcoming conclusion to 1134 Comix’ Pussies of Tomorrow. Look forward to a fifteen page, full comic-size final story arc coming this summer. It’s been a fun comic to write and draw but, all good things must come to an end. On the bright side, after Pussies of Tomorrow finishes a new comic will be starting up that we think you will really like.

That’s enough news for now—see you back here soon!
