After one year of hard work, our project has come to a close! We’re pleased to share the digital version of our book and its exclusive digital downloads with you for free.If you’d like to support our work, please consider making a donation to our selected charity! We also encourage you to cheer on all our wonderful artists and writers, who you can find below.


Twenty-seven artists. Six writers. One collection.Welcome to the Blue Side Collection, a fanbook dedicated to j-hope and in celebration of his song, Blue Side.This project will consist of artwork and written pieces inspired by the song. Creators may reference other themes, but the overarching motif will reference Blue Side.In order to create a project as inclusive as possible for all j-hope fans, all final pieces will be SFW (safe for work). Creations will be G-rated for general audiences, and will exclude any romantic ships or RPS.Please note that this project is a collection of works and will not be opening “applications” as in most zine projects. We’re simply a group of creators getting together to make a collection of works because we love Blue Side and j-hope! There will be an opportunity to purchase the fanbook in January and February of 2022, and additional opportunities to explore the theme with us!We hope you will look forward to supporting the fanbook and our creative team—and, most importantly, j-hope and Blue Side
