a place for zinesters - writers and readers
EAST VILLAGE INKY No. 53 if finally out in the world!
This issue we experimented with turning the self placed choke chain into a 3-panel-a-day noose. The material proved a little too fertile for comfort. Enjoy our all-comics format!
You can get it on Etsy.
You can throw caution to the wind and subscribe.
You can holler to me via email.
Just so long as you keep daring to be heinie.

This is my first ever zine!
It's about 25 full-sized, black and white pages.
This is a zine about my eating disorder recovery. It focuses mostly on my group-based treatment in 2009-2010. It consists mostly of information handouts given to me by therapists and dieticians in the program, as well as some collage.
There are some very brief mentions of weight, but nothing in the double digits. No calorie counts. The major emphasis is nutrition and cognitive behavioral skills and exercises.
I do not profit from the sale of this zine. I charge for the cost of printing and shipping.
Time IV is out before III. IV documents my time volunteering as a sorter at a zine library in the early 2000s, the reason (a person) why I wrote a zine in 2001 and haven’t written one until this year, etc. 28 pages, 8¼ × 11½”, /13.
E-mail, message, or tumblr for a copy. Thanks! A.
PILTDOWNLAD #8.5 - The Cult of Teddy Ruxpin
“The Cult of Teddy Ruxpin” is the story of how I lost religion, discovered punk and made true friends after moving to a small town in Alabama. It is a story of teenage rebellion, resisting high school conformity and subverting the dominant paradigm. It’s about how a seed was planted in fertile soil, a seed that continues to mature to this day.
40 pages . typewritten text . quarter size
ALSO, I apologize if I've promised anyone a trade and didn't send one. Please let me know! I am horribly unorganized, so I may have missed you in my last mailout. I try to keep track of this stuff, but the ole noggin ain't what it used to be...
Just got my first zine printed! It's called Eating Trash and Loving It: A zine on the pleasures of eating cheap and living well. The main chapter focuses on dumpster diving, plus a tips chapter on how to eat well but cheap and a chapter on traveling with tricky diets.

The October ish of The Last Word was delayed by an Illness Log-justifying plague, but now it's pub at long last! Best all, The Last Word is now FREE! Just like it was for its first 20 years!
The latest ish talks about...

I draw monsters who don't know they're monsters.
These two Art Zines are full of my hand-drawn and digitally finished originals: Uncle J's Monsters. I've been drawing Monsters most week days since November 2009 --- I've created over 1000 creatures so far.
The red, textured, card stock covered one has 30+ highlights from 2012, plus a 20+ monster collage in the centerfold. Offset printed, gray scale images on 36 cream-colored pages. The yellow, smooth, card stock covered edition contains 16 guys from January through September 2013. This version offers "color imagination space" Monsters; fill them in yourself, if you'd like. Ink jet printed on 16 bright white pages. Each is staple bound.
Both are available in my Etsy shop:
