Just finished my first zine in EIGHT YEARS!!! Been working on this for months and am very happy with how it turned out, so I hope you'll all give it a look. (Scrambling to finish another two before the Brooklyn Zine Fest on 4/26, so expect me to post about those shortly.)

Here's the description from Etsy....

Debut issue! Eight essays on various films and on film, filmmaking, and art in general. Features original illustrations as well as film stills.

I started Some Notes on Film as a way of encouraging myself to articulate my free floating thoughts about the films I watch. Instead of writing reviews, I try burrowing into specifics: particular themes, motifs, aesthetic choices. I’m writing from the perspective of a filmmaker, and so the observations I make are usually somehow related to me thinking through my own practice.

Topics for this issue include:
- Steve Martin's goofy tenderness in The Jerk
- Josh Safdie's microbudget indie The Pleasure of Being Robbed (as seen on the cover)
- Brian Eno's idea of art as a "trigger for experience" (and why I don't like it)
- Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye and Renaissance painter Pieter Bruegel
- Ain't Them Bodies Saints compared to Terrence Malick's Badlands
- Billy Wilder's The Apartment and physicality in screenwriting
- the difficulty of portraying digital life in movies
- plus a lengthy intro essay on the differences between zines and blogs

Half-sized
56 pages
Black and white
Card-stock cover
Saddle-stitched (stapled)

You can pick up a copy for $4.25 on my Etsy shop.

My latest 8.5 X 11 b&w comic zine, "Hello/Adios" is available on my Etsy shop for $6 + shipping. 

Hand-printed front/back covers (comes in blue/yellow/orange).

(With tales of tears, joy and redemption in between. )

Hello. I am making the call for content related to the Northeast. I am definins "the northeast" as the area roughly Asheville to Toronto, To Gaspe and Newfoundland, back to Asheville. We have an amazing area to inspire creative energy. Let's talk about our trees, rivers, hills, old houses, villages and anything else we've found indelible in the northeastern conscience.
