Hi there...

My name is Steven & I'm an art-a-holic. I'm 36 & still at it, making zines & shit...

"Hi, Steven"

I just stopped in to show y'all my latest work in progress... It's a three-man art zine going by the name of Namoustache. Participants include: Chad Moss (not yet in his 30s, but still has beaucoup de street cred), Steven Hughes Purkey (myself), & legend in the making, Sir Fang Ela (boasting 30 plus years of life, as well)...

We're currently at the cut & paste stage of the game & this sucker should be all done & printed by the end of December 2014, for sure. It will be put out under the zine making team name MC Sunflower Jones, which I do with my beautiful partner in crime, Ms. Deirdree Prudence (gorgeypie 30-something zine queen extraordinaire).
Really looking forward to completing this one...it'll have a red cover, white innards, & a black pocket made from construction paper (hidden inside will be a special bonus secret surprise!) You'll have to purchase the zine (or trade with me!) to see what's inside...

Check out our Etsy shoppe in about a week or so to buy a copy:  www.mcsUNFLOWERjONES.etsy.com

Thanks y'all for taking the time to read this post & I look forward to hearing from some of you for trades & shit! Email me at: MCSunflowerJones@ZinesAndShit.com

Thank you, zine freaks & print fanatics...art is whatever you can get away with!

Just completed the latest issue of the Ken Chronicles (#33): 32 digest-sized pages (including covers). It features non-fiction & photos about side jobs I've worked over the years; tabling at Pete's Candy Store Mini Zine Fest; things that break or go wrong around the house; plus some zine reviews and random thoughts.

On its way to my regular trading partners and available to all for $3 (pp to USA) or possible trade (what have to got?)

It's....It's....It's a zine! A zine is born! 'Different Shades of Normal #3 presents:

The rewind and fast-forward edition.' This perzine spans 21 years of writing. It includes failed relationships, depression, self-destruction, grief, self-care, etc. This perzine is typed and is 38 pages. Hurry and get it soon before it goes beddy-bye!

hey everyone! i just discovered this group and was pretty thrilled to find so many old fogies out there! i'm 32, and i started making zines 7 years ago. i just re-released a zine and a poetry chapbook, and i'm working on Minutiae No. 4, my perzine. You can check out all my zines here: www.sprouthead.etsy.com

I just re-released my mini-zine "Genius (Love)" and my poetry chapbook "non sense" with new covers. previously they'd been out of circulation for a few years!

Oops! almost forgot to post my latest issue on this site. My Ken Chronicles (#31, May, 2014), was released just in time for the Brooklyn Zine Fest where I had a great time meeting some fine folks. Now available for $3 (postpaid to USA) or trade (what have you got?), it's 24 digest-sized pages (plus cover wrap) of non-fiction stories, photography, reviews, and other assorted oddities.

Hi, I am finally not as busy to be more active on this site. I was happy to see this group. :) I am 31, have a 12 year old girl, and still make/read zines! <3

Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3

The Latest issue of the Ken Chronicles is finished (#30, Feb., 2014) and ready for mailing. It's digest-size, 24-pages, and contains a piece on choosing a portable iPod speaker dock; some memories of past jobs I suffered through; a trip to Baltimore/Annapolis; some reviews of zines, a book and film; lots of photos; and some random thoughts. On its way to my regular trading partners and available for $3, postpaid, to the USA; always interested in trades (what have you got?).
