Hi all!

I have just released my first zine - a collaboration with twenty up-and-coming illustrators called 'The Music One'.

A little more info;

'The concept of this zine is simple - take a handful of music-obsessed illustrators and designers and ask them to do a portrait of their favourite musician or band. Then get each contributor to write a few words about their favourite record by their chosen muse.

This was something of a dream project for me to compile as a self-confessed record nerd and illustrator.

Contributors;

Marcus Oakley
Lewis Heriz
Ben Javens
Lizzie Stewart
Henry St Leger
Jake Blanchard
Alex Jako
Darryl Norsen
Tom Fewings
Mark Oliver
Peter Locke
Dominic Dyson
James Fry
Stewart Easton
Joseph Blakey
Graeme Ross
Matthew Williams
Damon Unwin
Mat Pringle

The eclectic range of musicians covered include the likes of The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Francois de Roubaix, Will Oldham, Todd Rundgren, Raymond Scott, Bruce Springsteen, Vivian Stanshall, Porter Wagoner and John Zorn amongst others.

The zine is 40 pages, A5, grayscale and has a screen-printed cover. The initial run featuring Henry St Leger's portrait of Vivian Stanshall on the cover is limited to 150 copies coming in a variety of different colours.'


Email me if you would like to trade zines etc.

Thanks!

Mat

Issue 2 of "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are" is ready now. It's better than the first I reckon, more to read. I write about men thinking it's ok to grope women on a night out, my expereiences of counselling, having children or not.

It's half size, 20 pages, B&W.

£1 with SAE or better still trade for zines or other lovely things.

Not Lonely #3 is now available!

Issue 3 is about the fine line between fact and fiction, not throwing things away, being pestered by dodgy men on public transport, (somewhat comically) failing at interviews, insomnia, the reality check of life after university and alternative menstrual products. It's part-handwritten, part-typed and made in a cut-and-paste style with lots of pretty backgrounds and vintage images.

I love trades! Or the price is £1 UK / £1.50 Europe / £2 Elsewhere. Please contact me via my page on here or email not_lonely_zineATyahoo.co.uk if you'd like a copy.

The 2010 Eurovision Song Contest Finals Are On Tonight
Are you excited? I bet you aren't!

I have made a zine about the event, telling you who I think is terrible (most of them), and who is okay. If you give me an email (tomorrowboy, gmail) I'll send you a PDF of it, but here's a link to some jpgs you can at least look at. Maybe you can print them off and make your own copy? (It's formatted for A4 size.)

(And yes, I wrote most of this drunk.)

The day after the london zine symposium, I intend to get the bus from newcastle to the beach and sand dune system that runs in an almost continuous line up to scotland. i will camp on the beach, doodle and drink coffee away from the city (unless it rains). This will become my next zine (probably a mini zine), and i would like you to be a part of it by giving me a post address (uk only) that i can send a postcard to.

I will just take a photo of some element of your postcard and include that in the zine so your effort is minimal to say the least!

It might be a doodle of a puffin, or a moan about feeling lonely, but it will be from the dunes, and the sand, and the early morning birdprints and seals in the water.

You HAVE to tell me by sunday 6pm or i will actually be living on the beach and unable to see your address! email = oldglen at gmail.com
(Say hi if you're at the zine symposium too!)

Kerouac-inspired Zine calling for creatives of all discliplines along the theme of 'FREEDOM'.

Hi all, I really wanted to tell you all about my new Independent, Kerouac’s Dog ® it's is a brand-spanking new, independent quarterly set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1950s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.

I'd also LOVE to trade with anyone, as I like collecting all sorts myself.
