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.)
