Hello. I’ve been making zines on and off for a few years now. I used to distribute randomly -- interleaving zines in books, taping them to the bottom of benches, leaving them on buses, etcetera. The first zine I made I printed up a dozen or so copies and slipped it into libraries around the city. (I always wanted this to be Step 1 of LIP (the Library Infiltration Project) but it was a dog-hot summer and I probably instead spent the whole season down and panting on the garden patio.)

Forthcoming are a zine combining an analysis of the metaphorical depth and pop-cultural super-connectivity of Namco arcade classic Pac-Man with an account of the life and strip club misdemeanours of NFL quarterback and Tenessee Titans No. 32 Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones; then after that I think some kind of zine about circus training, maybe taking the form of a very extensive and discursive glossary.

Nice to see all these zine people in one place. Will try and put some photos up sometime.
