the carbon based mistake


the carbon based mistake was created 03.30.75 by marc calvary and takes the form of zines & books & photography & writing & blasphemy & art & design.

Besides the main project, a series of books and zines under the umbrella name of the carbon based mistake, current side projects include the Art Exchange Program, an annual zine contest awarding grant money and prizes in an attempt to encourage others to continue to make art, and a pin-up style adults-only photography and design project called cherrypepper.

Sad Libs Found!

Posted on November 15, 2011 at 10:54am 0 Comments

I found 50 copies of an old zine I did years ago called Sad Libs. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to reprint them because I have no access to the machines I once did, so I'm very glad to have found these. It's nice to be able to offer them to anyone that might want to have a copy. sad-libs

New Zines! New Website!

I've redesigned my site using wordpress to simplify updating and posting. And it's really invigorated me, I've done 2 new zines, plus a bunch of little extras, and I'm putting the 3rd zine together now. Please check it out, let me know what you think... www.thecarbonbasedmistake.com and I'll put some samples on here as well.
