Life, Death, Love & All of the Above

I just printed my first zine in over 6 years last night. If any of you want to buy a copy, get in touch!








Life, Death, Love & All of the Above is my first zine in over 6 years. A year and a half in the making, I began writing a series of vignettes in the summer of 2009 as I was falling in love with my boyfriend. That winter he was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia and I kept on writing. The latter portion…

the problem with infozines (so it seems) and the diy dilemma

i've recently been picked up by the always fabulous, ms valerie park zine distro and will shortly be sending off 10 copies to bird in the hand distro, and a 8 copies to mimizine distro (all for trade, which i love!), so needless to say, i'm pleased with the response to my zine so far.



however, i've recently been informed by another distro that they will not be carrying my work because it is health related and gives health related information. i'm ok with this and i'm not complaining… Continue

Zine Reviews : Not Lonely Issues 2, 3, & 4

I recently had the privilege to get a hold of the latest 3 issues of Hannah’s perzine Not Lonely (issues 2, 3, & 4) and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I knew after reading issue 2 that this was likely to go on my list of all time favorites and the next two issues didn’t disappoint.



Overall, Not Lonely is a very cute zine done in cut & paste style using a mixture of type and hand writing along with collage and hand drawings to create a very whimsical and personal… Continue

waiting is the hardest part....

so right now i'm waiting on a bunch of distros to get back to me regarding carrying my zine, and i'm waiting on a bunch of people, libraries and distros to email me back regarding trades, cataloging, and distribution.

 

i know that the mail can take a while, and then once they're finally recieved it takes a while for some people to get back to you cuz they have other stuff piling up around them and are a bit too busy right now to respond.

i'm not complaining. i get that…

Insomnia zine + Controversy

 

This is a preview page from the NEW zine I am working on on the subject of Insomnia!! Fun times!

I figured Id do something a little less "riske" so that I could reach broader audiances. Iv been having a string of rejections and controversy of late which is really rather frustrating as an artist. Of course, iv been wanting to do an Insomnia piece for a…

David McGhee Box Office Concert Photo (Musea E-mail Club #520)

Musea Readers,

December 28th of last year, photographer David McGhee came out to photograph me playing my, world's only,  Box Office Concerts  at the Inwood Theater.
I had admired David's photography through Facebook, and invited him to take photos. He took a LOT of digital shots from every angle. I have seen a few, and each one I like more than the last. The last one I've seen is this one.  I love it. See what you think.…

Get Fit For The Pit #1 - Submission Call repost

Extending the deadline a bit....

 

All too often the punk scene seems to look down on athletics and sports of all kinds. I happen to regret a lot of my past shunning of sports and fitness for the sake of it not being “punk rock.” In 2009 i started running and fell in love with it. (After I quit what could have been a pretty good softball career at age 15 because I was too cool.) It still feels somewhat awkward to have one foot in the running community and the other in the punk…

Poems Written in Late December 2010

Poems Written in late December 2010

POEMS
1.
[This is also notable for me for being my 7,700 poem ]
The flayed swaying rope
dangling from the tower
no longer tolls a bell.
Instead at night
there's a low low fluttering
from the wings of bats.
2.
"The Glittering And Vast
Hall of Fate"
said the sign
on the shiny brass door.
I expected…

Boycott Microcosm, Support Survivors

I have started a zine blog (http://sarahtearex.wordpress.com/) where I originally posted this but as a part of my protest, I wanted to spread the word to the We Make Zines community, so here it is...

 

In my last post I was excitedly nattering about all the zine happenings in my life. Among these was hearing from Microcosm that they wanted to distro a zine of mine. Somehow the background on the founder and collective member Joe…

The League of Evilness

In addition to my zine Triumph I'm wanting to put together a comic but I'm not too confident in doing so having not done one before. Having been inspired and encouraged by a couple of very creative artists last year, I'm going to set myself a challenge for 2011 and put together a comic about a group of evil do-gooders. The only trouble is though, like any New Year's resolutions they get harder to keep as the year progresses so I'm setting up a League of Evilness newsletter which I will…
