Me & Zines:
I don't know for sure how everyone does their zines (…and I am sure that there Continue

Now I have lead a relatively sheltered Zine existence…
And by that I mean I have been making things that fall under the wide world of Zine goodness for a long while… I just haven't been involved in the community so to speak.
As of late I have been very drawn into the fold as it were.
I have found that the more Zinesters I encounter the more friendly responses and support I get.
So I naturally seemed to gravitate towards this community.
I believe the internal… Continue

We STILL had no correct answers. For more on "OK", the big world…

My poor distro site cannot be updated at this time... though you can order as much as you want that is on it currently! It's still running! :) - http://www.clickclackdistro.com
We had a computer crash and lost Dreamweaver and are having trouble with the reinstallation.
Hopefully it'll be fixed soon and i can update and upload all of the new zines i have waiting in the wings!

After doing a little bit of searching online, I discovered that, not only does my home town (Brisbane, Aus) have a zine scene, we have our own zine library run by the council!
You can use the photocopiers (not sure how much it costs just yet) and resources to create your zine, and then you can just add it to the library for the world to see!
If you live in Brisbane, don't hesitate to become my friend! I'm looking for other zinesters to share this… Continue

Well I'm trying to find the time / inspiration to get my first zine off the ground. It's going to be a short illustrated story, about a girl who is born with pencils instead of hands.
First images are coming soon.
Also, I'm looking to compile a few zines with my artwork and writings, but I feel strange and a little self absorbed doing something like that. Anyone got any ideas for themes?

just finished mélange #2
. can't believe how much energy i've put into this one. it's nothing like what i pictured when i first started, and i'm tickled by what this might say about how the "creative process" works. thinking about where my head has been while making it is making me feel very tired. gonna sit on it for a bit, clear my mind. hope to have it in print and circulating in a couple of… Continue

Aaahhh…the smell of fresh

printed paper…is there anything

Oh man, am I glad that I finally finished Issue 4. The line art could have been better, but it was fun playing around with some new programs like MyPaint and Inkscape. Eliza's cover is thirty different kinds of AWESOME.
I think I might take a hiatus from Carpe Noctem for a bit, to focus on finishing Adventures In Living.

This month is panning out to be fairly epic; we're adding almost 20 new titles and restocking 15 we've been out of for a while...possibly testing the distro/personal space ratio, we'll see. I am waiting until everything has arrived to send out this month's newsletter, but I thought I'd give a what's new, so far, in the zine department.
After months of being out of stock, we just got more of one of my favorite zines, Funwater Awesome. All our great, #2 is my favorite.… Continue
