a place for zinesters - writers and readers

April 2010 Blog Posts (59)

Finished the zine section of my site.

Since quitting my job in February, I have really begun to miss web design and development. There is just something so appealing to me about spending 8 hours staring at HTML, CSS and jQuery.

That said, I spent this morning and afternoon adding a zine section to my portfolio site. I think it looks pretty good!


Waiting for my printing contact to come back so I can make copies of Delusion #2. I'm waffling between… Continue

I have a new zine that I've made for Burning Man participants. It's called SLAM and it was my Burning Man project from last year. To get a copy, mail me a letter telling me about your past Burning Man experience(s).

call for submissions: letters to whom?

i have this habit of writing letters as a stress reliever. i never really send them and i often end up losong them or leaving them in random places.

and i've been thinking of making it into a project of sorts. send in your letters and I'll compile them into a zine.

Everyone who contributes will get a copy.


sorry i cant really think right now. i got out of a 13-hour shift at 8 and havent slept since.

My Notebook Project

I’ve been wanting to try out an idea thats been brewing in my head for a while now. It involves notebooks, lots of notebooks and hopefully many creative individuals. I'm not sure how I'm going to present the results but I like the idea of making them into a zine.

I’m a massive notebook fan and I’ve even made some pretty interesting books in the past myself too. Recently I’ve made a pile of matchbook notebooks and its these that I would like to send out to people who…

The next zine

I haven't finished my second zine which seems to be all art at this point. But it has been sitting at a place now that feels stuck. I figure that at some point more pictures will come so that I can finish it.

My third zine which I'm fumbling around for a collective title for at the moment is just getting started. It feels like this zine is about finally saying something about all the things that I have wanted to say but couldn't figure out how.

I don't know if it will…
