Junk Drawer zines in an environmental themed art show

A couple of my Junk Drawer zines are currently in an art exhibit about mass consumption and the environment. It's taking place at AE Studios LIC, in Queens, New York. If you can't make it to the show, you can still see most of the artwork on the site for Art for Global Justice, which is the group that organized it:
