Best Zine Fair Ever

The Museum of Contemporary Art zine fair was on yesterday, and from start to finish I left my table only twice, once to deliver some zines to another table, once to go to the toilet and get a coffee. Sorry, amazing new zinester whose work I missed out on - I was too busy to buy your zine.

In typical Rigozzi fashion, I had drastically underestimated the amount of zines I would need, thinking that their exorbitant price tag would turn people away. So I had to break out the stack of… Continue

He wandered thru the wastelands, a ragged form staggering along. However long he had been out here, he did not know. It seemed forever. The need to go on overwhelmed him. His mind thought of nothing else than what lay ahead unseen, his goal, his reason to keep going. He never turned to look behind him. The further he got away from where he had left, the better.

Oh, but the expanse of the land!

It went on and on in every direction he could see.

Barren, except for the occasional… Continue

"Anarchism, Self-publishing, and the Anti-Sleep League at Philadelphia: A memoir" by Robert P. Helms from "Going Postal!" #1

Anarchism, Self-publishing, and the Anti-Sleep League at Philadelphia: A memoir by Robert P. Helms from "Going Postal!" #1

When I remember my early years of involvement in anarchism, a wide range of images and feelings wander through my mind and across my skin. Starting in the summer of 1989, I started to explore the idea in places other than library stacks, mostly in Philadelphia. Between 1991 and around 2000, the circle to which I belonged maintained a capacity to publish… Continue

Cool review

I'm glowing (if not downright blushing) just at the minute after an absolutely awesome review of my weaving zines by Diane Gilleland over at the Crafty Pod - http://www.craftypod.com/2009/05/21/ooooh-weaving-zines/. I've not got anything else to say about it; it was just very nice to wake up to!

Man it's been awhile...

I thought I'd deleted my old Ning account months ago, but apparently it's still valid. Good thing, I guess.

I have a main blog, and try to keep the off-shoot to a minimum, so here I'll just stick to the occasional zine-related stuff.

After finishing issue 3 of Carpe Noctem (no, not that Carpe Noctem), I've started sending it out for reviews. I'm going to try to get submissions for issue 4 and have that… Continue

recognition in the f[A]rtfield

As my work is displayed more and more across this city and via hear-say and say-hear, people are showing interest to the point of purchase &/or commision of interviews or trade and wearing patches.

The other week at Mia’s (local bar), this guy Kevin recognized me from my art show from the prior month at Tacos Locos and mentioned his interest in my art for an album cover. I have yet to hear his work, but am thoroughly interested in such a project. The idea of…

all work and no play


It's been such a busy couple of weeks for me lately at work that i haven't had much time to do anything creative! it's such a pain having to work full time whilst doing a college course, prepping for an exhibition and finishing this first zine, but i guess i have to pay my bills!

Apart from the stress and lack of sleep I'm feeling pretty positive and happy :)

Now i'm focussing on college and this zine which luckily my tutors have said i can use it as one… Continue
