All about Attack!!!! (brand new issue out today)

Attack!!!! is a zine I make in the UK which is made up of new creative work - meaning writing, artwork and music (so far - I'm hoping someone will produce a film or some choreography or a brand new recipe for us sometime).

Every issue is themed and at the moment the theme for each successive issue is a different piece of work from issue 5.

I'm very happy to say that issue 10 is out today. This is a picture of it from the front:…

.: Wallspankers Sticker-Zine

by MATT W. MOORE {printed in Art Bureau 14}

Wallspankers was created in April of 2006. It had been an idea of mine for years, but I wasn’t sure how to turn it into a reality. I saw the project as a printed zine on sticker paper and being able to distribute it around the world. My community of friends within the art, design and graffiti circle, is constantly growing. I want to spread their work as far as I…

Worry Stone #1: a zine about diabetes

Excerpt (from intro):

As I've gotten older, I have developed an increasing number of anxieties. Life isn't simple anymore. I have marriage-like relationship with a diabetic man. We have a young child. I am a homeowner. I have a career. I have debt.

I have plenty of things to worry about.

So I started a new zine to help me explore some of my sources of worry. Worry Stone #1 focuses on my partner's diabetes. I talk about what diabetes does to the body, the… Continue

The struggle doesnt end with the visual art. Please pass the word about this video and the issue of youth violence in SF! Its… Continue

music update

I spent the day cleaning my room including all my clothes bedding and pillows! i went through and looked at all my zines I got from the Portland zine Symposium that I haven't read yet and then I had my twice a year leg shave. I don't why I shave twice a year, I just do.

So, in the last post I mentioned Paul's new music project and recording in my old bedroom, well one of them anyway.. well one of his projects as well as one of my old bedrooms too. Paul is writing an audio soundtrack… Continue

like a shot of oxygen

I just got my most recent order from Paper Trail Distro in the mail, and spent yesterday feeling under the weather but curled up under an afghan reading zines. Zines like "Love Letters to Monsters", "Glossolalia 11", and "Keep Loving Keep Fighting 8" make me feel so acutely the positive charge of really good writing.

Often with zines, I feel sort of left out if the zinester is too strident about living punk or sXe or politically radical. I understand that one of the most important… Continue

More Brainscan 23!

I'm getting some more copies of brainscan 23 back from the printer today... with all the errors fixed. Seriously, I threw it together the day before the zine symposium while I was literally in a fever haze. I got sick that night and couldn't go to the reading. My fever broke around midnight and I was sort of ok for the symposium but my zine pages were jumbled and I got 150 copies instead of 50. But, now there is a better intro and the pages are in the right place. good for me. You can always… Continue

.: Katy Horan .: Gocco Good Times


Gocco user and enthusiast {printed in Art Bureau 10}

Have you ever been sitting in your apartment-studio and said to yourself, “You know, I really wish I had a readily available means of creating hand-printed paper goods, t-shirts and packaging for my small, yet promising craft business, but I don’t have the space or know-how for setting up a screen-print studio, and rubber stamps are for scrap-booking housewives?” Wouldn’t it be…

Hurricane Ike Spares Austin, Texas

I have heard of at least a couple of powerful-in-number and powerful-in-intention groups doing "mass consciousness" intentions to lessen the destruction of Hurricane Ike. One of them was George Noory and his Coast to Coast AM radio audience, his show being the most-listened-to national radio show during the graveyard shift (on from midnight to 4:00 a.m. Central time and also through live streaming for members of the coasttocoastam.com website). After such a HUGE threat as Ike, this is my only… Continue
