I'm so sorry! I've been super busy with work and preparing for NaNoWriMo! I can't freaking believe it!

I know that there were two pre-orders that I received in the mail weeks ago for Darling Disaster No. 1. FINALLY I got the damn thing copied! I'll be sending out those two orders tomorrow as I'm trying to get other things ready and go to work later today.

I would like everyone to know that a page went missing. The morning that I took everything to copy, my original decided… Continue

Word: a Celebration of font and text exhibit

So, I tired to post this in the events section and it wouldn't work!

I was asked to take part in this exhibit, which is awesome! I even had to write an artist statement and stuff. It is at the Interstate Firehouse Culture Center that is 3 blocks away from my house. I made a giant collage of images from Brainscan and I have two shelves of my zines.... all of the zines I have printed since 2003.

Other pieces include artist books, posters by various Portland printers, zine… Continue

.: Act Like U Know Emm

Q&A with Julio Rölle of 44flavours {printed in Art Bureau 15}

Why 44flavours and not 66, 69 or 77?

The name comes from a Brooklyn ice cream van you see all over the hood during the summer, which Sebastian Bagge, who is my partner in crime, saw in a film. And no joke—it really was called 44flavours. The name is perfect because when we decided to start a magazine, that was exactly what…

Eight-Stone Press Publishes SMILE HON No. 10

BALTIMORE – Rented firearms, bocce balls and stolen meat are but a few of the chunks that bob to the surface of Charm City’s stew in Smile, Hon, You’re in Baltimore! No. 10, the latest installment of the ongoing submission-based zine published by Eight-Stone Press.

In this issue, Siobhan Fitzpatrick chases rats (as well as anything else that might be lurking in the cracks of Pigtown); J. Gavin Heck talks a friend down… Continue

what size to make?

I am toiling over 1/4 sized and 1/2 sized for Introvert #6. I think 1/2 sized is winning.


It'll probably end up being a lot about my nephew passing away from SIDS last year. I think i am finally ready to put it all out there.

We Make Zines is amazing

My boyfriend is sick of hearing this, so I thought I would do a blog post about it. I am constantly reminded of how amazing this site has become because of all of you and how glad I am I started it.

Sometimes I get the time to really pop around from one persons page to another and seeing all the comments is so great. There are so many conversations going on here. So many little worlds. People seem to really be connecting and re-connecting. I feel such warmth for you all and for zine… Continue

warm bed, old zines, zine art show, IPRC, and the Portland Zine Symposium Planning...

I'm currently in my bed in my cold room with my laptop under a fake down comforter that is fantastically warm and making me not want to get out of bed into the rest of the frigid house. You see, apparently our house has been entered into some sort of contest to see who can hold out from turning their heat on the longest. I'm usually the only one here during the day I just close my self in the office and wear my new hat with ear flaps to stay warn. I stay even warmer on days where I have coffee… Continue

Calendar Girl 6 is in the Works!

Despite being up to my ass in alligators this weekend, I have taken up work on CG 6. It is going to be about my move to Ottawa, starting university and other such things. It is going to look a little plain because I didn't bring all of my zine stuff with me when I moved because I didn't have enough space. It should be good. I have high hopes for it.

'Zine Archives

Not gonna lie, pasting s/medium text as JPEG is one thing but making it legible for the web is something else.

Anyhoo, I spent last weekend taking the best pages from my 'zine GENEROUS and categorizing accordingly.

My website is http://www.crazations.com and my Etsy link on the homepage.

Full versions are about 10 pages and sell for $2 but will consider trade from fellow members!

Tootin´ my own horn (or "Now that´s a good review!")

I just received the new issue (#6) of Jason Rodger´s zine review zine "Media Junky" & listen to this kick ass review of my humble lil´ zine "Going Postal!":

"A fabulous work. This zine is devoted to mail art & zines, as social phenomena. This looks at the personal & political relevance of alternative communications. There is no lack of theory, nor the relevance of personal experiences. The material maintains a critical stance, not only covering positive aspects. Articles… Continue

Mini-Comic Anthology Brings Gimmick Back

Coming straight out of left field like a Tampa Bay Ray, Candy or Medicine Volume Five harks back to the Golden Age of comics. You might remember KISS #1 from 1977, in which the band members’ blood was mixed in with red ink used to print the comic. Or for you youngins, Malibu Comics’ Protectors #5 with the first, and thankfully only, forcebeam hole. And those of you who prefer an indie flavor and had your ear to the ground in ’93 might remember… Continue
