And to this end we've just started…

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!



CHECK IT OUT.



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

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.

p.s.

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…
