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… Continue

I haven't finished my second zine which seems to be all art at this point. But it has been sitting at a place now that feels stuck. I figure that at some point more pictures will come so that I can finish it.
My third zine which I'm fumbling around for a collective title for at the moment is just getting started. It feels like this zine is about finally saying something about all the things that I have wanted to say but couldn't figure out how.
I don't know if it will… Continue

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:http://www.artforglobaljustice.org/exhibits/excess/excess.html
