Zine illustrators - this is something for you.
This time I'm going to look at the revolution in art and talk about Stuckism.
Stuckism is an international art movement started in Britain in 1999 by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson. It strongely opposes the abuses of modern art. The group's ideas sounded much like my own and I wanted to contact them.
I did. I suggested some of my own work protesting modern art abuses, and I got a couple… Continue

Tukru and I made a split zine across the ocean!
Telegram Ma'am #18 is a love letter to my bike, a beautiful vintage cruiser. There are notes on anxiety and depression as well, being a weird girl in a small town, going to zine gatherings, and adventures with my local friends. I write about learning how to ride my bike again after the snow melted, late-night bike rides, hanging out at the library, and challenging myself to communicate more assertively.
Your Pretty Face Is… Continue

BRAINSCAN 25-This zine has been five start and stop years in the making. I finally finished it in October of 2009 at the Anchor Archive zine residency in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Call for Entries: COMING CLEAN (will be the theme of SYNDICATE PRODUCT #15)
Looking for stories AND comics.
After zines about the laundry (Laundry Basket), grocery shopping (12 Items or Less), and cooking (Potluck), this was inevitable. The next issue of SYNDICATE PRODUCT is all about cleaning... house cleaning, washing the car, even picking up the yard debris. (However, it's NOT about laundry, as that's already been done. It's also not about packratting, as that's also… Continue

The CD is now officially out and will be posted back up on the musea.us website within a week or two for anyone anywhere to hear it. For those who want a CD with a collectible cover etc., you can get a copy from me. (I'll be glad to sign it if requested).

November's threefold ceremonies of death have declared our ritual goodbyes to summer. Winter is arriving and soon it will be time to celebrate it. Town is getting busier at night - and bloody scary. Each small local gig feels snug and warm, a cave of drink and music in which, in little clusters of friendly strangers, we can shut out the cold black sky. Some of us will play guitar and share some songs. Others will drink, in honour of king winter.
On the no.12 bus, I see… Continue

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my zine documentary so far! The responses have been fabulous, and I can't wait to put together the first issue to send out to everyone. Here's the deal. I have some funding to put a zine together about why zines are important to folks, about our creative process making them, and the connections we make through making and sharing them. My plan is to do a series of issues over the next year and once I have a good number of issues, to bind them somehow as a… Continue
