Multnomah County Library is the best!!

So, I was pleasantly surprise when I went to my local library-- Multnomah county's Hollywood branch-- and found that they have started a zine exchange! Now, not only do they carry zines in many branches and offer a bunch of great zine info online, but they also facilitate zine trades!! They had a box below the zine shelf full of zines for trade on the honor system, like many book-borrowing… Continue

Need Submissions For Upcoming Issue of GENEROUS

Due to a death in my family and starting classes, I've had to delay the normal functions of GENEROUS. The Spring/Summer issue is going to have some empahsis on health but since this is the first time I'm going with a theme, other topics are gladly welcomed!



If you haven't read my previous posts, here's a briefing.



GENEROUS is a women-themed 'zine with a humorous yet informative edge. We poke fun at pop culture instead of being a victim of here-today, gone-tomorrow… Continue

The annoyance of being idle

Unemployment, a state of atrophy that rots the mind and depresses the soul. OK so I may be being a tad melodramatic but anyone who has been unemployed for a long stretch during this current financial F**k up knows that living off government benefits is no where near as much fun as an episode of Shameless may suggest. The constant searching for any scrap of the paid work, the feeling of uselessness and lethargy and, if like me you finished your degree last year, an overpowering sense of… Continue

Before this week's message, here is a link to my 60th video.

It is a very very short one minute video - a poem video! on youtube.

RIOT GRRRL MANIFESTO

BECAUSE us girls crave records and books and fanzines that speak to US that WE feel included in and can understand in our own ways.



BECAUSE we wanna make it easier for girls to see/hear each other's work so that we can share strategies and criticize-applaud each other.



BECAUSE we must take over the means of production in order to create our own moanings.



BECAUSE viewing our work as being connected to our girlfriends-politics-real lives is essential if we are… Continue

San Francisco & Oakland peeps: zine making workshop results

Here are arm wrestling experiments that mutated into singing and dancing adventures from the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco jams as well as the Rock Paper Scissors Zine Workshops. The activity of making comics is a loner's world, and collaborations don't occur so often. It's a joy to be able to jam with other artists when the opportunity arises much the same way musicians jam.

I took an excellent and highly recommended animation…

zine history blog...kind of

I spent most of my freetime for the past month scanning old zines of mine and posting the pics on my blog. sddzine.blogspot.com its a personal history of my experience writing and reading zines. It was fun digging into my old boxes of mail, re-reading zines I hadn't read in 10 years (time goes by so goddamn fast) and thinking about how easy it is to loose touch with people. Anyway, if your interested check it out.

Check out the pics, I taught our first workshop [non toxic prontoplate printmaking] and we all created works for the zine!…

Issue #1 theme

I was thinking today that I should really have a set theme to keep me focussed on the zine as i have so many other things going on right now in the real world.



So........The theme will be about following your dreams as this last year I've just returned to art college and it's been a struggle to juggle everything (ooo stuggle to juggle.....may use that phrase!) Also I would be good for anyone that is stuck in a mundane job like I am and wants to do something different. So I guess… Continue

bad knitter

I like knitting, but I'm really bad at it.........

........what would make it really fun, would be a stich 'n' bitch group here in Leeds.

So, if there are any keen knitteratti out there, beginners or pro's - get in touch and we should start a weekly meet in a coffee shop or maybe the common place?

All the zines I've ever made...

I know that I've made 121 because I photocopied them all again for the exhibition "Avoiding Myth and Message: Australian Artists and the Literary World", which is currently on at the MCA, Sydney.
If you do go along, do write me a postcard - there is a shiny red postbox and a stack of blank cards for this purpose. Keep the numbers of messages from primary school kids, and teenagers quoting the Mighty Boosh down, write to me!
The exhibition's on til the 12th of July.
