lately life has been more about organizing the studio (again. it's a mess. not just any mess. it's epic.). beyond that, i've been tossing around a few new zine ideas in my head--all inclusive sorts of things that are like perzine meets tutorial meets art zine meets poetical meander. honestly, keeping up with a bunch of different zine topics is just too much darn work right now. i will, of course, continue to keep Fat Girl

i just finished a new issue of my zine, "motor city kitty" tonight! i know that seems really close to the release of #11, but that one was half-done in july, the second half in october and i just now printed it. though i finished #12 tonight, it probably won't get printed until mid-january due to my current financial status (unless i figure out the copy trick on campus!)
those participating in the mini zine folks swap will receive the first copies, as i made it for the swap. and… Continue

it took me about a month after completing motor city kitty #11 to finally go make copies of it. things have just been so busy. i don't know why i get so ambitious about zines when i know i'm not always gonna have the time to devote to them (probably because zines are true love.)
i know i owe some people trades, or zines for subscribers. here's the list of people i know i owe zines to. if you're not on it but believe you should be, let me know. sometimes i lose track of envelopes and… Continue

Just completed my first zine 'transmission'. It doesn't really have a theme as the zine in itself is an experiment. I threw in some of my collage and a cartoon in between a poem and a story.
Christmas actually encouraged me to complete it. My friend has no idea what zines are. I tried to explain and directed her to this site, but I think she needs to see an actual zine. So I went in search of some in Hamilton.
Only found one about sexual abuse and violent relationships, Hamilton… Continue

Lady With a Buzzsaw (I know it's supposed to be two words, but I like them better together) is finally printed and ready to go! I am very excited! It may not be the best zine in the world, but I still feel accomplished. 20 pages. I am still getting used to all of this zine stuff, so some of the black and white photos came out a bit harsh. Oh well!

-A frightening dream I had

From an Etsy buyer:
Interesting work. I lean towards the second issue: I like the smaller
size and the greater contrast of dark and light in the pictures - I think the greater contrast allows the viewer/reader more access to the book.
Lets see, one of my favorite
pictures is in the first book - the one where you wrote: When dealing with nature....
very strong image. I like Zines that have strength of vision - ones that reach
some truth… Continue

For those who are familiar (and the myriad of those who are not), the eleventh issue of the art-damaged midwestern 'zine FreezerBurn shall be out before X-Mas.
Forget online networking.
This issue shall not appear in any form in the HTML-realm; the only way to experience its caustic xeroxed strangeness is to contact its creator firectly.

A few months ago I posted that I was closing down my zine library and that I was selling the zines from my collection (for postage only!) to other zine libraries. Well every flat rate envelope and box that I packed was purchased! Last weekl my wonderful friend from Philly sent me three boxes slammed full of zines from the physical library location that I ran there two years ago so I am back to square one with lots of zines for any zine libraries that may be interested.

This is a neat idea for a podcast. Hannah Neurotica brings you a regular round up of interviews with zinesters, guest readings from zines and news and announcements from the worldwide zine community. This whole podcast has got the feel of a zine – slick it ain’t, but that’s a big part of its charm. Hannah’s interview style is chatty and natural and because of this rather than despite it, she gets some really interesting answers from interviewees. And this is no ego trip; there’s a real… Continue
