It’s been a while since my last updates, so you’re in for a real treat. The last several months have been amazing! I had been screen-printing (on clothing and fabric patches) a ton and ran into an old friend who was interested in selling them at her new shop. Laurel’s shop, U.T.O.P.I.A., just opened july 3rd 2oo9 in downtown Flagstaff. Grand Opening turned out great and the fabric prints seemed to sell dang well. Everything in the shop was made in the Americas and at least… Continue

Reviews for 398#10.
Review from Zine World #28
Hell yeah, a collection of original short-short stories by Elizabeth J. M. W. that are great. While not as ethereal and crafted as Patricia McKillip's novels, these stories brought fantasy to mind Continue
(yes, this comparison shows how much I liked these stories). "The Boy
Who Owned the Forest" is simple and neat, while "The Winter of the
River" is bittersweet.…

Over at Comic Bits Online I've asked if anyone has photos of the London event I can use to publicise it. If you have any please let me know.
Paul Ashley Brown was there Saturday and Sunday and says that he really enjoyed himself and had a great time staying with his host Mr.Gherkin. The next event I'm really going to have to attend!

I've just finished my zine for the 24 hour zine thing
project - we were supposed to make a 24 page zine from scratch in July in a single 24 hour period. since this was my first zine, I didn't quite fit in with the project rules - but I made the zine within 24 hours, though spread over the weekend. I typed it up on my new old Gabrielle 25 Adler typewriter - which took me ages! and gave my fingers a good workout. I went to Office Works today to do the… Continue

I finished my medical/psychology zine! It's a half page booklet with hand drawings by myself, random tidbits of information, an article by Meagan Marly (Bug Buffet Zine).
I'm working on a quarter sheet art zine with techniques/tips/tricks/words of wisdom and little bits and pieces of stuff that I find interesting/helpful, as well as all original artwork by myself. It's called "method aptitude" and it's basically like a little art help book with stuff that I've learned and discovered… Continue

Dear People Who Give A Fuck About My Projects:
My life has been taking lots of unexpected turns with family type things that have been incredibly hard to deal with and stay sane and high functioning. Since I always hope my projects are collaborative in nature I feel like a giant douche not keeping people in the loop. I have gotten emails asking what is happening with these two projects so I wanted to write a formal update for everyone who actually cares. And the… Continue

I have 3 zines *so* close... they are all ready to print, except that I am still waiting to find out what my PO Box address will be, so I can't get them printed until I have that on them.
Ditto flyers. All designed and ready to print, but without address.
I've thought about getting them printed anyway, and adding the address when I get it, but the thought of handwriting them all fills me with horror!
If you want a sneak preview you can look… Continue

The latest zine I've produced is called Dreamy Vs Sucks
and I thought I'd write down how it all came together.
Like all the zines I've made lately this one was created with my good friend Brad (Bernard Boulevard
). The concept for the zine came to us months ago when we were brain storming ideas for our comic zine Chicken With Penis
, and during that time we would occasionally toss around different ideas on what the zine would be like. The only thing we really knew… Continue

Well, I just got back from the 2009 Portland Zine Symposium, and I wanted to give you all some praise. This was the first year I've volunteered for the event, and I was very impressed with the cooperative spirit and overall positive vibe of this year's event. I also wanted to thank everyone who donated a zine to the Olympia Library's collection- you know who you are, and I thank you a hundred million times over. See y'all next year...

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
It is the summer of 1943 in LA. All Hispanic Males (or any young men) wearing this, are being beaten up by servicemen. What are the guys wearing that is targeting them for this abuse?
Anyone wearing a Zoot Suit was beat up. Check out the Zoot Suit Riots!
PS They still make them.
We had no winner, Seems y'all were Jittered and Bugged at the same time on this 40's… Continue
