Here I am...a montana zine maker

and you can find me on Twitter, Facebook, and at www.slumgullion.org...oh and many of the zines depicted in our photo album are available for trade or sale, just send me an email.. or a twitter.. or a facebook...or.....i'm posting really late at night so this is as coherent as it gets. But I am excited to be here, and to spend many hours perusing people's pages. I'm trying to build a zine library, but am utterly poor, so trading and donations of zines, books, comics, etc are eagerly accepted.

The Orphanage...a work in progress...

Maggie sat in the back seat of a dark grey range rover and wished she wasn't there. It was raining, dream-like mist. The windows smeared and streaked with rain like fast angry tears. The driver was middle aged, mouldy, and smelled of old cigars and unwashed clothing. He did not say a word since he had picked her up, but neither did she. Leaning her head against the window she watched the droplets race from the top of the window to the bottom just like that water-filled game Gran gave to her on… Continue

Newbie Perzine Question

How do you deal with the uncertainty and possible imminent backlash when writing a perzine and reflecting on people and occurrences as truthful as you can? Like i war against myself because I want to be honest...I need to b and get some of this shit out, but I don't want to sever ties...burn bridges...make anyone an outcast....

Any suggestions?

Total Newbie!!!!

I am a total newbie to the world of Zines!
It is here that I hope I am able to finally burst through my writer's bubble that has encased me for so long.
I have so many ideas floating around in my head, I just lack the discipline to allow them to flow forth.

Indtroducing

Wow, first blog.

Unfortunately I've become used to writing and reading incredibly diluted life-stories on myspace profiles; so writing a blog should give me the kick up the backside I truely deserve.

So let's not start with the basics.

- I was born on Christmas day, 1993, during the Queens speech. My mother still managed to eat two chrismas dinners that day.

- I have a passion for history, art, music and history of art and music. Currently I have a developing fixation on… Continue

cheap illustration print sale to help me pay an expensive vet bill!!

CHEAP FUNDRAISER PRINT SALE/CUSTOM ILLUSTRATIONS



My name is Ramsey and I make a zine called list filled with illustrations! If you like my zine, it's a good chance you like it because of the drawings, so I figured it was relevant to post about my illustration sale on here.



My cat, Stella, became very ill over the holiday and the only way to save her was for her to get surgery. Obviously, surgery of any kind, even for an animal, is very expensive. Since she was a young cat,… Continue

I love getting mail!

I came back to school to find a huge pile of mail outside my door, including zines from Susy Pow, Heather, and Emma Stronach! I just opened them and am super-excited to get to read 'em all. One of my favorite things about this whole zine trading business is getting real mail almost every day. :)



So if anyone wants to trade, I've got a new zine out; it's called "Weird Things We Hang On Our Christmas Tree" and is exactly as it sounds. My older zines are still available as well... leave… Continue

Carrots and Condoms: A Review by Xerography Debt

This is a review of Carrots and Condoms on the Xerography Debt blog, posted by librarian666:



"On a personal note, this zine struck a chord of memory with me: that feeling I had just after college, where the working world was so repugnant, so horrible, it drove me mad with despair.



I didn't discover the desire to farm or to somehow create a Portland, OR where I was; I went down in flames of defeat.



So, to you, Coco, you go girl! Keep the passion alive and change… Continue

Call for Zine Exhibition

Hi,



I'm organising a zine exhibition for around March with various zinemakers - a collective, if you like - and I wondered whether you had a zine ready or something you'd like to make, which could be included in the exhibition?



There will be pages (or excerpts) from zines blown up to larger sizes and displayed on the wall in whichever creative form the zinemaker wants. For example, simple A3 or A2 sized posters or on canvasses or inside books hung on the wall... The… Continue
