what size to make?

I am toiling over 1/4 sized and 1/2 sized for Introvert #6. I think 1/2 sized is winning.

Topics?

It'll probably end up being a lot about my nephew passing away from SIDS last year. I think i am finally ready to put it all out there.

We Make Zines is amazing

My boyfriend is sick of hearing this, so I thought I would do a blog post about it. I am constantly reminded of how amazing this site has become because of all of you and how glad I am I started it.



Sometimes I get the time to really pop around from one persons page to another and seeing all the comments is so great. There are so many conversations going on here. So many little worlds. People seem to really be connecting and re-connecting. I feel such warmth for you all and for zine… Continue

warm bed, old zines, zine art show, IPRC, and the Portland Zine Symposium Planning...

I'm currently in my bed in my cold room with my laptop under a fake down comforter that is fantastically warm and making me not want to get out of bed into the rest of the frigid house. You see, apparently our house has been entered into some sort of contest to see who can hold out from turning their heat on the longest. I'm usually the only one here during the day I just close my self in the office and wear my new hat with ear flaps to stay warn. I stay even warmer on days where I have coffee… Continue

Calendar Girl 6 is in the Works!

Despite being up to my ass in alligators this weekend, I have taken up work on CG 6. It is going to be about my move to Ottawa, starting university and other such things. It is going to look a little plain because I didn't bring all of my zine stuff with me when I moved because I didn't have enough space. It should be good. I have high hopes for it.

'Zine Archives

Not gonna lie, pasting s/medium text as JPEG is one thing but making it legible for the web is something else.

Anyhoo, I spent last weekend taking the best pages from my 'zine GENEROUS and categorizing accordingly.

My website is http://www.crazations.com and my Etsy link on the homepage.

Full versions are about 10 pages and sell for $2 but will consider trade from fellow members!

Tootin´ my own horn (or "Now that´s a good review!")

I just received the new issue (#6) of Jason Rodger´s zine review zine "Media Junky" & listen to this kick ass review of my humble lil´ zine "Going Postal!":



"A fabulous work. This zine is devoted to mail art & zines, as social phenomena. This looks at the personal & political relevance of alternative communications. There is no lack of theory, nor the relevance of personal experiences. The material maintains a critical stance, not only covering positive aspects. Articles… Continue

Mini-Comic Anthology Brings Gimmick Back



Coming straight out of left field like a Tampa Bay Ray, Candy or Medicine Volume Five harks back to the Golden Age of comics. You might remember KISS #1 from 1977, in which the band members’ blood was mixed in with red ink used to print the comic. Or for you youngins, Malibu Comics’ Protectors #5 with the first, and thankfully only, forcebeam hole. And those of you who prefer an indie flavor and had your ear to the ground in ’93 might remember… Continue

Total Liberty is now on-line!

I just received the Autumn/Winter 2008 issue of Total Liberty: A Journal of Evolutionary Anarchism edited by Jonathan Simcock. In the editorial Jonathan mentions his new website:



"The website address is http://anarchistvoices.wetpaint.com/ and it features over 15 different videos. There are also photographs, a Links page and a page where there are 17 back issues of Total Liberty as pdf files available for free download and an (as yet) unused discussion forum.

Book List '08

So, I've put this everywhere else (partially because I'm excited about having read so much, partly to gather suggestions). Just in case you haven't seen it, and want to suggest a book. I won't promise to read it, but I'll at least look at the description on amazon and consider it. Not to sound like a jerk ... but you know. Not everyone has the same interests.



These are the books I have read so far this year.



1) A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - Dave… Continue

Tales of Inertia #2 finally out

After only about a 6 month delay, I finally finished Tales of Inertia #2. It contains a 24 hour comic I did in April 2008, about a bunch of australopithecus afarensises 3 million years ago, and also Moonshine, the sequel to Seaside Retreat, from issue 1.

excerpt from "Going Postal!" #1

How I Stumbled Into The World of Independent Publishing: in memory of Irving Stettner by Kris Mininger



It was the summer of 1997. I was in New York City for a few days visiting friends before catching a flight to Greece. On the morning of the day of my flight I walked to the great Strand Book Store at 12th and Broadway to look for something to read during the “jump over the puddle”. I was 22 years old and was at the height of my Henry Miller & Charles Bukowski obsession.… Continue

.: 1000 Journals Project and Film

Q&A with Someguy from 1000 Journals Project {printed in Art Bureau 15}

Your website is very thorough in explaining the 1000J Project, but could you give a very brief synopsis about it?

The 1000 Journals Project is a worldwide collaborative art experiment. One thousand journals were sent out into the world and those who find them add something—writing, artwork, photographs, whatever they…

New Version of Book Art- MINI!

Having done a lot of research into the world of zines, and the unfortunate discovery that printing an A5 full colour zine is not at all cheap, I've spent today mucking about with layout and print settings and have finally managed to squidge Book Art into a much smaller, envelope friendly size. Much cheaper to print, easier to post, and the pictures still look lovely.

Feel so much better ;)
