Finding an Audience with Zines

I'm a comedy writer and occasional performer, and am always looking for new ways to find an audience for my material.

The joy in writing comedy is making people laugh, but there are so many barriers to reaching an audience that it can be a frustrating business. A sitcom script is essentially a piece of literature until you can convince a lot of people to make your show. Most of the time, it doesn't happen.

So I've found ways around it - through stand-up, podcasting and even…

Quatros - 4 new ones

QUATROS



when the sky is clear

stars abound



a foreigner

in heavy fog



scarecrow warning sign



outside noise!

the reader surfaces ...



What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning.…

Re-released zines! "Genius (Love)" and "non sense"

As part of my ongoing effort to simplify my life, I've re-released a zine and a chapbook that were out of circulation for a long time. The zine "Genius (Love)" has been out of circulation for 4 years because I never found the time to screenprint the covers! I decided to re-do the cover so I can just…

First Quizzical of June

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



Perhaps the best YEAR in rock was 1965 (I could vote for that). And perhaps the greatest rock song of that year was "Like A Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan. But which take of the fifteen of that song on June 16th, did they use for the record?



Let me set the scene June 15th. Bob has already recorded 9 takes of "Phantom Engineer", and 6 of "Sitting on the Barbed Wire Fence." Now he begins to work on "Like a… Continue

Cheap Shots #1

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014 should be the printing date for my zine, "Cheap Shots" which is a combination illustrated comic/sci-fi story zine.  It will also feature a few pin-ups of "rocket girls" and "jungle girls" rendered by me.

 

Currently I am unable to post any pics of it, but if you would like to get a copy, please message me or leave a comment.  I would like to trade for another zine or stamps,  or offer it for $3.50 postage paid.   

 

Just provide me with…

Vapour Trails #2: Ethnicity and Existentialism

Hey all, I have a new Vapour Trails 'zine out. It's called Ethnicity & Existentialism (it's not philosophical, but it is about race and representation, as well as my personal experiences as a mixed person of colour living in Canada and in Western Africa). It's a little all over the place, but it took a long time to put together. Each page's background is painted with watercolours and it is 21 half-sized pages.

I'm charging $5 to help me break even from those god awful colour…

Sayings of Eddie Art (continued)

Sayings of Eddie Art (continued)

SAYINGS:



X: Did it hurt when you fell out the window?

Y: Only the last step.;



The music business has been in pretend mode for a long time.



The desire for peace has to be stronger than the desire for revenge (to end a conflict)



The most elaborate fashion is often the quickest to date, and the most simple seldom goes out of style.



Loss of diversity leads to loss of tolerance for diversity [small… Continue

To Whom?

To Whom? A collection of messages that travelled the open road and wound up on someone else’s doorstep. 



A sort of an ode to the postcard made in May of 2014, with crucial contributions from a man named Morris. …

Love Poems (4)

FOUR LOVE POEMS

had I
not been in love
I would have passed
the flowers by

.

the Lord
has a sword
and the Lady
a baby

..

Love is only pain and sorrow
yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
One door in and no way out.
Only pain to sing about

...

the Match
met the Candle ...
true love!
