First Post...

I remember some time ago hearing about Zines... and I was interested.  Very interested.  I never heard of them before and I was intrigued.  I knew about comics.  And I knew about Graphic Novels.  But Zines??? Cool!

Some time ago, I started a Google+ Zine Community, mostly because there wasn't one already.

So far, crickets. I think we have 3 members and no one (including myself) as posted a thing. I though it would be a good place to post a photo of my zines with a link to where they could be purchased.

hello world!

It just occurred to me that I hadn't actually said much, despite reading through a lot of forum threads. So, here I am! I'm still figuring out my "style" when it comes to making things... I have a one-page zine about independence days in North America if anyone would be interested in that.

This is a good place.

Twilight World #21

20 B&W pages of god-knows-what of the following: two weeks-worth of Mardi Gras in New Orleans with MANY pictures, a comic balls deep into Pulp Fiction and the rest of the 90’s (only with fur) and a opening shout out and warning to Dick Vaughn and what was left of the 70’s in his wake.

It’s digest size, 20 B&W pages with a $3 price tag or selective trade.

Handwriting Font

I ran across zinester, GreogeRgR who used to make fonts out of samples of folks' handwriting.

After reading his profile, I started looking for someone who still did that type of service. I stumbled upon a site that will translate my handwriting into a font. The process is straight forward; you downloaded their template, used a black in…
