IZM - Day 8: Write a letter to a zinester

The activity was to write a letter to a zinester that I don't know. And since it didn't specify whether it was a current zinester, and whether it had to be someone I REALLY don't know, I wrote to my new penpal Alexis who is a former zinester. We've had only a single mail correspondence, never met in person, and she actually had to go digging around her old stuff to find her old zines.

I have yet to send out my letter, but I have a few other packages to organize, including the care…

The flyer below is a photo manip job done on…

International Zine Month 2015--Day 7, 8, & 9

IZM: Day 7, 8 & 9: So I know that these three days have specific things attached to them but I just made a flier for my zines and I didn't have time to make postcards or envelopes but I did spent the evening yesterday writing letters. I will also be doing this tonight and tomorrow night since I have so many awesome people to respond to. Considering the whole month of June was shot for me in terms of creativity, I have a lot of catching up to do correspondence-wise. If I owe you a…

IZM -Day 7: Make a Flyer

At the office, it was pretty quiet so I tried looking around the web for an ecommerce site that I could use instead of Etsy. I started playing around with the layout and everything, and it was fun, so that when I got home, I couldn't stop thinking about it and didn't really feel like making a flyer. But I did what I usually do in situations where I don't really feel like doing something - I go ahead and do it anyway. Eventually, the pleasure of creation ensues.

So I did my flyer. I…

IZM - Day 6: Making Postcards

Keeping by my list of IZM activities (with one day ahead), today I did the day 7 activity of making postcards and envelopes. But I only made postcards because I already have some pretty cool envelopes.

So I made two more postcards for my Alternative Jerusalem postcards collection. I already have Proud Jerusalem, Queer Jerusalem, Feminist Jerusalem, Nightly Jerusalem, and others. Now, I give you Metal Jerusalem and Slutty Jerusalem!

These will also be available on my Etsy shop…

So for day 6 of International Zine Month I updated my Zine Wiki and also my profile on We Make Zines! I wasn't able to participate in day 3 because I don't possess a disposable income and I wasn't able to participate in day 4 or 5 because I literally don't have any zines yet, but I will still try my hardest to participate in all of the days i'm able to!

International Zine Month

I've been doing stuff each day for IZM.  I've never fully participated, so this year I am!  And I'm writing about it.  Gonna make a zine about it.  It's pretty fun!

A new zine is in the works...

....two, actually.

For the first, due by the end of summer:

I have some miscellaneous essay-type things to share and hopefully a slew of band interviews--a rarity for my zine. Topics include vinyl records as memory collection, human time and conscience in the context of geologic and cosmic time, and more.

The second zine will probably take some time, being a long narrative covering Tracy and my growing interest in birding, ornithology, and other naturalist…
