Introducing: HOPE!

Welcome to H.O.P.E. (Healing through Our Personal Expressions)! I decided to begin this zine in order to offer consumers a place to express themselves. It is said that healing often comes from self expression, no matter what the form. In some case, people feel better after journaling their thoughts and experiences. For others, writing a poem or painting are ways to help on the path to recovery. "It is a well known fact that writing has a positive effect on an individuals sense of well being,"… Continue

I finished this back in July, and it has taken me this long to get around to posting it here.

Next I photocopied these pages, but what is cool is that I photocopied them onto the back of paper that was already used on one side. The side that we didn't want to see was folded in. Then I… Continue

Two Important Bio Papers on the idea of "Zinc World"

Musea E-mail Club #483 Zinc World


This week's e-mail club message is a special one for me. I

how zinc may have played an important role in the start of life.

And not only does it support some of the ideas I had,

but he even mentioned me in the acknowledgments​.​

So it is a real honor to pass on the… Continue

Musea Art Contest 8/18/09 Zinesters Look if you Dare to be Quizzed!

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,

our last contest question of:

When I write my piano pieces – I call them bagatelles -

I most often write them in the ABA form. That means that I start

with a melody passage or theme. Then I switch to

a second melody passage or variation of that theme. And finally I repeat the first passage to end it. That’s the ABA form.

(Personal note: In my case I like to do a major key part, then minor key, then back to the major key… Continue

Weird Procrastination Inversion

So yesterday I planned on working on the monster drawings I am going to submit to the coloring book issue of Lucky Creature Attacks. And instead of drawing, I procrastinated by doing actual boring work. I unpacked this box that's been sitting in my bedroom since I moved over a year ago. It's not like I needed anything in that box, either. I think it's just that I want to draw something different and I want the finished… Continue
