The Copy Scams record, zine, and digital download coade might make and excellent gift to that zinester that has everything...

Might I suggest The Copy Scams album? A 10” record with 7 90s style pop punk songs all about zines plus a digital download and a 12 page zine with artwork by me and Steve Larder of Rum Lad Zine.

I also roast my own coffee…

Portland Button Works and Zine Distro needs your help!

This started as a dream, literally a dream, that slowly invaded our sleeping and waking hours.  We’ve been working on this for what seems like months.  What started out as cross-continent online chats, turned into coffee filled breakfasts and Google docs full of ideas.  Now those ideas are becoming a reality.

Derek Neuland and I have joined forces to create Portland Button Works and zine distro!  With a collective 15 years of button making experience, we feel our custom button…

Brainscan 24 and 25!

BRAINSCAN 25-This zine has been five start and stop years in the making. I finally finished it in October of 2009 at the Anchor Archive zine residency in Halifax, Nova Scotia.



Brainscan 25 Chronicles my Saturn return as a love story, an ending, and a new beginning with someone from my past. The Saturn Return is the time between ages 27 and 30 when the planet Saturn is in the same place it was at your birth. It is usually seen as a harbinger… Continue

Word: a Celebration of font and text exhibit

So, I tired to post this in the events section and it wouldn't work!



I was asked to take part in this exhibit, which is awesome! I even had to write an artist statement and stuff. It is at the Interstate Firehouse Culture Center that is 3 blocks away from my house. I made a giant collage of images from Brainscan and I have two shelves of my zines.... all of the zines I have printed since 2003.



Other pieces include artist books, posters by various Portland printers, zine… Continue

More Brainscan 23!

I'm getting some more copies of brainscan 23 back from the printer today... with all the errors fixed. Seriously, I threw it together the day before the zine symposium while I was literally in a fever haze. I got sick that night and couldn't go to the reading. My fever broke around midnight and I was sort of ok for the symposium but my zine pages were jumbled and I got 150 copies instead of 50. But, now there is a better intro and the pages are in the right place. good for me. You can always… Continue
