Chicago Zine Fest 2013

It was another great time at the Chicago Zine Fest, but I almost didn't make it.  The fest filled up on the first day of registration, and I had to get on a waiting list.  Fortunately a spot opened up at the last week.  Then I had to buckle down and finish my new zine that I'd begun slacking on.

I met some…

My year in zines: 2012

2012 was a ridiculously active zine year for me. It started with creating the StolenSharpieRevolution.org site to be a companion to my book. The site includes a Zine Event listing calendar. In February I attended the first L.A. Zine fest and it was great! In March I attended the …

(did we forget to mention?) New issue of Truckface!

Just restocked the new issue of Truckface, which we picked up a month or two ago and realized maybe we didn't make a big enough deal out of it! It's been one of our bestselling zines of the new year and we can't say enough good…

Pieces 6.5 and Chicago Zine Fest.

I will be tabling at the Chicago Zine Fest this year, which I am mightily looking forward to. I had a ton of fun attending the last two years, so I can only imagine that tabling at the darn thing will be even more exciting.

Just in time for the fest, a split I have done with my friend Carrie (of Brilliant Mistake and My Aim is True) will be available at both of our booths as well. So be sure to stop by, say hello, and trade zines!

Who is all coming to the…

The Op Shop

There is a Junk Drawer display at the “The Opportunity Shop” in Hyde

Park in Chicago.

The shop is a temporary experimental project space. It is located in a former Hollywood Video store that has been totally redone as a community art center.

The Junk Drawer set-up was created almost entirely out of stuff found at

the space: sets of drawer, and display racks that were previously used

for DVD’s. Zines are for sale, and there’s a drawer full of odds and

ends you can… Continue

Chicago Zine Fest 2010

It was super cool to be at the Chicago Zine Fest. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Junk Drawer table. I'm glad people enjoyed playing "Guess the Odds & Ends." I only wish I'd had more time to spend at all the other tables. There were so many great zines and zinesters there. Feel free to write your comments about the zine fest, junk drawers, or anything from the zine fest weekend. Looking forward to next year.
