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.

Nearing the end of February already. I have accomplished nothing.
The second issue of Hazel Harper has not yet been born. Maybe soon... maybe not.
It's the brain fog, you see. It seeps in, virtually unnoticed, making thoughts impossible to pull into focus. It is brought on by life. A mind numbing daily life of things that must be done. Wake up, feed the kids, shuffle them off to school, do what's necessary to keep the abode livable, talk to the necessary people, try to… Continue

You may have heard that Tim and I were opening a zine distro. It's open! There are nearly 80 items in our mailorder catalogue, which you can see at takecarezines.org
We are going to be at the diy markets outside The Hub in Newtown this Saturday, the 16th of January, with a suitcase full of zines. So if you live in Sydney come and check it out and save yourself some postage.

Three zines from my "Junk Drawer" series will be part of an exhibition of artist made books at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. There will be 13 other artists and writers featured, and from what I've seen, most seem to be pretty accomplished. And then there's me, with little photocopied, stapled zines. Nothing fancy, but somehow they're in an art exhibit. Well, I'm just glad that zines are being recognized along with other "art books," as they call them.
The show takes place… Continue

Then Hugo who did Churn comics and draws such great big butts! I have grabbed and put in zines with his permission. Now he has drawn a cover especially for ButtRagMag! While I have already… Continue

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
