International Zine Month 2014 poster!

Working on the 5th edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and I need your photos!

 With 21,000 copies of the book in print through 4 editions, Stolen Sharpie Revolution has been the go-to resource for zines and zine culture since 2002. However, Stolen Sharpie Revolution is currently out of print. I’m about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a 5th edition and I need your help! I’d like to make a Kickstarter promo video with photos of Stolen Sharpie Revolution, including your photos! Show me photos of SSR on your bookshelf, in a shop window, on a table at a zine fest. Show me SSR with with you cats, dogs, or hedgehogs! I’d love to see a copy in the middle of you floor scattered with zine making scraps, tucked out of your backpack, or being read in public. All submissions that are included in the video will receive a free copy of the book when it is printed. All submissions must be received by 2 February 2014 Submissions should be sent to: StolenSharpieRevolution@live.com STOLENSHARPIEREVOLUTION.ORG Did you know that the zine resource listings that have always appeared in the back of Stolen Sharpie Revolution are now collected and updated on the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website? The resources were always the most difficult part of upkeep and a website makes this so much easier. Check it out for zine distros, stores that sell zines, a calendar of zine events and more!  As always SSR is only as good as the information I have. If you see that I’m missing something, a ne zine event, a shop in your town that sells zines, a zine distro that hasn’t been included, please send a message through the contact form on the site and I’ll get it added. Please reblog and spread the word! In zines we trust, Alex Wrekk *Multiple copies received from a single person will result on only one free book. Owner of submitted photo reserves all rights to submitted images but may be asked for it to be included in promotional materials.

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 …

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
