video - DIY: How to Make a Zine

i found this cool video on YouTube, by SamProof, were he demonstrates how to make a zine (small format, about 7.5 cm by 10.5 cm, that's about 2"95 by 4"13) without using glue/staples/stitching/etc, just by a special but simple folding process!



see it here:

Zine Trade Tips

following my last post, on SamProof's video tutorial, he talks about zine trading and he has had a great idea i feel i must share you (even) more people!



according to his own words, if you would like to have a copy of the zine but are short or out of money, you can send a drawing with a self-addressed stamped envelope and you will receive a copy of the zine back! also, your drawing might appear on the next issue of the zine!



i think this is a very good idea! usually, zine… Continue

Some pictures...

I had a tremendously awesome 24 Hour Zine Thing & Reading at my library, and I took some pictures during the reading. I wish I had thought to take pictures during the zinemaking portion of the event, which had over 20 attendees including an 8 year old and a 78 year old. At least 8 of the attendees completed zines (including the 8 year old!). The reading had over 40 attendees. I was boggled at the event's success, which was mostly due to the draw of 6 great zine readers...…

Delays in Zine Printing.

Well yesterday I thought I was gonna be all hard core and go donate some plasma so I could get my second issue of Gestalt and Pepper printed up. The printers I go to charge a booklet fee to scan it all, so I went ahead and scanned all 36 images and put them on a jump drive to bring to them, and save myself the $20 for the booklet fee, figured I could make $25 selling plasma and get at least 10 copies printed. Well to start off, they still had tocharge me the booklet fee, they said because each… Continue

4 Monsters Photo Album

so i deleted the blog post with the pictures of the monsters i drew for the Lucky Creature Attacks coloring book. the in process photos of all the drawings are in the 4 monsters photo album, including a couple of scans. i've sent all the images to scott. i'm at the part of the process where i do not like looking at my work, which is another reason to move it off my main page.

now i'm experimenting with digitally darkening the lines of the faun drawing using Gimp.

On Loving 'Dracula': a 24-hour zine

Here's the cover and a sample page of my 24-Hour Zine Thing creation, On Loving 'Dracula.' I created it on my birthday, July 16. It includes an essay on the 1931 film directed by Tod Browning and starring Bela Lugosi, quotes from the movie, recommendations for further reading, and many posters and images from the film. It's 24 pages, 1/2 size, black and white.



This was the first time I've done a cut-and-paste zine. It was lots of fun! If you have a day to devote to being… Continue

ANOTHER old-new camera!

My uncle, seeing my sudden interest in photography, gave me ANOTHER old-fashioned camera and it was the one he started off with! It takes batteries that are pretty hard to find, but otherwise works great! It's a canon, and even has a zoom lens (my other one doesn't, you just have to aim and shoot). It came with two lenses, tons of black and white film, and a camera bag, but I'm not sure the magnification of the lenses. This weekend I'm gonna look for things to take pictures of; I'll most likely… Continue

old-new camera, issue #2 ideas, and asking for zine reviews!

Wow, you won't believe how excited I am!!! On Friday, at a farmer's market that's kind of near my house (it sells some cool antiques) I was looking through a bunch of crates of junk some guy was selling, and I found an old-fashioned camera that actually uses film! It looked like it was in working condition so I asked him how much it was, and he sold it to me for only $3.00. So I took it home, and asked my mom if she had any film from her old camera. She gave me a roll of colour and a roll of… 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
