Report from Kids' Comic Con 2009

On April 25 my daughters and I attended Kids’ Comic Con 2009 at Bronx Community College. We were invited by Mike Weiss, whose daughter Jessica is co-producer of PB&J Comics and a fixture at East Coast zine fests.



This was a really interesting event. For one thing, I haunt some key NYC comic stores regularly, and never heard a thing about this (it was the third annual con). I’m not sure how it was built, but the turnout… Continue

starters

I love starting things. I am a chronic beginner. Mostly this is restricted to my reading materials - I'd say at least 50% of the books on my shelf are half finished, or just started, or even almost entirely read but for some reason discarded a few chapters from the end. Zines are pretty great because the time it takes to read them is usually shorter than the time it takes for me to get sick of reading them or become interested in something else. It's a symptom of my generation: me and all the… Continue

Mini Zine Call Out for the Distro!!!!

Hi all,



I'm looking for some mini zines for my distro. Currently, most of the stock is 1/2 size but I'd like to get some smaller things (1/4 size or 1/8 size). Little comics, little how to guides. little zines!!!!!!!



The distro is online at www.zines.bigcartel.com and on my blog www.zines.wordpress.com. I've been getting HEAPS of orders online lately and having those smaller zines… Continue

Day one project updates!

The garage has been cleared out and the murals spray painted. It's a lovely day. I've been keeping myself busy with library stuff, and completely forgot about my school obligations! I need to work on my time management skills. With the murals done, all that is left now are the donations and the materials to build the shelves with. The library should be open in a month or two depending on how smoothly everything goes. I might need someone to volunteer during lending hours also, if that is… Continue

Zine Exhibit at University of Washington Graduate Library

Yesterday I put up a month long exhibit in the lobby of the University of Washington Graduate Library (Suzzallo/Allen to locals). It was a bit tough aiming it at mostly people that might not know what a zine is as well as trying to add books to the collection about radical and zine cataloging encouraging librarians to collect zines in academic library collections (during March the ACRL conference, as well as the Zine Librarian Unconference, will be taking place in Seattle). It was also hard to… Continue

Nobody Cares About Your Stupid ZIne Podcast!

So, Marc and I recorded the very first Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine Podcast yesterday! I did a bit of editing and I still need to do some more. I worry that the amazing theme song that Androo wrote for us will outshine our podcast. Seriously, the song is amazine (yes, that's right AMAZINE) we played it a dozen times and danced around the dining room!



I hope to… Continue

It's Reclamation Time!

This is from a questionnaire I had to answer from BOOKLYN Artists Alliance, a book art project in Brooklyn NY. I wrote the response last year, in February 2008. It's basically about why I bother to write my zine, Shotgun Seamstress.



Shotgun Seamstress is a zine for people more or less like myself: Black, queer,

feminist, artist, musician, outsider. It is a zine primarily for Black people who

do not fit into white people's stereotypes of what a Black person should be, and… Continue

Richmond Zine Fest 2009 - 1st meeting next week. Probably.

1st meeting for Richmond Zine Fest 2009 will be happening later next week. Probably preliminary, not exactly open type of meeting, and a very short meeting to boot.



Updates will occur more often as the planning progresses and details are confirmed. If you want the updates, it is best to either bookmark www.richmondzinefest.org or add us as friends on myspace or facebook (links are at the top of our profile page at the moment). We may send out messages to our WMZ friends, but who… Continue

I'm Really Excited

I just wanted to post and say how EXCITED I am about today and what today brings.



Today is a zine fair at the Penrith Regional Gallery in Emu Plains. I am especially delighted today because I have loads of new stock in the distro and I can't wait to see Tiny Paper Hearts new felt animals. I also can't wait to find a new notebook to spew my thoughts into all the time. It's been far too long without a pen in my bag.



Besides this, I also just sent off some $$ for a zine grab… Continue
