Sight seeing

Since first entering into the world of zines, just a little while ago, every time I come here I end up reading. I read forum threads, follow links and read more and that stirs thoughts, lots and lots of thoughts. It's kind of like being a tourist in a city you've decited to visit and then just end up staying because the city is just so completely absorbing.



Tonight was no different. I was going through the different thread discussions and came across the one about old and new zine… Continue

The bottom of the jar as art

I'm working on my second zine. I came up with a name for the issue, peculiar landscape and was initally going to do an exploration on altered views, but the more I think about it the more I'm thinking that what the zines I create should be about is art. It's the one thing that I understand in my bones.

I do alot of writing, but it's mostly observations that have nothing to do with what any one else says or thinks, or political views although I have been known to be extreemly vocal as to… Continue

Zine number 2

So I'm off and running on zine number 2. This one is under the phaugey dox heading, but is called pecuiar landscape. I decited I wanted to do something that would mess with the idea of normal and perseption of what normal life looks and feels like.

So it's going to take a bit to finish.

My hope is that by the time it's done some of the other problems I've been looking at will be fixed.

New copier. printer, better camera, fixed car. Ok so the car might not be fixed by then but who… Continue

I finished my first zine

Ok so I got over excited about the whole thing, and finished it in two days. I took pictures of the cover and some of the guts(inside of it) and am posting them in my pictures.

On to the second issue...should I pick a topic and beat it to death?

My creation has a name

After brainstorming and comming up with a list of names for my zine, I still didn't have one that I really liked. I decided to just start cutting letters out. I've got this stack of typerwriter key letters that I got a couple of years ago from one of the craft stores here in town.

They were ten cents a peice so I bought the whole stack.



Anyway, I'm cutting out letters while these different words are going through my head and it hit me, foggy docks, but since I really love these… Continue

Saturday morning

It's 8:38 a.m. I've been wandering around on this site. First day here. Into the world of learning I go, hi ho, hi ho, cookies and milk or maybe something else to chew on while I'm reading and thinking and thinking somemore.

I've been doing art for a long, long time now and writing for a long, long time and I've heard about zines for a few years and have tried to grab hold of what zines really are and so I'm here to learn and make my own. But I need a name that says it all, speaks to the… Continue
