a place for zinesters - writers and readers
This blog is about my favorite subject: me.Mostly just writing about new strips I got in some really cool group comics that turned out bitchun, got good reviews, and are worth giving a look at if your into weird comic art. The first one is called On Your Marks. Its put out by Short Run press out of Sleazeattle. Every artist got one page, and the results are amazing. Usually I'm pretty critical of artists, but every page in this bitch looks dope. Max Clotfeller curated it. He does the dope ass HO-BOT comics in Sean Aabergs PORK Magazine, which is a free paper full of weird groovy art and comics and shit, which is available in record stores, meth houses and porn shacks nationwide. Its got some great artists, some okay artists, and at the bottom of the barrel you've got my art, but I always have a strip in there, so check it out if your a fan. I also glommed onto a copy of NO ME, the in sanely weird underground zine that's also group drawn. Its 3 books bound with string, and has some coo coo comics and art that are pretty mind stretching. I got my copy from Tim- the cover(s) are silk screened, and it turned out great. I also think Too Small Comics mini-comic zine is going to be in the Fantagraphics Treasury of Mini Comics 2, out in 2015. It would be my first comic published by Fantagraphics, so I hope it gets in there. I'm also working on an entire issue of FLUKE Fanzine, all about punk rock in the 80's. I'm still inking it in, and it should turn out good. It should fill in some of the gaps of the all Madness comics issue of Cometbus #39 that came out in 96. I'm psyched to be given the opportunity to guest draw an entire zine again. I'm kind of dragging ass on it, but such is the creative process. I will probably stop by at the Portland Zine Fest this year. I was there for 11 minutes last year, which is a new record for me. I'm still working at a nightclub, and raising my daughter, so I don't have as much time to draw as I used to. I'm still able to crank out some shit though, so if anybody needs a page or wants to review one of my zines, hit me up through this and I'll mail you one.Plus, in the works is a collestion of my five SKULLFUCK Comics that Wow Cool put out in the early 90's when I lived in West Oakland. Teenage Dinosaur will be releasing it, as soon as I finish the cover.
