A Modern Woman on the Move

in hot pursuit of the great green light…

I’m a zine hustler…

with one comment

Making the Portland Zine Symposium update yesterday, reminded me to update my blog. Then I quickly realized I am majorly lacking on updating my blog again. Oh, sigh.

I better use this opportunity to announce that I organizing and doing the 3rd Annual PZS 24hr Zine Challenge this year. I would encourage most any zinester/comicker to try a 24hr project at some point in their creative life. It’s really exciting, scary and fulfilling. Even if you don’t finish (I didn’t the first year), you inevitably learn a lot. If you’re not up to the challenge, please consider sponsoring me (I only have one sponsor, but that jerk Alex Wrekk has, like, a million). Speaking of which, my one sponsor is the ever-awesome Neil Brideau. He is a friend of mine that lives in Chicago, makes awesome comics, and helped start / organizes the Chicago Zine Fest.

If you sponsor me for $10 or more, you get a free copy of the zine (but you only pay if I finish) and PZS gets a donation, so everybody wins. So far, the 24hr Zine I made last year is the only zine of only my work I have ever made, so this will, hopefully, be the second.

I am not sure where to begin. My life is totally swamped with PZS, I am super behind on Stumptown Underground‘s summer issue organizing. I am asking the others for help, but Katie A. is in the same boat as me, Katy O’Brien is in Sweden being an au pair for the summer, Kirsten is still in Korea, Jon just got a job (congratulations, dude), and hopskotch is just always busy. Oh, by the way, did you know Stumptown Underground is a collective and we’re open to new members? Because, yeah, we could sure use some more, dedicated hands.

Oh, also, the deadline to submit to Stumptown Underground ocean issue is July 23rd. If you submitted to the summer issue, you should her from us soon!

ocean issue, zine submissions call

I will make a more personal update soon, I swear…
