Hello, I will be reading from zebadiah two! Team Craw will be reading the roles of Zebadiah and Eula-lee and Asher and Lillie. There will be rosemary, and maybe a rendition of a Scotts Irish ballad. Who knows?!?!?
Gridlords is the raddest, I can’t believe it is real sometimes.
Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC)
I went and had a look around the IPRC, which is essentially a one stop shop for those interested in the self-publishing scene in Portland. The facilities include; letterpress, screen printing, computers to use on site, an ever expanding zine library, as well as the use of typewriters, photocopiers, printers, guillotines, binding machines and anything else you might feasibly need.
They’ve been up and running for 15 years, and their space now is fantastic - sounds like it has come a long way from the days of “a photocopier in a closet”.
It is based on an affordable membership scheme, enabling anyone to get involved. They also do a lot of outreach projects, courses, and collaborate with local organisations.
Thanks to Chloe and Asher, two of the volunteers that let me wander around and distract many of their members. I left feeling somewhat envious that London hasn’t got anything quite like this to offer.
The IPRC in Portland is huge, impressive and awesome! I wish there were something like that in Los Angeles. I’m sure tons of people would be into it!
Oh yeah I volunteer here. Can you spot Lillie and Sam feuding?
Zines: luck has nothing to do with it.
I’ve been busy with some projects, and I was rifling through my desk and found this discarded draft of my PZS poster. You can see the one I submitted (and was selected) here: http://ashersprogress.tumblr.com/post/45690619793/for-2013-weve-chosen-the-absolutely
Hello Internet! Team Craw (me and Lillie) is giving a really cool talk/zine instructional THIS MONDAY, May 6th at the SE PCC campus.
We will be leading some exercises in writing and mark making and teaching how to collaborate through the medium of zines.
It is free and open to the public. It is from 9am to 11am. It is going to be RAD!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is my work schedule for Zeb III. I made a chart for Zeb II and it definitely helped me keep on track. Thanks to the SAW Micro Grant and The Lord of The Grid Prizes, I will be able to complete this work in time for an All Souls Day Release, and then take it on the road to Short Run.
