I’m at the community action centre at george brown, checking out their zine library. The whole bottom row is all geoff and I’s zines, pretty much the entire from the margins catalog. #zines #zinelibrary #fromthemargins #seawitchzine #zinesterlife

Why do zines strung on yarn look so damn good?

This is the zine rack I’m curating at Pressed Sandwich Bar in Ottawa, ON.  It’s a little rickety, but I’m pretty stoked.  There wasn’t anywhere to buy zines in this city and now there is. 

This week, it’s my zine rack’s second birthday!  I am very grateful for Pressed for letting me use some of their space, and for all the lovely folks I’ve met through running this thing. 
A word on zine rack economics: I’ve spent $2,300 buying zines for the zine rack over the past two years, and it is really awesome to be able to put money in the pockets of many lovely and talented zinesters.  So far this enterprise has lost $300, so I don’t have to worry about being a sellout, which is a big relief! 
Running this zine rack (and its second location at Gabba Hey, as of spring 2014) has been a special thing in my life because it’s made me feel like I’m part of a community, which is pretty much my favourite feeling. I am still really excited about it and grateful for everyone’s support and the cool zines you-all make.
xoxo

A small update about LAZF 2015 dates and registration

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about LA Zine Fest—when it is, how to apply, etc. Thank you!

Especially on Monday, these two things are often very hard to remember to do.

pressure to have an interesting life seems like its own kind of hell

altcomics

situology:

That’s true! I guess it could foster an attempt at “specialness” that I don’t really want. However, my notions about what an “interesting life” is can be pretty simple, or at least more recently they’ve become pretty simple. It can be as basic as “I should go outside today.” So I go out and I just look around a little more intently, try to focus on small things that bring me joy, trees and the color of a building. Making comics about these things helps me focus on them. Basic mindfulness anti-depression stuff. I’m usually happier if I do this.
