ANOTHER CRAPPY MINI-ZINE:
[UPDATE DECEMBER 2019: I bought myself a newer used scanner/copier/printer for my birthday. Now that I have one that works properly, I'm excited to send back issues 1-9 and current issue #10 around to people. Let me know if you'd like copies! Since I'm currently a non-reliable mail artist who just went through 2-3 years of flitting in and out of mail art existence with barely any explanation whatsoever, I'm happy to send them out as "Guilt Free Mail - No Reply Expected".]
In August 2014 I made #6 of a mini-zine called "Another Crappy Mini-Zine". These are printed on reused paper in black and white using my home laser printer, then individually hand colored. The 8 page folded mini-zines usually have an easter egg which can be found by unfolding them and looking at the "unprinted" side. I've done issues on: How cold it is in my office, how to leave an efficient voice mail, weird tidbits on raising chickens, a fan - zine of Scott drawing birds and a couple others.

All the worries we harbored that the mail wouldn't make it have been blissfully dispelled!
Her contributions to this…Continue
Look what I got! I LOVE IT! It's getting mounted on my wall somewhere in my home, which is where I spend the vast majority of my time since early 2000, so I can see it a LOT.
Gwendolynium from MA sent me "Audax - 2022", and I agree that the title should probably be "What the Actual Fuck?". I had admired this piece aloud here on IUOMA and we…Continue
Amy Kiessling's contribution to the Wreck This Journal (by US Postal Mail!) arrived this week and it's wild, energetic, bright, creative and cool!
On page 50 she uses staples, string, 4 colors of washi tape, tiny golden arrow tape, domestic mail labels with thick black marker graffiti, a hole punch and (hand carved?) rubber stamps of a spiral,…Continue
