Independent Variables: Contemporary Zine Publications—an Art Call from MCBA


Above: Page spread from "Lucky Dog" a single-issue zine I made using sketches from my journal, drawn while Lucky (a beagle) came to stay at Spa Roz, while her family went on vacation. (Activities included adventure walks, body massage, grooming, great food, and intelligent conversation—as well as modeling gigs.) This zine is 4.25 x 5.5 inches, so the spreads are 8.5 inches wide. It was produced using scans of my sketches and QuarkXpress on a Mac.

I have a love-love relationship with zines. Don't get me started, I actually think that they are an important part of the "American way" stretching all the way back to early broadsides. (I told you not to get me started.)

Well MCBA is having a last minute zine show and I wanted to spread the word, in hopes that some of you would consider sending in your work.
