Re-visiting old videos from SF Zine Fest and APE

It looks like Youtube stopped supporting Flash a while back. In the course of updating some broken embeds on my site, I found a bunch of old videos from the SF Zine Fest and the Alternative Press Expo back in 2010 and 2011. I’ve always loved documenting things like this by shooting little interview videos, so it was fun to go back and watch these videos 7 years later and still find inspiration in them. Nowadays I always carry an iPhone lavalier mic around with me for interviews like this, but back in 2010 I’d have to get NICE AND CLOSE to the subject to get the audio right.

For anyone interested, you can see the original posts (with lots of accompanying photos) here:

My Wallets, Zines, and Comics online

New comics, zines, and crafts for Zine Fest!

A few weeks back I wrote about the stress I was having dealing with a lost package for my Kickstarter backers, and how I was giving myself permission to take a break and make some other stuff for a while… we’ll that week was awesome. I ended up printing 3 new comics, 1 new photozine, and shit-ton of sexy looking wallets. One of the best weeks of the year. I sold a bunch at SF Zinefest and have posted everything else up on Etsy.

Take a look at my Etsy page and see if there’s anything you like. Remember that I do combined shipping, so consider adding a zine or thing to your wallet order.


Missed the zine release party? You can still see the show at Lomo SF.

Zine release party

update: I’ve added photos of the available prints (at bottom). If interested, please ping me to arrange payment and pickup.

Months of work (and nailbiting) culminated in this weekend’s zine release party at Lomography SF. I’m so happy that the show was such a success. Thanks to Lomography, Photoworks SF, Speakeasy Beer, and everyone who came out and picked up a copy!

IF you missed the show, you can still buy a copy of the zine from my webstore, or stop by the Lomography SF gallery and see some of my best photos from American Analog on display for the next few weeks. These HUGE prints also happen to be for sale for just $70 each. Hit me up if you’d like to buy one.


Peter S. Conrad’s lottery comic

My chats with Peter S. Conrad are becoming the highlights of my yearly visit to the SF ZineFest. Each year Peter has a new comic book that plays around with the comic book format. Last year I blogged about his wonderfully detailed cassette-tape comic, and this year I had a chance to talk with him about the newest issue of his Attempted Not Known comic, which plays around with the idea of a lottery-ticket comic.
