The front and back of a postcard that I and the rest of my studio class will be exchanging with an art school in Australia. Little more is known. Hopefully this will be jarring enough to interest my penpal.

We’ll be using this here Tumblr to give updates on our zine-ing life, as well as for sharing relevant stuff we’re interested in — other zines we love, used book nerdery, cool…

Virtua Fighter Kids, Saturn.
Finished a pile of printing today! Numbered editions of 50, of monthly zines from last year’s diary strips. This should be more than enough for the show and the International Manga Festival in November if I am able to go this year.
I really like the covers, and they were more than a little inspired by the quality and class of the zines put out by minimalcomics.
It’s an utter coincidence, but I appear in the two covers in the centre. It makes a lot of sense, and I wish I’d done it on purpose. I should have conceived of the twelve to piece together slightly tighter. Regardless, they look good, feel good (I used textured paper), and a massive weight is off my shoulders.
The Carmelite Monastery of San Ángel
Mexico City, Mexico
I’m currently working on a full piece for Atlas Obscura on theses guys but I couldn’t wait to share the photos. These are naturally occurring mummies on display in the crypt beneath the monastery in San Ángel. The corpses are former parishioners of the neighboring church buried between 1600 and 1800. They were found by accident when troops ransacked the monastery during the Mexican Revolution in 1917.
More to come soon…
All photos by me.
