New zine! Miss Sequential #3

It's true!

Yes! A new zine!

I finished this one a few weeks ago, but then went on a 2-week road trip between San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR, making stops at both the Portland Zine Symposium and the San Francisco Zine Fest. It was awesome, and I intend to make a zine or comics about the adventure. But that's why you may just now be hearing about this.

Miss Sequential #3 is a 32-page zine about my trip to San Francisco in 2009, featuring lots of travel-journal writing, my drawings, and collages of ephemera I collected throughout the trip. This zine is much less strictly-comics than most of the things I've been working on lately, but it reminds me a lot of the zine I used to write, Red-Hooded Sweatshirt. I think it's great, and I am assured by those who have already read it that you will totally love it.

Now available from my etsy shop.

Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

Or, rather, OK.

OK winner medal

Congratulations, you're OK! Maybe that's great, maybe it's a little cheeky; you decide. Available at the thimblewinder shop. I'm working on some more designs for these, and will be offering monogrammed ones (yes!!) very soon.

So what's the deal with the winner medals? Mostly I just like them. Also, in high school I had this penpal named Jeremy who lived in Massachusetts. He and his pals wrote this crazy zine called The Banana Revolution and gave out winner medals to deserving friends of the revolution. One autumn, Jeremy and his friend drove through my hometown on their way to see They Might Be Giants in New Haven, and called me from the pay phone at Walgreens to see if I wanted to hang out. My friend Liz and I met them at the Taco Bell next to the graveyard (Which sounds totally hot and dangerous, right? I can't believe my dad let me out of the house.), and they gave me a winner medal and took my soul. Just kidding about the soul part-- they were nice dudes, and we hung out in the parking lot and had awkward zinester conversation.
