"DON'T SAY GOODBYE/JUST LEAVE AN OPEN DOOR" [The Sounds]
Today, I close my zine review blog. I have read through my four boxes of zines and have even had the chance to review a couple of trades. Looking over all of my zines has been a useful review of my youth. With hindsight, I can see how important zines and the independent zine culture have been to my identity as an artist and to my motivation to continue to create and to organize creative groups.
Tomorrow is the Ravenswing Craft & Zine DIY Fair in Minto Park in Ottawa. We'll have over sixty vendors selling crafts and zines, live music from local bands, skill-sharing workshops and the Clothesline Project. I'm giving out my zines to volunteers and selling the rest to help pay for fair expenses. Check out the Info Table for a great deal on some great zines!
