It’s getting close to June 15, the deadline for issue 2 of GRAPH(feeties) [hint, hint SUBMIT!]
Since launching issue 1, I’ve tabled at an underground publishers convention, designed a logo/stamp/stickers and bookmark, met lots of awesome zinesters, had GRAPH(feeties) distributed through Wasted Ink Zine Distro (wonderful shop/zine community in Tempe), and become the enthusiastic owner/refurbisher of a hundred-year-old Multigraph printing press that I hope to soon use for letterpress zine covers. Making a zine is a fantastically freeing experience. I recommend zine-making to anyone with access to paper and a pencil/pen/typewriter. Here are a few pictures from my zine-making adventures.
The Sticker/Stamp/Logo I designed. I gave away stickers and bookmarks at the underground publishers convention. The stamp is being made. I plan to stamp envelopes and letterhead (until I get my multigraph up and running)

A visual summary of the zine-making life 🙂
Reading Zines at Wasted Ink Zine Distro
My Multigraph’s first word (made by me. It’s about 100 years old, so it’s made a lot of words in its lifetime)
A page I did for a community zine. All the pages were made in one night at Wasted Ink Zine Distro.
My Multigraph and its typeface. Totally cool machine! If anyone knows where I can procure an inking roller, let me know 🙂
