YOU/Bridges #10 split zine

Released February 2023

Luke YOU invited me to make a split zine with him, and I said YES. 

My side of the split is the 10th issue of my irregular zine Bridges, and contains a story about Antarctica, the moon, and how ‘we’ became artists.

The drawings on my side of the zine were made with electronic typewriter ribbon. Some have secret messages in them, all are chance drawings, most were drawn while David Attenborough’s 1979 documentary series ‘Life on Earth’ played in the background. I got through 12 one hour episodes of ‘Life on Earth’, and did a few more without Sir Dave’s accompaniment, so these drawings took ~13 hours to complete.

Luke’s zine YOU has been made EVERY WEEK since 2001. This issue contains reflections on dog vertigo.

Long live zines, long live split zines.

Other Worlds zine fair poster

I designed the poster for 2023’s Other Worlds zine fair (which I also help organise with a bunch of excellent people).

The poster was risograph printed by Glom Press in coral and black soy ink. Thank you, Glom x

Other Worlds mural

MP Fikaris invited a bunch of zinesters and comic artists to paint a mural on the side of Gigi’s pizza shop in Newtown, NSW.

My Again! Again! Again! Again! Again! is about photocopying, printing, persistence etc.

Thank you Fikaris for organising this, and to the others who worked on the wall: the amazing Claudia Chinyere Akole, Lizzy Nagy and Meg O’shea.

More pix soon.
