Alex's life revolves around making things; primarily zines, buttons, vegan food, travel plans, and space for a cat in her bed.
Alex Wrekk has been creating the zine Brainscan since 1997 with stories ranging from travel, reproductive health, love, emotional abuse recovery, zine culture, and even fiction all wrapped up in text and photocopier art. She also wrote the book Stolen Sharpie Revolution: A DIY guide for zines and zine culture that is now entering its 5th printing.
When Alex isn't doing zine things she is doing other zine things like being an organizer the Portland Zine Symposium, establishing July as International Zine Month, commiserating with Zine Event Organizers around the world, updating the zine event listings on the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website, hosting the podcast Nobody Cares About YOur Stupid Zine Podcast, fidgeting with her Risograph printer, reading from her zines out loud on zine tours or singing in a zine themed back called The Copy Scams.
In 2012 Alex opened Portland Button Works and zine distro, an online and brick and mortar shop in Portland, Oregon selling zines and books and making custom buttons, magnets, and bottle openers in 3 different sizes.
