international Zine Month Day 17 &18
So, over the weekend I participated in the Portland Zine Symposium’s 24 Hour Zine Challenge, AND I FINISHED! That means that all 8 of you (only 8, really?) sponsors need to get your money in so I can send you my new zine. I printed 20 and gave a few away to participants so I’m not sure if there will be any left or if I will reprint them. I need to get my brain back and clear my head. I slept 2 hours in 28. Even after a full night’s rest I still feel a little off. here’s the order of events:
spent about a hour trying to figure out how I was going to get my zine making stuff plus symposium coffee and snacks and stuff to the IPRC. Finally loaded it all on my bike.
Doug took this photo of me diligently working with laptop AND typewriter.
International zine month day 17: sleep deprived and still wearing the shirt from the day before...but I finished my zine!
The cover is so-not my style at all- but I do like it. The new copier at the IPRC does color copies at a reasonalbe price. I cut all these irises out of an old iris catlalog from the 60s. I'm not used to working in color so this was fun. The insert is also in color.
The theme, following my packing for the event, was "it's complcated" so, I answered complicated questions like "what do you do?"
...and "how long have you and Paul been together?"
with a fold out time line of 20 years showing how long we have known eachother.
Then I went home and slept for two hours and then woke up for a few more hours, enough to watch the new Torchwood and hang out with Paul and then fall asleep again. I need a shower.

It should be noted that there was no clear indicator about how to pay for being your sponsor… Perhaps it now says what to do? I e-mailed to be one, but then… crickets. Do I send my money to the IPRC? Any clue? I saw no instructions. I looked for them. Nothing.
Maybe I’m just an idiot? This is entirely possible.
The participants are supposed to collect funds. You can send them directly to pdxzinesATgmailDOTcom if you want to send it through paypal.Or you could paypal it to me and I’ll get it to the PZS.
Ah ha! Well, that’s helpful. 🙂 I shall now commence with behaving in a sponsor-esque way. Love to the kitzels (“cats” in Yiddish).
