Dreams of Donuts 24



Dreams of Donuts 24 is done, this issue being titled "Old/Scattered" since most of the material I write about is from early 2015. In this issue I talk about going to the 2015 Portland Zine Symposium, my trip back with the band Moira Scar, and issues that happened when I got home, including a falling out with a lover and my time spend with a mysterious illness in the Emergency Room. Ordering information unsure as of now, I will probably try to figure out some sort of online payment set up, until now you can just email me if you are interested and we can work something out: all4choice@hotmail.com

Back at the Brush

I cannot tell you how happy I am to be painting again! I'm sure it would be a lot easier if I learned techniques that people learn in art school, but honestly I just really love to paint, even if I'm not doing it right. This month I checked out the First Friday Art Walk here in Portland, and all the shows I checked out inspired me to pick up the paint brush again, which resulted in this. More to come, xoxo!

Bat

When I first finished this, I realized that I had accidentally put the wings on upside down. At first I was like, "fuck it!", I'm just going to leave it, but the next day I figured, why not just do it right?

In other news, I have actually finished a new issue of Dreams of Donuts. I don't know why I haven't posted anything about it yet, but I'll post some pictures and info probably later today. I am living in Portland now, so I don't know what to do with my zine now that it's done. In the Bay Area I knew where stores were that sold zines, but so far here, with internet searches and asking around, it doesn't seem like there are any places to sell zines at. However, if I find something I will keep you posted.

Another Way Old Post and Walk Down Memory Lane


Back in 2006/7 in Sacramento, my best friend A and I would silkscreen our doodles onto shirts we either dumpstered or found or whatever, free was what we could afford. Then we would go to events at the Greenhouse, which was a giant cooperative hippy house smack dab in the middle of midtown and all the art walk action, and sell them. Back then there was kind of a lapse in spaces to have house shows, or really shows in general. The Greenhouse started opening up their backyard to shows during Second Saturdays, and although it was kind of a hippie scene, it was still nice to get that house show, diy, community vibe. Bands would play out back in a gazebo, and the rest of us would party in a christmas light lit beautiful garden. I have a lot of fond memories of the Greenhouse, for stepping up and being a space when the city was lacking, albeit it wasn't really my scene. This is one of the shirt designs I found that I would sell then.
