Shit From Nowhere Vol. 2

Volume number 2 is here! I was so pumped with how Volume 1 turned out that I contacted my friends again and got the ball rolling on Volume 2. This time around it’s Randy Vale, Kyle Cannon, Ryan Newhouser, and myself. I must say that I am stoked with how it turned out. I think this is going to become like a quarterly thing, with a new zine every 4 months or so. We are also talking about opening it up more to other artists who are interested, as well as maybe including some writings and/or short stories. I think this can be a cool way to have a bunch of talented people work together. I honestly can say that I am really excited with where this project is going.

I have copies of Shit From Nowhere Vol. 2 for sale in my store.

Shit From Nowhere Vol. 1

A couple of months ago I contacted my friend Randy Vale about doing a zine. I’ve been wanting to do one for awhile now. Luckily he was as stoked as me about putting something together. I then asked Jim and my friend Kyle Cannon to submit some drawings as well. With our forces combined we came up with the first Volume of Shit From Nowhere.

It’s a collection of 26 drawings that we felt were worthy enough to bless your eyes with. We made an edition of 30 and each zine is hand numbered. If you would like a copy, we are currently selling them for 5 bucks. I have some copies available in my store.

Remember, Stay Rad!

Whatcha Mean, What’s a Zine?

Earlier this year, we stumbled across an artist web site called, Fudge Factory Comics, which is done by Travis Millard out of Los Angeles. The thing that captured our attention was his section on zines. Since finding this, we have had it in the back of our heads that this would be a fun casual project for us to do every now and then. This past quarter at school we had a class that involved hand stitching and binding books. For one of the projects we did our first test run and created a zine. The covers were screen printed and we had some pages of random thoughts and expressions done with a typewriter. We have talked with others that also have interest in this area, and are looking to do some collaboration sometime soon. Below are some shots from the ones we did in class.
