I thought that it was going to take me a couple more weeks to finish this issue, but then yesterday I went on a drawing marathon, cut out the majority of the text I had left over, and then stayed at kinko's til 11pm and then next thing I knew, I was done! Ordering info at the top, here's some crappy pictures.

My schedual has been totally out of whack, since I currently have two jobs and have been lucky enough to have two of my best friends grace me with their presence here in Oakland, but things are almost back to normal. I still have a way to go with this issue, but at least I can actually see completion from here.

I made a mixtape for someone from Brazil, who ordered zines from me a while ago and I haven't mailed yet (but will this week) cuz of brokeness and busy-ness. P.S. I will never understand why I love kewpie's so much.

Once I finish this zine I'm gonna take a
week off from all art projects and lay in
bed watching netflix while eating vegan junk food.

For the upcoming Dreams of Donuts #22
Saturday, May 9, 2015
Dreams of Donuts #21 got a review in the June 2015 issue of MRR, and, well, I'll just type it out...
Dreams of Donuts #21 : I'm in a perzine avalanche this month and damn, the Dear Diary issue isn't as awesome as this zine usually is, but it's still charming. I just didn't get into it like I usually do. This comic has rad and intricate illustrations I've come to love, but this issue is surprisingly hopeless and full of sad subject matter, or mundane. Not that a bummer fest is bad necessarily, and it is tempered with some highs, there are just more lows and a lot of heartbreak. Unrelated strings of thought that can only come from diary entries, which, no matter what anyone says, I really think are just for the person and nobody else.
Ouch!!! Actually, it's not that bad, and I pretty much agree with everything Julia Booze said. This issue is also the first time I work with MRR as a demo reviewer, which is a lot harder then I thought it would be! Here's one of my reviews!
Putrid Cause - "Super Happy Fun Time
Friends" - If the band BUCKETFLUSH
were potheads instead of alcoholics, you would
have PUTRID CAUSE. Actually, why haven't
they toured together or done a split yet?
Either way, punk as hell. This is a band I could
really see at Libertatia with a circle pit
up front kicking up hella dust. If that is
your thing, this tape is for you, but prepare
for a lot of empty tape after three or
four songs on each side. Next time maybe
they could order shorter tapes? (Added
bonus, each tape comes with a rolling paper!)
I think I'm doing okay so far. Also, I'm still working on Dreams of Donuts #22. Probably about half way done at this point.

Is it spelt flyer or flier?
This show is gonna be really good, plus it's our friend Susie Q's birthday party! The Healers are my dear friends and coincidently an amazing band, plus Ancient Wing is back together and they RULE! Here's what the original looks like:
(Notice I gave the Crude Studs a shout-out via the button on the sweater?)
