Slingshot Organizer and No Gods No Mattress #19

Finished my month at a glance for the Organizer (finally) and mailed it out today.  The Organizers will probably be up for sale sometime in the winter.

Also, I recently hosted the New Happiness after a really chaotic house show that ended up getting moved twice in one night, and Enola gave me her new (really good!) zine, that I get featured on both covers!  The front is a drawing I did for her a while ago, and the back is a pic from Portland of Enola, Ari, and I, all totally babes.

I did this flyer as a favor for my mixtape penpal Chadwick (who does the solo project Andy Cigarettes, you should check it out).  So that means this flyer is for a show in Portland.

Slingshot Organizer 2014

I week down, three to go.  I really have artists block today, I stared at this paper for what felt like hours before I came up with this, which I'm not really stoked about but FUCK ITTTT.


I know I'm recycling this drawing, so sue me.  My buddies the New Happiness are coming to play this month, and I am SOOO excited!  You should go and give them all of your money and obscure goth cassette tapes.

Internation Zine Month

I got this in my email today, and all I could keep doing was smiling and saying "Awwwwwwwww" to my self.  Seriously, this is so sweet!  I guess I should be participating in the Zine month activities, but ya know, I've been kinda busy.  Maybe next year.

Subject: Happy International Zine Month
Date: Tue, 9 Jul 2013 22:18:51 -0400

Hello Heather Wreckage,

Today's activity for IZM is to write a letter to a zine maker that you don't know. Which is harder than it sounds, because I know so very few zine makers and there are tons that I don't know. I figured I'd narrow it down by writing to someone I don't know, but who writes a zine I like. 

And I really like Dreams of Donuts (I picked it up 15 and 17 from you at the Atlanta Zine Fest). So that explains this email.

I hadn't encountered your zine before the zine fest. I love the mix of pages of text with full on comics and the covers on both of those issues are fantastic. The Occupy Oakland story was enlightening - all I ever saw of the Occupy Atlanta was people in tents. Never saw anything about the people doing anything (let alone so many meetings!). Of course, what I saw was limited by what the powers that be wanted me to see. Which is really my fault for not trying to find out more - so thank you for your take.

Oh and I know you wrote that nothing excited happened in 17 and it was boring and all that, but your writing is personal and honest (if it's fiction, you a damn good job as coming across as honest), and I found it a compelling read. Probably even more so than issue 15.

Anyway, I just peeped your blog and saw that #18 is now available and it too has an awesome cover, so I'll be ordering that soon.

I hope you're having a great International Zine Month.


ps. that goat skull is phenomenal!

Work in progress...

My coworkers always want to know why I want to leave early.  THIS is why I want to leave early; new pens and new projects!  This is meant to be a flyer for the New Happiness show coming up in Sactoe (bay area buddies that are members of Earths Widow, Bitter Fruit, and Primary Colors, all totally amazing gothy music projects).  The thing is though, I like the drawing so much I want to use it for something else too.  I'm thinking of  actually submitting to MRR, so these two might be the ones I send.

I made this screen print, oh, probably back in 2008 or so when I was living with my partner at the time, BA, and he taught me how to screen print, which resulted in me making various prints that got lost in time.  'Cept, this one.  Sophie held on to it and gave it to me the other day, which I plan on gladly sporting.  Isn't it so ridiculously bike punk?
