All Things Ordinary #2 now available

Since All Things Ordinary #1 was all about the last month I spent in Buffalo, NY, issue #2 is a collection of some things that I experienced in the first few months living in Portland, OR. Everything from donating plasma, getting a job at a food cart, and the fun times I had at the 2009 Portland Zine Symposium.

32 pages- black and white photocopied with 100% recycled paper, with green cardstock cover. quarter sized (5.5″ x 4.25″)

Cover was drawn by Ramsey Beyer: http://www.everydaypants.com

ATO #2 is $3.00 ppd to the USA. Click here to pay with paypal.

I also love trading zines, but when sending me a zine for trade make sure to note that. Also, a letter would be nice too!  Send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order  to:

You can also buy my zines on my Etsy Shop.

I’ve Been Blogged!

The IPRC just featured All Things Ordinary #1 in their “made at the IPRC” blog.  You can check out the post here.

In other zine related news, i currently have writers block so i’m stuck at 19 pages still.  I did however get a sneak peak at the cover which is being drawn by a friend of mine and it looks really awesome! I can’t wait to see the final product.

My housemate James and i had another zine making night tonight.  We got off to a late start because he overslept, but we worked on our individual zines for a good 3-4 hours.  I can’t speak for him, but tonight was really productive for me.  I printed and laid out two stories i had written for All Things Ordinary #2.  The first was 9 pages and the 2nd ended up being 5 pages.  Combined with the 5 pages i laid out during the first zine making night, ATO #2 is currently at 19 pages!  In the process, i finished off two glue sticks as you can see in the photo.  Now i need to write more this next week.  I already have some ideas on what i’m going to write next so it shouldn’t be too hard.

I also need to buy more gluesticks!

My house mates and I had a zine making night tonight.  It has been a very productive night for me.  I started out by organizing my clip art in my newly acquired accordion folder.  Then i decided to go through and cut out zine backgrounds from various pages i have saved from magazines.  Once all that was set, i finally started printing out the text to one of the stories for All Things Ordinary #2.  This issue is going to be all stories of things that have happened since i’ve been living in Portland.  I have 3 stories completely written thus far and printed and laid out the first one tonight, How My Bad Brains Tattoo Got Me a Job.  In my head i’ve decided my deadline is the first week of February, but I don’t know how realistic that is.  I have 5 pages done so far (this zine is going to be quarter sized just like #1).  I want it to be longer than the first issue (which is 24 pages) so I’m aiming for at least 32 pages, but hopefully more.  I still have lots of stories that i want to write, or could write about if i need to.  It feels good to have glue on my fingers again.
