Kauffman and Jordin Isip.
Some time ago I had a series of hard drive failures that forced me to do a lengthy overhaul of my digital archives. In the process many of my ‘recovered’ files showed up as strange versions of their previous selves. This zine is an attempt to make good from bad and move forward from the wreckage. Full color, 20 pages, limited edition of 25, signed and numbered. Buy here –> Damaged Pixels Zine
Rich Jacobs is an old friend and an amazingly active guy. A long way back he asked me to send him some old skate zines and I did. Time passed and in an odd coincidence I ran into him at Printed Matter during his recent trip to new York to take down his 15th Move Show titled “There is Xerox on the insides of your eyelids”. To my happy surprise, some of my work was in this show along side some of the masters of the form. The show has been traveling around and will go to Holland next, so I’m told. Thanks Rich for including me.
|In the Fall of 2004 I was asked by the Industrial Design department at University of the Arts in Philadelphia to speak. My presentation, culled from powerpoint, is available here for your viewing pleasure. –> View milkcrate lecture here. The presentation was a hit, and the students asked a slew of questions afterwards.
|This is way long overdue on this site. Don Kahler made this video that shows some of the process and thought behind my milkcrate stage from the SPACE1026 ICA show earlier this year. Watch the video, and big thanks to Don Kahler for letting me post it. Small version (5.5 Mbs) Hi-Res (15.5 MBs)|
|One of the best things that I’ve gotten this year is this stapler. I know that doesn’t seem too exciting to most people. But, as a zine making person, staplers hold a special place in my heart. I’ve always used the long arm variety, and I don’t intend to give up on that trusty friend. But, this new guy and his compact, transformative magic will most definitely change my mobile work habits. I can throw this guy in my backpack with no worries. The only drawback is that this – it uses the compact No.10-1M mini staples. You can only get through 15 pages or so. I’m sure I’ll push that limit. All this and it’s cheap, under $10.|
|Milkcrate Digest #8 is out now. You can buy it here, or on the Milkcrate Digest website. This issue goes back to the zine roots with a all black and white contents, cardstock cover with spray paint pop color, and more content. (32 pages) This issue didn’t even take 5 years to make like #7. Get up on it.|
After over 12 years, Milkcrate #1 has been re-issued. This is the original photo project that turned into Milkcrate Digest. Crate things to do, Crate Session, Pop-up centerfold milkcrate, and the Thank You story. so get them now at the milkcrate digest store. Or at the store here.
|I’ve been hard at work on yet another new project. Zinebox.org. It’s a zine review and catalog site. The goal is to create a comprehensive archive of zines both past and present. If you are interested in contributing, drop me a line. I am currently looking for reviewers and sweet zine collections to get up on the site. At this time, I’m archiving my personal collection. There is a secondary effort of zinebox. The idea is that there would be free zine boxes located in multiple locations that offer a free trade zine system. Take a zine – leave a zine. More on this as it develops.|
After almost 12 years, Milkcrate #2 has been re-issued. This is a remaster, not just a simple re-copy. The cover is the same, from the original print run. 2-Color copy toner on baby blue cardstock. These won’t last too long, so get them now. Milkcrate #8 has undergone some technical testing, and hits the copy machine next week.
