Hey. How are you? Did you do something new with your hair? Oh. Well, it looks great anyway. But enough about you. Let’s talk about me.
So over the past couple of months I went through a bit of a creative funk. I had a hard time making anything I was stoked on. But, for Christmas I drew a bunch of portraits for friends and family members and it got me stoked on making things again. And I thought about all of the stuff I accomplished over the past year, and I’m pretty fucking proud of myself. So, I’m gonna pat myself on the back here. Hopefully at least you’ll see some stuff you haven’t seen before or something, so it isn’t entirely gratuitous.
-I participated in the 2013 Alt Press Fest at the Salt Lake City Main Library. -I won the City Weekly Arty award for Best Graphic Novel/Zine for Super Cool & Stuff 2. -Super Cool & Stuff 2 was reviewed in SLUG Magazine #299 and Xerograpy Debt #34. -Started doing webcomics for the amazing magazine Razorcake. -Did a ton of show posters, designed a logo for a local podcast, and made spoke cards for a charity bike ride.
Here’s a poster that I never posted to Tumblr for some reason.
But anyway. It was a pretty good year. I’m really proud of all the things I accomplished and very grateful to the people who have helped me along the way and appreciate the things I make.
I have some really cool things planned for next year and a bunch of goals I hope to accomplish. If you’re still reading this you rule, an you’re my new favorite person. I hope your new year is awesome.
Hey everyone! So MRR's been reviewing zines probably longer than any of us have been alive hahaha! Lately the submissions we have been getting have been dwindling, but I know there are a ton of really awesome zines out there!
