6-29-15 Trying to keep sAnE! Update on my Zine

Hello Readers!

I’m trying to keep from going crazy juggling all the amazing projects I’ve got going on right now!

In the service of that effort, I’m designating my weekly posts as follows:

Mondays: I’ll write posts as usual about photography, film making and creativity!

Fridays: Now designated “Casual Fridays” – I’ll write posts with comedy in mind!

What’s going on with my Photo Zine?

Many of you may remember that I’ve been working on a photo zine. It contains NYC snapshots, including amusing poster graffiti I’ve seen in the subway. I’m very excited about it. The delay has been in my trying to determine what type printed text to use – computer typed, typewritten or handwritten. Well, after visiting ABC NO RIO’S zine library in New York’s Lower East Side, I’ve decided to just hand write my prose!

By the way, go check ABC No Rio out! It’s like traveling back in time to the 1980s, and they have amazing cheap rates for using their darkroom. They’re all about supporting the Arts. I’m going to go back either this week or next to learn how to develop 35mm film by hand.

Anyway, I’m aiming to have my zine done by the end of the summer. Heck, I’ve evenlooked into buying my own copy machine so I can start printing my own zines. But we’ll see if that’s the way to go.

That’s my update for now. I hope you all have a great, productive week.

Thanks again to all my faithful readers for supporting this blog with your visits!
