Another Fucking Zine.

with one comment

IMG_1484Who needs another fucking zine?  Not you, obviously.

Too bad.

Because in a world already overrun with zines I humbly offer up yet another. Mind you, this is not just any old run-of-the-mill zine. This is a zine that positively revels in it’s own pointlessness.

This slim and utterly superfluous volume is represents a compilation of hand drawn lists and charts, containing a wide variety of spurious information all of which has been fabricated out of thin air by the author, (me).

It is a veritable cornucopia of misleading, disparaging and deceitful details almost none of which bare even the slightest relationship with any known reality.

How you can resist such a thing?

Well obviously you can’t. Especially when you realize that each and every one of these one hundred and twenty individually incoherent editions has been beautifully risographed in delightful teal colored ink, comes with a hand-printed letterpress cover and is individually numbered by the artist, (me). Plus they all contain a moderately thrilling ‘artistic addition’, which can found lurking somewhere near the back.

This is the kind of individually applied ‘artistic addition’ you can expect in every edition*. *(Actual quality of addition may vary.)

Different colors, different covers. Each hand printed on the letterpress. Why? Who knows.

Every edition individually numbered. Every back cover either letterpress printed, or collaged by the artist, who is clearly not right in the head.

So obviously the question on everyone’s lips is “how do I get my sweaty little digits on one of these peculiar publications?”.  Well wonder no longer, dear reader. These oddities will become available on the opening night of my latest ‘art’ show, coincidentally titled “Some Things That May Be Helpful At Some Point”, which takes place at The Compound Gallery on the evening of October 21st, 2017.

I realize, of course, that most of you will have better things to do with your time than travel all the way to Oakland to stand around gawping at walls covered in my delusional daubings. In which case the zine will also be available for purchase through, the miracle of the internet, at The Compound Gallery’s online Art Shop*.

Don’t miss out. This is the zine that will finally make your life complete.

*Not sure exactly when online purchase will be available, but I’ll update this post as soon as I figure that out. Which is obviously just a thinly disguised ruse to have you check back here regularly.

Apologies For The Late Notice.

Apology Number 40. Installed directly onto a wall at The Compound Gallery.

Okay I admit it, this is a very late post. I don’t know why I find it so hard to update this blog when I regularly update my Tumblr and Flickr pages. I have some kind of mental block about WordPress. However, based on the principal that Late is better than Never, heres the NEWS.

Of most immediate importance is the fact that I have a solo exhibition of all of my Apology Drawings on right now at The Compound Gallery in Oakland, CA. I’m afraid the opening reception has come and gone, but the gallery is open Thursday – Sunday 12 noon to 6 pm, and the show is on until Sunday June 9th. This is also the date of The Closing Tea, where I’ll be delivering what has optimistically been labeled an ‘Artist Talk’. And, if you can’t make that, you can watch the whole debacle streaming LIVE on The Compound Gallery website. You can even send in awkward questions, in real time, for me to ignore.

Details of what you've missed and what's still to come!

If you can’t wait till then to get answers to your many questions you might find they have already been answered in this interview about the show which appeared on Jeremyriad.com. There’s even a little Vine video of me in action.

I sincerely hope you can make along to the show, but if your impressively hectic schedule doesn’t allow it, you can still buy a little Apology of your own right now at the Compound Online Shop. I’ve also produced a couple of limited runs of Apology letter press prints which are for sale at a very reasonable prices at the show, and probably a bit later online.

Not only that but visitors are welcome to leave their own contribution on the fabulously interactive Apology Wall.

I’m sorry, but how can you resist this?

Go ahead. Apologize.

Go ahead. Apologize.
