i'm too lazy/broke to ever fold my own zine but i write a blog and am down to write for anyone else's zine. i'm all for it and if i wasn't such a piece of shit i'd have been making my own for yrs instead of occasionally contributing to other peoples'. SAUCE is rad, COMETBUS ain't about skating but it's prolly the best/longest running one. i've done stuff for EXCESS! outta wyoming and 'the loin's mouth' in SF [that one wasn't skate related either].

Avantafro is a conceptual artist. he is involved in so many cool projects , fells like willie wonka is taking you for a ride in his fantastic zine factory !

his design studio makes lots of photo and collage zines. you can see some of them here

http://www.avantafromicropress.tumblr.com/ (http://www.avantafromicropress.tumblr.com/)

in my humble opinion they evoke that fancy anarchy tradition from L.A.s NOMAG, with pretty disturbing takes on reallity !

heres a real hot link


 
ABSOLUTELLY ZIPPO chronicles the east bay scene ,from the dawn of Gilman Street Project to the punk explosion of the 90s to  everything happening right now!

a book collects in 400 pages all issues from 1988 to 1998 ,

its beautiful photocopy aesthetics and brilliant written articles make this zine a must to all anarchy lovers  !

 trades or $1 for most....issue #49 and 42 is $2...then the postage is about $1 and add about 50 cents more multiple issues.
For international orders i think just add $1 to the postage.

HIRNPLATZT from Austria releases high luxury comix  in very limited runs . here are some of them :

VICTOR DUNKELS NECROFIXION is scary. feels like you are doing something really wrong and evil just by looking at it.disturbing revelations of black arts leading into eternal sin, truly inspired by the devil . this cat  from spain is the next Goya no doubt about it. a few centuries ago and they would have thrown him in the fire !

B.I.BURKE by MICHAEL OLIVO is an epic 50 page comix without words, an experimental take on rambo in his first night as a gay in the army tripping on acid ! absolutelly insane!

FIGHTING FOR FOOLISM  by JOHANNES STAHL looks like art from  medieval grimoires with some references from the future in them  . a beautiful collection of photos drawings and collages  .


SNOW & CO by DIETER VDO is a weird gang from hollow earth creatures and their delightful adventures  fighting for good vs evil.so much fun in the details  great art , great characters, one of the best comics ever !

you can learn more about them here

I'm trying to put a photo zine together of my skate crew/artsy friends in SF, I have no idea where to start as far as the physical process of making a zine goes. I'm looking for some good/decent quality paper & printing, you guys think it's better to gather everything myself and do it DIY style or make it happen with a publishing company/printing press? There's a place called photoworks that can do it that runs around $110 for about 20 copies in black and white, seems fair?

That seems fair if that's what your looking for, to me the whole fun of putting zines together is laying it all out yourself. However if you are looking for something that looks professional then the learning curve might be pretty steep.

Try downloading Adobe creative suite and messing around with InDesign. You can download version 2 or whatever for free online, a quick google search should help you track it down and from there a few YouTube tutorials should point you in the right direction.

I can help you out with any indesign or layout issues.


This thread got me a little inspired. I'm thinking about making a photo zine in a few months if I can come up with some good shots. I design booklets and shit all day at work, but I never get to do anything for myself really, so a zine sounds kinda fun.

the big apple has a great line of innovative zines and nobody exemplifies this better than MICHELLE SPADAFORE ! i will let her introduce herself :

= My grandmother was the original zinester. She d take me with her on errands and out to Chinese food. One of her regular errands was the local copy store where she would print up these little booklets which included her poems and drawings. We d go to the post office and she d mail out the booklets to family and friends. So, I feel like I'm carrying on a tradition somehow. Hope you dig it.=

well how cool is that !?!

HAIKU & HOLGA is the supreme delight ! Old school cut and paste mixed media. Full color version.block printing.a compilation of word snapshots and Holga photos make the magic happen !

what a trip !

i was hooked after the first line !!!

the melodies she creates are amazing you will naturally sing them in awe and love her sweet music , reading these poems late at night in silence !

 and the images are so beautiful and dreamy !

i cant make them full justice !

any shoegazer fan out there waiting for the album of the year from my blood valentine or robin guthrie will get a fix out of this oustanding zine !you guys should really check it out this is really inspiring!

zines for zines or $2

hey mike remember a florida cartoonist who got A restraining order in the 90s whats his name mike deanna  something like that
Michael Loughlin
23:21
Michael Loughlin
i'm not sure, was he drawing bestiality or something?
Brix Skwikz
23:21
Brix Skwikz
i cant seem to find it
this guy s been wiped out of the planet
Michael Loughlin
23:22
Michael Loughlin
i think i know who you're referring to. he had a piece of the book 'apocalypse culture' by adam parfrey but i just tried finding about the cartoonist and nothing came up.
gg allin and jim goad were also in there as i recall.
Brix Skwikz
23:25
Brix Skwikz
yeah bro lets track him down he s gotta be somewhere
Michael Loughlin
23:26
Michael Loughlin
heh, maybe contact adam parfrey at feral house? i know jim goad mentioned the guy because he sorta got charged w/ thought crime or something. like you're sposedta have freedom of speech. goad either wrote about him on his website or name dropped him in taki's magazine. not recently but maybe in the past yr or so.
Brix Skwikz
23:28
Brix Skwikz
yah bro you are in the right track
Michael Loughlin
23:29
Michael Loughlin
goad went to prison for hitting his girlfriend but mostly cause he wrote a zine talkin about 'let's hear it for violence against women' and made a bunch of feminists mad. i haven't read apocalypse culture since the mid 90s but i feel like everyone who was in it had a rough go of it afterwards.

wow man we should bring that to light !
maybe someone on slap can help us out

Bumping in case anyone checks this thread. I made a zine if anyone is down to trade.

I finished up my first photo zine not too long ago. Its 24 pages + cover, 5.5x8.5", full bleed, laser printed, hand cut and stapled, all that great stuff. Edition of 10. If anyone is interested in one, I'd be down to trade for zines, prints, drawings, or anything else you guys make. I have a few left, so if you're interested pm me your address and I'll drop one in the mail for you.

How do you guys get the layout for your zines?
is it something done in photoshop/illustrator?

I have no idea how to use either of those things, I can barely use MS Paint.

I'm thinking of making a rough fold and cut zine (2x8 panel a3 size paper) and stapling them together.
laying out the paper, pasting the images on and then photocopying that however many times feels necessary

it'll probably be super sketchy but we will see how it turns out.

hopefully you guys can help out so I can make it better

How do you guys get the layout for your zines?
I just messed around to see what worked and what didn't. Looked at older Thrashers, Transworlds, and porn mags to get some ideas. A lot of cut and paste but the beauty of it is u can do whatever the hell u desire.

Was in the middle of making one (20 pages done) two years ago n  had my kid. Since then, the project has been at a standstill on account of I don't skate with anybody anymore and my bike rides are severely limited (Used to just run into people sessioning spots, ask permission, then take pictures). Shit, I got a pic of Tom K's first Zero ad just riding along the beach trail before work, Even got a Phanner photo a year before he was in any mags or videos.

Looked through whats done recently and decided to do it more like a skate/bike riding thing. Planning a ride from Long Beach to Oceanside (The Orange County ride) soon and see how things work out.

Glad to see this bumped. Just the other day I found an old skate zine I made for college, and while it was fun to make the content was very rushed and suited to appeal to a class rather than a wide skate audience. Been trying to brainstorm what kinda stuff I would write about if I were to make another.

Ideally you want to use a page layout program like indesign. I'd discourage anyone from using photoshop because that just seems like a nightmare. Illustrator would suffice, but only if you don't have access to indesign.

The thing with zines is they can be as rough or as polished as you want. you could take a few sheets of 11x17" paper, fold them into a book, then take prints of whatever you want as your content and tape or glue them to the pages to make a master copy, then photocopy that a bunch of times. It might take some trial and error, but you could do that without even opening a design program. For something more polished, you definitely want to use indesign or something similar. Set up your document with a page count in a multiple of 4, make sure you have facing pages turned on, decided weather or not you want your content to bleed (more work and possible more expensive if you do) and make sure you add at least a .25" bleed to your document. Then fill the pages with content and print using the print booklet feature. Make sure you select to have your crop marks and bleed marks printing and know that you need to print on a larger size sheet if you're going to be cutting it down. Then it's just scoring the pages down the center so they fold easier, cutting them out, then binding the book together.

If anyone needs more help, shoot me a PM.

Ah cool to see this thread, I just started work on a zine of my own. I did a quick sort of mock-up one just by hand on some 8"x11" paper folded over into a booklet. All hand drawn and written. I'd like to make a nice glossy one sooner rather than later, I need to look into costs etc. though. I have a feeling I'm going to lose money in the long run, but whatever I suppose. ART AIN'T ABOUT THE MONEY MAN.

Haven't put out a zine in awhile. For couple of issues, I actually had them profesionally printed but I really prefer the hand cut and paste and photo copy approach these days.

http://foulweather.blogspot.com (http://foulweather.blogspot.com)

I'm down to trade. I' ve got copies of issues 2,3,4 of my zine foulweather. My last issue had a skate related story in it and my attempt at a horror short story... plus some other crap...
