Zinefest 2012 Flyer

Hey all,

Here’s an interview I conducted with the rad people of Twin Cities Zinefest. This is their main site.

My friends Kevin Hagen and Guy Wagner will be tabling with me. We have quite a bit to access this year. We’re nearing 15 zines in complete form with many more on the way. If we get it done in time, the first installment of Three Finger Umbrella will be on hand in its 8.5″ by 14″ splendor. No promises. But perhaps. Much to do. Much to do.

Here are the detats for Zinefest 2012:

When: Saturday, September 22, 2012: 12pm-6pm

Where: Powderhorn Park Recreational Center, 3400 15th Ave S., Minneapolis MN 55407

If you click on the picture above you can get the flyer PDF if you feel like spreading the word further.

Hope to see you there. It’s free!!!

Twin Cities Veg Fest Wrap Up

 Mescal Cover                 Cocaine Cover

Mescal Cover                                              Cocaine Cover

The Roosterhouse Ideas table at Twin Cities Veg Fest was a success. Zines were sold and people were excited about the artwork and stories. I also made a few connections with people willing to do future zine covers.

At Veg Fest, Roosterhouse unveiled three new zines. Kevin Hagen’s “Breaking Away from the Herd” series continues with an installment called “Cocaine”. This fully illustrated issue focuses on Hagen’s cocaine addled days in the 1980s and its effect on friends, family, and self-perception. Cover (see above) by Tyler Hagebusch. Collage work by Karl Noyes.

Two more installments of Franz Fleinsasser’s non-fiction “Auslander” series were also debuted at VegFest. “The Fox” contains vignettes about a child being exposed to animal abuse and death. Fully illustrated with plenty of collages with foxes in them.
Cover was done by David Ball. Internal collage work by Karl Noyes.

“Mescal” also made its debut at VegFest. The story is about two friends and their experiences with mescaline and the transformative effects it has on walking in the woods, driving, and deer. This is an adventurous zine complete with a panda, ice bergs, and a coyote assassin. Additionally, “Mescal” features copy machine zoomography images of an old American quilt.
Cover (see above) by David Ball. Internal collage work by Karl Noyes.

“Midwest Leafleting Tour” was also previewed at VegFest with expected publication date of July 20th. We accepted pre-orders at VegFest. Karl Noyes and Ben Acaso go on a 1200 mile trip in a Mercedes fueled by waste grease. “Midwest Leafleting Tour” contains essays by Ben and Karl detailing the trip and exploring vegetarian experiences.

Thanks to Compassionate Action for Animals for making Veg Fest happen. And thanks to my friend Guy Wagner for helping me table and showing off his bee prints. Thanks to the Seward Cafe for a delicious lunch.
