THE EVERYTHING SET: EVERY ZINE I EVER MADE (2018)

This is The Everything Set, a box set of every zine I ever created.

Inside you will find a mixture of paintings, drawings, cell phone photos, photobooth strips, poems and stories. Some zines came to me in dreams, conversations or bolts of lightning. Others were carefully mulled over for years or generations.
 
I love putting ideas into pictures and words, and then putting those pictures and words into manageable sequences, chapters and pages. Bound between covers, things that were scary become something else. Resentments and paranoias get transformed. Problems that seemed too complicated to solve begin to untangle. Tangles themselves become beautiful.
