Now Playing Tracks

UPDATE 2/17

Roots of Hope #3 will be available from the following distros: Black Light Diner, Stranger Danger, Click Clack, False Start, and Twelve OH Two in Canada and hopefully I’ll be sending some to Sticky Institute in Australia. Maybe other distros in the future too. 

The initial print run of 150 is down to about 20 so if yo are interested in purchasing one or trading for something please contact me BEFORE WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 23rd. 

Otherwise, I will possibly have zines available for distro, trade and sale in the Spring
