I love zines. I love the connections and bonds created with people all over the world that can eventuate through creating and sharing zines.

Myself, and my zine making comrades Jeremy Staples and Matthew Limmer have started a co-op—the Paper Cuts Collective. The three of us (collectively) have over twenty years of zine making trial and error experience between us.

Introducing (drum roll please):

Jeremy Staples who has latest project “Whenever I see a bearded hobo on the street, I’ll think of you and smile” on the go and once captained the Bizzo zine ship.

Matthew Limmer is an artist and makes Demolish zine. He also blogs: When Young Optimists Chase the Sun & Matt Limmer’s blog.

And then there’s me… yours truly!

We decided to combine our powers and work together—as we all know, working together can achieve great, great things! Resources and networks pooled and shared can generate fun times for all. We all share a passion for zines, art, good music and d.i.y.

Stay tuned for details of our joint zine launch coming up in August!
