I just finished up with the first pass of layout for the new Stolen Sharpie Revolution! I still have to add and tweak a few things. It looks like the page count is going to be 152 or 160, depending on if there is much difference in cost. Stoked to get to this point!
Go help fund the kickstarter! We’re 10 days in and I’ll be bugging your for 20 more days about this!

When I was 15 “Stolen Sharpie Revolution” made my head explode. Seriously, I mean that. It opened me up to so much and turned me onto so much other small press stuff. It was seriously one of the first times I remember getting excited about projects and bands and punk and zines and all of the stuff that I still get excited about. Consider sending some money to help get it going!

I got my copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution in, I think, 2005 or 2006. I was helping out a little bit at an anarcho-collective thing in West Chicago. It was by absolute chance that I found it.
It was a pocket sized book that had a wealth of information regarding all kinds of things. Stuff like how to bind a zine, how to block print, how to silkscreen, and a bunch of other great stuff. Odds are they have something for you, for whatever your DIY project may be.
I encourage everyone to help this Kickstarter out. 

Thanks so much for the kind words!

I have a really exciting Spoonie Living announcement for y’all! When I started on my 6-month medical leave from work, one of my goals was to create a zine for new spoonies, to help them hit the ground running as they begin their chronic illness experience. I’m calling it Chronically Badass, and it’s finally done!
Here’s what I cover inside:
Spoon theory
Getting answers
Working with doctors
Work &amp; school
Friends &amp; family
Reactions
Mental health
Coping strategies
Online communities
Mobility
It’s free for download right here (although you’re welcome to donate if you like), so be sure to check it out! Just set the price to $0, and the credit card fields will disappear.
Please also reblog and spread the word so others can find and benefit from this zine.
