ART ZINES

 

OBITUARY: A ZINE FOR ANIMALS I’ve BURIED

16 pages • 5” x 7” • risograph printed • 2017

A zine filled with drawings and writings about the roadkill and other dead creatures I’ve come across and held funerals for.

”a stranger helped bury you
carving a grave with the heel of his shoe
i guess compassion is contagious
but so is indifference”


 

you do not belong here

16 pages • 5” x 7” • risograph printed • 2019

A zine exploring our human alienation from wild environments: the ominous natural forces we’re ill-adapted to navigate, the devastated lifeforms that haunt us for our betrayal.⁣

”then the sudden drawing of blood, eyes that watch from the shadows,
the secret slickness of rock, the sound of teeth meeting bone,
the root that does not betray its looseness.
looking down to find quiet intruders on your body.”


 

You are not welcome here

16 pages • 5” x 7” • cyanotype and risograph editions • 2018

Drawings, poetry, and found text about the cruel indifference of humans towards the elimination of inconvenient animals.

”she checks them every morning in the summer,
takes a squirrel to her basement to drown,
hangs clean white sheets on the line to dry”


 

OLD GRAVES, NEW GRAVES

12 pages • 5” x 7” • risograph printed • 2015

A zine based on my experience exploring the eerie, gloomy shores, plains, and glaciers of Iceland in 2014.

”i don’t know the names of foreign birds
but i’m familiar with her surprise
at meeting a large pane of glass
and with her poorly-attended funeral”
