Sticky Zine

My friend arrived from London on Wednesday last and had to experience the 47 degree heat with us. We are all very saddened and shocked at the terrible fires just north of us in Melbourne and others around the country. I have donated a number of gocco prints to the new etsy shop set up for the bush fire appeal called OzBushfireAppeal. Etsians donate their work and all the money made goes to the red cross bush fire appeal. They might not be listed yet, but keep looking, there are plenty of other great items for sale. I'll be donating an etching also.

This week I've been making a zine for Sticky's target 144. To be honest I'm not entirely sure what it's all about, but the zine shop Sticky Institute (in the subway under Flinder's Street Station) is trying to get 144 zines made in 144 hours and then selling them at the... hold on, I'm not even sure where they are selling them. I've been trying to find out on the net, but nothing seems very clear.
Anyway, here is my zine, after numerous paper cuts and a chipped tooth. It's made of photocopied dry point etchings of all the instruments in our house. After going looking round the house for them I kept finding new ones Jeremy has hidden away!

My pile of 25 editions waiting to go to Sticky Institute on Friday

I'll be heading to Sticky definitely to pick one up - they look gorgeous. I am also heading over to the bushfire appeal Etsy shop, I have been meaning to buy one of your gorgeous prints, so hopefully there is one left.

Thanks for contributing to this, so great to see our community respond so strongly.
