DIY Aye 2010 - Invitation to Zinesters!

DIY AYE was absolutely lovely last year, with loads of people getting crafty in the star & shadow, making zines, constructing dildos, learning how to do this & that & the other!

So some of us are going to put it on again in 2010, on Saturday the 1st May!
It will be donation-only, full of workshops & films & music & doing it together according to the age old anarchist ethos of DIY!

One element that I want to organise is a zine fair, so as some people are making zines, others can be browing them.

I realise some people can't travel all the way up north, or all the way from wherever their heartland is, so I am inviting people (you!) to send me a bundle of their zines for me to display & hopefully sell for them (you!) on a couple of big tables. I will personally guarantee sale-or-return, and will eagerly do swaps of my zines, & whatever it takes to get a good range.
So let me know if you fancy sending some zines for my table!
& if you wanna come for a visit to Newcastle, I'll put you up with me!

After the Equinox, before Beltane.

Pics found on flickr.

My true beauty revealed.

Picture what I drew.

And if you look very closely at the wall, kind of off-centre to the right, you'll see it in THE REAL WORLD here.

Shortly afterwards, drinking with Martin & Paul (top right). & what looks like a temporary Jack.

This flickr-searching is fun, it's like doing an easter egg hunt.

Here is me top centre with my leg at a suggestive angle.

A wor diarist's diary, now missing.

We've made a zine trail for the Star & Shadow

And I scanned a few recent doodles at the library today.

2. Drink and Draw at the Tyneside Cinema on Friday:
(I also did a pic of some of the 24 hour comic-makers, here.)
3. From my sketchpad:

4. Flyer for the creative crafty sessions at the Star & Shadow:
(we didn't properly advertise for this first one, but we DID manage to do the zine trail)
