Hello, hello!

I’m working on a new zine and thought you guys could help me out! ▰˘◡˘▰

It’s going to be a little guide about those things that once lost/used, are impossible to get back. So far I’ve thought of things like baby teeth, tea bags, eyelashes…

What can you come up with? 

Things to do before Atlanta

- finish some new songs and maybe a demo disc
- make more copies of my last live recording to have with me
- finish the gasa zine
- maybe work on another dear America zine
- lock down who I’m gonna hang out with and see in Atlanta and who im staying with and all that
- maybe figure out a hike or two do to while I’m down there. Any suggestions on where to hole between richmond and Atlanta are welcome. The more photogenic the better!

FIGHT! zine Kickstarter launches this week!

Hey guys! I started the FIGHT! zine project back in 2013 and I am finally ready to launch the Kickstarter campaign to get this zine made. I was really ill for a majority of 2014 and it pushed the book onto the back burner while I dealt with other stuff.

For those of you who don’t know what the project is, FIGHT! is a zine which invites artists to create an original female fighting game character. The zine is curated by me, (Jenn Woodall). Each artist is assigned a page of a spread with a direction to orient their character towards, and the rest is up to them! So each spread of the zine is a versus match between 2 amazing female fighters. I am incredibly excited about this project as it is basically everything I love put into a zine. The artist line-up is really amazing, including the talents of:

Sam Bosma, Ze Burnay, Kali Ciesemier, Madeleine Flores, Andrea Kalfas, Guillaume Singelin, Stefie Zohrer, Kat Verhoeven, Stefan Tosheff, Patrick Carson Sparrow, Jenn Woodall, Trevor Henderson, Annie Stoll, Kevin Stanton, Schnekk, Kristen Acampora, Abby Boeh, Caitlin Rose Boyle, Alan Brown, Jenny Zych, Rachel Kahn, Baptiste Pagani, Kyle Fewell, Babs Tarr, Julian Callos, Jeanne D’Angelo, Jimmy Giegerich, Joanna Krotka, Dilraj Mann, Ralph Niese, John Lang, Paulina Ganucheau, Jordan Rosenberg, Valentin Seiche and Mathilde Kitteh!

The zine will be available as a reward for backing the Kickstarter campaign or you can pick up a copy from TCAF this May! This volume is titled ROUND 1 which will be followed by ROUND 2 and FINAL ROUND.

Thank you to all the artists for their fantastic contributions and their support! And thanks to everyone who is excited for this project and has gotten the word out!
