Two zines

Two zines arrived from Scott Massey at Nohawk the other day with some of my work in them. RRR001, a collaborative book curated by Scott in response to Renewed-Reused-Recycled (RRR) and Earth Day. The other made for Roxy using Jeff Hornbaker's photographs, and elements collaged from Greg LaMarche, Andrew Holder and me. The collages were originally made to generate t-shirt designs for Roxy, but then turned into a little zine by Scott. You can see the whole thing here.
