If I were to think of myself as the illustrative equivalent to BB King over the past six months, I'd end up singing, "The Cute is gone, the Cute is gone away." I haven't felt like working with over the top cute in a bit. Several of my friends have suggested that some of my drop and pipe pieces are still on the cute side, but I wonder how they are determining cute then. I really don't think of my machines as cute, but they are cartoony in a way, and that might begin the argument for cute machinery. I am not sure.
Today I spent putting together a new Mansruin Zine. Volume II is all printed out and I've trimmed and folded about 1/5 of them. Since I have been sending out the zines in sewn envelopes, I have really moved through the zines. I'm not sure which is the important part though.
Hope you dig it. Let me know if you would like one too.
