The fruit of a collaborative zine workshop at Pop Hop, this baby is all about the summer and is available starting today until the end of summer itself.  Odes to sunscreen and roadtrips are just a few of the treasures inside! Get ’em while they’re hot.

Thanks for the free coffee, LA Coffee Club!

Nice one, LA Coffee Club! These awesome downtown coffee purveyors offered to supply presenters with free coffee in the morning. What a great bunch of folks!

We’re also really interested in their Draw Coffee contest, where they invite people to doodle online here or at the LA Zine Fest and submit them for a chance to win free coffee!

Two-two-two times the fun! : Today’s L.A. Zine Week events

We’re very excited that The Last Bookstore is going to start carrying zines.  In fact, we are so excited, we are rolling out the welcome wagon! Join the LAZF organizers in welcoming the zine section to the store Thursday, Feb. 9 during ArtWalk! This means that besides the LAZF, there will be coffee from the new DBA Pour Over Bar in the store and all the regular ArtWalk madness, like food trucks and free wine and cheese somewhere.

The L.A. Zine Fest organizers will be passing out flyers and postcards, and may have candy!

If ArtWalks aren’t your thing, consider dropping by the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts, where Daryl Gussin and Rebecca Inducil are teaching you how to make a zine for FREE! This workshop will take you through not only the mechanics of assembly but also help you develop content to fill your beautiful zine pages.
