Koshka Zine

this is one of the coolest things i have found on the internet recently, keep on doin what you're doin! from truelifecomix

Thanks so much! A new issue will be in production this summer, but previous issues are available at atelierk.bigcartel.com.

Thanks!!!


New issue 3 contributor Jānis Dzirnieks not only makes visual art but also videos. Here’s an awesome video he made for Boards.lv, a skateboarding shop in Riga. After another night of snowfall in Chicago it is a nice reminder of the springtime trees and flowers in Latvia—I can’t wait to go back!

I just finalized Laura ķeniņš’ interview for Koshka #3 and sent the files to the printer! Chicago Zine Fest, here I come!
Don’t forget, you can preorder a copy here and get it first! Issue #2 is also still available but issue #1 is now out of print! It will be available as a downloadable PDF soon.

goddamn…this is one of those drawings where things are going well and you are so freaked out the whole time that you’ll completely fuck it up. The likeness is still a bit off, but I never claimed to be a portrait artist! #drawing #putin #koshkazine View Larger

Koshka Zine #3 is allllllmoossst ready to go to the printer, and you can pre-order a copy now on BigCartel! All copies will ship in early March 2014. Pre-ordering helps me publish by providing funds for printing in advance of the actual printing, otherwise I end up paying $300+ out of pocket in one fell swoop. Yep, that’s the luxury of the self-publishing world! Any additional funds made will help cover shipping costs for contributors to receive their issues, most of whom are out of the US. So if you’re feeling extra generous, you can pick up some back issues or a tote bag or some art while you’re at it! Thanks in advance!!

I also added Chris Baird’s comic about the gay rights movement in Riga to the layout tonight. If you ever work in InDesign, you’ll know that I’m working with the large images first because they’re fast and easy.
These characters don’t have anything to do with Eastern Europe but hey, one of them is named Georg!

Being good and working on Koshka #3 a little bit everyday. I hope to be able to release the zine at least twice a year if this goes well—once around February and then probably again around August.
Today I laid out a gorgeous comic submitted by Anna Krzton from Poland! Check out her work, she is one to watch!

I did this few months ago for Napa Flipbook Competition. It was pretty fun.
