Category Archives: Zine A Day
SPACE JAM was a 4-day event during Mission Creek, occupying the area above the Deadwood bar in Iowa City. Included was a family portrait studio, zine-making supplies and a copy machine, and a zine-reading lounge accompanying the exhibit of zines by many artists (including tons contributed by me from our Zine A Day project).

Every day in 2008 some friends and I constructed a zine. Usually this entailed a booklet a few pages in length of collage art or some other sort of creation. We started the project with the idea that being a leap year, 2008 had an extra day, an extra reason to express ourselves and explore new avenues of what is or what isn’t. Take a stroll through the archives and check out what we were doing on your birthday a few years ago.
We had a few public exhibits at various locations: the University of Iowa’s Blank Honor’s Center; HOUSE HOUSE in Murfreesboro, TN; Home Cooked Art Show at the Glory Hole house in Iowa City; the back porch of Andolini’s Pizza place in Charleston, SC; Arts Iowa City Underground; White Rabbit, IC,IA.
Halloween Zine A Day was a dance party in Brock’s basement with performances by snma, BigSad, and a DJ.
The BigSad performance was eventually released as the second side of a tape on High Density Headache.
