This was a comic that i did for the Static Zine. Static Zine is this cool little collective from Toronto who make kick ass zines. I really like them, cuz they are hard working peeps who make fun (print!) publications and give them out for free! (i really respect that!) I first discovered them at Sky Blue Sky Sandwich Co., while eating some lunch, and as soon as i saw it, i knew i had to get a page in one of their books. This issue was a tribute to Fanzines, so everyone had to make an article about something they “fan” over. Getting to contribute to a zine was already making me feel really nostalgic (and old..), so i wrote about another love of mine that spawned around the same teenaged time in my life, mixtapes. I remember bits of high school where i’d make really elaborate mixtapes, while laying around reading punk zines. These were my formative years. This was important!!!
I really liked how this comic came out, it was the first one i did working on a larger scale. It’s also one of the few comics i did not letter by hand. And i threw in some halftone effects to make it look older. So, if you are in Toronto, keep your eyes peeled for Static Zine #5 if you want a print copy of this comic! Or, get in touch, and i can sell you a large scale print of the story for $15! Whatta deal!
