For every time I hear them say “get the fuck out of the way” I will defend my right of way. That heap of steel I’m gonna slay.

In case you didn’t know IUPUI is the least bike friendly place on the planet. Well it isn’t that bad but people are assholes and I have been getting kind of crazy lately. I’m not gonna sit through a two-hour math lecture then just come out on the street and wait for you to go by so I can get over. I am not gonna put up with honking either, seriously people the next person to honk at me is going to get a lot more than a piece of my mind.  This back patch is a little extreme but you gotta be a little extreme to get from A to B. This is printed on a pretty inconsistent fabric so some of em aren’t gonna look perfect, however all of them will look punk. This is about 13″ x 10″ linocut patch, thin fabric, vegan oil based ink. Swoop one at my little punk store. Oh yeah, lyrics by Punch inspiration by fucking R.A.M.B.O.

As most of you know I have been working on a zine all summer. Not that it took all summer to work on it but I made it in real-time, took a picture glued it down, y’all understand. This zine is unlike anything I’ve ever done. The best way to describe it is a D.I.Y coffee table book. A punk house art book. I hope that makes some sense. It wasn’t that hard to make, it’s not that original, and it’s not even that cool, it just makes me ( and like to think others) happy. If something can do that what else matters. Anyway what I decided to do was take the amazing experiences I had this summer and do my best to show you it in my eyes. I took a collection of pictures of my friends and I having the time of our lives. It’s a mix of the stuff you love so much because you can rarely do and the things you do so much you love it. I also took quotes from movies, songs, and people who just are really rad. Whether they make me break down crying or laughing they are pretty special. This zine is something that is really special for me for a couple of reasons. One because this summer was really good one, I think I made a lot of changes I had been trying to make for the past couple years. It reminds me that for the first time in a while my life is something a bit more special than the average one. It also is, as the tittle says, A fanzine about friendship. It is a way to show my friends I’m a big fan. It is a way for me to pay tribute to the music, places, and people who are special to me. I really hope you will buy or trade for one, this is one of those things I want everyone to have because I  think it can really put a smile on people’s faces. Sorry I have to charge for it, I promise it is only for more zines and for them to go farther away.

Also if you order one I will give you plenty of extras rad stuff, old zines, personalized mixtapes, and lots of love.

UPDATED! Every zine comes with a free copier patch!!!! Stolen Copies save lives! 

I am actually not trying to look sad, i’m scowling down roxy for not getting in the picture. Promise.
Sorry I haven’t been posting all that much I’ve been busy busy busy. I have been acting like Ben Walter and sewing things on to all of my clothes. I also have been sending out things to awesome people all over the country and that is the best feeling ever.  I made a set to show how I have spent the past couple days of my life, enjoy! And another page of my zine which is almost done!

So I live next to an abandon mall. It is actually about to become the new police station I guess…. Anyway some crew came and got nasty on the walls.  Some of the stuff is just beyond insane, best part of this isn’t a legal wall. This is where it belongs, not on canvas or in pizza shops. It belongs in the streets. Anyway I wanted to show off how pretty these homeboys and homegirls made my neighbor hood.

And of coarse. 

What’s the fucking deal. Well I did that today, what a fucking waste of life this is.

They gave me a cup so I can remember I went to real college once I quit lying to myself and go to art school.

Since I’m in the middle of a lot of things I will tease you with a page from my zine. It’s cute.

Oh did I mention cops are in the same school as me? Stay strong people of London.

So remember when I did that wood cut a while back? Well I finally printed it. Because of the texture it prints horribly which is kinda cool. Each one I do will have a different quote. Also I will only make these by request, so if you want a shitty print of my face get a hold of me.

Also, another page of my zine.

This is kinda my favorite page so far, I don’t see that changing.

Remember when I use to make zines? Well I’m doing that again. Only this time, it will be fun. I decided to make a suicide (the drink) zine. It’s going to be a mix of fanzines, art zines, and a journal. It’s basically gonna be pictures of my friends and I with awesome quotes glued on them. I really love this idea, it combines my love for having rad friends with my love for writing things on stuff. I’m gonna post a page of it every couple days until its done. I hope you all love me enough to pay a couple bucks for it : ).

XVXO homies,

Matt.
