FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE by Paul D’Elia
Paul D’Elia is the artist behind SCREENIN 4 A CHANGE Studios out of Los Angeles, CA. The effort started as a screen printing experiment with gig posters during college to help promote and give back to the DIY punk music scene. Paul grew up calling that scene his home and it remains the source for much of his inspiration today. Over the past 7 years “Screenin 4 A Change” has transitioned from a small idea into a full fledge artistic perspective that is both exciting and provocative. In this evolution he’s expanded his mediums to include drawings, collages and paintings along with screen prints. His work has been displayed in various galleries and shows around the world and has been included in books and magazines.
Brunch! Magazine was created by two of my favorite people ever: Brian Lucett and Andy Anderson. The zine ran for a year and contained consistently hilarious articles, comics, recipes, lost cat flyers, and other oddities. BOOKMACHINE is probably the only place in the world (aside from Brian’s apartment) where you can pick up every single issue of Brunch! Brian and Andy were also hugely influential in making The Nerdy Thursday Variety Show what it is today. Brian and Andy have since parted ways. Andy writes books about sexy tourism, and Brian helps run the BUNK zine.

This is a zine edited by Jesse La Tour about how the corporate music industry takes good bands, commodifies them, and turns them into shitty bands. It’s called The Corporate Music Monster: The Story of Good Bands Who Now Suck and Other Writings. This limited edition zine features articles about Metallica, Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, Kings of Leon, U2, and other sell-outs. The articles are all about the perilous relationship between big business and musical art. This zine is available at BOOKMACHINE.
COLORISH DREAMS by A’Misa Chiu
Colorish Dreams is the brainchild of artist/writer A’Misa Chiu. The zine is the result of her blog, COLORISH DREAMS.
She writes: “The blog colorish dreams started because I grew tired of keeping my doodles and writings cooped up in journals, and I needed a space to express myself on a daily basis. Blogging can be anything: a snapshot, a quote from a magazine or movie, a poem about the smell of the inside of someone’s house, the expression of moments. It has become a way for me to experiment with with ideas and try to map my experiences, and to simply be more free with my art. This zine is my first attempt to capture the essence of the blogosphere of colorist dreams.”
