The below account constitutes my attempts, thus far, to express myself and my ideas in print, in the most accesible forum of the arts that I can think exists- Self Publishing. Call them Comix, call them Zines, call them Pamphlets, call them what you will, they’re a little bit of me. Some of this stuff is still available, email me if you are interested in finding out more, or purchasing those that are. Love all round. D/A/P/X
