Oh no! Free zines?

“Oh no!” is a 8 pages mini-zine by Belgium illustrator Max de Radiguès. All in black white, we discover little characters that all had the same costume idea. A classic! I love it and it reminded me of an epic TBBT episode in which the main characters had the same costume.

Now, “Oh No!” is not the first and certainly not the last free fanzine. So why was I surprised when I got it? Because the way I actually got it was quite unusual.

Imagine a website where you can download fanzines for free. That exists already. But now, imagine a website where you can download fanzines for free, AND, in the right format to fold it straight after printing it unto your desktop. Now that’s something and that website is 8 Pages Comics! Allowing anyone to upload their fanzine. The website takes care of the layout depending on how big does the reader wants its fanzine to be.

The originators of that cool project are the folks behind the Belgium publishing house and collective: L’Employé du Moi. I believe that they started from the simple idea of printing fanzines at home using digital distribution and that is cool. Check them out! It’s really brilliant!

Have a sound day.

Bad Bad Very Good!

I’ve been listening to a lot of Bad Bad Not Good lately, and just found out that they will be playing at Xoyo London on Thursday the 6th of May. I decided to have fun and make a little flyer for that special occasion.

You can purchase tickets by clicking on the actual flyer.

Note to the photograph of the original picture: I didn’t/don’t/won’t sell this design. Email me if you have a problem with me having fun with your photo.

Two years ago, my girlfriend and I managed to get tickets for the legendary 24 hours car race in Le Mans. This was the first time that I ever attended such an event. To be honest, I was quite amazed and felt like a kid in front of all that energy and passion for that four wheel legendary race I’ve heard about all my life through comic books, movies and sports channels.

As my girlfriend is originally from there, growing up in Le Mans, her dad took her there several times and being introduced to that massive event by the both of them was a greater honor and pleasure.

Not only I got to see some of my favorite cars in real life, but I also get to see one of my favorite rock bands of the last few years: Kill The Young.

Before I forget, a lot of people fell asleep and didn’t get to see important parts of the race.
