Intended as an aesthetic and psychological counterpoint to my current show Cy Twombly Death's Head (see below post) at Park Life in SF, I produced this fast and crude little comic/zine Fuck Our Lives (Volume One) for Printed Matter's 2014 LA Art Book Fair. I made a limited first edition of 50 copies, and it sold out mid-afternoon on Saturday! People were super into it, and extremely into the Xerox posters I gave away with it!
I made another, darker photo book triptych as well, titled Cover Your Breast, which people also responded strongly to. Phew!
I'm completely humbled by the fair- so many people said I was their favorite booth! I sold a bunch of shirts and photo zines and had a great time chatting with the masses!
So… maybe I'm funny? I don't know… I'm just stoked that everyone enjoyed it so much!
Now I just need to find someone to sponsor a larger edition of Volume Two! For that one, I'm thinking I'll double the page count and produce a small signed and numbered Xerox poster edition on heavyweight paper. Sounds like a good art show, too- who wants to do it?
Check out the pages of the zine:
This last one didn't make the cut for the book, but I like it a bunch nonetheless:
