My new zine, Secret Bully #2, is now available in my new webstore, Hunt & Moon, along with other prints and zines!

(I decided to give “these things I do” a name - Hunt & Moon - which is what my name means, being the epitet of Artemis. Just trying to live the goddess life over here.)

Secret Bully #2 is about using nature and animals to help figure things out in this wild thing called life. The creative nonfiction essays in this issue are about three different relationships that have dissipated, and how nature helped me realize the things I did and did not deserve. 

This zine is easily one of my favorite current zines. Do yourself a favor and buy it. You will get lost in vivid imagery and deeply personal stories. You will wait anxiously for the next issue to come out.  

Launch Day!

Hey dudes, 

Yesterday was seriously awesome. So incredible to see Kettnerd.com spark to life!

As you can see, my mind is blown! 

But stay tuned! I promise to keep the site updated with fresh content on the regular! 

Coming up next week is a sneak peek of my latest freelance comic gig, as well as some super-heroey samples I’ve unearthed from the crypts!

Spread the word, ya’ll!

My buddy Kettner makes really awesome comics, from punk autobio stuff that you know I love, to super hero inspired fiction work, he does it all! You might have seen his work in issues of As You Were, the punk comics anthologies, or on If You Make It, the music website. 

But now you can see it on his very own website and tumblr. Follow him on tumblr and visit his website! You’ll be stoked.

I just finished a new zine for Chicago Zine Fest. You can buy it online now if you’re interested! 3 bucks plus shipping.


This is Issue #3 of an annual series of comics collections!

I drew all of these comics throughout the year 2013 for various things, and wanted to see them all in one place and in print. This includes a selection of pages from a 280 page book I put out in 2013 called Little Fish.

Everydaypants #3 is filled with short comics about music, diy, nannying, and going to college when I was 18.

It also includes a selection of commissions I did during 2013 and a collection of pet portraits.

This is 46 pages, black and white, and saddle stitched!

Please note: comics that appear in this also appear in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle (nanny zine), As You Were issues 1 and 2, a comic from Draft Dodger #1, and pages from Little Fish. If you have all or some of these things, this will mostly be a repeat for you. Thanks!

Greetings from Chicago

Anonymous asked: hey! so in planning my move to philly, i've been really overwhelmed by trying figure out which part of the city or which neighborhood is the right place for me, and i was wondering if you could help me out! i feel that i have pretty similar interests to you including punk music/shows, arts/crafts, diy, and activism. just looking for a nice, respectful community feel that i feel like you're a part of! thanks!

I think West Philly is really the place to be in terms of activism and diversity. 

If we’re going to break it down to the most  basic stereotypes, it seems:

West Philly = activists, punks, hippies, yuppies

South Philly = party punks, vegan straightedge, hardcore kids

Fishtown = artists, noise makers, performance folks

Obviously this is extremely generalized and I wish you weren’t anonymous so I could write it just to you in a SECRET MESSAGE so that this won’t go on the internet as something I’ve admitted to thinking/subscribing to, but - it’s real. 

With that said, West Philly is mostly only affordable still in group house settings. You can find cheaper rent in South Philly (but in my opinion that comes with sacrifices). I like trees and space and West Philly is really the place for that. 

This looks like a listing for a pretty desirable living situation. My friend just posted it:

http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/roo/4337161118.html

Also if you’re just looking at craigslist for housing, Point Breeze and Graduate Hospital are real estate buzzwords for two neighborhoods that are being rapidly gentrified and filled with gut rehabs. In terms of activism, be wary of those spots. They’ll have the cheapest rent likely. 

*also, I’ve only ever lived in West Philly so maybe I have no idea what I’m talking about.

michaelcantor:

This weekend, I began recording a new LP. I will record/release it as The Goodbye Party, the new name for my solo recordings and performances. 

My dear friend Joey Doubek helped track some drum parts. He also happens to be one of the best drummers I’ve ever worked with. Carni Klirs  helped us record the session. I will be tracking the rest of the instruments at home over the next month or so, with Carni helping to mix/”produce”/answer dumb questions I have.
