Zinester Interview with Alex the Intrepid!

 

ALEX

Alex Wrekk is in town from Portland, OR! Like Ms. Adderley, Alex Wrekk trekked across a handful of states to table at our fledging wee fest– why don’t you come down and get some zines from her distro, Portland Button Works, and check our her long-running zine– Brainscan.

Please tell us about the zines you’ll be tabling at ABQZF!

Portland Button Works will bring our whole zine distro including my personal zine, Brainscan. We will also have our whole catalog of zine themed buttons. I’ve been creating Brainscan since 1997 and it is a zine that has grown as changed over the years some topics have included: travel, stories, reproductive health, love, recovery from emotional abuse, and more wrapped in stark black and white photocopier art layout.

What do you say when someone asks you,  “What are zines?”

Sounds like magazine, without the “maga”. They are like small self published magazine where people get to tell their own story or include their own art. Zines are physical things (e-zines are not zines!) but there is also a large network of communities that celebrate and participate in the culture of zines.

Do you have a zine crush? If so, are you willing to reveal the object of your zine affection?

Of course, but I’m not telling you!

What’s the most challenging thing about zine making?

Finding the time to make them these days.

How long have you been writing zines, and how did you get started?What do you enjoy most about making zines?

I started my first zine in 1994, but didn’t put it out until 1995. I keep reading them and one day it hit me “I can make these too!”

Roughly how many zines do you archive in your personal collection?

Thousands and thousands over the years. I’ve been passing them on lately, though.

So much of the written word we now experience via digital media. Why are zines important?

Because zines can get to places that digital media can’t. There is something very special about the tangibility of zines and holding something in your hand that you know the creator of it touched it as well.

 

Thanks, Alex!
