Thank you kindly for having me on Doodlers Anonymous! It's been a pleasure sharing and I sure hope uberkraaft has as much fun as I have.
For the end of October I was in Mississippi throwing a HUGE dance party under my deejay moniker The Hooded Deer! With the finest production team in the South, we constructed a 22 foot skeleton from wood and led tubes! So I thought I'd share some pictures from Second Chance Zombie Dance. (photos by Andrew Le
On my way to Mississippi, I had a looong layover and "started" a new series called Make Something While Sitting In The Airport (MSWSITA).
Also, this week I visited Natalie Davis' Expressive Type class at the Art Institute (Austin) and gave a guest lecture on ZINES! None of the students had heard of zines, so I thought it best to give a brief overview based on the amazing book, Whatcha Mean, What's a Zine?

If you're not familiar this book you should totally pick it up! It's by two amazing doodlers, Esther Pearl Watson
and Mark Todd
. I focused on the energy, efficiency, and freedom of zine making. I of course had to share the work from my former professor and featured Doodler, Kate Bingaman-Burt
. I think it went really well and the students will be putting together their very own typographic driven zine!
