Vintage Color Palette - Yamato Bros. Co.

Vintage Color Palette - Yamamto Bros Co. See blog for hex codes:

This is a beautiful vintage color combination from this unique piece of advertising scrap. The company who distributed these was Yamato Bros. Co, in Kobe, Japan. I am guessing this is from around 1910.  Can you read Japanese?  I'd love to know what it says.

The hex codes for these colors is from top to bottom: f8b4c3, a7b15f, ce3041, 296e8f.

All the Zines you Could Want in One Room - The Portland Zine Symposium 2015!

It's that time again! The Portland Zine Symposium is this weekend and I will be there. Need convincing:

Top Ten Reasons you should go to the Portland Zine Symposium:

  1. It's free
  2. It's air-conditioned
  3. There are free workshops where you can learn stuff
  4. There are thousands of zines there for you to browse
  5. Because you've never known for sure what this whole zine thing is about
  6. There are lots of comic artists there, too.
  7. You will have some great conversations
  8. You'll probably end up with some free stuff
  9. You'll get to see me
  10. You can see my new zine!

Hope to see you there! I will be near the far front door.
