Lazy Soosan @ The London Zine Symposium 2010

Yesterday was the sixth annual London Zine Symposium at The Old Rag Factory in East London, and Lucy and I were again lucky enough to be allocated a spot for Lazy Soosan.

Lighter, brighter, bigger and better than last year, the day saw the usual mix of zines, small-press comics, distros and radical culture. We had the pleasure of being sat amongst Tukru of the Kent based zine distro - Vampire Sushi, Girl Photographer (aka Eleanor Jane) and the Brighton Zine Fest Collective: all absolute proffessionals and ol' timers at LZS, so it was great to be surrounded with such experts!

Other highlights include Love To Print/Girls Who Draw, Mark Pawson, Sh*t Birthday, Forest Publishing, Bel's Art World and of course, Josie Long who was there promoting her zine: Drawing Moustaches in Magazines Monthly, which you can dowload here, and also giving zine readings along with Charlotte Cooper, Isy Morgenmuffel and Patrick Saff.

It was also great to catch up with Fever Zine who, despite an epic print fail, which was a giant shame, still managed to be there to help on the main zine table, and of course, shop! And speaking of shopping, I picked up some great little treats, and although I've had a quick flick through them all (I couldnt resist..!), I'll be saving the big read for my fast approaching flight to Canada. I'm starting to feel a little anxious about the 7 hour trip alone, and am collecting each every distraction I come across! Suggestions are most welcome!

The main Lazy Soosan news from the day, was of course that we launched 2 new issues to coincide with the symposium which made it a little bit more special, and was great to see such a great response to our now 7-strong collection of zines. More news will follow soon on that though!

But yes, going back to the big day, we had such a great time, met some super people, discovered some perfect little zines and we're very much looking forward to next year!


Lazy Soosan @ Rummage!

On Sunday, Lucy and I took part in the first ever Rummage at Superette organised by Leona Clarke of Lady Luck Rules OK. It was a rather rainy start to the day, but having eventually braved the elements and the busses with our trolleys full of jumble, we had soon managed to set our space up and were raring to go!

The doors opened at 12, and the shoppers came streaming through for the next 5 hours! It was pretty much non-stop from the word go, but we did manage to sneak a quick look around the other great stalls, see some very lovely prints and illustrations, meet some great people, have a bit of a natter, and munch on cream cheese bagels and cup cakes!

If you couldn't make it down yesterday, heres a small selection of the excellent illustrators you missed out on!
Suzy Q and the Owls, Cat Sims, Noodoll, Anorak Magazine, Garudio Studiage, Leona Clarke, Belinda Chen, Katey Harvey, Girl Gang and Brennan and Burch. For details of everyone else who took part, visit the Rummage Facebook page.

Roll on Rummage number 2!


Lazy Soosan - back in action!

So it's been an awful long while since we last saw some sign of life from ol' Sooz... but she has been living up to her name and has been particularly lazy for the past however long.

But, today I can exclusively reveal that not only are we participating in two particularly super events in May, we also have two brand spanking new issues waiting to be launched at said events! Scratch the old myth - good things come in twos these days!

1.RUMMAGE! @ Superette The Illustrators Special

Leona of Superette and Lady Luck Rules OK has kindly asked Lazy Soosan to participate in the first ever Rummage: an arty afternoon jumble sale focusing on different artistic disciplines each round. 1st up - Illustrators! Come along on Sunday 2nd May from 12noon - 5pm to 66a Sclater Street - just off Brick Lane. There will be some excellent illustrators selling their wares including Anorak Magazine, Noodoll Laura Bird, Cat Sims and plenty, plenty more!

2. The London Zine Symposium 2010

We will also be at this year's London Zine Symposium 2010 on Saturday May 29th at the Rag Factory, again, just off Brick Lane. We had such a great time last year and are super happy to have made the cut again this year!

Exciting times at Lazy HQ!


Truck Monsters

So the lovely people at Truck Festival asked Lazy Soosan to make them some monsters based on their little monster logo to sell at the festival this weekend. If you're lucky enough to be heading on down to Hill Farm in Steventon be sure to bag yourself one of the handmade limited edition little blighters!

Each monster has a screen printed patch displaying the Truck logo on their bottoms, and a festival lanyard with a little bit of information about their dispositions.

We ended up slaving over them for quite some time and naturally became rather attached. We were very sad to see them go, so please, go buy, and make sure that you give your Truck monster a good home!



Young Blood Gallery

You can now buy Lazy Soosan at Young Blood Gallery and Boutique in Atlanta, America. Currently we have 10 Issues of each Issue in the Boutique. This is very exciting, so if your in the area (sadly we wont be) please please go have a look. O and don't forget to tell us what its like.

The all important address ::
636 N Highland Ave
GA 30306

Sun-Thurs: 12-8 / Fri-Sat: 12-9

A little bit about the Gallery it self by themselves:
"Young Blood Gallery and Boutique is the foremost independent showcase in Atlanta for emerging artists and Do-It-Yourself crafters. Young Blood was born in 1997 in the home of Maggie White and Kelly Teasley when the two grew tired of the Atlanta art gallery establishment’s refusal to exhibit incredibly talented – though unknown – local artists............With art openings the first Saturday of each month, and Kraftwork, a crafts market featuring handmade merchandise crafted by rising designers and artists on the first Thursday of each month, Young Blood gives Atlantans the chance to find creations that can be found no where else."


The London Zine Symposium 2009!

Last weekend Laura and I went down to the London Zine Symposium in London town. It was at the Rag Factory just off Brick Lane. It was such a great turn out all day long. We had a little table to sell all our goods. We even had home made alphabet biccies! It didn't get much better than that. We couldnt believe it was so busy.... it was a steady stream of people for the whole 6 hours we were there! We had the honor of sitting next to Fever Zine, which was very exciting as we have seen them there the last couple of symposiums we have been to.
Thank you so much to everybody that came down, and it was so lovely to meet all you other zine makers. Looking forward to next years!
