Grim 19 Dark Art Zine Summer / Autumn 2020 Edition
Grim is a not-for-profit (costs only) retro grunge styled, hand-made (where possible), xeroxed dark art zine. Grim 19 contains 58 pages of visual arts and the written word and always has a dark slant. This editions has images and words by artists from several continents:
I’m honoured to have included in this edition the master of dark arts Matt Lombard who has 6 images plus an interview giving us a glimpse into his mind; I’ve always been in awe of his work, as I have of the work of Divine Chaos which is so damn creepy and adorns Grims’ centre pages. Maria Careto has again illustrated a very dark tale by @words_are_swords (Tracey Katz) which spreads across 7 superb designed pages. Dark story tellers feature heavily in this edition too and Dean Drinkel’s ‘Oi Spragides’ is a meaty 7 pages. Other writings include work from @declanbannon with ‘Weeping Angel’ and @artyj15 with ‘Morning People’. And there is another interview with @satoricircus & @springheel_media looking at their photographer/performer relationship.
I’m very proud of this edition as it feels more ‘considered’ and designed without losing the grunge ethos which is essential for anything I do 🙂
