'ZINE THING PARTY
This past Saturday was the Thrasher Magazine ‘Zine Thing party at the TFR Gallery in Encinitas, CA. This was a great event set up to celebrate the reissue of the of the Justin Lovely / Swank Zine Tea Pot deck that was recently reissued by Foundation / Skull Skates.
Big thanks to Tyler Culbertson who let me barge in and set up to sell a few zines. I was only able to stay at the party for an hour or so but I did sell a few copies and did a lot of trades with fellow zine makers.
I took a bunch of photos during my short time at the show… Here they are in all their digital glory. Enjoy.
Buy, sell, trade!
