Philadelphia, this is the last day to see our friend Tom Bubul‘s installation at Space 1026. close-out party tonight with music and hopefully snacks, though maybe it’s BYOSnacks.
Tom’s the editor of the ideally quarterly Mothers News Literary Quarterly supplement, and a frequent contributor to the Mothers News Ad Drawing Team. here’s a nice review of the set-up, and here’s another.

video from the Pak / Sakiko Mori collab that took place at Tom Bubul’s show at RK projects last spring.
Tom’s show was only up for a week, but every night had some sort of event, usually with pizza and beer.
Prints from the show, in the form of the final installment of Tom’s zine “Ospreys”, are available at Chipsylvania here. Tommy’s got a new zine out too, a “shitty drawing zine” called “Zola’s”, which he is being super cocky about in a real funny way. here’s the regular information:
ZOLA’S is my new monthly drawing zine. It is meant to be conversational and documentary above all else.
The constraints are:
- Must be produced in one day from drawings made in the previous month
- Must be produced monthly
- Must be at least 12 pages in A5 format
For the time being this project will not be documented online.
and here’s the cocky shit:
you fucks, I have seen all of your dirt-style drawing zines, you have no idea what you’re doing, you have no idea what a dirt-style drawing zine even is
ospreys is over, no more unmailable formats that come out twice a year, no more wackado print processes
just the real shit = a bunch of drawings from off of the floor of my room, and whatever else I want to put in there, inkjetted the fuck onto some 8.5×11 pages that get folded in half and stapled every month of the year
it’s not a compilation, it’s not a jam, it’s not for fun – it’s because you fucks are not pulling weight, and somebody has got to show your asses
I know what you’re asking- is it good? Haha, no? I mean, “whatever”?! It’s a bunch of shitty drawings! Also the drawings are cameraphoned and then edited together on the computer, and printed in barely color, like, black lines have weird blue edges and slight digital artifacts. It’s an interesting voice in the conversation? Zola’s is available here. upcoming from dude is a Jandek fanzine, here’s a tease:
Tom’s tumblr is here.
