99MM ZINE #45 - IAN VANEK
Issue Number 45... Can you believe it? Ian Vanek keeps it punk with the cut and paste, high contrast, one color printing. The graff report merges dense street level tags with layers of two-color throws and bombing. An amalgam of NYC, Bay Area, and the Pacific Northwest is representing here. All of it is slathered in that grimy but skilled style that catches your eye and makes you question your outlines.
There's also a handwritten interview with New York / Boston's legendary white-out tag and sticker king, KOOK ONE. Kook drops a classic playlist, their favorite NYC lunch spots, and advice for up and coming taggers. Rounding out the motorcycle logos & Howardian references, there's also a kale salad recipe and book reviews of Octavia Butler's writing. Ian has honed his own unique graff zine language and process. Pick up a copy, better late than never.
