Work history


Editor & Curator

Gutfeelings Zine

Jan 2013
  • I run a food and culture zine called Gut Feelings which has been in production for the last two years. It is a bi-monthly illustrated zine with contributing artists and writers who feature in each issue. We sell in the UK as well as the states (Los Angeles, Portland, Denver, New York, Chicago, Nashville). Our latest project, Venue to Menu is a illustrated musicians recipe book featuring 30+ musicians and artists. The zine is a collection of recipes from bands and musicians (such as Mumford and sons, Queens of the Stone Age, The Blockheads, Frank Turner, Social Distortion plus lots more). Each page was then illustrated by a different artist. We are currently working on a new, larger edition as we are publishing the project as a book in September as well as launching as a magazine.
