Today is the last day to attend the Brooklyn Zine Fest--an annual exhibit held at Brooklyn's Historical Society in New York. There, local creative people set up tables and booths, sharing self-published zines about writing, illustration, photography, music, cooking, skating, and just about anything.

Dylan Egon is a mixed-media artist based out of New Jersey. Whether crafting collages with paint, foil, and a myriad of found objects, creating silk screens and sculptures, or (more recently) designing furniture, Egon's work addresses such themes as pop culture, consumerism, religion, and the impermanence of nature.
In his home state of Maryland, Bill Dunlap entered a design project to create murals on the sides of barns. He entered some wild and crazy sketches--perhaps they were sexually or religiously offensive, or perhaps they were simply a study of the human form or haloed flesh-toned shadows--and the rural, hardworking people of Maryland took one look and said, "Not on my barn."
