coreyfarkas asked: Hello,Where can one order this?


Answer:

Hello! I’m struggling to finish up the preorders at the moment, but after the last one ships to its new owner, I’ll open up for sales again. If you keep your eyes peeled on this blog I’ll put updates up to let you know!

Hey all!
Just wanted to give you an update on the zines! I got the main part of the books back from the printers but I’m waiting on the pop-up prints and the mini-comics. I’m also insanely busy at the moment with work (you can see most of the things I have on my plate here if you’re interested) but I will do my best to get everyone’s orders out as soon as I can. 
Thanks for bearing with me!

captianofthefaggots28 asked: Will you be running the zine again in pop up print and everything?


Answer:

I sure will! I just got the zines back from the printer, and am hustling to get them ready to ship. After the preorders ship, I’ll put the remainder up for sale.

FEZZINE EDITION 2

There was a slight hitch with the files I’d sent to the printer but everything is back on track and I should be sending the non-pop-up zines in a week, and the pop-ups soon after that. 

Thanks for sitting tight everyone! As always, feel free to email me about your orders if you need to change addresses or something. I’ll do my best to accomodate everyone if I can.

I was very excited to be interviewed about FEZZINE for Whurk Magazine, a local art news paper. Seth Casana bought one of the 1st Edition zines and we had a little phone interview to discuss the process. You can read the whole thing here. Thanks Seth! 

(Also excited to have my pieces featured alongside Ashley Mackenzie and Miranda Meeks’ lovely pieces!)

Anonymous asked: When will this become available again?! I must have this :)


Answer:

It’s off at the printers at the moment. The regular orders will be available after the zines go out next week for the people who preordered! Should be late June/early July!

Anonymous asked: I have paid for the 2nd edition of the FEZZINE but don't know how to send you my adress. Can you help me?


Answer:

If you’ve paid for the preorder then I already have your address when you purchased it. Unless it’s changed for some reason, in which case you can email me at thefezzine@gmail.com.

The second edition of FEZZINE is no longer available for preorder, but there will be more for sale online at the end of the month. Big thank you to everyone who ordered a copy - they’ll be printed asap!
In the meantime, Matthew Casale wrote a very kind review of FEZZINE if you wanna check it out here!

Oh man, the zines are finally all on their way to all you cool cats that nabbed a first edition! I’m thrilled as all hell that people from all over the US and many different countries were into this! Domestic mail should arrive this week (on or before Friday - contact me (thefezzine@gmail.com) if you don’t get it by Saturday) and International should arrive next week hopefully, but it depends on your country. There might be a couple of extra first editions on their way back from TCAF but otherwise we’re moving on to the preorder for the second edition!
So, if you wanna place a preorder for the second edition, please check the link here! Couple of notes though, because things are a little different for round two. There are now two versions of FEZZINE, one with a pop-up and one with a printed version. My piece (here) turned out to be a bit more cumbersome than I would have liked, so I’m paring it down to make it a cleaner and better design. 50 books will be available with the new and improved pop-up (unless those sell out like immediately in which case I may up the quantity). And the remaining preorders will have my piece printed.
Shipping prices have also been fixed to reflect the new way I’ll be posting them to you (different envelopes, faster times, etc.). The zines should ship out early to mid June!
As always, thank you guys for your patience and support!
The preorder window will be from now until 5/21 12AM EST. Depending on how many pre-orders come in I’ll determine if there will be some spare to buy afterward.

FEZZINE UPDATE!
So first of all, thank you thank you thank you for everyone’s patience. Zines are already being sent out in daily waves, so keep an eye out for your mail in within a week (or two-ish weeks if you’re abroad). Pop-ups are no joke, man. 
And if you’re in Toronto this weekend, Natalie Andrewson is going to have a few copies of FEZZINE so get there fast if you want your copy! Also check out the rest of her work because it’s gorgeous. A link to her post about her new zine, Eris, and her table number at TCAF is here. Also at TCAF, Matt Hawkins will be giving a talk about video game zines and FEZZINE is going to be brought up! Wish I were going to TCAF for so many reasons. 
Like I’ve mentioned before I’ll be opening up the shop for preorders to figure out how many to reprint. This should happen on Monday! That said though, I’m actually going to be expanding the zine a bit to include even more amazing art, which’ll be like FEZZINE Part 2: The Expansion Pack or somethin. And I think I’d also like to do a Ghibli Jam-style collaboration where everyone can submit their FEZ art, and a few of them can make it into a printed version! Anyone up for that?

4th-grader asked: How do I get one of these?!


Answer:

The first run is basically sold out (unless you’re going to TCAF, or if there are spares from TCAF) but I’ll be putting them up for preorders for the 2nd edition this week I think! Check this blog and http://kevinjaystanton.bigcartel.com/ for more details coming up!

Phew!

So the zines are coming along and are going out this week finally. Thanks again for bearing with me! I bought a tabletop cutter that has helped things along enormously. 

That said, there’s been a slight hitch with TCAF plans. If you’re planning on going to TCAF in the hopes of getting a copy, please please email me ASAP at thefezzine@gmail.com so I can ship a few copies there. Natalie Andrewson might have a couple of copies available but there won’t be any room to display them so you’ll have to ask her directly!

What this also means is that there are a few extra first editions that will be going up on sale asap so keep your eyes peeled!

Quick update

Big apology for the delay in shipping the zines - I’ve been absolutely snowed under with work and trying to finish things up (if you’re curious about my work, please check out my blog here!). 

BUT things are cooling off for now, so the zines will be shipped after I get back from a quick work trip! Thanks for bearing with me! If you have any questions you can always email me here.

And if you’re gonna be at TCAF, please check out Natalie Andrewson’s table (her blog is here if you wanna keep an eye out for her amazing work) - there will be 10 copies of FEZZINE for sale!

Also, after I ship out the first edition, preorders for the second run will happen real quick (which helps me gauge the interest in it)! There’s a new project that should be happening soon too, which will let more people share their love of FEZ! Chat soon, and thank you!

Anonymous asked: Do you know when the first edition will ship?


Answer:

I hope to get them out at the end of the week! My pop-ups have taken a little extra time than I’d initially thought, and I have to finish six gallery pieces this week which is consuming my every waking moment (sorry!). Thanks for bearing with me and for your message!
