Kevin Mellon is a wonderful dude, a great artist, and last sunday, A TREE FELL ON HIS FUCKING HOUSE AND ON TOP OF HIM while he was asleep. “He’s out of the hospital and resting now. No major damage – somehow, he’s walking away with just a lot of bruises. He’s the luckiest unlucky guy ever,” a mutual friend told me.
STILL HOLY SHIT KEVIN HOLY SHIT
His roommate Brooke is putting together a ‘zine letting the great KM know that while trees might have it out for him we here on Earth love and adore him and are glad he lives to fight another day.
Submissions for KevinZine (working title, PLEASE suggest a better one) can be extremely quick and dirty, and the general theme is “Things that delight Kevin and let him know he’s loved.” Individual page dimensions will be 8.5 x 5.5 in, we’ll be printing in b&w, and submissions will be pretty varied. (Poems, four-panel comic strips, etc.) We’re trying to get things wrapped up by Sunday so we can get this to Kevin quicklike, but can be flexible. We’ll obviously credit all contributors, and if enough people want a copy, I can make that happen too.
PDFs or JPGS should be fine. 300 DPI is ideal but we’ll be printing this in true DIY style, so lower resolution isn’t a dealbreaker.
So Sunday is in like 72 hours and I got this email in the middle of a deadline crash so it’s not been until now I’ve gotten my shit together to post this. I dunno if Sunday’s still the target or not but figure ASAP if you want to join team FUCK THAT TREE, KEVIN and pitch in!
