This past weekend, I tabled at SFZF (San Francisco Zine Fest) — my first time tabling! :o I didn’t sell as much as I had hoped, but it was a great experience nonetheless. I met a number of really nice and talented artists/zinesters and handed out a ton of The Poet and the Flea postcards & The First Reich flyers. Now, I feel much more prepared for SPX in September and APE in October.

Here’s a photographic taste of my experience…

“Who is Laurence Harvey?”: Research

Over the course of researching and writing my first full-length screenplay entitled Who is Laurence Harvey? (about the forgotten international film star Laurence Harvey [1928 - 1973]), I developed a bit of a hobby.

“What hobby?” you ask.

Collecting every single last image of Laurence Harvey I can find on the internet, that’s what!!

I currently have over 450 images saved in my Laurence Harvey folder.

Here, I thought I’d share some of my favorite images. These are the images that I hope will one day influence the production/design of this film.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of these images!!

(Click on images to enlarge.)
