I'm sorry for not posting for so long. In the beginning of this summer I moved in London, was difficult at first, I was really busy searching for job and so on. But I still manage to find time to draw. Here's one of my drawings, my co-worker asked to draw into his sketch book. So I did. It's like the preview of the heavy thoughts going around in my head lately. I'm planning to go back in Lithuania in autumn and I have some ideas about what I would like to do. One of them is that I want to make the wicked art zine and I'm interested if anyone would like to participate in this project? If you have some thoughts - write in comments or shaltmira@terror.lt

By participate, are you asking fellow ducks to contribute artwork to your zine, should it come to fruition? There are too few 'weird' art zines out there, I mean legitimately weird. If my style is appropriate for what you had in mind, I'd be more than willing to submit some of my paintings. I've a few more I am working on that are in the relatively-far-along stage.

I would like to see more of this kind of drawings, it's quite intense in a way that I like.
About that artizine: sure, I would be game if what I do is what you are looking for. You may want to be a little more explicit about what kind of art you are interested in.

Hi there,

sorry for not answering for a while, now I live in London and experienced all the chaos, so I was disturbed for a moment. but now things are going better. :]

I will write you the main things about my plans for this art zine:
- A5 format
- black & white
- the main themes.. I think that's clear, that I'm not planing to release some ordinary stuff. :] I'm searching for dark, sarcastic, cynic, abnormal, perverted, strange ,disruptive, abusive,sexual appealing, fetishistic, incestuous, primitive, mysterious etc. art. or you can say anti-art. creation. production. works. sketches. whatever unacceptable for large audiences.:]
- zine includes:
- drawings, prints, collages, mixed technique artworks, if you have other interesting things, let me know.
- interviews with the fellow artist (I would like to get some more information about people whose artworks I appreciate and I think that this will be also very interesting for others, there will be interviews of people from different countries, Lithuania as well, some artist are well known, but I think that there are a lot of interesting persons whose are just drawing in their cellars, and have never spoken loudly. I think that they have what to say, I and want their words to be heard, or read, at this occasion :]
- short stories (I want to make this zine to be interesting to look and to read. I have some Lithuanian friends, who write wicked short stories, and they said that they will come up to this issue with some dirty material, and I invite you too to participate. any wicked, dirty, perverted, dark, erotic story is welcomed.)
- if everything goes good I'm planning to release it in December.

If you would like to show your artworks in this issue, send me the jpg of good quality. 2 to 3 artworks. I would also would like to have some details about a person, if you don't want to share your personal information you can write me just your name/nickname, country, website, as much as you think it's enough. But if you would like to give me an interview - I would really appreciate that, it doesn't have to be long, it depends on you. you don't have to answer all the questions :] I don't know yet how many pages this zine will have. I'm doing this first time, but there are already some people who will help me, and if you also have some ideas how I could improve it, or you want to help - please tell me, any opinion or suggestion is welcomed.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask at any time!
Have a good evening,
