In 2005, I founded Misprint Magazine with the very talented Bryan Keplesky. What started as 500 copies of a 16-page booklet eventually grew to become a small fixture in Austin with runs of 5000 copies printed on real 2-color printers. It even had ads that people paid us for.
I would describe Misprint as a satire on the local Austin “scene,” making fun of bands, beards, art, and jean shorts. It gathered a fair amount of attention for something with such low aspirations, garnering press from Communication Arts and even getting me a writing gig at the Seattle Stranger.
While my advertising career stole any time I had from Austin and Misprint Magazine, you can still find all of the back issues here.
