Sea Buffalos, Boiled Eggs and Ozzy Osbourne


Issue #3 of This is Water, Jean McEwan‘s 7 day personal zine about trying to pay attention is out and available! The zine is based on an idea inspired by (and borrows it’s name from) a speech by the late great writer David Foster Wallace – the artists favourite writer and one of her heros.


This issue was made whilst staying in Robin Hood’s Bay over New Year. Jean describes Issue 3 as: a hand-made A5 20 page zine printed in full colour. It contains sea buffalos, a found inscription scratched on a bench, overheard conversations about boiled eggs, sightings of Elton John and Ozzy Osbourne in The Laurel, things I’ve picked up off the beach, Hogmannay angst, musings about David Foster Wallace and a bit from Thomas Pynchon’s ‘The Crying of Lot 49’. You can buy it here.
