Sickboy — Carafanzine II

Set to go on sale later today 7th July is Sickboy's second fanzine in his Carafanzine series. This is the artist’s second personal documentary of his caravan painting in a 44-page A5 edition featuring Sickboy’s latest activities, typically involving “fleeing travellers’ yards with Pit Bulls nipping at my ankles.” This risograph printed zine is presented in glorious fluorescent pink and black, with each ‘Carafanzine #2’ uniquely hand-finished with drawings, and comes lovingly-packaged with a caravan sticker sheet, and five x A5 Risograph prints.

To complete the edition of 60 each are banded, wax sealed with a temple logo, edition-numbered, signed and hand-finished by the artist. Our regular readers will know we are huge fans of zines and artist's self publication, and while this looks beautifully produced and package we feel that at £39 this fanzine is a little expensive.

The Carafanzine #2 will go be available directly from Sickboys website at some point today here.
