“Vacation! (All We Ever Wanted!) Zine” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Howdy Humans! Knowing the importance of pleasing the wife, I sat down today (despite a STRONG urge to do a new radio show) and put together a new zine showcasing the photos I captured (with my phone) on our extended, two-week vacation. This zine is heavy on the visuals and light on those pesky words, which tend to annoy most folks. (I love words, especially confusing and extraneous words, which is why I’m a writer / slash / artist…)

What you will find (for free, I might add) if you click the link below is a 22 page JOURNEY through arts and sights and (a bit of) silliness. If you just want to LOOK at the zine—it’s a PDF file—you can “left-click” on the link and open the file in your browser, or you can download the file and enjoy it as often as you like… Or even print the thing. The same is true of all of my free PDFs, although the SIZES on these pieces vary. This book is 11 inches by 8.5 inches, landscape format… There are a TON of images from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which both Mariah and I found to be a great experience, so if you want to see some of the pieces that the SFMOMA has on display at the moment, here’s your chance.

I’d love to hear from anybody else who visited any of the places chronicled in this zine, particularly the museum. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what your experiences where like! Meanwhile, I’m gonna start putting together a radio show! (Ha!) Below, you’ll find a complete list of the free PDFs that I’ve made available for anybody to read or download. The point of these is to spread the love, share the art, and inspire folks to make their own shit! DO IT! It’s easy. It’s cheap. And with the help of social media, you can distribute your work all around the world INSTANTLY! Even if that work is just some vacation snaps… Ha! I say, “WHY NOT?”
