An interview: Will Gaynor

We’re working on some new things and working with some new folks. Our good friend X.C. Atkins is going to be bringing you some interviews with some artists and acquaintances down the line.

Here is an interview with Will Gaynor. A great artist here in Austin.

Check out his website here.


“A fun little interview I did with my friend and artist Will Gaynor of the Common House. He had a really rad show this past October. I didn’t get to buy a piece this time, but I felt like I learned more about him, and I think that’s a pretty cool thing. Shout out to the Illegal Eagles.”

Wolves now online

If you didn’t get a chance to pick up Xavier’s recent collaboration, you might be out of luck. They went like hotcakes at Common House and the Austin Zine Fest. A great collaboration and hard work paid off on this one. You can still see it here, but you’ll need to track down a copy to read this great work.

Upcoming releases

Jessica and I will be traveling to San Francisco to visit and see some art in the next week or so. We’re hustling to get a new release done with good bud, X.C. Atkins. Be on the lookout for this book to be released at a Common House show next month.

More details to come.


We’re also super excited to announce a new collaboration that is beginning with artist, Max Kauffman. We’ll be working on this collaboration when we return for a mid-November release. Get ready!


No Porn

We just stumbled upon an article from early July . Head over to The New York Times article “No Porn, Just Books and Zines“  to see the zine kiosk  we wished existed when  we rode the train to work.

Sept 2013: Klint Teston

Crummy House is proud to announce a collaboration with friend and rad creative, Klint Teston. We’ve been sitting on this work from Klint since earlier this year, but finally got around to putting this book together. A rad piece with clips from the local rag, BUSTED, features some characters who got a little unlucky here in Austin.
