A long time coming


Latest work:

We are very excited to participate in Museums Press’ workshop at GRAFIXX, a festival in Antwerp, Belgium.

Jessica and I made some pages which will be available for participants to fold into their own bootlegged zine.

Since we’ve been gone:

We’ve been working away at our own lives since we last posted. Jess and I are getting married and figuring out how to stay alive as artists in a town that continues to become more expensive. We’ve got some ideas about the next phase of Crummy House and what we’ll do next with this art experiment in collaboration. Stay tuned, the crumminess will continue soon.


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.

Not so Crummy zines

We’ve picked up some rad zines lately and wanted to share them with you. It’s always nice to see how everyone does their own thing with folded paper and imagery. Nice work on these inspiring releases.

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.

Slow goings

Photos from our show in late March

We’ve gotta admit, we haven’t been working too much on Crummy House stuff these days. Since the show in late March, we’ve been really just trying to keep our heads and find some REAL work to keep us and the kitties fed. We’ve got some plans in store for the summer and the fall, but don’t hold your breath for a while.

Stay creative, stay in touch. We’ll be back.
