'''the carbon based mistake''' is zine publishing venture started in 1998 by Marc Calvary after a series of other randomly titled zines that begun in 1993. It currently takes the form of zines & books & photography & writing & blasphemy & art & design. Location of operations began in Los Angeles, California, migrated to Eugene, Oregon and now eternally resides in New York. Besides the main project, a series of books and zines under the umbrella name of the carbon based mistake, side projects include: The Art Exchange Program: an annual zine contest awarding grant money and prizes in an attempt to encourage others to continue to make art, and cherrypepper: a pin-up style adults-only photography and design project. ''the carbon based mistake'' has won the ''Writers Digest'' award for Best Art Design, has been featured in ''Print Magazine's Regional Design Annual'' from 2003-2006, How Magazine International Design Awards – 2012/2013, as well as issues 5, 6, and 7 of the Austrian design journal ''+rosebud''. Marc Calvary went into a hibernation during an extended spiral of depression. He finally decided to stop being such a damn baby and get back to work. New zines have included various concepts and ideas such as one called [[Societal Monsters]] that associates Christians with serial killers and child molesters, to photographs of medicine cabinets collected in [[Undercover Ablutions]]. There have been photographic essays with fake subway signs and rants of horrible commuters documented in [[The Straphanger's Noose]] and a children's story ''The Thin White Duke and The Beatle'' about a shark hunting adventure at the Hudson River with Paul McCartney and David Bowie. As well as stickers and buttons and other odd items. ==External Links== *[ the carbon based mistake] *[ facebook] *[ The Art Exchange Program Zine Grant] *[ cherrypepper, a little erotic reality] *[ We Make Zines] *[ Instagram] *[http:// and everything else here] [[category:Zine]] [[Category:Zines from the U.S.A.]][[Category:New York zines]] [[Category:2000's publications]]
