Hi! I'm a designer and musician living in Austin TX, I play in drums in a band called Football, Etc. I make lots and lots of things, and I work full time at a boutique digital advertising agency. I like cats, travel, and nice looking things. DESIGN WORKFOOTBALL ETC.
Almost 9 years ago, I started Manual Dexterity as an outlet to highlight and interview independent bands that often wouldn’t get noticed by major and semi-major publications. With as much fun as I’ve had over the last 9 years, today marks the end of Manual Dexterity.
I always told myself that I would end this project as soon as it stopped being fun or it started to feel like work. Over that last couple issues, Manual Dexterity started to feel like an obligation and not a spur-of-the-moment act like it did early on. So for now, no new issues of the zine will be produced and mandexzine.com will only exist as an archive of the past 9 years of work (and the occasional post/reblog to share the awesome things you all do!).
