Trails started in Melbourne by Lachlan Conn and Michael Fikaris in 2004.
The idea came from wanting regular meetings of like minded people. The idea was people get together somewhere and work on small exercises. Drawing. Writing. Talking. Thinking. Sometimes there is a special guest in town, sometimes there is a coffee machine or a paper sponsor. The collected pages are then scanned and printed up as a small collection. Ideally someone will lay out the works and print them up in a small edition. At the next Trails get together you can pick up a copy.
They have happened up in many studios and there have been 12 collections printed. Not very regular since 2009 'Trails' has a blog here
Leftover copies can also be found in the storeroom and often come with mail orders.
