Do Something's general focus is on moving in and experiencing cities and urban spaces. Each issue includes a story and accompanying map, and interviews with artists from the U.S. and Mexico. Past zine projects include the smash hits Zinester’s Guide to San Diego and If You Give a Punk a Coffee (an update of a classic children’s book, now in a bilingual edition). Gomez is a (former) bike courier and (current) bike educator with a graduate degree in urban affairs. They are interested in concepts of urbanism and cities, how we think about time and space (more often than not through speed and distance), and precocity. By writing about bikes and talking to artists Gomez is looking for lived experience that engages these ideas.
