Truth be told, I don’t have much process photos for Zine so I’ll be combining everything into one huge masterpost!
Even before I started on the Zine project, I always wanted to create a series of sketches akin to the Spiderwick Field guide (I keep bringing this up but I absolutely love the book and the sketches- they are one of Read more →
Actually I had trouble coming up with a common theme for my zine because the main topic for it was alcohol. I wanted to do something similar to my research, such as the pop ups or the different shapes layout for my zine, but it was hard to implement them in the context of alcohol. There wasn’t any inspiration for Read more →
These are the digital version of my intended zine. I decided to add an introduction about my POV adaption along with an abstract of The Little Prince where he was explaining about the story of the boa constrictor. Also, before every POV piece I added the title and the meaning of the illness.
So now that I’ve decided on my work and also illustrated them, it’s time to edit them into InDesign!
The cover page would be printed onto the paper that I did marbling on
Above the poem, I decided to leave it blank because after printing it would, I wanted to cut a hole and sew threads across the hole.

Now that I’ve decided on my topic, I started to brainstorm for the content and because my Depression piece from POV was the inspiration, I knew I wanted to include that into my zine. After much consideration I decided on 4 topics in my zine:6 degrees of separation Depression Lovers Strangers
And so I did a few sketches in my sketchbook just to get Read more →
I struggled a lot to figure how I’d bind the tracing papers in because the zine pages I planned out didn’t fit the typical saddle-stitch page format.
I didn’t want to perfect bind the zine because of how thin the zine is.
So, I decided that I would attach the tracing papers separately. Didn’t like the way the water Read more →
Here, I tested out the original scans and wanted to make them usable since the original colors are pretty interesting…
The circle really tie in with the whole Chinese theme I going on here.
Exploring the color schemes of my zine pages….should I go for a blue toned menu or red toned menu? At this stage I was more or less figuring out the theme of my zine.
After doing the red version of my zine I realised that the red Read more →
My main purpose of doing the test prints were to explore the formatting of the pages. Firstly because I was not very good at InDesign…
In my sleep deprived mind that night, for some reason I thought formatting on Microsoft word might be a good solution to removing the borders from the printed images… (It wasn’t. which is why I did not Read more →
