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 the cut outs.
I came across this image, and I thought about illustrating in the same way the ingredients of different alcohol, but given that mine was more towards beer rather than cocktails, it seems a bit out of context plus I did not know the ingredients of Jack Daniel’s alcohol.
Given I did not want to make it too complicated, I decided to settle for alcohol spills as my overall theme. It easily conveys the idea that my zine would be about alcohol as when people see the marks of red circles, they would relate it to alcohol spills made by glass cups.
