After finding the correct text that could fit with my picture, I planned for my zine per brief says with 12 pages.
cover and back page
For my cover, i wanted a cut out of a circle which reveals part of the content on the second page.
I also had text that i thought it would fit very well as the start of my book. I tried putting it in various positions, however, considering the cut out, that was one of the nicer position where i could position my text at. however suddenly, i thought of wanting the words to be seen, as the title for my book. I wanted to be to printed on a tracing paper, this will create a double layer effect for the cover or the book.
I created a mock up to see how it would look like if the circle is cut.
revealing only part of the picture. Emphases on “time and cycle”
Effect after having the tracing paper. The words will be right beside the clock needle
However, after consultation with Prof Ina, she gave alot of wonderful ideas and also suggested me to add a few more pages to beef up my zine. We played around with this full page spread and created a few interesting pages to add into my zine
while i was drawing and painting this, i did have the idea of it being able to work as an whole painting, but also by individual parts of the painting. I am glad that this would be able to be presented in my zine. It also acts adds variation of pages in my zine.
After adding the page of tracing paper, i still have 4 pages that are empty.
And then, I realised that there was still a piece of watercolour that I forgot to include in my current zine. I added in the hummingbird drawing. I was very concerned by the empty page before my final page, which had content on. My final page has a feather that had dropped and landed. I decided to make my past page a page where the feathers are floating. I drew and painted another piece and it fits beautifully to my layout.
