New Zine.



Here are some illustrations from the zine I'm just finishing up for the last of this years assessment. This has been a photoshop heavy exercise and I feel as though I have really 'skilled up' this term. Nonetheless I'm two weeks past the deadline with an extension and my pervasive health problems have me literally dragging myself towards the finishing line.

The zine is about the years I spent in my twenties bedridden/housebound. It is a story ostensibly told through the fashion trends I subsequently missed out on. I can't wait to get it to the printers tomorrow and will post more of the finished product when  get I it back. Zines are lot of fun - I recommend them for anyone in need of a bit of self expression. Anyway beter get back to work.

I don't know much about you, but being bedridden sounds awful. Aim sorry to hear you had such serious health problems. I love this work, my favorite is the third picture. Love the red!

Hey Luna, the illustrations are looking great. I know I have said it before but I do like your drawing style. I hope you are feeling better and good luck with the deadlines. Bedridden sounds a lot better than the reality I am sure. x
