Hello, before today I never heard of zines. But as soon as I saw the examples in the videos of this classes I recognized them. I just did not know they where called zines ;-).
Today I made a rough draft of the idea that I want to work out. I guess each of us has experienced at some point in their life a breakdown. Sometimes a big one,sometimes smaller ones. That typical bad-day-feeling. That kind of day when you are you fighting against yourself and nothing lifts up your spirit.
Those days you need a first aid kit. A reminder of what to do when you have a day like that. So I want to make a First Aid Kit zine. And this is the first draft and quick sketch.
I think I want to use some colour and maybe some sparkles (it just pops up in my head), because you need some brigthness and colours on these kind of days.
I also want to make a cool poster on the back. Page 7 will be switched with the back cover.
And when it is finished I am going to put it in my wallet. So I have it with me all the time, because you never know when you need a little reminder ;-). I think it can also be nice tot give to a friend who is having a bad day.
The thing I struggle with is to make the foldings neatly. It looks well as I am folding but in the end I still get that the zine is just not as neatly as I want it to be. You see the folds at the back of the zine..
As soon as I have a new version of the zine I will post it here.
