World of Animals!

This is my first zine!  I'm really excited about this, and I'm sure I'm going to get hooked and make a bunch more after this class.  When I watched the latest video, I really wanted to make the no staple zine, but I think I'll save that for another time.  I also ordered "Whatcha mean what's a zine" and it just came in today; I've been looking through it, and so far I really enjoy it!  It makes me more excited than I already was... :)

======================================

Topic:

At first I was going to do a zine that just had random pages of stuff I like (to draw, or like in general).  But I felt like pages may not work well together, and I wanted something to be more harmonious.  So I've decided to work with animals!  

I love to watch shows about animals, when I research about animals (for drawings) I tend to get very imersed and read more and more, going from one animal to another.  And because of that I have a lot of random facts about some really cool (and sometimes unknown!) animals.  And I want to share that knowledge with people!  And that is what this zine will be about.  It'll have pages of animals, with random facts about them around the drawings.

=====================================

What I'd like to do:

  • Half Size zine
  • 5 pages (back and front, including cover and back)
  • so at least 18 animals (maybe more if I do more than one on some pages!)
  • I'd like to have my information on it (I really would like to use this to get my name out there)
  • I'd like 20 to 50 copies (if I order online I'll be doing 50, there's a site that'll do 50 copies of 5 b&w pages back and front for 20$ then shipping)
  • I want to staple the zine together
  • I would like to have it printed out somewhere (I don't have a printer that works).  I tried talking to someone at Kinkos, but they weren't of too much help (said that if I do it myself at the copy machine it'll be 10cents a side!! ridiculous! I was asking for them to do it, and I know places lower the price the more copies you want).  

    I would like to get it done before I fly out later this month, so that way I can pass out around at airports, but if I don't, I'll pass out on the flight back I think.  I think that may be a great way to get it passed out to people all over the country/world.

    ====================================

    AND! I was also wondering if anyone else in this class would like to do a trade maybe!  I think it would be a lot of fun!  We could send a copy of our zine to each other, in the mail if we do physical (which I will be doing).  And I think I'll have a digital copy since I will probably touch up and layout on computer, and I'll upload that to my site for people to download if they want to.

    ====================================

    Here's a sketch of a Nautilus, though I would like to add more angles I think for the zine itself, but we will see!  I really like this guy, and there's a lot I would like to share about them!
