I have decided on some hopefully humorous and lighthearted text that I feel helps to explain my the images but not to bore the reader with finite details.
princess page for zine
I have also decided on a order for my images and how they will be arranged in a book format; including which will be the cover, back cover and inside cover.
I have used a scan of my early sketchbook drawings of my collection for the inside cover. I feel that this helps to keep the whole project tied into together and help to particularly keep the theme of spoons clear as it is possible that it has been lost slightly in the character design part of it.
The book will be printed as a pamphlet and will be sewn together at the fold.
Using designs and ideas from my sketchbook and other ideas I have had, below is my final images for my zine for the collections exhibition.
I have yet to decide on the final text for each page and on the final layout.
I have decided that I would like my zine to be in the style of an artbook, showing my character in varying poses and positions; as well as additional characters and scenarios.
I want to keep the overall feel of the zine lighthearted and humorous as well.
Following a Photoshop session I decided to try and draw out two of my spoons using digital techniques I had learned.
This exercise helped me to simplify the shapes further and experiment with added texture easily, a process I may end up using in my work further.
My collection that I am using for the collections project is Spoons. I have gathered a range of decorative spoons from local charity shops and around my home.
I have researched some artwork that use spoons in them however am unsure at the moment as to which direction my final imagery will go.
I feel looking at these has given me more ideas for drawing them rather than how I can build a project around them.
