The E-zine bonanza
During the April 2020 UK lockdown I've become intrigued by zine making, in particular Austin Kleon's zine creations using cut-outs and black-outs of existing materials.
I've tried making a couple of physical booklets but I wanted to create something I could easily share for others to enjoy so I've turned to e-zines that can be downloaded in PDF format by simply clicking on the images or links below.
My Life in Lockdown: A silly poem originally devised to make a paper zine. However, paper zines are complicated to distribute so I've created a PDF version and gone mad with Photoshop and InDesign in the way you can when there are no deadlines to worry about... Download PDF.
Duet Furioso: This is a piece of music-inspired madness in which brash, disonant avant garde music meets the violent mayhem of the Spy vs Spy strip cartoon. The cover does not really give much impression of what's going on inside here... Download PDF.
Once Round the Park and Back: A photo zine comprised of pictures taken during a single walk around a local park. The weather was good so I just took a simple SLR and standard lens. No art lenses or flashy accessories - just looking, shooting and moving swiftly on. Download PDF.
