When creating a zine, a gif makes the content you include more interactive and fun and I wanted to create gifs that had a minimal approach. I found the GIF process difficult at first however i enjoyed learning how to create them as it also taught me more about photoshop. I created 4 gifs; the majority of the images coming from the content of my zine. ( all gifs need to be clicked on)
For this project, when focusing on illustration life drawing was a good session to be in as it taught you about proportion and the ability to draw what is actually infant of you rather than from what you know. I’m not a strong drawer so i was sceptical about these sessions; although i have done life drawing before i was not taught the technical skills with drawing. I found it difficult at the beginning when having to draw blind as i found myself just staring at the page however further on into the sessions it became my favourite method of drawing. Therefore i decided to transfer these skills into my zine sketchbook where i produced some illustrations that were a reflection of aspects of Stuart Semple’s ( the artist i’m looking at) work.
