Gallery Visits

The red star over Russia inspired me to look further into collage. I was particular intrigued at looking into using white space much like how they had cut out people out of pictures as to remove them from history. The colour schemes where vibrant and eye catching which made them very rememberable, something that is important in a zine. The main thing I took from the exhibition however was how the illustrations had brought people together. This has become my overall goal within this project, to bring people together through the illustrations. Wether that is by illustration shared experiences or tapping into a group of people that have the same political and social ideas.

Book Binding

Once I got the hang of the book binding class I wanted to look further into what other stitchings I could use. My favourite was the lighting bolt. When looking at my zine I need to be aware of how much of the page will be cut when binding the book together.
