Reflection of ZINE
This project is showing the conversation between me and my partner.
We selected 10 pictures we have taken based on our theme “Urban” to create a short zine. Keeping my images in the order in which the ‘conversation’ happened. We set one rule when we send the picture back and forwards. And we used the found poem we created in Seminar class. (We used risograph). We layout (arrange the images and text), print and assemble a small booklet. (Below)
I used Photoshop to take off other colors, and just keep one color on the image.
Reason: I think it’s pretty interesting and stand out from the other pictures.
Need to Improve: Some of the colors looks a bit weird and didn’t process really good.
Strength: The colors do stands out and created good views.
I used the giant printer (Sorry, I didn’t remember the name of the printer) to print the images.
I chose Bristol paper 14*17 inches.
Reason: It’s hard enough for me to create pops out layers and it’s not easy to break.
Things Need to Improve:
- It took such a long time to print, I’ll try to do it as soon as possible.
- The quality of the image is really good. Color changed from what I see on the computer. I may change to another printer.
- The paper is hard and created a really good texture and thickness.
- The size is uniform and stayed in a good size.
This is one of the pages shows the layers and pops out the image.
I used three layers to created it.
The first layer is the smallest paper, the second one builds up a perspective in the artwork, and the last layer is the full image to be the base.
This is the side look of the zine.
As you can see there are many layers, and I used thick foam tape.
The tape created thick layers, and I think it works really well.
We used risograph to printed the found poem on the tracing paper.
Need to improve:
I Should start to do the work earlier to make sure the quality is the best I can do. I am a bit disappointed on myself about I didn’t try my best on this project.
3D layers book is interesting, and I got some of the positive feedback from my classmate.
