To start, I was really excited about making a zine, I love making books and publications and I'm really into the whole DIY aspect of zine making and their history of spreading ideas, opinions and art.
I did struggle getting started on this though, I tend to overthink and struggle to reach decisions on which ideas to go with, or what I should draw or include in my work but the fact that we only had a couple of days to complete this helped spur me on a little bit.
I ended up just drawing and playing with ideas/thoughts that I'd already had. I haven't been able to do much reading over the summer so haven't read a lot of Atwoods' work so sometimes I feel like I'm at a bit of a loss for material to work with and as though I'm running behind but I tried to do the best with what I had!
I ended up just going with a pretty simple set up, illustrating ideas I already had, including some information about the author and some quotes and excerpts from her writing. We were told to keep it simple so that's what I'm trying to do rather than fretting over every single detail! hopefully this will come out looking ok!
