Above is the completed zine. I am happy with how it turned out and it allowed me to experiment with paint thoroughly. I also discovered a new technique i enjoyed - using the clipping mask to create a unique colour from the paint samples onto the typography. This worked out really well as i wanted the typography to link in some way.
Here are my automatic drawings. I did this while listening to each song and automatically painted what i felt. I simply used black paints to do this. I then edited them on Photoshop but not too drastically, only altering the contrast slightly and removing the backgrounds.
These are the artworks i made that are going towards the zine. I made these by experimenting with coloured inks and water. After i made these i got round to editing the colours and contrasts on Photoshop so i got different variations.
Starting to think about ideas for the zine. I decided to go with the idea of showing emotion through songs. Because Eminem and his music have been a massive influence to me for the past few years i decided to go with his music. I picked a couple of songs that i liked the most and went from there, figuring out how i was going to produce the zine effectively.
