It's official, you are awesome!
In February 2021, there was a fanart event on Twitter #DE30days dedicated to side characters from (the most awsome) video game Disco Elysium. I am really down but figured that I'd like to do at least one drawing because I really love Disco Elysium and that doing something fun and creative could potentially rise my spirits up a bit. And seeing other peoples' drawings was really inspiring. In the end, I was so engrossed that I made several of them. Who could have thought ? Incredible.
So I made several black & white brush ink pen drawings, that I was pretty proud of and then I thought : let's make a zine out of it. That's because I'm also very much into zines as well since a little while. And then I discovered that there was the #ZineJam organised here on itch for zines about hobbies. What a happy coincidence ! ^-^
And when I started working on the zine I thought : let's make it more disco, let's color the drawings and aim for some weird psychedelic pop-art style. And my drawings just took on a completely different look and style ! °v°
I don't know if you like it but I like it a lot (self-praise, not entirely bad thing, anything to keep the spirits up, I say)
To spice things up a bit more, it just so happened that the amazing Nathalie Lawhead released new templates for her incredible Electric Zine Maker and the new Fancy T-cut zine layout, which in fact is real fancy, was exactly what I needed, you can see all the drawings in one spread. Yey ! ^o^
Then my kids seeing me testing the zine's layout in print, suggested I make a "Color Your Zine" version, cause they wanted to color it and I thought it was a great idea for everyone to enjoy. °v°
You can therefore print, fold and color your zine with your own trippy colors for maximum coolitude effect. ^-^
A lot of happy coincidences, and the result is right here. Done. Yupi ! ^-^
And guess what ? March is the month of #MiniZines.
That's how I'm celebrating.
Now let's play some disco.
