Zine Making: Accessible Expression


Popularly know as a DIY way to self publish writing and art. Zines are created by people interested in political issuespunk culture, 1 or even cult TV shows 2, and movies. Zines are a way to share thoughts to your community and beyond. We used the medium to create miniature E-Books. People were inspired to create books of poetry, cookbooks, and photo experimentations.

The first class focused on photoshop (handout here 3), showing students how to edit stock photos to create something completely new. On the second class we introduced the website BeFunky 4. A free photo editing site where people were able to play with, and edit their photos quickly and easily. The ones below were made by Susan who said "[she] had always wanted to make greeting cards".

Check out some other cool zines at the bottom of this post!
