A light-hearted threefold zine, full of hand drawn typography and writing about ways to be happy.

Again all drawn with fine liner (0.3mm and 0.5mm) and coloured with horrible felt pens.

Philomathy

3/Jun/12

The first zine in Zine-A-Day, called Philomathy by Christie Powers.This zine is concentrating on hand drawn typography and elements of illustration. These few shots show some of the words I chose for today’s zine. Eventually, it will be staple bound.

Enjoy and let me know if you want one for yourself, more pictures will be uploaded soon onto cargocollective.

A philomath is a lover of learning, from Greek philos (“beloved,” “loving,” as in philosophy or philanthropy)

 

Skate Deck

2/Jun/12

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

I went out and brought a cheap deck and spray painted it white the rest is all hand drawn with a sharpie. More to come I hope.

Let me know what you think.

Asking all you hip guys and girls whether Deathly High should include this in our next set of shirts. Let us know.

We are now on facebook, let’s be friends 🙂

This is today’s doodle. It began as a bunch of dots, then I turned them into shapes and patterns and incorporated some typography. I made this with my 0.4mm pen on A4 paper, got it onto illustrator and vectorised it. I’m really happy with this and believe it should be seen bigger so I included some close up screen shots. I see this piece as a celebration of shape. I hope you enjoy it.

An A4 doodle, photographed then vectorised. Originally done with 0.1mm black pen. I’ve included some close ups too. I really enjoyed creating this as once it was finished it reminded me of summer. Hopefully I can experiment with adding colour in the future and maybe some more typography!

Summer inspired watercolour.

A second book design which also includes my very own illustrations and typography, all hand drawn. This project has really opened my eyes to different ways of creating images, whether it’s the media used or the method.
