the concept trials of "THNK" magazine. A self promoting zine. Take one involves a concept showcasing my artwork in a mock form of a traditional book. The Project's first step was to draw up an appealing, attention grabbing illustration for the cover of the book. Since the first concept involes around "my" artwork, what more fitting then a self portrait.
After creating a self satisfying self portrait of sort, the next process was scanning the image and designing a the book cover for "THNK" magazine. The idea was based around this website. Matching it. But I was completely satisfied with it. Then i got the idea. Why not match the idea of the tentacles coming out of my head with a tentacle book tie, to hold the book closed. So i creating a tentacle that would start as part of the back cover and insert into the ear of my illustration to hold the book shut. perfect.
After printing and cutting the cover out, it was time to finish up. After designing the inner pages with text and my artwork, it was time to put it together. The cover had old newspaper glued to the inside, so i wanted the end papers of the zine to match, since I was trying to mock a traditional style book. After everything was finalized. It came out something like this.
