zine corpse one

I have been playing around with the one page zine format which comes together like this

zine templateIn my case I used an eleven by seventeen sheet of paper folded it in half length wise and accordianed it as shown cut the middle seam as in the picture and your good to go I folded mine and passed it around allowing only a look at the previous page though as it often happens in a group around a table contributors to sneak a look once in a while at what others are doing The result

zine 1 foldoutYou can draw write collage spill stuff on the back as well

Collaborative zine with a friend of mine passing a few pieces of paper back and forth

corpse two-hundred six | bad geography

I changed this one up a little Instead of worrying about being sure no one saw the drawing on the other side of the fold I simply let it go and some participants even took it so far as to draw back into others drawings while others drew in protest as it seemed rules were being broken and it was a little difficult to get past that Also I was looking for options for bicycle handle bars and a friend has some and was trying to describe them so I asked her to draw them and this was the only paper I had on hand but alas they will fit my stem This same friend is also headed to Denmark in the near future so an attempt by someone else to describe where Denmark was resulted in a bit of a skewed geography lesson Once again I asked to draw it instead of a lengthy discussion of words I have been thinking about how the primary focus of this blog is visual and some of my projects I often refer to as visual correspondence and how little I write or get the inspiration to write about something rather than simply draw it so I am considering doing away with punctuation on this blogspot Any thoughts corpse open-2
