I made a zine

These notes from ‘The Transformation of Eve’, by Robert Martensen (from a fantastically interesting book Sexual Knowledge, Sexual Science), prompted a swift leap into the craft of the 1-page zine.  It kinda counts as my first contribution to the 24 Hour Zine Thing, too, but I guess the components of its conception had been brewing away for a good week before the act.  The passage which sparked this zine’s inception was from a medieval French medical study called Secrets des dames, and reads thusly:

‘And whosoever were to take a hair from the pubis of a woman and mix it with the menses and then put it in a dung-heap, would at the end of the year find wicked venomous beasts.’

[I’VE JUST REALISED I SPELLED VENOMOUS WRONG IN MY NOTES AND THEREFORE THE ZINE – ASS!]

Nuts.  Ah well, here’s how the layout went (gotta have some more fun with paper folds and flaps and all they might suggest):

Little White Woody – LWL Twitter Competition

Yay!  Only a day or two after I see Manhattan for the first time, Little White Lies gifts me with drawing exercise.

I did this:

One day drawing pressure is a good thing, I should do this stuff more often.  It’s not the greatest drawing, but I did it and it’s finished, and that is vast improvement for me.   Ain’t heard nothin’ ’bout no iPad being won by no one neither.
