About the Course:
Making comics! Typography and design! Illustration! Photocopying and stapling! If you like doing some or all of these things, or if you have ever thought about making your own D.I.Y. magazine or ‘zine’ as they are commonly called, consider creating with us. Zines have long surpassed their original origins as simply “fanzines” and can now be thought of as any self-published work in small circulation. We will explore the many techniques that can make up a zine, including: cartooning, collaging, the use of digital tools, the integration of found objects, and other creative methods of illustration, with a focus on autobiographical expression through hand-made media. With the help of guest illustrators and zine experts as well as visits to local zine libraries, we will explore the history and evolution of the zine in the Bay Area and at large as we develop different visual techniques and foster the local zining community.
How to Enroll:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short bit about yourself and why you are interested in our course. Also please include an example of any type of zine-potential work you have: this can be a drawing, a margin doodle, a poem, a note found on the ground, a collage, an old photograph of your grandma, etc. We look forward to seeing what you have! We will consider this when deciding who stays in the class on the first meeting.
