Escape from the Mainland - zine on island life with illustrations

My latest zine: Escape from the Mainland - White Reef Islands
Illustrations from my zine Escape from the Mainland - White Reef Islands
A peak at my latest zine, coming soon. EDIT: coming now!

Escape from the Mainland outlines through writing and illustrations my experiences on the White Reef Islands, a small island reef 38 km off the Bay of Plenty/Eastland peninsula, where I spent four weeks with the local community gaining inspiration for (what I plan to be) ongoing art projects in multi media. I have made illustrations of the reef along with a 2800 word description of my time there, there is also an A3 fold/pull out map (pictured here, also).

I like the zine quite a lot, but the photocopier has lame settings that make the format of the master a bit different to the copies. Oh well, nothing that can be done. The illustrations are handmade, no computer. It was quite a complicated process involving paper, brush pens, duo tone, acetate, house paint, many arguments with the photocopier. It looks good so it was all worth it.

Clicking on images will get you to a bigger version of the photo.
