I'm back with another update on the Crucial Changes photozine
. All the photos are precessed from the 2009 year, and I'm really happy how the last batch turned out. For the last few days, I have been assembling the photo pages and getting more familiar with the book building process with PDF's
. I'd say that I have about 1/3rd of the photo pages finished, and for fun I decided to make another zine mock up to see how the pictures will look printed. I put together a 22 page zine tonight, and I'm really happy with how things are looking so far. When this project is done, there is a possibility that the zine could be over 40 pages total. Check out the progress I've made so far:
Here I am at the Crucial Changes HQ working on the layout jammin
' out to some Misfits.
Here is the cover of the zine again. This time for fun, I put native Nebraskan and golden era pro wrestler Gorgeous George on the cover. There is still time to vote for the local band that makes the actual cover
Here is a sample layout of how the photo pages will look. I think by the time the final draft is ready, I'll make the photos smaller and put 4 pics on the page instead of 3. I also want to darken my background graphics a bit as well. Oops! I just realized that 2 of those photos are identical.
Here is a really cool 4-photo vertical shot page. I really like how this looks. The text on the opposite page is re-print of a local contributed show review.
Here is an experiment with medium format photos. I'd like to shrink them down a little so I can get 3 pics on the page. On the opposite is a re-print of my interview with Accidental Therapy.
That's it for now. My next zine update should be a 100% completed mock up, and soon after a finished, polished ready to buy photozine
. Comment/question freely. Peace.
