Tonight I watched a really great Skillshare class - Making Your First Zine: From Idea to Illustration by Kate Bingaman-Burt. (I'm making a mental note to add her to my Instagram roll which I'm working hard to finish up so maybe you can discover some new creatives, too!)
I loved everything about this class. I adore Kate's dynamic personality and how she really shines in front of the camera. I love her studio and workspace - it's a delicious explosion that had me continuously hitting the pause so I could get a closer look. And I was really drawn into the funky crazy world of indie magazines.
I chose to watch this class because of a couple of other projects that i'm putting on my shelf of possibilities. This class was simple and straightforward and Kate encourages students to just dive in and do it without overthinking the process. Part of the appeal of indie 'zines is that hand done feel. The process of design and manufacture is a great part of the appeal. After watching this class I think I may be moving those projects up closer to the top of the pile.
