illustration book design fanzine

Starish

This zine was made for a dear friend of mine a few years ago. She is one of the most creative people I know. When she came to me and asked if I wanna do a project for her I said - "When do you want it ready?!"

So the assignment was to create a little book as a gift for couple of her friends. They shared a few months in Sofia together and created a lot of memories.

She gave me 12 sentences to use as chapters of their story. Some of them needed further explanation, so weird they sounded. It was up to me for the visual part entirely.

The technique is collage of real photos with custom doodles and illustrations from me.

Most of them were really fun to think of. Some of them were challenging and some - frankly disturbing.

If you don't believe me google it.

The cover was a spontaneous decision - my friend likes unicorns and I though it's a good starting point. Then the universe, the unity and the concrete texture came on their own.
