Yuck ‘n Yum Spring 10
It’s my birthday! So here’s a review I wrote a few days ago of an art zine.
This zine features mostly visual work from seventeen different creators. There doesn’t seem to be any sort of theme and the contents ranges from the fairly detailed (and neat looking) cover by Paul Milne, to drawings that appear to have been done by a child and don’t interest me much.
Among the more interesting pieces are “disagreeable media fucks to look out for part 1” by Skint. This piece features the names of various media figures (Murdoch, Coulter, Cowell, and so on) in a large, hand written, 3-d block font. Yeah, it’s not exactly cutting edge, but I still liked it.
I also enjoyed the centre spread by Iain Laurie, which was a comic featuring a guy trapped in a place filled with horrible monsters. I really liked the monsters which Laurie designed and illustrated, and the only problem with this piece is that it clearly wasn’t submitted with a high enough dpi and thus looks rather pixelated. Dang.
