First Stabs in New Zineland

I decided I'd like to make a zine containing three stories I've written, "Dog on the Roof," "Coney Island in Winter," and "Who-Dust." Here's my first try so far.

Some CD Covers

Rilo Kiley: More Adventurous
I know the type in the first picture is crazy-horrible, but I think it could work if I just really focused. I'm more interested in the direction embodied in the last two versions.

She & Him: Volume 2
This music is saccharine-sweet, so I wanted to make a cover that reflected that. My original plan was to spell out the name of the band in Candy Buttons, but I had a hard time finding the correct size. This version is just a trial until I can find the real deal.

Against Me!: I Was a Teenage Anarchist
I'm not a big Against Me! fan, but I thought their original cover could be improved. The first version is a literal interpretation that will need some more work/research. The second version involves an inverted die-cut crown that reveals some plaid flannel, to which an Against Me! patch will be pinned on the inside of the cover... could be interesting...

Updates to Fetish Book

So, this is what I've been working on this week. I'm not satisfied, and plan to keep working. I find that sometimes I just need to take a break for a couple days in order to figure things out. I think I have something to say, I'm just hitting a wall right now.
