Black and Blue - an inspirational zine

Words have become my constant, as an artist and writer.
At last.

The above images are from a zine I created specifically for a writer at Nanowrimo during the July campnanowrimo. I will upload it at some point and have it available online hopefully, but if anyone would like to have a digital copy just send me a message or leave a comment.
Spent a full day working on the zine and then putting it together was an interesting process, playing with and resizing images and text so the file was a smaller size and easily transferable. 
Idea of the zine is that is it an inspiring goodybag with images and words and phrases. Black and Blue is a play on that idea of physcially being beaten, a great metaphor, but one I wanted to soften and maybe tilt onto its head, implying that the process of writing can somtimes make you sore and leave you with bruises or areas that are are sesntitive too.
Again note the play with fonts and found words.
