My finished zine follows very closely to my original plan.
I originally planned the style for my final illustration would include my original sketches from my visit to Whitmuir Farm. So I collaged my existing illustrations with new drawings and textures. I even tried collaging in some photographic objects.
I found this process really fun as it was very tactile and there was an element of surprise in how the illustrations turned. However when compiled the together to create the long, panoramic concertina, they were less effective as they didn’t flow very well.
For the back of the book I painted a pattern of the farm fields typical of the borders countryside. I also included facts about Whitmuir so that in theory the booklet would be sold/ provided as a little artistic factual booklet.
I added colour and texture to the final illustrations to create an interesting little book.
