CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR ISSUE 2!!
The theme is: Fashion! That can be whatever. Whatever fashion means to you. Your experiences with it, funny jokes, pictures of ugly babies in suits, essays about fashion and its place in this h*cked up postmodern capitalist world, suitboy
You can put submissions here or pm/discord them to me, Dalm. If you put em here, make sure you take them down before the zine goes live so folks have to download the whole thing rather than just check this thread.
- The word Sumptuously 10,000 times
- Photoshop Art.
Submissions should be sized for A5 sized paper at 600 dpi. A5 is 210 x 148 mm, but we'll be using a 10mm margin, so try to keep the important details of your page at 160 x 108 mm. You can set a guide to this length in GIMP if you're working digitally. This prevents stuff from getting cut off if we decide to print it physically. All art should be greyscale so that it's cheap to print.
In GIMP these settings should look like this:
Lastly, for scanned submissions, collages etc, scan them in 600 dpi if you can. This will make them look nice when scaled down for print res. For monochrome or dithered pieces, like the two Contrast pieces in the previous issue, do not create them at A4 res, as the downscaling will cause detail loss and ruin the hard pixel look.
No violence/gore/porn or whatever. Tasteful nudity is fine (but send it in a PM. Don't post it on the forums cos thats weird.) No steamed hams.
folks who submit keep full ownership of their intellectual property, and also get the right to distribute/make copies of/remix/whatever the zine in any way.
This isn't paid or anything i just thought it'd be fun to make a lil zine, but if you want you can sell copies once it's finished.
The cover has my name on it right now, but I can add people's names and handles as appropriate. You can also opt to remain anonymous.
If ya have any questions ask away.
