Finished magazine, done over the weekend.

July 28, 2012


As expected, I've had no responses to my illustration mailout so far... sad face.

But I'm working on some short PDF portfolio 'tear sheets', which I'm going to send out to the same people (possibly annoying them in the process) and some other contacts I've collated. 

In response to the, err,  lack of response - I've decided to try and be brilliantly sort of creative over the course of this weekend and challenge myself to make a magazine. The theme is just kind of me/my bedroom at the moment. It's mainly a challenge as I only have my current Illustrator and InDesign trials for two days! (I'm very poor and can't afford them, or even a Mac for them to run on...) My trusty three-year-old Windows laptop has done me well, but fails in this department.

So I'm hoping (kind of have to) get it finished by tomorrow. I'll probably publish it on Issuu and will put a link on here. It's more of a lesson in InDesign more than anything, as I didn't even know what it was used for about a month ago.

Postcards are all labelled, stamped and ready to go! Lets hope it's all worth it...

Nearly the weekend, I can't wait to get on with things... I've been busy this week compiling my list of illustration and design contacts for a postcard mailer. 

I'm hoping to get at least one reply from sixty postcards, surely that's achievable...!

In other news, I've had a great couple of car boot/charity shop hauls over the past week or so, have made a carrot cake and let my bird fly around my room for the first time! I think he rather liked the tatse of freedom, but dutifully went back into the cage without any chasing!

As you can see, he found a variety of makeshift perches in my room.

So this weekend will be all about getting my illustration mailers ready, and keeping a very thorough spreadsheet of where/when I've sent them. Oh and today I got an email to say I've won tickets to go see Katy B at Somerset House on Sunday, so that'll be a nice end to the weekend :)
