This is my new zine. It's 32 B&W 8.25"x11" pages, with a one color blue cover. The title is "I See All". It's an alphabet zine, where each page I draw everything I could think of for each letter. The drawings are from February 2011 to January 2012. You can pick it up from me or my etsy.
The title comes from this. I found this 5 volume set in a bookstore in Glasgow and bought all of them for £5. It would have cost me $120 to ship it back to the US, so I gave it to Marceline Smith who was super kind enough to show us around that day. You can see what was inside here. Marci spotted it, cause I use the words "I See It All" in my paintings, and it was also the title of my last book. Although I was already drawing my zine, it was just a nice title to reference. Cause it's a book with images of everything you could have thought of (in 1926).
I just settled on "I See All" cause it sounded better than "Alphabet Book" or "A to Z". And yeah, it just made a lot of sense.
I compiled lists of words for every letter and tried jamming as many images as I could. Some letters were harder than other and there were a few regrets of images I forgot to draw or couldn't fit on a page. It would take about a day and a half to compile the list from Crossword websites, dictionaries, Wikipedia, ect. Making the list made me really good at Words with Friends.
When I had to order my zines and lay it out I had 6 extra pages so I didn't know what to fill them up with, so I put this herring bone pattern in for 4 of them.
Filling up another page with a random drawing.

I made a volcano painting. All I have is netflix, so I watch a lot of nature documentaries. The Nova one on Sierra Negra is pretty good.
The color of the sky is like Cobalt Teal which is like $11 for 2oz of paint, so you kind of have to make it worth it. The orange and yellow is a mixture of Naples Yellow and Parchment and variations of mixtures with other yellows and Indo Orange Red. I have all this yellow and red that sort of went hard cause I never use them. This paragraph is probably as boring to read as it was to write.
I listened to Bossypants by Tina Fey while painting this out. That book is really short for being so big. If you're a lady and you like Tina Fey then you might like that book. It won't put you to sleep like this other book I was listening to called uh, Four Fishes.
