Zine | WIP
Next, I've started to work on a zine, which will act as my guerilla marketing tactic. The zine will act as a takeaway from the COSI Exhibit (more on that later), and from other events that Nuclear Matters attends, such as rallies against climate change, and fundraisers for renewable energy.
Because of the Roy-Lichtenstein, comic book-inspired style I'm using for the project, I thought an excellent way to carry that forward while engaging my target audience of 13-20 year/olds would be to have the zine work as a mini-comic book. The first step was drawing out the panels and coming up with a story and rough draft of the layout. I had a rough idea of what the story would be when I began, but once I started drawing the layout it started to flow naturally. This could be because of my love for comic books; my childhood was filled with collecting vintage Archie comics, and reading Calvin and Hobbes, Zits, Bloom County, Get Fuzzy, and the Far Side.
