Dead Cat - the work of Matthew Gaffen



A zine, according to that great web-based phenomina WIKIPEDIA, is as follows:

'A zine—an abbreviation of the word fanzine, and originating from the word magazine—is most commonly a small circulation, non-commercial publication of original or appropriated texts and images. More broadly, the term encompasses any self-published work of minority interest.'

To summarize: A zine is an artist's, usually small print run publication. Zines can be incredibly facinating, inventive, and informative. Occasionally you might find one you really connect with and feel the need to pay for.

The reason why zines are suddenly peaking my interest is because all last week I have been making my own for the latest project. It's called '47' - a number you will come to realise I have an OCD-like fixation with. Actually, here's a link which I found by chance on the net.

47 the zine - is a twisted children's book based on the first scene of a novel in which a young girl commits suicide

My room is making steady progress, it is now covered in lining paper and looks as such:

I just realised I should mention that the game is NOT my work. Someone else put a lot of hard work into it, so check out their sites, Other one
