Paul Sketchbook #4

So for my Zine I plan on basing it around complete misinformation on a wide range of topics. This idea came from watching the BBC mini-show "Look Around You", wherein a seemingly real edutainment video completely lies to your face. The Look Around Yous are so well done that I think it would be a great idea to try and pull something like it off in Zine form.

As for the illustrations, I was thinking about creating the entire thing as if it were an airline safety manual. So it would just be really simple people with blank smiles on their faces, taking part in completely misleading tutorials on everything.

love it! Great idea, but the trick is pull off the tutorials in a smart way, like the video. I would HIGHLY suggest that you bounce your ideas off SEVERAL people before committing to them yourself. Often times things like this may sound funny to you and then they don't work for others, so make sure to test them. I'd be happy to talk to you about them in class.
