my zine, as some of you know already, is about being sneaky. it's something that i've always excelled at, and it's usually unintentional. but it happens a lot anyway. well, i've been thinking of ways to incorporate my own personal sneaking experiences into my zine, but it seems that the sneaking i do is on a small scale. relatively. i mean, most people don't sneak as much as me, but if i were to make a zine about it, i kind of feel like it should be epic sneaking. anyway, i've been checking out images of sneaking and thinking of sneaky scenarios to include.
there's different levels of sneaking that can be conveyed in an image. for instance, there's the actual act of sneaking, that could look something like this:
then, you have the "i got caught sneaking":
(and really, who better to illustrate that than britney spears?)
and also, we have conceptual sneaking. i know a guy named peter, and he has a van. it's name is sneaky pete. in fact, "sneaky pete" is written on the side of it. i don't know, it seems that you can't get any sneakier (or shadier) than a salmon and cream-colored van with no windows in the back that's named sneaky pete. by the way i'm totally serious. i have pictures. but my point is, without the concept of being a sneaky van, it probably couldn't possibly have been sneaky, ever, in it's life, because nothing could stick out more.
that brings me to another point. there is a difference between being sneaky and being creepy.
i'm still working on incorporating different styles of sneaking into my zine illustrations, but i seem to be getting better at it. if i ever get a chance to use a scanner, i will put up some of my illustrations so far.
