I remember when I was making this zine, there was Christopher Nolans first Batman on TV and I got the idea from there.
Must say, Cristian bale was bit different than the Batman in my zine, but it was quarantine time going on.
Oh and the feature picture has nothing to do with this zine. Last night I was watching Terminator movie, where Terminator was called “Pops” because he was so damn old. He even had some mechanical problems with his robot hands.
This makes me thinking: “How old he can go..?” It the living tissue over the exoskeleton get older like human..? Could he have some sort of robotic-dementia?
Killing all them people, because primary functions are shutting down.
So came the Terminator: Rise of the Nursing home idea. Should I tell this idea to James Cameron?
Dunno, let’s get on with this miniature zine, where Gothams dark knight has pretty many “normal” problems to solve.
Have to admit, the quarantine time made me do art which had so much influence from the Covid-19 situation.
So many times I found myself doing drawings, or zines related with ongoing situation.
This scrapbooking/drawing style I have mastered when I was just a kid.
There were no Internet or any place, (except library) for copying art or cartoons.
Mainly scrapbooking stuff came from old magazine and random advertisements posters.
I remember those small magazines which had one small page, full size of band shirts to mail order.
If there was small picture about some band shirt, I did use a magnifying glass and draw it to the paper.
Also I went to the library to see old LP records, to copy cover art.
If you put all this together, you’ve got scrapbooking, drawing zines.
Oh happy memories… These days, only few clicks and you got everything you can imagine. Can’t say “everything was better”
