Zine. from Erich Bollmann, Artist-in-Residence

What happens to all the news stories that slip through the cracks?  How can a reader gain new knowledge from the mass of information that confronts us daily?  The artists in Drawing I sought to answer these questions, culling through newspapers, magazines, and online news sites to gather a collection of current news stories that may have been overlooked.  Taking on the role of creative journalist, each artist then created a drawing or illustration for each news article.  This group of stories and drawings covers everything from Liu Xiaobo, the recent Nobel Peace Prize recipient; to the commemoration of a WWII Polish soldier bear, to even a mouse being found in a jar of curry sauce.

The drawings and stories have been collected in Drawing I’s first collaborative zine effort, “Unseen News: A Current Events Zine” which is limited to an edition of 50.  This zine offers a special insight into the varying interests and artistic talents of 13 creative people seeking to uncover what may have been overlooked.  “Unseen News” will officially launch at the Parent’s Weekend exhibition in Parks Gallery, get your copy before they’re gone!
