I started playing around with a photograph of Pussy Riot that I thought was interesting. I liked the brightness of the colours of their clothes contrasted with the darkness of the background. I edited the image on the computer to give different coloured versions, along with a black and white, photocopied style one.
I then started playing around with colour by colouring by hand over the photocopied image and then by cutting parts of the images out. I felt that the hand drawn version looked cartoonish and was interesting enough and the first attempt at a cut out image (the method many zines use) was even more boring. I decided to try another method.
