This all started when one bored illustration student said to another, 'hey, let's make a little 'zine. Just for funsies.' The other responded, 'okay.'

And so the Bored Illustration Students mini-zine was born.

Once a week, the class' Head Procrastinator folds up some cheap paper into a mini-zine, and wanders around the studio, looking for bored-looking students, who are then asked to quickly doodle an image onto a single side of the mini-zine. Each week has a different theme, and only bored students can participate.

The resulting double-sided, 16-segment mini-zine is then scanned, printed, cut and folded and available for purchase by the rest of the class. To keep costs down the images are restricted to black and white and are printed on both sides of a single sheet of A4 paper.

All those taking part are second year illustration students at Falmouth University, Cornwall. For contact details and personal websites of those who have contributed so far please check out the 'WHO ARE WE' page.

This blog exists mostly to keep a record of the zines, and to promote them to a wider audience. Enjoy!
