CACOPHANY is a short illustrated zine based on the Zine Idea Generator prompt "make a horror zine that exaggerates instruments you wish you could play." A collection of 8 musical instruments, from the unsettling to the downright grotesque. Downloads include a digital copy of the zine and a file formatted for print.

Content warning: body horror, blood/gore.

PRINT INSTRUCTIONS: you will need two pieces of 8.5x11 paper - one for the cover and one for the interior pages (the cover may be printed on card stock if you prefer). Print the cover file at 100% scale, and trim the paper in half vertically (discard/recycle bottom half). Next, print page 1 at 100% scale, then reload the same paper face up to print page 2 at 100% scale on the back. Trim this paper in half vertically, then fold each pair of interior pages in half, stack in order with the cover, and staple!

Cool zine!

Absolutely horrific! I printed and assembled the zine just now and it is such a delight. Your choice of instruments is A++. So much variety! And everything looks so creepy and unsettling. The bag pipes are really disgusting, the harp with the strings going between the teeth of the skull is so much fun but my favourite may just be the mouth harp. The implications of the thorns/spikes are really chilling. You put so much detail and thought into each design and I love them very much

I love your style, both visual and writing. You do beautiful work.
