Raspa Magazine
Illustration, Drawing, Illustrated Type
Front and back cover
Zavala created illustration work for the fifth issue of Raspa. Having worked on branding and design for Raspa since issue one with a variety of contributing artists. There had recently been a change in printers and, where past issues used to have full color interior pages, the magazine was attempting only black and white interior pages. This printing was also challenging in it's limited range of grays, used mostly for text. The illustrations are in black ink with pen nib and staff. Each illustration, with exception of the floral illustrations, were inspired by lines of the poetry within the issue. Each work is an attempt to express the most striking text in the poetry.
