Wrote/drew on paper and realized today’s stationery matches! A pleasant surprise ✨

Guess Affinity can't fully replace Indesign for me 

😭 Seems like regular PDF export (non-booklet) does work and preserve 1-bit color space though?!

Or at least my test print leads me to believe...it prints crisply.

But then that doesn't solve the 2-up booklet auto pagination reshuffling self-printing issue 🤷

Affinity suite + 1-bit + printing zines 

sad day when I find out the I've layouted in Affinity Publisher can't export into printable "booklet" PDF file properly without compressing our 1-bit images...?! Also looks like their Photo won't ever support 1-bit color space forum.affinity.serif.com/index so can not recc for pure b/w art/comic workflow...

I also finished all my pages and feel great! So moving on to the cover...

Cover concept by @PowersWithin (derivative of the Kiwami game package) and then I took it closer to the finish line 🖋️ HAHAHA this is the print version aka the "KAMI" edition.

Added terrible drop shadow / bevel / 3d effects on the text to make it authentically less legible 🤣

Whoever did the original Yakuza English brushwork logo did some pretty nice stuff...that I couldn't replicate, of course.

I wanted to play fair and drew the rest of 4*Town. A rare attempt at drawing heart throbs...(it is very challenging)
