Zombies


A lot of people are still worried about Zombies, despite the fact that one man has come up with a comprehensive solution to all zombie-related problems: the chainsaw suit, as proposed by the legendary Kris Straub.


Also did a bit more work on my night girl:

The Truth about Zombies!

It's been a long time since I last posted, but I couldn't possibly resist the topic of zombies!

The Truth about Zombies


Through the means of books,
films and folklore,
We have come to associate
zombies with gore.

We think of them as
relentless and driven
With an insatiable need
to feed on the living.

But the zombies are tired
and frankly, distressed
At the public's perception
and all the bad press!

There's no denying it;
yes, they are dead,
But they claim their presence
is not something to dread.

The first misconception
is their terrible moan,
But a decomposed voice-box
makes only one tone.

Their feeding on flesh
is the second big issue,
Though they say they'd be happy
eating non-human tissue.

Being bitten and turned
is the biggest nightmare,
But they say it's genetic
and incredibly rare.

So perhaps the zombies
aren't as bad as we feared,
Though they smell pretty bad
and act a bit weird.

Now they have me convinced.
Zombies are grand.
Then one lunges forward
and grabs onto my hand!

I'm pulled to the ground,
rotted hands restrain,
But they ignore my screams
as they devour my brain.

So I roam around now
with my intestines hanging out,
Because I made the mistake
of suspending my doubt.

But that's the thing
'bout those filthy brain-suckers.
You can't trust any
of those rotten, dead fuckers!

Zombies... Aw crap.



































That sudden calm moment of resignation when you know there's no way out this time.

Zombies!!


Okay, so it's m0re the zombie hunter than the ACTUAL zombies, but you say 'zombie' & I hear 'Zombieland' :D The idea of putting Emma Stone's red hair against something dark was appealing...plus it's Emma Stone haha!

Zombie Queen of Hearts




















Aghhh I've been so crap at posting :( Sorry! So here is March's theme....Zombies! I love card games. I just wish I could remember how to play them, even Snap gets a bit fuzzy now and then.

Zombies

Abandoned in space after the Cold War, astronauts CHMPy and Mira Gagarin battle the zombie apocalypse. Characters by me and Peter Loftus.

The Things That Protect You at Night


I've been going back to basics and avoiding my MacBook Pro a lot lately and I'm loving it. I'd forgotten what it's like to try and make a marker last 'till the entire background is coloured in, haha. Anyway, I'd given up on submitting anything for this month's post until I heard the familiar sound of the Garda Horses passing my bedroom window. I wanted to do something different to my usual stuff (whether that worked or not is up for debate though) so I broke out the marker and coloured pencils. I messed about with the levels a wee bit after scanning and darkened the black ('cause thanks to the aforementioned marker-wastage it was a tad patchy), but aside from that it's 100% traditional.

Things That Protect You At Night

Painted in watercolour and finished in Photoshop. I always wanted to draw Gizmo, Animal and Totoro, so I put them all in one piece! :) They make a great team!!
