happy halloween

Happy Halloween from the Zombie Queen ... as George Romero would say ... stay scared!
Anyways, it's been a super busy last couple of days with the art show and everything. Did a whole bunch of zombie portraits, met a lot of interesting people and generally had a great time. I am now hooked on the whole idea of going to conventions and I'm starting to preplan my next year and I hope to attend at least 3 or 4 different comic and zombie conventions.

Giving away art all this month has proven to be more difficult than I originally thought. Sure it's easy enough to find people that want it, but just to keep the updates rolling on schedule is tricky. I didn't totally fail but I didn't score 100% either. To all those that won stuff, it should be at your door soon.

Today I am giving away the last prize - my current 2 prints, a magnet and a sketchcard and whatever other nifty little junk I have lying around. If you want it then you have to tell me why you want it, on this blog.

Give me a good reason, write me a poem, BEG, but just post something. If you don't post on this blog you won't win. Good luck.

october 28

the count down to halloween is in the single digits - you can count the days with 1 hand, even if you're missing some fingers. It's also the evening before my Debut show at posers gallery, and I've been working like a mad scientest trying to get everything done.

Because of that, the contests have suffered a little bit ... so what I'm giving away today is this ... to 3 people I will send a book mark, a black and sketchcard and a sticker from the people at zombies and toys ... all you HAVE to do is comment, like or retweet.

Day 26

There is no image today ... it's been a super busy day getting ready for the first ever Dark Art exhibit at Posers Gallery - my works are the featured works and it's gotten me very excited and nervous. On Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th I will be at the gallery doing drawing demos as well as zombie portraits. If you would like to be zombified, from now until the end of October a 4 x 6 watercolored portrait is only $15. If you want to see yourself with undead eyes, send me an email and we'll make it happen.

Yesterday's winner is Martin Brandt - if you want to win a sketchcard, just let me know which horror villan or hero you would like have me draw and one random winner will get their choice drawn, colored and mailed to him/her. Comment here or on facebook to enter.

Cheers .. .

day 25 - deadpool, zombie hunter

I love Deadpool. Issue 98 of the new mutants is when I first decided I was going to draw superheros ... if Rob Liefeld could do it, anyone could. Right? ( To be fair, at the time I thought his artwork was theBOMB, but as I grew in experience I started seeing all the flaws, still, he was a huge influence. ) And now I draw zombies, and Deadpool looks like a zombie without his mask, so it all ties in. I think he would have a great time killing zombies. He would probably get quite creative.

A N Y W A Y S . . .

If you want to win this card, all you need to do is comment on which comic or artist changed your life. So comment to win ... and GO!

day 19 - celebrity zombies

Well ... seems like I couldn't give away yesterdays prize ... nobody wanted her ... she wasn't pretty enough, or maybe not enough blood ... whatever the reason she has now been DAMNED TO HELL!!!! And the only person strong enough to damn another person to hell is shown above.

Who is she? You leave a comment with the correct guess, you're entered to win. If you guess incorrectly, you'll be damned to hell for getting it wrong. She is THAT strong. She can raise you high and make you famous, or tear you down in to a shadow of yourself. Thank goodness she's retiring ... or is she?

day 14 - zombie eyes

If this sees you ... you're already dead. It won't stop until it has ripped out your throat, chewed on your arm and saved your brains in a zip lock baggy for later consumption. Well ... it would do that if it wasn't already hanging on your wall.

You do want it on your wall don't you? If you do ... just leave a comment or go to my facebook page and LIKE the image when you find it. Otherwise you lose ... and if you lose in the zombie world, you DIE!

Day 3 of my zombie a day give away has begun and the image above it todays prize. It came about after playing with pen nibs and inks, and going in a totally different direction than I normally would. It's about the size of a playing card and looks a lot better on your wall than it does on the screen.

If you want a chance at winning it, you just need to leave a comment about who you think should become a zombie. Famous or infamous - your choice. Tomorrow I will use a random number generator to decide on the winner.
