zombie 229

The most recent zombie of the 1000 zombies project is this guy ... we all know him, and if you don't then gods help you.
Go fund your own zombie today ... help a starving artist out.


Some spare paper that got marked up with some random paint ... so I kept painting and pushing ... I feel like its a little blurry even though it isn't. Must be some sort of metaphorical thing happening.
Up for sale in my store.

Zombie 228

The 228th Zombie of the 1000 zombies art project is Hysky ... caught off guard while asleep in his PJs the zombie attack was swift and brutal. The dude lost an arm but managed to find his hat. Thank goodness for small victories ... such as they are.
Yes he's standing by a colorful brick wall ... kind of trippy for a zombie but it really suited the image I think.

In case you didn't know I'm running a kickstarter campaign right now to help boost my zombie production for the project. Check it out if you haven't yet.

Over the weekend I relieved some stress and created this alienesque zombie. I'm unsure if he's killing someone or perhaps relieving himself. You can decide.

Offering him up for sale for the next week (click here) .. and then I rework him.

ruined fish

A while back I painted up some fish for fun ... it was an experiment in minimalism and the abstract.
I liked the image ... for a while.
When I grew tired of it I took my 2 pens and ravaged it over and over again ... same image, totally different feeling in each one.

I'm posting it up for sale until the end of the week ... at which point I will ravage it again.

twitter zombies

A few days back I had a small contest on twitter to reTWEET one of my tweets ... the above 2 zombies was the avatar of the winning Twitter user. Did you know I use twitter? You can find me here.
I'm on Facebook too ... just because ... 

I'm about halfway finished my kickstarter campaign and its slowed down a little ... in the next day or two I'll have another contest ... but this one is a little different. Stay tuned.

a long day

It's been a long day ... I think I'll take most of the weekend off and just promote the 1000 zombies project AND get my shop ready for Monday. If you've been wanting some unique items for your home, zombie or otherwise ... Monday is the day I start listing.
My shop is and its currently empty ... until Monday.

Oh ... and here's a few doodles that will be getting mailed out to some uber fans.

the standing zombie

Lately I've been feeling the pressures of the everyday ... the pressures of being a grown up with grown up responsibilities ... and its a drag. It really started to get at my desire to create and I haven't done as much as I would have liked lately. So ... in a small burst of creativity I've managed to smash through the damn of frustration and I feel all the better for it ... and I think its pretty damn cool too.
I'm actually feeling the urge to get a few more of these done while I promote the 1000 zombies project.
If you want to own the first, one of a kind zombie stand up ... get it here.

2 little zombie kids

A while back +Greg Johns put up a few bucks to get his kids done. It was part of the pay what you want event I had during my kids spring break. He asked for a couple of images, this one of his kids as well as the Jerry Garcia zombie. Just finished off these 2 boys in an effort to clean my slate before launching my kickstarter tomorrow. If anyone has tips or suggestions on having a kickstarter event, please let me know ... I'm nervous about this but I have to get the project done.
There are also still 3 spots left on the preKickstarter zombie portrait offer ... get zombified for just $15.

Forgot to post this image from yesterdays drawing challenge ... we had about 5 minutes to draw some sort of creature or whatever invading ... it was pretty vague but +Sean Cowen wanted to leave it up to our interputation. So ... my creature is an amalgamation of things that make up Canada ... sort of. Tim Hortons donuts, poutine, bacon ... the idea only came in the last few minutes though so it's quite awful.

Drawing Challenge ... with Cliff Roth

So today I hung out with Cliff Roth and Lanc T Miller, as well as Sean Cowen, Mz Maau and Gwyneth Wilson. It was an art challenge day of sorts and Since Cliff, Lance and I are completely incapable of staying on task Mz Maau took charge and drawing began. It started with drawing a metaphor ... being nibbled by ducks or raining fish and bears. WTF right? Well ... it has begun.
After that is was food with attitude ... and mine was a rotten tomato ..
After that it Mz Maau made us dive in to our feelings ... something like that ... I can't remember but this was created and it's supposed to represent how my day has gone so far, and how my typical days are. Fuzzy, frantic and quite simply ... messy.

There was another challenge that had to do with what drives you to do art ... but I was distracted and my computer was acting up so I never really got that one done.
Here's a link to the youtube video of all the shenanigans.

This is my last one like this for a while ... I need to concentrate on the 1000 zombies project now. All future updates on here will either be more 1000 zombie portraits or some doodles.

Then again, I can change my mind and do another one when the mood strikes ... but I really want to get the 1000 zombies finished.

Going a little illustrative suddenly just to warm up ... should have been a bit more careful taking of the tape though. Tore up the side, but it works.


6"x12" watercolor and inks on 300lb watercolor paper ... the 2nd in a series that explores the zombies return to nature ... no ashes to ashes here, its all rot, decay and regrowth.

Spring is coming ... and so are the zombies

A long time ago I toyed with the idea of mixing decay and beauty together in an image ... but I never did. The idea has always stuck with me and now with the approaching spring the idea has once again struck me. What would grow on a zombie? For this image is a collection of small flowers and moss has sprouted upon this walkers head. 
Original available to purchase in my store:

Stretched Thin

I have a whole slew of things I want to say about being stretched thin ... but as I type them I quickly delete them ... it's a pity party and ain't nobody got time for that.

Beaker going Z

A while back I started drawing beaker ... it just happened. Today I finished him off and added him to my store. He looks a little crazier than normal, I think the virus has taken hold.
