working on some zombies

When working hard feels like hardly working ... today I'm trying to get more #zombies completed for the 1000 zombies project. It doesn't look like the Dark Knight will be a survivor in the coming apocalypse.

My first Solo Show

Been a busy weekend of #zombie portrait drawing ... In between that I've been working on some new pieces, including several horror movie icons. I also finished off some old paintings that have been staring at me from the shadows. Now I have enough work to hold a Solo Horror Art Show ... online!

This Wednesday, May 28th, I will unleash the new works for the world to view and purchase. It's my first time trying something like this, so I'm quite excited and a little nervous too. Here's a sneak peek at a WIP

Another Dollar Doodle - Yvonne

Another Dollar doodle ... this time its +Yvonne R . 
Not sure if I should leave it as is or hack out her inner zombie.

thisGUY - dollar doodle

It's been another day of chaos and craziness ... which is typical for me. Found the time to do another dollar doodle ... do you know who this guy is? He's on G+ quite a lot and across the pond from me. Any guesses?
Pretty much a non zombie image ... might leave it like this or revisit it at a later date.

Hello Kitty - dollar doodle

I think I was a little to influenced by Simon Bisley when I tackled the Hello Kitty dollar doodle last night. I had just finished watching a few videos of him drawing and being interviewed before I began to draw ... so some of his awesomeness might have tried to leak out on to the paper.
I am a poor mans Bisley though, of that I have no doubt ... but all in all I still dig this image.

But I had to try another one ... toned down a little bit ...
Shout out to +Kyla Myers for the buck and choosing the topic.

Dragon - dollar doodle

Another dollar doodle request from Traci ... this time it was a dragon.
Perhaps not the words most awesome dragon, or zombie for that matter, 
but it was for a buck so cut me some slack :-p
At least I drew it on decent quality paper in case I decide to sell it at some point.
Traci gets dibs ...

zombie unicorn dollar doodle

Finished my dollar doodle of a zombie unicorn which was suggested and funded by Traci

feeling sketchy

Here's a couple pages out of my sketchbook ... its a cold wet grey day and the kids are home because Canada celebrates Victoria Day. I really don't know why we have this day off but I'll take it, though I wish it wasn't raining so the kids could get outside and work off their energy.
Starting to dig in to the zombie portraits from the kickstarter campaign, and I 'll be finishing off the rest of the dollar doodles today too. 
Coloring book coming soon ...

zombie coffee is coming

I've been talking to some coffee roasters and pretty soon they'll be unleashing a Zombie Apocalypse Wake the Dead espresso blend ... and it will feature some of my artwork on the labels. And the roasters just sent me some sample coffee to try ... they smell awesome!
They even made my own special blend :)

Bearman Cartoons is giving away money ...

Because what does a zombie need with money anyways? In reality he's giving his money away to charity. You can check out his website here, and if you're on google+ you should also circle him ... make him spend his money.
This is a zombified image I drew of his iconic avatar for part of my 1000 zombies horde. If I was more clever I would make a comic strip about him and his adventures in the zombie apocalypse ... it would probably have a horde of streaking zombies taking candy corn poops while mugging complete strangers.

If any of that made sense you already know +Bearman Cartoons  if not ... you really should be following his adventures.

Zombie Cat revisited

A while back I drew/painted a zombie cat image and it was fine ... but then it wasn't fine so I tweaked it today and here's the final result. Posted for sale here and don't forget to get your own pet zombified, join the 1000 zombies project.

zombie 231

Ryan usually wears glasses but they were knocked off when the horde of zombies pulled him down and started gnawing on his limbs and clawing up his face. Don't feel to bad for him, he doesn't need them anymore ... all he needs is braAaaainsz! 
Join the horde! http://bit.ly/1000zombieportraits

zombie 230

I'm not sure if I pulled this one off or not ... might have to revisit it. Drawing babies as zombies, or just babies in general, is tricky. To many lines and they change from babies in to little old wrinkled people. This is actually my 2nd attempt on +Bill Thruman 's daughter Makayla and I won't lie, I'm pondering a 3rd attempt.
But until then ... we have this little monster that has no teeth but a gummy bite that does more damage than you would think. She should be teething soon, so watch out.

Oh ... and go fund your own zombie before the kickstarter ends.
