Zombies. Roar!

      Zombies are everywhere these day.  Movies, TV, video games, comics, and books all have been swarmed by zombies and why not everyone loves zombies, and right when you think they are getting old and you've become sick of them someone comes up with a way to breath new life into them, and your hooked all over again. Hell one of my favorite "things" is the Song of Ice and Fire books and even it uses zombies as its main antagonist of the series in the form of the White Walkers.  
 (sorry just wanted to bring up Game of Thrones)

      Zombies are also just amazing to see, its always fun looking at zombie make-ups and illustrations. so why talk about zombies, well a while back a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to do a T-shirt design with a undead theme so I jumped at the chance.

Unused zombie design

         I really loved making this image and my friend liked it too but sadly the deal fell through due to a mutual misunderstanding, which is too bad cause I think this would look great on a shirt.



         Just for fun I just can't help but to post a small list of a few zombie films. they're pretty fun so if there is any on this list you haven't seen give them a try.  (this list is in no order)
  • Fido - 2006
  • Day of the dead - 1985
  • Shaun of the dead - 2004 (its a requirement to list this film)
  • The Return of the Living Dead - 1985
  • Dead Alive (aka Brain Damage) - 1992
  • Re-Animator - 1985
  • [REC] - 2007
  • Slither - 2006
  • The Evil Dead - 1981 ( of course that also counts for the sequel and army of darkness)
  • Tokyo Zombie - 1999
  • ZombieLand - 2009

Hello old friends.


     Man, it sure has been a long time since I posted, too long really.  But I’ve  been doodling in my little sketch book and tableting (?) on my little Wacom the whole time and can't wait to show works I’ve done and will do in the future.
     So what happened, where have I been? Sad truth is that things got hard and I had to focus more on getting a normal job, with more security then freelance was giving me at the time. But now I’ve gotten nice job and built up some savings, got an amazing part time job as an ART INSTRUCTOR (don't worry I'll be talking all about it on my next entry, which will not take a year to post, promise) and am ready to jump head first back into the art world.

     I’ve got a long list of things I’ve got to do and can't wait to go through them all, but I just wanted to really get back into the routine blogging of where I am and where I'm going. I find it’s a really big motivator for myself. It helps keep me, or any artist, on a schedule like trying to meet a deadline at the same time giving me an avenue to show my work. Most importantly I think it helps me look at myself to better understand who I am as an artist and challenge me to do more and be better.

   To get back into things I redesigned my old resume to send to any in house jobs or any freelance job that requires resumes, which are not that many but it’s always good to have.

I forgot how to spell my name, but lucky for me my little buddy filled it in for me.

      There it is see how cute it is up there! That's not all, I'm planning on creating all new business cards and post cards as leave behinds and mailers. I am making new pieces for my portfolio, looking into ways to get myself out in the public eye more like promotional sites and conventions to attend, and I'm even working on one or two super-secret projects I hope to self-produce. I'm not really sure where I'm going to go I am just planning to throw as many hooks out there and see what fish will bite, well wish me luck and hope you look forward to keeping up with my blog in the future as much as I will writing it!

Fun game if you see any spelling or grammar mistakes point them out to me. Whoever points out the most wins.
