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.
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.
It's been a long day ... I think I'll take most of the weekend off and just promote the 1000 zombies project http://bit.ly/1000zombieportraits 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 www.storenvy.com/byronrempel and its currently empty ... until Monday.
Oh ... and here's a few doodles that will be getting mailed out to some uber fans.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
