Pardon my Zombies

zombie art collage
I know that lots of folks are "sick to death" of zombies. If you are one of those folks ... Please Pardon my Zombies.

I have been enjoying the Walking Dead series on AMC. Now that Season 2 has wrapped up, it will be awhile before the zombies are back for Season 3. So, in the meantime ... a little zombie tribute.

I felt the urge to make one of my messy, paint splattered collages last night. Sometimes it just feels good to slap a bunch of stuff on the page and clear my head.

This collage is in my 8-1/2" x 11" hardcover sketchbook and was made from clippings, art, comics, and TV listings from local papers; acrylic paint, stamping, and Indian ink penwork.

While I did draw the lower zombie, I only "zombie-fied" the upper zombie - it was originally a cartoon face to which I added the white out eyes, the mouth, teeth and big juicy brain.  (My first brain, BTW.)

Mess : Disaster Area

Another page from Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes.

This is a disaster area. Fill every square inch of this page with stuff.

Filled with bits (of packaging, etc ...) that were destined for the trash.
The anthropomorphic grapes make me giggle every time.
