A day at Wizard World Comic Con Raleigh

blog, Zombie Art, Zombie Things to do By March 18, 2015 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

We were a little ways south in Savannah, Georgia when we heard about the Wizard World Comic Con in Raleigh. Neither of us had been to one, despite living in Portland, Oregon for years, and on the road ,we always manage to miss them or be on the opposite side of the country. I’d been to an Anime Con before, with the featured band’s entourage, and I hoped for something a little bigger, better, and less filled with teens. I was not disappointed.

The Walking Dead In My Pocket? Yes Please!

Zombie Art By August 7, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

The Walking Dead Debit CardI don’t have any The Walking Dead tees for some reason and sometimes I just don’t want to have a conversation with a stranger based on the fact that they saw my t-shirt anyway. However, I found a more discrete way to show my fandom in a way that will earn me points with my local haunts and the conversation will last only as long as I’m in line paying for a beer, comic book, movie ticket or whatever else I might be paying for – the Card.com The Walking Dead Debit Card!

My first experience using the card involved a pitcher of beer at a local bar. We had been wanting to make friends with the bar tender, (always a good plan) when I came in with my new Walking Dead card. The creepy little thing blew her mind. She was immediately excited and talked about the show with us for a short time, til the next customer came along and we were then free to find a table and drink our beer. The next time we came in she made my rum and coke extra strong and chatted us up some more about the show and card. There’s not many things I have interest in that will ever end up discretely in a stranger’s hand, unless I want to start randomly handing people comic books or blu-rays. A custom card is a pretty great way to express yourself to people without looking too desperate for like minded people.

Card.com has several Walking Dead designs as well as card for any other interest at all, including Star Trek! My other nerdy passion… Definitely check out what they have to offer, you can transfer money to it any time and it’s totally worth it!

Apocalypse Dunny Series Just Out and Already Extinct!

Zombie Art By November 8, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

There are many interpretations of “The Apocalypse” . You know my preferred scenario, but the artists collaborating for Kidrobot’s newest Dunny gang, the Apocalypse Dunny Series, are representing every known scenario in a cute little dunny form.

If you don’t know much about Dunny‘s*, they’re a collectible plastic figurine, designed by a myriad of artists for Kidrobot. Street artists, illustrators and fine artists alike get in on making this single plastic bunny shaped form, their own. I collect them (when I can get them) and so do millions of others. *of course, “dunny” means toilet in Australia, but that is not the case here.

The Apocalypse Dunny Series has come out just in time for everyone’s little freak-out session, due to happen this December.

Perfect timing!

Sold out at my (usually) preferred retailer, but find them, overpriced and price gouged, on Ebay by vultures who wait for release day, then buy them all up and sell them at 3-4 times their retail price. Go Capitalism!

Apocalypse Dunny - zombie!

Apocalypse Dunny - Mayan

Apocalypse Dunny Aliens

Apocalypse Dunny Monsters

Apocalypse Dunny Warrior and Fearful

Apocalypse Dunny Rapture

I used to collect Dunny’s a few years ago and still have about 50, but I found this pretty disturbing – The moment they came out on sale today from an approved distributor, they were sold out before I could click on the email link and already they are on sale on Ebay for up to 4 times what they cost in the blind box, for a blind box of 16, over 222$ – this is not only unfair to the public and everyday collector but its unethical. I know that’s life and shit but really? Maybe if the retail stores or Kidrobot wouldn’t make it into a big “release day” things and work people up so much, Dunny collecting would not have become such a black market joke.

Zombie Portraits by Rob Sacchetto: Pets, Couples, You! ALL UNDEAD!

Zombie Art By October 18, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Zombie Portraits by Rob Sacchetto are a slice and hack above much of his competition. His work speaks for itself, or rather moans for itself and each commissioned piece is a frameable, inheritable work of art in a great price range. He spends an average of 6 hours on each piece, taking time to give them all the reality of zombie life, without having to experience it yourself. Even your pets can get in on the horror with a immortalized portrait.

Since I’m excited about the new Hitchcock movies, I had to feature this one first.

Zombie Freakfest’s Zombie Tales Etsy Store

Zombie Art By August 30, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

The new Zombie Freakfest Zombie Tales Etsy store is a strange concept I came up with but one I think I’ll enjoy on many levels. Each photo in the shop will come with a portion of a much larger tale. It’s a diary of sorts of one girl’s survival in a post zombie world. She’s escaped death, only barely, and there’s many questions about how she’s made it so far. As I add photos to the store, the tale will go deeper, and physically, the character will go father south. Where it will go exactly, even I don’t know for sure as each photo will inspire me to write the next journal entry to match the tale told by each photo.

The photos are my own travel and art photos taken over the last few years all over the U.S., Mexico and Argentina, and will include such categories as “Nightmares”, “Hideouts”, “Zurvivors” (people she meets and their story), but the whole story can be started from the first photo on the homepage down. When I sell a photo, I will immediately re-list it to keep the story complete.

Eventually, if everything goes well, I will self publish the tale with photos and sell it on the site.

Each photo in the shop is available as an 8×10 print and larger sizes on request. I will include a typewritten piece of scrap paper for you to insert in a frame behind the photo. I am using a typewriter and scrap paper because that is what the character is using on the road. She hand developed the photos whenever she can find a stream or running water and dark night.

Check it out and stay tuned for more photo stories coming soon!

Zombie Art: Peeps in Film – The Walking Dead

Zombie Art, Zombie lols By April 7, 2012 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Not many things creepier than something cute and deadly – and seeing a poor little peep torn limb from limb is a tragedy in itself but these dioramas turn a tragedy into a “peepomatic masterpiece”.

The gruesome AMC show The Walking Dead makes a great diorama with the help of raspberry jelly and red licorice. This scene by Loren Sciurba of Alexandria shows Shane escaping a hoard by shooting Otis and leaving him to distract the zombies.

Zombie Art: The Paintings of Bill Killen

Zombie Art By March 23, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

I found these phenomenal paintings while perusing through the mass that is Etsy, and was immediately blown away. I’ve never seen a serious and classically trained painter take on Zombies, and no one does more justice to the hunger in their eyes and sores on their flesh than Bill Killen.
Being mostly influenced by classical renaissance and 17th century Flemish painters, he never thought to do Zombies until he got a request from a friend, after that, the virus spread and Bill Killen was painting Zombies until he created a Horde.
His Etsy shop, The Zombie Horde, is full of prints and original paintings of the beautiful, terrifying, precious and nightmarish, all perfect for any Zombie lover’s house. The prices on prints and originals are all very very reasonable, and he even does special requests.

If you’ve ever wanted to see The Walking Dead Zombies just a little bit longer, get to know them, maybe tease them through a fence for a while and study their actions, the paintings of Bill Killen are for you.
