zombie 192 -Carls horde part 5

Using a sword to kill zombies is harder than you think.

zombie 191 - Carls horde part 4

This is the first time I had a bird on someone ... I like it. Lucky for the zombie it hasn't grabbed his eye yet.

zombie 190 - Carls horde part 3

This is the third zombie of Carls horde ... I don't really remember what happened to him. It was either bird shot or a chemical spray.

zombie 189 - Carls horde part 2

This is another one of Carl's friends that he wanted zombified. 
I got a little creative with the blow torch.

zombie 188 - Carls horde part 1

This is the first of five people that a guy named Carl wanted to see zombified.

zombie 187 - Paul

the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out the worms play pinochle on your snout They eat your eyes, they eat your noes they eat the jelly between your toes

zombie 186

This is the boyfriend of zombie 185.
Or was it husband?
Maybe just friend.
It really doesn't matter since they're both undead rotting sacks of flesh that are doomed to wander the earth forever.

He looks happy though right?

zombie 182 - Gustavo

Often times when people contact me to get painted as a zombie, they use their profile picture or something similar, which is fine and results in a perfectly good zombie painting.
But every once in a while they take the time to make a face or strike a pose ... then the painting gets more dynamic.

zombies 180 and 181

These zombies from down under were funded by +Paul Snedden 
Together in life, forever in undeath ... eating human flesh, or each other when times are lean.

That almost sounds like a zombie folk song ... que the banjo!

zombie 179 - ?

The 179th zombie of this project. Quite a clean zombie, very minimal line use. Everything about this one is so different than what I am creating now that I have to stop and wonder why I was drawing this way ... evolution of art.

zombie 178 - Scott

This is Scott, and he's wearing a princess Leia outfit because of a dare. AND he's a zombie.
There has to be a joke in there somewhere.

zombie 177 - Melissa's other half

I no longer recall if this was Melissa's second half, better half, or just lunch.
Someone has been nibbling though.

zombie 175 - Peta

Simple lines and bright colors make zombie 175 a little different from the rest. And those eyes ... they see everything.

zombie 165 - James

When I painted up James I tried to take in to account that he was a musician ... and carved some musical notes in to his face. It sort of worked.

zombie 164 - this KID!

Is this your child?
I have hunted through my archives to find the name of this kid ... but it is lost and forgotten.

zombie 163 - Amy

Still wearing her wedding dress, this bride of the undead wanders the apocalypse looking for her missing groom.

zombie 159 - Heather

Like something out of Hellraiser, Heather comes at your with her chattering teeth, ready to gnaw the flesh for your bones.

zombie 158 -Shawn

Shawn lost his friends when the apocalypse began. It didn't help that he ate a few of them. 

zombie 155 - Alireza

Stuck on a train with nowhere to go is probably the worst to be during the zombie apocalypse. Especially if there are zombies on it. Snakes on planes? How about zombies on trains!

zombie 153 and 154

Meet Artie and Stella. Together forever in life and undeath.
Although Artie's days are numbered if she keeps chewing his face.

zombie 150 - Ralph

Ralph was the kind of guy that always watched his back. To bad he didn't watch what was in front of him as well.

This is the 150th zombie of the project and also the end of a little mental slump. More details are starting to be picked out, and some of the fun was returning again.

btw - I have a shirt/fund raiser happening ... check out teespring to get a ZOMBIENATION ARMY shirt and help me keep doing what I do. Or ... join the zombie horde itself and get yourself made as a zombie.

zombie 149 - Erin

Zombies are only really happy when they're nomming on your brains.

My art style has come a long way over the years. This painting was created about 3 years ago. If my memory is correct, it was made during a time when I wasn't entirely happy with any of the artwork I was producing. It was a darker time for me emotionally and I do not think I put as much in to the portraits as I used to ... or as I would later on.

Still ... there is something to be said about the chaotic simplicity of the lines.
Seeing this image and being able to compare it to the first zombie portrait as well as my most recent one, makes me glad I began this project. Even though its been a project that seems to stutter and stall often.

zombie 148

This is the other daughter of Chad ... since most parents know that if you do something cool like get a zombie portrait for one kid, you might as well do it for both, otherwise there's whining, complaining, etc.

zombie 147

The 147th zombie of the 1000 zombies project is the first daughter of a guy named Chad.

zombie 146

There should be a story with this zombie but I can't think of one right now. And my fingers are cold so I need to stop typing ... if you have a good story for this zombie, please post it in the comments and if I like it I might draw you as a zombie too.

No promises :P
