THE KEY TO A FULLFILLING ZOMBIE WALK






They had a Zombie Walk in buffalo today - the middle of the day- and i missed it. However I did catch some photos which were posted on Facebook and I found myself looking at each person's rendition of a zombie. Most were people in white tees with blood but some worked really well and it occurred to me the key to being a successful zombie is to make sure you have a unique enough character or occupation.

A 1970's jogger zombie could be cool or maybe even a womanly shaped 1920's wrestler zombie. How about a Terminex exterminator?! What makes all those film so creepy are are when the zombies are part of our every day life. Any zombie in a a uniform woud be perfect. A UPS guy would be fun and understated as well because the blood would probably look like chocolate syrup on the "what can brown do for you?" outfit.

BEEN ON A MANSON KICK LATELY...

I guess probably because of the fact that it's the 40th anniversary of the slayings that occurred in California. I was asked if I wanted to contribute to a local "Artists and Authors" fund raiser at the Carnegie Art Center this week in Buffalo, NY where they have artists create book marks to auction off.

I did this one.... It's good old Charlie with one of his quotes.

As I told the woman running the auction
"Everyone needs a Manson Bookmark"

I don't know what it is, but he's fun to draw. I think I will use him again as a subject for my upcoming January show.

I'm not sure if you can bid remotely on this but here is their info if you want to contact them directly

Please contact Mary Simpson at the Carnegie Art Center at 716-694-4400 x301 or msimpson@carnegieartcenter.org for more information.
