DISCLAIMER: This is my blog. I am a person who fancies herself
pretty funny. Snarky. And even a flat out smart ass. What I create is
never intended to offend, but ultimately I have no control over
how you choose to interpret my art. Proceed with caution,
and with your big girl/boy panties on.
There, I said it. Or I wrote it. Whatever. It's out.
Yesterday was Easter, and in honor of the first zombie ever,
I have created a small tribute in his likeness.
I was inspired to create said homage by the new challenge at
Haunted Design House - Going Green With Envy.
Yup. I went there.
It is no big secret that I don't lend much credence to organized religion.
I wasn't indoctrinated into a religion as child, and have never been able
to wrap my head around giving myself over to a higher power.
I do, however, consider myself somewhat spiritual.
And that works for me.
Anyhoo, I found this guy at my local thrift store, and
after my giggles of insane inspiration subsided, I got to work
making him into the true zombie he was always meant to be.
After several coats of various acrylic paints and washes,
he was complete. And far more interesting than the way
that I originally found him.
While straightening, and purging my workspace I happened
upon this tiny dancer. Also a thrift store find.
After the official "Creepy Zombie Concoction" has been applied,
she is the star of the zombie ballerina recital.
Thanks to this challenge theme, I have been inspired to start painting the
numerous statues and figurines I have been collecting. I have some cows,
a trio of babies, and even a Buddha that are all dying to be zombified and given
a new life. Most of which will end up in my Etsy shop by the end of the month.
Remember to stop by the HDH blog to check out all of the incredible art that
my fellow Minions have created for this inspiring challenge.
