Illustration Friday - Contagious


"Beware of the Zimebie! By far the most deadly of zombie archetypes, the miming undead are a silent threat to the living. They do not emit longing moans for 'brains,' instead simply pantomime their craving for a cranial gray-matter platter.

Be on the lookout for any shambling individuals, especially those wearing berets, striped shirts, black stretch pants or face paint. If you or any of your party were to run out of ammunition or weaponry, quick thinking will allow you to corral the zimebie in an invisible holding pen, or block his path with a barricade of invisible rubble.

May the Force be with you."


See that twist I threw in at the end there? I just introduced zimebies into the Star Wars Expanded Universe! Woo!

  1. I looked at a few of your posts and realized that my mouth was hanging open...in wonder and incredulousness. I closed my mouth. A few posts later, I realized it was hanging open again. There was also much chuckling, sighing and head shaking. Really, no one else's illustration blog has elicited so much reaction from me! You've got some very COMPLEX ideas here...that seem like they'd be near impossible to illustrate, yet you have pulled them off with amazing skill!...And I appreciate that you explain to us your thought process...Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - I'm glad to have found yours!
