Zombie Apocalypse Characters & WEDF 5-9 book

I recently extended my range of zombie characters on the lead up to Halloween 2013. Adding zombified scientist, trucker, hoody, beef cake, inmate, nurse in scrubs, biker and a lone survivor.

Zombie appreciation isn't really seasonally specific these days, especially now with zombie/infected themes dominating all corners of the media, all year round. With video game franchises such as Dead Rising, The Walking Dead graphic novel, tv show and spin off games, blockbuster movie releases like World War Z and even exhilarating survival street games like 2.8 Hours Later or organised zombie street parades. There are even dedicated blogs such as The Zombie Research Society, discussing zombie science, survival and culture. The zombie enthusiasts needs are thoroughly tendered to.

We seem to be insatiably fascinated by the topic, and I share that fascination and morbid curiosity, as it's a very rich source of inspiration and great platform for creativity. At times I think the Squatties could exist entirely on zombified people alone, and it's very tempting to keep going with them, but for now the new 8 characters in this gruesome wave will have to do. Fear not though, there is unfinished business here, so expect more in 2014.

Cinema4d render of the Zombie Apocalypse scene.

With such a bumper group of characters I had enough content to create the second digital diorama showcase scene. The image centres on the fight of the lone survivalist, fleeing and hacking at the zombified horde, lurk in the middle of a desolated and post apocalyptic night time street, looking for prey.

My page in the West of England Design forum 5-9 book.

I was so pleased with the resulting image that I submitted it to The West Of England Design Forum's 5-9 book; a showcase of art and design created outside of the paid 9-5 job. This work fits snugly into that category as it is entirely self motivated, made for passion and not profit. I'm very delighted to have made the cut to be chosen as one of the 50 creatives. The limited edition book launched on the 5th of December 2013 at The Big Chill Bar in Bristol.

The 8 Zombie paper toys

All new characters are available from the paper toy page of the website. Download and make them if you're feeling crafty, and want to add some gruesome to your flat surfaces. As a special bonus, I have also made the scene available to use as a high definition desktop wallpaper.
