There seems to be a bit of a undead thing going on recently. From the dawn of time to the dawn of the dead, everyone suddenly loves zombies. There are zombies for every persuasion –- flesh eating zombies, radioactive zombies, ninja zombies, apocalyptic zombies, politicians, vengeful zombies, smelly liberal hippy zombies... (for a full and hilarious list of zombie types head to uncyclopedia.com
). Hell, you can now even read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains will be in want of more brains.” (FYI, the same author has now also written Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters
It only makes sense that this trend would eventually follow on in art form. Christopher Williams, a Vancouver based illustrator and writer, has combined two of his favourite things – the undead and portraiture – in a highly addictive way. An avid reader and writer of graphic novels, it only made sense for him to start flaunting his wares to the living. His recent experiments with mashing this love up with both Japanese culture and '50s Americana can be seen in the thumbnails above. When not drinking single malt whiskey while watching violent movies, he preserves the world in ink form, one undead babe at a time.
