Mini Books and Standing Zombie Cats

While making the envelopes and foam core protective books yesterday, I saw a lot of the mini books sitting in storage. I took them and filled them in the bookcase that I made a few months ago ... the #infected will probably remember when this was made. Anyways ... I put as many books as I could fit in the bookcase and put the little mini framed picture on top. I thought it looked good and was ready to take a picture when I saw the little #zombiecat sitting by my paint brushes. I included the kitteh to complete the picture.

Seeing it all together like this has sparked a massive amount of ideas and I'm hoping to unleash at least one of them to the public on Monday. I'm testing the waters on patreon first.

What do you think of the bookcase? It needs a little plant to go with the little picture I think.

Little Book o' Zombie Cats


A few days ago I took a piece of paper and folded it in to a little book, just like +Lisa Cohen did for her books. I thought it was really cool how you can make a book out of just one sheet of paper. She found a tutorial here, and that's the same one I used.

After it was folded up I started to draw and sketch on it and after a few days I had a whole book made. The insides look like this:


I have put the high res file on my patreon page for my patrons to download and print out to make their own little book of zombies. You can find that here ... and while you're there maybe you can also become a patron and show your support for the zombie cats. Patrons also get dibs on owning the original book ... if you want a copy of the book already folded and signed by me, along with an original zombie cat sketch on black foam board, click here.
I'm offering these up for just 24 hours.

Here's an example of the free sketch:

After 24 hours im going to modify this post to remove the offer ... #justsaying

Rising from the grave ... again


Bringing back the #zombie #cats blog in a good way and starting with Bobo the #zombiecat that was ordered by an awesome zombie cat fanatic from the states. When I started this zombie cat I had the thought of making an animated gif out of it, which is what I did. Then I took it one step further and created a step by step patreon post explaining how I create my cats.

Why not pledge as little as a buck a month while you're at it. Get exclusive look behind the scenes, how my artwork is made along with videos and first pick of new work. Support an indie artist!

More cats coming tomorrow!

BatCat




I am fully aware that this is not a zombie cat, but it could become one, or possibly be fighting the hordes of zombie cats. This is BatCat ... and I made a book for him.

The front cover looks like this:
 Like most of my work, this cover is dirty, messy and splattered. Even though Batman would be a sleek and polished kind of cover, this is a cat we're talking about. So that being said, I thought it would be best to make it look like a cat had its way with the artwork.

The insides:

The inside is a standard Byron Book interior. Original artwork in a protective sleeve on the right, interesting story on the left. This is a bit of a quote from The Dark Knight, mashed up for teh kitteh

The outsides:

I'm really beginning to like the zombie cats sigil that I have created. I also really like how my own name fits in there as well. I just need to add some text to the spine and the whole book is done.

Stompy!


Meet Stompy, a cute little kitten with a slightly jacked up eye, It was adopted by a cool guy named Ben and his family. They don't know exactly why Stompy has a permament squint, and they love him anyway. I took that squint and just closed it right up with a bit of thread. It just seemed like the right thing to do.

When I was done, I started to make it in to a book, to keep the painting safe while it travels through the mail, and because I think it's pretty damn cool too.
Here's the cover:

It's a simple cover. Ben said that Stompy torments their other cat Jeffrey ... so I made a poem (of sorts) about that on the inside.

In case you can't read it, the poem goes:

Stompy looks very cute
But believe me, it's a lie.
Get to close or scratch his head
You will surely die!

Stompy kills everything
Even other cats.
Ever since he & Jeffrey
Had a little spat.

Now Stompy is on the hunt
Jeffrey is in hiding.
He knows if he is ever found
There will be no surviving.

It's cheesy ... but it's what I do. :P

And lastely ... the back of the book.

Beck


This is Beck, an zombie cat created as a gift for a favorite aunt as a birthday gift.
Not may aunt though, I don't know the lady, I just know her cat.
Well ... knew her cat. It's gone now, back to whence it came, spreading the infection along the way.
