Zombie Jamboree

I'm working on a short comic that will appear in an upcoming anthology of zombie comics. Chris Dahlen wrote the bleak story about a zombie preschool entitled "My Li'l Zombie." Not my typical project but comics are near and dear to my heart. I did a lot of comics as a kid.

Here I am working old school – brush and ink. Actually, brush and gouache. I find gouache doesn't gunk up the brush; it lays down smoothly and holds the brush tip.

The downsize is that gouache isn't waterproof but I'll be doing the color digitally so that's not an issue.

Good tip! I never thought about using gouache. Brilliant!

I can't wait to see some finishes.

Good to see you inking "old school." Although substituting gouache for ink is a nice twist with many advantages. And who doesn't love zombies? Ok, they're not some people's cup of tea. I happen to be a card-carrying zombie lover! IF you haven't seen Zombieland, I highly recommend it. Creepy AND funny.
