Every now and then ideas pop into my head and I just have to put the
idea down onto paper. Zombie Astronaut was something I came up with
about a month or so ago and it just so happened that it was perfectly
timed for Halloween! Zombie films, zombie television show, zombie games
and well basically anything to do with those crazy undead creatures
instantly captures my attention. Even some of my earlier sketches and a
couple of my illustrative pieces on this site feature a few zombie
The idea behind the poster was to replicate something similar to the photos that the real astronauts have taken of themselves.
With the title of the piece I was inspired by the look of The Warriors
font with it’s rough spray paint style and The 1985 Twilight Zone title
I wanted to create the title rather than use a font so I decided it was
best to try and sketch my version out by hand and once again scan it
in. I still haven’t mastered writing using a stylus so this was an
easier option for the time being. I refuse to give up the sketching!
