I’m a fan of the survival horror genre, and zombies are a particular love of mine. I find that there’s a strange yet attractive quality in the living dead, especially the mindless, shambling, and decaying corpses, driven only by their most basic of impulses, and the need to feed upon human flesh.

I had decided that I would have a table in the artists alley at the 2007 Brisbane Supanova Convention, and a friend of mine had told me that I should draw a poster for the occasion. A good idea, but it was my first time as an exhibitor, so at the last minute I decided that a Romero style zombie poster would be impressive. The result was this digital painting, which took me about six hours to finish, and I only used my mouse.
