Zombie #5: Mark Tedin

Mark Tedin is a fantasy/gaming artist who started painting for Magic: the Gathering back when Magic: the Gathering released their first set of cards. I honestly remember, in middle-school, being creeped out by cards like Goblin Hero and Abomination. I thought that the artist that produced this kind of stuff must have been possessed by Satan himself. Nowadays I think the same thing, but it's a good thing rather than a bad one. You have to see his work in person to see how amazingly vivid it is. The cards don't do him justice.
And then there's this zombie, made from pieces of other zombies. Thanks for that Mark. I know you didn't do it for me, but you kind of did.

Zombie #4: Rob Alexander

Rob Alexander is an awesome fantasy artist, easily my favorite for fantasy landscapes, and I was stoked that he agreed to do a zombie for me, considering I've never seen him tackle a zombie before. Now someone please buy me the original artwork for the card Overgrown Tomb (Wizards of the Coast's title), City of the Dead (Rob's title), so that my zombies will have somewhere to hang out.

Zombie #3: Nate Bellegarde

Nate Bellegarde is a comic-book artist with such books on his résumé as Hector Plasm: De Mortuis, Loaded Bible: Jesus Vs. Vampires and more recently, Invincible Presents: Atom Eve. Nate makes fictional characters on printed paper move. Really. For an example of what I'm talking about, pick up a copy of Hector Plasm. It's magnificent.
Check out his sketch blog as well. Sketch #79, holy shit.

Zombie #2: Robert Kirkman

Robert Kirkman is the creator/writer for The Walking Dead, the best comic book. Seriously, if you haven't read it, you might die in the next couple of hours, unless you go to the nearest comic shop and pick this book up. It will change your life (if you're as stupid about zombies as I am). He is also responsible for Battle Pope, Invincible and Marvel Zombies which are all great titles. Sometimes he sketches zombies.

Zombie #1: Kenn Minter

Kenn Minter of Near Mint Press doodled up this zombie for me back in April. I really like how Kenn adapted this zombie to his style. Kenn not only draws but writes as well. Check out Kenn's tongue-in-cheek super-hero comic The Experts and his autobiographical comic I'm Not From Here. This guy oozes wit, coated in charm.
Thanks Kenn!
