This was a request from ladyspock7 who frequently reblogs my stuff on tumblr. She wanted an owl. She did not specify in what state. I hope this works. 😉
It had a tombstone in the image, so I had to figure out something to write on it. I had to give her a name. So, I called her Carrie Ann Black. Carrie Ann. Carrion. Get it? I always thought Carrie Ann would be a great name for a ghoul. And Black because Death was named Black in Meet Joe Black.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
CARRIE ANN BLACK

She was so beloved, she was even born on Valentine’s Day. And her death was such a horror, it had to happen on Halloween.
I’m not sure if she’s a zombie or a vampire. Some sort of undead, surely. She looks rather un-rotted for a zombie, but maybe she was just well-embalmed. I dunno.
I wonder if Mr. Black will be pleased to have her back?
Katie thinks maybe her husband is Death, like in the movie, so he wouldn’t mind her being dead. She’s very optimistic.
So… I was trying zombies again. This time I was going for cute. Not sure if zombies can actually be cute. But the girl does look happy, at least.
This one’s a lot ickier than I usually draw. But it’s a zombie. They’re inherently pretty icky. I think I’ll have to do something cute for tomorrow to wash the zombie stink off my stylus.
This was an exercise to practice drawing different expressions on the same character using Adobe Illustrator. I didn’t bother with shading it, since it was just practice.
I initially drew these in a completely different order, but arranging them this way seemed to fit them into a narrative. The second from the last was originally supposed to be a yawn. I’m not really sure why I turned him into a zombie. It just sort of happened.
