Zombie

I had a dream once, a while ago now, where it was a post zombie apocalypse world. I was in a job interview, and the lady doing the interview asked if I had anything else to add. I felt I should confess, and I admitted, “well, I have shot a few people in the head.” She replied “Well, I don’t know very many people who haven’t.”

We finished season 3 of iZombie a few days ago but the theme song is still running through my head. Such a fun show. I didn’t know what to expect and there are so many zombie related shows out there and many of my zombie related dreams are not entertaining, but Rocky had a coworker tell him about this one so we gave it a try. Kind of campy, definitely comic book, and I have a weakness for things comic book.

The whole song is pretty cool.

The show utilizes music well, and I like much of the music they use throughout the series. I can’t remember if they have used  The Cramps “Zombie Dance”  yet. My favourite zombie related song.

EDIT: I found out later after I posted this blog entry, that George A. Romero has passed away. As father of the zombie movie this post seems kind of a tribute to him. Funny that my favourite movie of his is Knight Riders, a tale of Knights of King Arthur, but with motorbikes. It stars Ed Harris and has no zombies. R.I.P Mr. Romero.

I think I will be the sun today.

Today I woke up to the song “Lovers on the Sun” David Guetta, featuring Sam Martin, so I figured I would feature some images showcasing the sun.

These were the first images I was thinking of when I started my search:

which lead to these images:

which brought up an image inspired by a dream, from which I wrote this short poem:
I think I’ll be the sun today, in spite of what my mother will say.
A ray of light will be my smile,
I’ll wear a crown of gold
and my dress will be the sky.

which inspired this quick drawing:

i-think-i-will-be-the-sun

which developed into a linocut print:

i-think-i-will-be-the-sun-today

which I coloured digitally today:

i-think-i-will-be-the-sun-today-v3

So more than just a song inspired by an earworm today. You’ve gotten some insight into the creative process!

I don’t always go on such journey’s to get to where I go, but often it can work this way. Inspiration comes from so many places, in so many ways. If you are so inclined I would love to see some of your own creative methods.

Born of Frustration

Born of Frustration by James is today’s ear worm. I think I was dreaming about being in a music performance class and this was the song I was going to perform but they never got to me. Teachers pet was Iggy Pop who freaked out and was all no no no when it was suggested he could be gotten a gig.
