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.
