This week's Pop Culture League assignment, in time for October and Halloween, is: Here There Be Monsters
If you don't know it already by reading my blog, I am a big fan of The Walking Dead. I watch the show, collect the figures, and read the comic books.
For those who don't read the comic books, after every 5-6 issues, a compiled trade paperback is released containing those issues. It kind of looks like this:
Volume 1 - Days Gone Bye
What's cool about these trade paperbacks is the zombies at the bottom of each paperback connect to make one continuous horde.
So I had this idea, that I wanted to paint each cover (minus the top part of the photo) and just paint a canvas with each set of zombies and then make all those paintings connect.
So here is the process for how I made Volume 1 and 2. I am using 11x14 canvases.
Continuing on to Volume 3 and 4.
And here they are side by side.
Since the Trade Paperbacks are up to Volume 26, I started Volume 11-20 with an assembly line. Need to finish these up and get the rest done as well.
