2 — Apocalypse

Pro Tip: See this shot on my flickr here and follow me on twitter or facebook to keep up with this project.

Seven Days of Self Day 02 — Apocalypse: Since the epidemic things have got a little interesting around here… ahhh well at least I’ve found something I’m good at. I’m now heading for the city, ground zero, I want a god damn twinkie…

This shot took a bit of editing, it’s about 5 photos blended together so I could make it look like a hoard of zombies instead of just a couple. Keep your suggestions coming in for themes for the rest of the week!

I did some concept art for this one on Paper before heading out to shoot, it really helped me get straight in my head what needed doing.

My friend Daniel was one of my zombies today and he’s also a pretty awesome illustrator so he did a little comic about the blood I made them get covered in while I was editing! Awesome!
