Sure, vampires are the classic undead archetype. They’re rich in history and cemented in pop-culture, celebrated and parodied endlessly over the years. I won’t argue, they’ve got great PR backing them.
But I ask you, consider the zombie. They’re not so articulate or glamorous, but they’ve got numbers on their side. They don’t discriminate either. Regardless of age, race, or religion, they take all kinds. If you ask me, the vampires have dominated the spotlight for too long. With their growing presence in popular media, it’s time to give zombies some love, too. I’ve gathered together a few of my favorite pieces of contemporary zombie art and asked the creators to share a little bit of their inspirations. Feel free to post your own or link up your favorite zombie arts!
