Today I have three pieces related to the theme of Zombie.
George Pfau started Zombiescapes a few years ago. It’s a collection of abstract paintings of scenes from famous zombie films or television programs. It’s kind of like Monet doing George Romero’s storyboards. Here’s an example, with the actual move scene for comparison.
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
This one is my zombie creation.
The mindless corpse shuffled along
A gasping guttural growl its only song
Clothing bloodstained, tattered, and worn
Rotting pus filled flesh is torn
Eyes a glassy milk white
Exposed jaw open, ready to bite
Dragging one hobbled leg behind
Fresh brains are what it needs to find
Finally here is Zombie by the Cranberries. This is a different take on the zombie theme. It was inspired by the IRA bombing in Warrington, Cheshire in 1993, where two innocent children were killed.
