Zombie (Three Ways)

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.

The common interpretation is that the soft watches are rejecting the assumption that time is … More Time (Three Ways)
