ZOMB-ART #6: Thomas Boatwright



"Zombie"
Artist: Thomas Boatwright

I follow Thomas Boatwright on deviantART and he's no stranger to zombies. In this sketch, Boatwright avoids the gory decomposed representation in favor of inspiration from the original Hinzman graveyard zombie in Night of the Living Dead.

Thomas Boatwright is the artist and co-creator of Cemetery Blues which is now available in trade paperback from Image comics. In June he has a three page story in the SLG Publishing anthology Fat Chunk Volume 2: Zombie called "One Nation Under Zombie." Also from SLG in July is the 22 page one-shot Zeke Deadwood Zombie Lawman. That's a lot of Zombies in '09, which is fine by him.
