Bizmar


This is a pinup I did for Young American Comics. It's for the "Big ol' Book of Bizmar" . Bizmar stands for bunny, insect, zombie, monkey, alien, robot. Now some have brought to my attention something I already knew regarding this picture. A worm is NOT an insect. Yes I know a worm is not technically an insect but I had to step up and use my artist lisence on this one. I went through a lot of different types of bugs in different parts of the picture at one time just flies buzzing around the zombies hand. None of it worked as well as this. I wanted a full on character and it was hard to see any kind of detail in any other bug . The worm has so few details in its self there was room to add a tie and hat and still make it read correctly.

Technically monkeys and bunnies and worms dont wear ties or hats. I will post some of the alternate bugs I got up to the final stage.

I guess I better get on those monkeys and bunnies and worms of mine about their tie-wearing habits. They will be shamed. SHAMED THEY WILL BE!!!!

I love how the dirt is glowing. Like the zombie is emmitting his own light source. Hey... that could totally be a new kids toy. "Glow Zombies" Sort of like "GlowWorms" ... only with the living dead.
