Having spent such little time at my art table this past month, I decided to participate in the challenge of using the materials from my December Art Snacks subscription box to create something. Between working in a preschool and doing festive stuff with my own kids, I have been up to my eyeballs in cutesy, whimsical, adorable winter arts and crafts. I, therefore, decided that I needed an antidote and looked to one of my default art subjects for inspiration: zombies.
The box included a pad of Grumbacher mixed media paper and its narrow format gave me the idea of drawing a zombie squeezing through a narrow shape. I had not used a Krink paint marker before so I watered its acrylic down and used it to fill in the entire illustration. The Bruynzeel coloured pencils added more shading and detail to the zombie and then I used the green Pentel Slicci gel pen to create a frame around the drawing. The box also included a Caran d’Ache gold marker but I will use that in other future projects. It just didn’t strike me as right for a zombie. I have missed drawing zombies. I need to draw more of them.
