Zombie Valentine's Linocut


Now available to buy as Tshirts from WeLoveFine.com


Cruising my local Clinton Cards in the weeks before Valentine's Day I noticed a cavernous gap in the market. There are all sorts of slushy teddy bear and bunny rabbit cards available but I couldn't find any that feature reanimated corpses or internal organs being eaten.
As I was sure that there must be a huge market for this kind of card I immediately set about rectifying the situation through the medium of linocut.
Pictures of the process (I'd forgotten how laborious linocutting is not to mention how high the risk of hand gouging is) along with the three finished hand coloured prints can be seen below.
