Christian ‘woodsy’ Wood
Gardening for the Zombie Apocalypse

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was chosen and commissioned by Head of Zues Publishing, art director, Jessie Price to fully illustrate the Book.

How was the illustration used:
The idea behind the brief developed into a visual language that served partly as an instructional, illustrated survival guide. I developed Characters based on the written stereotypes featured in zombie movies and designed 8 double page spreads for each chapter's opener. Some additional drawings were also required to scatter throughout the book.

How did you make this work:
All illustrations were sketched by hand, sent to the art director for approval and redrawn in adobe illustrator with a limit of the chosen 3 colours.
