Last night was the Fremont Zombie Walk here in Seattle. They were attempting to break the world record for the most zombies gathered in one area and according to early later reports I think they achieved this. So like a busker I cobbled together this idea at the last minute thinking that this might be a great opportunity to A) Promote my website and book, THINGS UNDONE B) Draw from life (or from death whichever you prefer) and get paid a little C) Draw zombies so that if I messed up, nobody would know and D) Get out into the public and mix it up a little. I mean, I figured why not try it at least once?

So how did it go?

I worked my ass off!
It was a non-stop flow of people from 6:30-7 until 9:30. I never looked beyond the clients I was drawing and so I really couldn’t tell what the heck was going on. It was a blur. I so wanted to chill afterwords but was too damn tired so I left the masses to feed on themselves.

Ryan Reiter and the people that volunteered were real pros. They were organized, friendly and really had their act together. To be honest though I stood out like a sore thumb. I think I was the only person there who wasn’t covered in blood or viscera.

Anyways, thanks to those who stopped by.

Shane White spent much of his childhood in the Seaway Valley of Northern New York. He recounted much of this in his 2005 graphic novel, North Country. His passion since junior high school has always been comics and sequential art. With the constantly changing tide of the industry he decided to pursue other areas of art to gain a broader spectrum in which to facilitate his comic work. He's been an illustrator, graphic designer, concept artist and storyboard artist, for the film, video game and publishing industry since early 1990. Not until recently has he put all of this experience to use. Last year he co-created a hard science fiction series for Image Comics called, The Overman. He's worked on short stories in books such as Fear Agent, Hawaiian Dick, and Comic Book Tattoo. Shane White lives with his wife Jessica in the sometimes gray Shangri-La of the Northwest where he enjoys art, film and fine food.
