I had the pleasure of doing illustrations and layout of this fine book written by Emil Blichfeldt and published by Calibat.

Zombie book

I’ve been working on a project in-between other projects. It’s a Danish book about the world after a zombie apocalypse. It’s a mix of prose, illustrations and comic pages. It’s written by the talented writer Martin Schjönning. One of my inspirations regarding the mix of the 3 media is Lore by T. P. Louise and Ashley Wood. It’s a compelling and beautiful book . There’s something about mixing prose with the comic medium. You might say, why don’t you just create the whole thing as a graphic novel? Well… Maybe you wouldn’t say that but I’ve given it some thought anyways. The thing is Sjönning and I want to keep the pictures and word somewhat segregated, so no dialogue in the panels. That’s the plan. I do however work with sound effects, you know “Boom!” and that sort of onomatopoetic sounds. Fancy word. Another factor: It’s a lot faster not creating the whole book as comic pages, so it’s an ideal in-between project. Besides Sjönning writes some beautiful descriptions so it would be a pity to tell the whole story without words.

So without further ado, here’s 3 non-chronological pages. The colours are still work in progress.
