Zombiemonkie’s Zombie Art Project: The Best So Far…
Covered here at the Tru:Teknology Files at the end of last month, Mikie Graham aka Zombiemonkie’s Zombie Art Project is now in full swing, with over half of the putrid series now available to purchase through the Zombiemonkie store. Featuring a cast of over 65 customised Playmobil figures, a different pair of the zombified toys have been released each day throughout the month of Halloween. Prices for the pieces range between $30-$60 depending on the level of sculpting / customisation, with each of figures shipped in their own hand made and stained 6″ wooden coffin.
We love the project so much that we’ve decided to present to you a ‘best of’ collection of our favourite releases so far- here’s hoping the incoming entries over the next week can maintain the high standard! (back stories taken from Zombiemonkie’s site)
FF: This man of the cloth has had an insatiable hunger ever since he lost the top of his head last week to an overzealous parishioner. This hunger hasn’t disappeared despite feasting on a majority of the choir as well as quite a few of the Nuns that he found hiding around the castle like church he calls a home.
SS: Maybe it isn’t smart to keep the famished father and this delicious looking school boy trapped together in such a small coffin. If one bad thing doesn’t happen to the poor lad, another even crueler act is bound to take place.
TT: This red leather clad pop star has been in zombie limbo since the mid 80’s. Only now after his official death can it be confirmed that MJ had been eating the flesh of young children for years to keep his appearance fresh and childlike (a little trick the zombie Elizabeth Taylor taught him).
SJ: MJ’s trusty boy servant, Sanjay has seen more than a child of his age should. Perhaps that’s why he can’t stop picking at his own brain. Luckily he still has that fancy turban to hide his self-inflicted wound from the ever watchful eye of his bizarre master.
TP: This dapper gentleman knows how to make a dollar the old fashion way…. pimping out street trash to the highest bidder. Although demand has tapered off lately, this “legitimate businessman” knows how to keep his customers happy…. introducing his new line of budget hookers- half the woman HALF the price!!
HH: Harriet would never go against her daddy. He helps her with money issues, never hits her, and above all else he buys her only the finest jewelry…. case in point her fabulous new Spine Bone necklace, a new design that is setting the zombie fashion world on fire!
PS: Ground control to Major Tom… Something with this space cadet is very, VERY wrong!
Ever since coming in contact with the on board scientific research animals, Tom here hasn’t been feeling quite himself…. In fact he is so spacy lately that he hasn’t even noticed the quarter sized meteor hole that has rendered his space helmet utterly useless.
B: Coming back on a deep space probe Bongo landed safely aboard the international space station and was whisked directly into medical care. This particular experiment seems to have gone horribly wrong, and bongo has become something the scientists on board have never encountered before… a new species that could very well destroy mankind as we know it.
The Ultimate Survivor – $50.00
Maxwell learned how to survive in the zombie wasteland quickly. Stay protected, stay armed, and above all else…. destroy their teeth and they can’t bite you! Frustrated with the current social climate, Max has decided to make a difference. Donning his custom survival suit and grabbing his sturdy sledge, Max has set out to take the world back for the living…. one smashed skull at a time!
We all scream… SOLD
Who doesn’t love the ice cream man? Smile on his face, bell brightly ringing, cart full of tasty treats. This business savvy fella has tweaked his once prosperous ice cream cart to fit a new business model…. all brains all the time and business is booming!!
Check out Graham’s other custom work over at the Zombiemonkie site here. His latest piece, entitled Hugo, uses the 10″ Bart Simpson Qee to hilarious effect (replete with rat/bird pet!), and will be featuring at the Bewitching Show at Stranger Factory this month.
