American Gothic Zombified

american_gothicOne of my good artist friends who knows of my predilection for the walking dead gave me a print of the image above a few months ago and it’s been hanging in my house ever since. I really like it — the details in the picture are exquisite. Every time I look at it I seem to notice something new.

When I recently saw the woman who gave it to me I asked her if she knew the artist’s name who did it and she told me it was Stan Yan. I could have figured that out myself probably, but the signature was a little hard to read. Anyway, it turns out that not only is Yan a local Denver artist, I’ve actually interviewed him before regarding a non-zombie project of his. Small world, huh?

Among his many projects, Yan produces zombie caricatures, or zombicatures as he calls them, at conventions, or by commission via his web site. You can find information on how to get prints of this piece, or any of his other zombie works or your even very own zombicature here. And stay tuned, because I’ll have an interview with Yan about his work in the undead medium up sometime in the next week or so.

    If you end up getting one of these from Stan, make sure you tell him this is where you saw his work. And send me a copy of the digital image, maybe I can put it up here with a birthday wish for him!

    Thanks again for the love. Let me know when you’ve got my interview up!

    If anyone is going to Starfest/Horrorfest this weekend, you’ll also be able to get into ComicFest next door, where I’ll be doing zombicatures for 1/2 price!
