Zombies in Love

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like Zombies in Love! This swap is all about sharing the love. The Zombie love that is. Each card should depict two hand drawn/painted characters at least one of which MUST be a zombie. Who your zombie is in love with or who is in love with your zombie is up to you. It can be another zombie, a puppy, a celebrity, a nun, your high school English teacher. Let’s have some creative fun with it.

This is a hand drawn swap. Backgrounds can be collaged but your main characters must be hand drawn/painted. I will do my best to swap quality for quality.

Rules of the Zombie Love nest
- All cards should be the standard size: 2.5” x 3.5”.
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- All cards must be original, and each card must be different. Please do not make copies or submit prints.
- Show off your talents. Send cards that took time and care and are your best work.
- Please don’t use hard, bulky embellishments.
- No stickers, please.

Mailing & Postage
- When you're ready to mail, please PM me for my address.
- Make sure your name, user name and location appear on the backs of all ATCs.
- US Participants, include a SASE, business size, with enough postage to cover the mailing of your cards.
- I will cover postage for international participants but please include a LARGE address label with your cards.

Returns
- When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists who made your love connections.

Most importantly, have fun and let’s spread the Zombie Love!

TF Balding
12-29-2011, 01:11 PM
Oh Debs... that's no fun... will there at least be brains???? ;)

Russell
12-29-2011, 01:24 PM
Glad to see you here debs913 (bones or no bones).

AnnD

Russell
12-29-2011, 03:00 PM
Okay Ann, I see you waving that zombie's arm in the air to get my attention.

AnnD
12-29-2011, 07:41 PM
Phew! I was getting tired! And that arm doesn't smell too good. Anyone want it?

TF Balding
12-29-2011, 09:37 PM
Lol, i'll take it (couldn't smell it right now if i wanted to).

Hey Russell SweetPea, is your addy the same? Had to call in sick to work today and have enjoyed spending it curled up drawing in bed (despite having strep throat and a horrible sinus infection... no worries, the cards have been sanitized ;) )... so i'm ready to mail and i'll have pics up asap.

Russell
12-30-2011, 07:22 AM
Yes, my address is the same. PM me if you need me to send it to you. Looking forward to seeing what you came up with.

Russell
12-30-2011, 02:21 PM
We gotta attract some more folks for the zombie love in here. When I count to three eveyrone yell out "Free Zombie Love in the ATC forum!" Okay now... 1..2..3!

themuppet
12-30-2011, 06:10 PM
Even though I can't make a zombie in love with a toaster, I'll totally play.

Penlowe
12-31-2011, 10:30 AM
Why couldn't a zombie love a toaster? maybe he likes his brains warm and hasn't found any fresh ones lately, making the toaster his buddy? I love my toaster. Sometimes I feel like a zombie....

oddbreed
12-31-2011, 06:12 PM
i certainly CANT resist sum zombie love, count me in

Russell
12-31-2011, 07:08 PM
Even though I can't make a zombie in love with a toaster, I'll totally play.

...but you could certainly make a zombie in love with a toaster that has been used as part of a robot... just a thought. Welcome muppet.


Why couldn't a zombie love a toaster? maybe he likes his brains warm and hasn't found any fresh ones lately, making the toaster his buddy? I love my toaster. Sometimes I feel like a zombie....

TF Balding
01-03-2012, 02:18 PM
Lol thanks... I think... ;) Let's just say the sinus infection+strep throat had me in touch with my inner zombie. Plenty of moaning and stumbling with just a lil flesh eating involved :laugh:

Russell
01-03-2012, 02:35 PM
Sorry you weren't feeling well, but it certainly worked in your favor.

AnnD
01-03-2012, 02:59 PM

Cat's Cradle
01-03-2012, 08:47 PM
Okay. In fear of being attacked by the zombies, I feel I must reserve a place on the zombie-safe party bus. Or is it really safe? Who cares about safety...I want in!

Russell
01-04-2012, 08:37 AM
WOW! What a great group joining us. Welcome Joes Lines (I hoped you would find this thread on your own, but if not I would have been sending you an invite), mikesatc, grrdjules (any level of grossness will work) and catscradle (I love it when peer pressure does it's job)

Russell
01-04-2012, 08:39 AM
scwk0511 - I ADORE that zombie chicken!

I got some early love in the mail yesterday - TF Balding's cards arrived and they are fantastic!

AnnD
01-04-2012, 02:30 PM
Juli, I meant to tell you that your zombies frelling ROCK. I got one of your cards in a zombie swap shortly after I joined the site, and I am STILL in awe of it!

Cat's Cradle
01-04-2012, 02:32 PM
Saw this and thought of our dear host: Zombie Rabbit (http://crochetbot3000.blogspot.com/2011/03/zombie-rabbit.html) :laugh:

Ann Darling - you should crochet me a zombie rabbit.

Russell
01-04-2012, 03:36 PM
Catscradle, I just went back to that blog and how cute are those Wizard of Oz finger puppets and the superheros?

AnnD
01-04-2012, 03:52 PM
Maybe for your birthday, dear.

And by your birthday, I meant some point in 2014.

themuppet
01-04-2012, 03:53 PM
As the world's most foremost expert in zombie bunnies... that one is okay. Ann could probably make a better one. ;)

Russell
01-04-2012, 04:02 PM
Maybe for your birthday, dear.

And by your birthday, I meant some point in 2014.

Given your schedule that sounds reasonable.

things that drip, ooze and smell....the love part I will do my best on! count me in!

Russell
01-04-2012, 04:34 PM
Glad you found us Lovefroud. Welcome to the zombie-love-fest.

Cat's Cradle
01-04-2012, 05:36 PM
Russell, I could crochet you a cute zombie love bunny.....in gross nasty colors. Before 2014. ;)

AnnD
01-04-2012, 09:10 PM
Yay! Lovefroud is here!

catscradle, go for it! I would pledge it sooner, but I still owe Russell his birthday present from 2010. :eek:

Russell

why am I not in this swap????
Please let me in.

Russell
01-05-2012, 11:35 AM
CINDYJOBBBBB!!!!! I am thrilled to let you in. It's just not a party until Cindyjob arrives. Have I told you that if I put CJB in my smartphone it autocorreccts to "fun". I thought it was appropriate.

Russell
01-05-2012, 11:37 AM
You should all know that by participating in this swap you are also accomplishing one of items on the 100 things to draw list at wonderstrange.com (Purely coincidental. I had not seen the list before I started this thread)

Cat's Cradle
01-05-2012, 01:53 PM
I do have a birthday coming in March.

Me too. What day is yours? I'm smack in the middle of the month, one day shy of St. Patty's Day. :err:

Russell
01-05-2012, 04:11 PM
Mine is at the beginning (the 3rd) but I try to celebrate it the entire month.

Cat's Cradle
01-05-2012, 04:15 PM
Mine is at the beginning (the 3rd) but I try to celebrate it the entire month.
That's a good way to do it. I see mine as an opportunity to celebrate St. Patty's Day early. ;)

I actually CAN celebrate all month long. DH's BIL is same day as yours; mine is the 16th; St. Patty's day the 17th; my dog, Cassie, is on the 23rd; DH is on the 27th. We've got the entire month covered! :D

Russell
01-05-2012, 04:18 PM
And speaking of zombie love - anyone here remember the show "Love American Style?" I vaguely remembering my sisters watching it and what I remember most is how stories would open and close with characters in hearts. Anyway, I'm totally picturing zombie characters in those hearts now.

Russell
01-05-2012, 04:20 PM

My family has the month pretty well covered as well. My BIL has the day before mine, my dog, Cricket, is on the 9th, my sister is the 21st and my other BIL is the 22nd. March is the month of cake for us.

Cat's Cradle
01-05-2012, 04:22 PM
Cake and booze! :laugh:

We have even more birthdays and anniversaries coming in June, so we have a couple of celebratory months. :D

grrrdjules
01-05-2012, 04:23 PM
Isn't it always cake month?

Russell
01-05-2012, 04:34 PM
As far as I'm concerned it should be.

debs913
01-05-2012, 05:00 PM
I remember Love, American Style. Anyone remember Mystery Date? Is he a dreamboat? Or is he a DUD :) HAHAHA :)

Russell
01-05-2012, 05:34 PM
Zombie Mystery Date - now that could be a fun game.

grrrdjules

CIndyjob

01-07-2012, 04:31 PM
Hahah, fab cards, prersonally I like your new word "festish", gives it a party atmosphere!

Russell
01-08-2012, 09:38 AM
Lots of activity since I was last able to log on. Welcom art junkie, alteredreality and claudzie!

Joe, I'd be remiss if I did not mention how wonderful your cards are. I agree with an earlier comment the "festish" sounds kind of party like. That long distance love card gave me a good chuckle. Thanks so much for posting them to the thread.

For anyone still lurking out there, the only way to even possibly get one of Joe's cards or any other cool cards you may see in the thread is to join and play!

AnnD
01-08-2012, 12:58 PM
Long distance relationship! Hahahahahaha! Joe, you are brilliant, as always!

Russell
01-12-2012, 07:26 AM
Oddbreed's incredible cards arrived yesterday and I have to say they are even more amazing in person. I know, it does not seem at all possible, but it't true! I had not realized in the posted scans that the cat in zombi loves a cat card is infact a dead cat. So many little details I missed in the posted versions that I get to ooo and aww over in person.

Lovefroud
01-12-2012, 10:56 AM
so jealous I ain't even gonna hide it! hrmph!

No offense to odd but her cards are amazing in person compared to online!

Russell
01-13-2012, 07:36 AM
More zombie love spread through the mail yesterday. scwk0511's cards arrived safely and taht zombie chicken has been making my chuckle all morning!

Along with scwk0511's cards came cards from art_junkie - hilarious and STUNNING cards from the zombie personals (these zombies are looking for love and are kinda lying to find it. One of my favorite lines from her cards - "Looking for a girl just like mom... tasty."

This gives me a swap idea......

This gives me a swap idea......

You have officially sparked my curiosity.

debs913
01-13-2012, 10:32 AM
Hmmm...all the ways to draw Russell?

Russell
01-13-2012, 10:44 AM
Hmmm...all the ways to draw Russell?

I have been drawn by artists on this site in several ways including as a zombie and as a South Park character.

Penlowe
01-13-2012, 12:39 PM
You have officially sparked my curiosity.

I was thinking a "I love you in an an arty and notatallcreepy way" theme, but the specifics of how it would work out are still fuzzy. How to actually swap that kind of theme seems... problematic.... There are several people whom others would like to pay tribute to, but I really don't know how the reciprocation would work. there is a lot of unrequited art love here I'm afraid....

Penlowe
01-13-2012, 12:43 PM
addenda:
maybe a pat swap where everybody does portraits of their group members?

AnnD
01-13-2012, 03:30 PM
Oooh! That would be fun!

TF Balding
01-13-2012, 07:55 PM
Oh yeah, that'd be a hoot! :laugh:

debs913
01-13-2012, 09:56 PM
Hmmm..from photos? Or drawn as they THINK the person looks ....heh heh

grrrdjules
01-13-2012, 10:38 PM
I'd say either, if the profile has a photo, great. If not, totally up to interpretation!

Penlowe
01-14-2012, 12:15 AM
I will think on this some more....

art_junkie
01-14-2012, 12:21 AM
We could draw ourselves as Russell's imaginary twin siblings.

*...contemplates drawing self with goatee...*

Heck, I'm halfway there I haven't shaved my legs since October...

AnnD

Awwww! Russell, your lovey zombies are so great! That little family warms my withered heart!

art junkie, "frell wit" comes from Farscape. Frell = f*ck. I made that my tag line because I have been so busy that I keep spacing things, tripping over my own feet, and generally making an idiot of myself. ;)

AnnD
01-28-2012, 06:47 PM
Juli, I'll share my Canadians-becoming-Americans story for you. My mother-in-law became an American citizen a few months back. Before the official ceremony, the officer from immigration read every name and nationality, and the person stood up. So for 30 minutes, it was a steady run of "Ei-Mang Wu, China. Tutu Sophabmixay, Taiwan." And so on, through various African and Asian countries. At one point, the officer says, "Brian Miller, Canada." A giant white guy stands up." Next, "Sue Miller, Canada." His little wife stands up. "John Miller, Canada." Son stands up. By the time they finished with the Millers, I swear, everyone in the room was in hysterics. I don't know why, exactly, except that the banality / familiarity of their names seemed utterly hilarious after all of unfamiliar ones.

If you by any chance want to march and yell "We're Number One," you really should be an American.

grrrdjules
01-28-2012, 07:20 PM
Oh my goodness, Canadians don't yell and saying "we're number one" is bragging and we don't really do that either. LOL. My brother and his family became US citizens, they would be like the Miller family! I think he was adopted but my mom is keeping pretty tight-lipped.
