A good idea is much like a hungry zombie. It grabs hold of you and won’t stop until it has consumed your brain.
My wife tends to have a lot of ideas, especially when she’s drawing
in the middle of the night. Some are ingenious, some are just plain
odd. But when I awoke one morning to find the image of a young,
rifle-totin’ cowgirl facing down a horde of zombies, I was intrigued.
When she stumbled forth from bed a few hours later, I asked her about the picture.
Later still, after she had a shower, some breakfast and some
caffeine, I asked her again. This time I actually got an answer: she’s
a zombie rancher. She’s wrangling zombies on her zombie ranch.
Like I said, some of her ideas are ingenious, and some are odd. But
every so often, there’s one that’s both. I wanted to know this woman’s
story, and how she’d gotten herself into such a strange occupation.
Dawn had no real answers for that, which meant I ended up making them
up myself. Eventually that evolved into a script on my part, and a lot
more pictures on hers.
We hope you find the idea as infectious as we did. Saddle up and shamble along for the ride.
