Piece description from the artist
Every year, Montserrat College of Art’s illustration department hosts a show in the school’s main gallery on Cabot Street that allows for students, faculty, and alumni alike to submit various pieces based firmly or loosely around a certain named theme – a theme decided upon beforehand by the illustration faculty. For 2010, the show’s theme was “Zombies”.
This piece is one half of a series I created specifically for the occasion. Looking more for a pointed kind of humor for my work, something that might, perhaps, make my work more accessible or literal (also for the occasion), I ended up landing by the idea of having something obnoxious and blunt – a ridiculous zombie, infirm to the point of comedy, with its inner dialogue splashed boldly above and behind its head – ‘DON’T SHOOT ME’
The show was a hit, and this piece was a topic of conversation for most of that year’s senior illustration classes during that time. It was returned to me with the note that it unofficially won ‘Best in Show‘ among the faculty
