Week 7 - John sumrow
I had come across this image while looking up a project idea for another class. I believe the composition and cool colors is really what drew me to this picture. The artist has positioned the zombie in a way that its body combined with the grave hole produce the letter "Z." What I also liked is that in making the zombie appear as a "Z" it does not look like an abnormal pose that one may see a zombie in. I like that the main focus is kept on the foreground object and the background is very minimal, but yet feels as if it is still complete. The color choice is also nice for this picture, only three colors are used besides black and white. Normally zombies are depicted as green or grey but here it's blue with touches of orange to bring out certain aspects of the picture. The name on the tombstone was also a clever idea. It reads "Sumrow," which is the artists las name. The name isn't displayed in a fancy way and is even kind of hard to read, but adds a nice original touch to it. Adding in aspects of the zombie in the word zombie also was I believe better that just using plain old font. It really tied the image and type together into one whole picture.
