Zombie mermaids

Saw one of those quiz things on Facebook. How to select a Halloween character based on your initials. Well I was stoked to find mine started with 'zombie'. Unfortunately it ended with 'mermaid'.

Not that I have nothing against zombie mermaids, I just don't think I can pull off a fashionable fishtail look. But it got me thinking Ariel would look pretty good undead.

Zombies have been in the news here lately due to the local election. The candidates have really splashed some cash on corflute. The number of election posters lining the streets have been staggering. Some have referred to them as 'zombie fields'. Not sure if that is a reflection of the candidates having no personality or what. Some see it as a blight on our nature strips. I see the signs as a lightweight, waterproof building material for survival shelters. As a bonus they make great targets for practicing your zombie slaying skills.

I know, posts are few are far between at the moment. Looks like 2016 is the year of writing badly. I'll take drawing over creative writing any day. On a recent show Magda Szubanski stated it took her eight years to write her book Reckoning. And her book was a memoir that didn't require scientific research, info diagrams and an extensive list of synonyms for 'zombie'. This could take a while.  

Bite off more corflute than you can chew
