Johnny Neon and his Zombie Durrants.

November 15, 2013

I have a very talented friend called Johnny Neon who draws like no ones business. He is so good and so fast at drawing (I’ve had the pleasure of watching him draw) that it makes me want to punch him the neck whenever I see him because I wish I had half the amount of drawing skill in one finger.

A while ago he drew a series of zombie pictures, they were all of famous dead people that were pretty damn awesome, so a few months ago I commissioned him to create a zombie portrait of Shane and I for our 5 year anniversary. Five years is apparently represented by silverware, so he skilfully put together this drawing of us, zombified, side by side, holding a silver knife and fork. He made it up to the size of this antique frame that I have had for ages and when he was done I got it fitted and wrapped for Shane.

I think it came out amazingly and Shane loves it as much as I do, so now not only do we have a painting of us looking like the Kardashians, but like crazy-ass zombies too. Too awesome. Thanks Johnny face, I hate you, I love you.
