Marie Gilbert Interviews Zombie Portrait Artist, Rob Sacchetto


I love zombies and because I do, I get to meet a lot of talented people who also share this love for the shuffling dead.

Why would person want to be drawn as a zombie? The only way to get to the bottom of this phenomenon was to talk to the artist. Read the rest of this entry
