Pet Peeve #269,821

Okay. Let's get one thing straight. When someone dies and you want to pay tribute to that person, you can write them a poem, you can write a book or a movie and dedicate it to them, or you can even build them a statue or monument to honor them. What you cannot do is put a sticker on your pick-up that says, "In Memory Of So and So". That doesn't work. What is in memory of them? Your rusty truck? The sticker? No! You're an idiot!

Zombie Munny

I recently got the artsy fartsy bug and decided to try my hand at designing a Munny. I'm still on a zombie kick (uh and who isn't, right?) so I decided to go with that. Here's the finished product.

I'm pleased with the end result. I used Sharpies for pretty much everything. When it was complete I added a thin coat of Mod Podge to preserve the work.

Half way through the work I noticed the toy came with two right arms, so then I had to make a decision. I was debating if I should make the wrong arm look like it was cut off or leave it off altogether and make the hole where it was look like it had been ripped off entirely. I decided to put an X-Acto knife to it to give it a nice severed look.

Oh yeah, and I'm still obsessed with glow in the dark stuff.

I used Golden brand glow in the dark arcylic paint for the eyes and the teeth.

The Munny definitely has a lot more surface area to work with than a Dunny. I think this was a successful first attempt and I look forward to my next design.
