Whatever it is, we all carry it.

After how many Art Journal pages inspired by one TV show does one qualify as thoroughly obsessed?

Well this is The Walking Dead journal page number 3!.. Plus I've done a canvas and am currently working on another Walking Dead themed project at the moment!

This journal page uses a quote from the show's main protagonist, Rick Grimes, as seen in season 2 episode 13 "Beside the Dying Fire".

In this episode, Rick reveals to members of the group that all humans carry the "disease" that makes you turn into a Walker (zombie!). This means that no matter how you die, everyone turns, a huge revelation for the group and for the story as a whole!

This inspired me to make use of this journal spread which included a pocket where two pages had been stitched together.  I used the main spread to show the fully alive pretty human girl, then the zombie version of her in slid inside the pocket!
So now, whilst I sit here impatiently waiting to find out whether my beloved Glenn survived the fall of the dumpster into the herd of Walkers, let's go through what I used in the creation of this page!
