Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead
mixed media
15" x11" x38"
Given the opportunity to participate in Gallery 1988's tribute to writer/director Edgar Wright, I decided to create something inspired by Shaun of the Dead. Wright is responsible for Shaun as well as Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the about-to-open The World's End, etc. Being a big fan of Wright's style I wanted to participate and despite being the easy rout, I chose to focus on Shaun of the Dead. I also wanted to take the opportunity to experiment with scale as well as steer away (a little) from the sort of 2D/3D relief work I've been doing recently. Shaun stands in at just over 3 feet tall and is 15 inches wide. He consists primarily of wood, foam and acrylics.

It is available here.
