Weekly Jamster Results

It's been over a week, I know. One thing I forgot to mention here is that the deadline was extended to Saturday (7/2/2011). Here are the results:

The 1st Weekly Jamster assignment was to mix and match scenarios, characters and anything your heart desired concerning two films: Zombieland and From Dusk Till Dawn.

David McCracken decided to showcase his skills in Graphic Design. He's no stranger to poster design, having an arsenal in his gallery, including designs for Sherlock Holmes, Jonah Hex and many others. When you start to think about combining two worlds like Zombieland and From Dusk Till Dawn, the characters wouldn't be the only folks sharing the same space. The entire cast and crew would have to collaborate and Mr. McCracken strategically figured it out.

Next up is the lovely Kim Loh. She's one of my favorites I had the pleasure of discovering on Facebook. Who knew their friend recommendations would deliver such a kick-ass individual? Along with being one of the coolest people in this craft, she's also the Goddess of Ink. The idea of putting Clooney and Eisenberg in the same space was genius. Imagine the contrast and how they would play off each other.

Jenn Doudney is a highly intelligent and dangerous individual. She writes stories, balances work, contributes to Womanthology, completes coursework at a university and has enough time to walk the dog. Jenn is probably a demi-God or something  because she can also draw. Switching Vampire with Zombie for Satanico Pandemonium was a killer idea.

This one was drawn by yours truly, Kenny Gordon. For something that seemed like an easy concept, it was difficult to deliver. Salma Hayek is very difficult to draw (I just want to put that out there).  Anyhoo, I figured going in the comedic route would be fun...and it was. For those of you who seen Zombieland, you know how important those Twinkies are to Tallahassee.

First Jam!

Ladies and germs, 

Today is the day the Weekly Jamster officially begins:

From Dusk Till Dawn - The Gecko brothers, wanted by the FBI for bank robberies and a growing body count in Texas, kidnap a Pastor and his family in order to get them across the border of Mexico. After successfully making it to Mexico, they arrive at the "Titty Twister", a strip club practically in the middle of nowhere. Everything goes smoothly until they discover that the strip club is actually run by vampires. Chaos ensues.

Zombieland - A mutated strain of mad cow disease has turned most humans into zombies. "Columbus", a young college student and War of Warcraft addict teams up with "Tallahassee", a fellow survivor on a quest to find the last Twinkies on Earth. They soon run into "Wichita" and "Little Rock", sisters specializing in con artistry. Together they make a truce and take an extended road trip across America in an attempt to find a sanctuary free from zombies.

Your job is to mix it up any way you like. You can simply switch the scenarios and place the Zombie survivors at the Titty Twister or you can have the Gekco brothers pull into a town overrun by Zombies. It's up to you.

You can use any medium. Digital, traditional, paints, pencils, markers, etc. The deadline is June 28, 2011. Should be plenty of time to create a scene or whatever you want. Just be sure to post it here for our viewing pleasure. I'll also swing the images over to the Blogger site.

Happy hunting,

So, what, can I start this?

Drawing architecture can be fun. Especially when you transform or warp it in a way.

This is the college I just graduated from. Well, it's not just this building, but you get it.
