Scooby-Doo Zombie Hunter

This print from Travis Pitts came out in 2009 but is such a popular design I wanted to share it here.

We've Got Some Work To Do Now

Not only is the artwork perfect for the Zombie hunting genre, but the understated Scooby-Doo theme song is such a natural fit.  "We've got some work to do now" indeed!

Travis wrote about this design on threadless.com (emphasis mine):
Sticking with my favorite theme of heroic girls (see: Robot Derby Girl, Diodes are a Girl's Best Friend) and injecting realism or plausibilty to silly pop culture icons (ex: Madness of Mission 6 = PAC-MAN), I knew I wanted to make a certain teen detective her canine companion into the sole survivors of a Monsterpocalypse for the threadless loves Horror contest.

Everyone knows that it's always the timid, quiet, second-string female character that gets the dramatic arc and has the wits and skill to survive most horror movies. I struggled for days trying to come up with a semi-realistic interpretation of this toughened, nerdy survivor-type gal- until I remembered I was dating one, and asked her to model for it. She agreed -took a series of pics herself and held an umbrella in place of the shotgun. She wasn't sure about any of them but as soon as I saw the 3rd or 4th one I knew i had my pose. :)
The T-Shirt is still available for purchase at Threadless.

A nice framed print can be purchased at ImageKind.

Travis also has a flickr photostream here.

I am planning a Zombie giveaway for our loyal readers and to get more eyeballs on the blog from our Zombie Facebook page.  I think these will be great to add to the list of Zombie goodies.  And nothing better than supporting an artist of Zombie genre.  As Travis says on his own blog "the life of an artist is a poor one!".   Support Zombie artists!

Too bad the actual Scooby-Doo film involving zombies isn't like this...
