Art: Painting a Casket

Art: Painting a Casket

My pal Sam Granger got a gig painting a casket at Zombierfest, a zombie-themed beer fest, and asked me to help out. I agreed almost immediately. Painting+beer+hanging out with The World Famous Sam G? That's a big ol' DUH! 

It was a beautiful, but windy, Saturday. Great for slinging paint onto a coffin. Not so good for Perfect TV Hair.

We set up quickly and got to work. Sam had no plan at all for the casket, so we just winged it.

Sam G knocked out the top. I worked on the sides and the ZOMBIERFEST lettering.

We each brought our own supplies, but it's amazing how our colors and styles complimented each other. 

This was probably the funnest gig I had all year. We were VIPs of the fest and enjoyed as much beer as we could (I mean, we still had a job to do!). Sam G and I now offer our skills to paint YOUR casket for your eternal slumber. It'll be the best looking casket around!

Thanks to Sam G, Zombierfest, & Kitchen Drawer Illustrated for the amazing Saturday afternoon art fun!
