Summer is almost gone(but not the good weather) and It's been a while since I've posted.  

In May Quirk books contacted me about a book they wanted me to illustrate for there deluxe edition.   The book is called "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"... yes Jane Austen wrote it...   we'll at least the "Pride and Prejudice part.  Author Seth Grahame-Smith wrote the "Zombies" part.  Set in the Regency era in England, these reserved and dignified (as well as eligible) sisters are out to rid civilization of the plague of zombies.   These aren't your average debutantes.  They have no hesitation about cutting throats and getting medieval on zombie asses with their dynamic martial arts.   These are just some of the images that I came up with(13 in total).   The book is out and here are some of the reviews.

“A delectable literary mash-up…might we hope for a sequel? Grade A-.”

—Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly



“Jane Austen isn't for everyone. Neither are zombies. But combine the two and the only question is, Why didn't anyone think of this before? The judicious addition of flesh-eating undead to this otherwise faithful reworking is just what Austen's gem needed.”

--Wired



“Has there ever been a work of literature that couldn't be improved by adding zombies?”

--Lev Grossman, Time



“Such is the accomplishment of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies that after reveling in its timeless intrigue, it’s difficult to remember how Austen’s novel got along without the undead. What begins as a gimmick ends with renewed appreciation of the indomitable appeal of Austen’s language, characters, and situations. Grade A.”

--The Onion A.V. Club
