1-50: Who's your favourite?

Today, I hit zombie number 50.

Sure, it's less than two months but, for some reason, getting through 50 already seems like a landmark to me.

Only three-hundred and something left to go!

So, if you find yourself wandering around this little companion blog, what I want to know from you is this - out of the first 50 undead, have you any favourites? If you do, let me know in the comments.

Don't be shy! Who is your favourite?

Zombies Don't Run


Well, the latest poll on the Too Many Zombies site took me a little by surprise at first. You see, I was pretty sure there was only one correct answer. If it runs, is it a zombie?

Runs? Zombie? Of course not.

But... the first few votes were cast and they begged to differ. I saw several yes votes. That's odd, I thought. Something's not quite right there. Maybe I'm out of the loop. Maybe Zack Snyder beat George Romero over the head and the Dawn remake is now the definitive zombie epic. Who knows?

Little by little, the vote shifted. Normality was restored. And a sense of peace washed over me. 12 votes to 4. Zombies don't run.

Nice to finally have that sorted.


The Too Many Zombies Facebook page now has an overwhelming 6 members. 6 people can't be wrong, can they? So if you're thinking of joining it or are one of those 6 people, tell me what needs to be done with a Facebook page.


Layers, the app I've been using to create the little zombie pics, is giving me a pain in the ass at the moment. On my first gen Touch, it seems I'm having a real problem just opening the app and getting it to stay open. I think I may have too many images in progress for the app to load and it's just not stable enough to handle them. And, being on PC, there's no way for me to dump the full images off my device. I'm not sure what the status of the app is right now but, if you're using it too and having any problems, head here to the Layers site and ask for some help in an update so I'm not alone here!

In the meantime, however, Brushes has added layers functionality. I love Brushes and was using it for quite a while before Layers. So I may switch to Brushes. But the look is quite different, mainly due to the difference in brushes available. That image above was created in Brushes, not Layers, so you may see the difference.

I'm not sure what way that will swing.

Thanks again to everyone checking out the undead and passing on the page!
