Kevin The Zombie: NaNoPicBookWriMo

As many of you know, November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. I’ve always thought the idea of Nanowrimo is a great one, giving writers, both professional and not the impetus and support to actually sit down and write that novel they’ve had stuck in their craw. It’s a great thing.

I, however, am NOT so much a writer. My skills (or talents, if you must) tend more toward the visual than the written. But, Ashlie’s writing a NaNo story, and I didn’t want to be left out this year. So, I did what I do so often, and went my own way with someone else’ concept.


My goal is to draw a picture book and have it at least partially colored by the end of the month of November. To that end, (and to keep some sort of pressure on myself) I’m posting each page as it’s drawn on my Tumblr every day. And then on Friday, I’ll post all 5 for that week up here for you to look at. How’s that for service? Let’s get this party started, shall we?

So, in these pages, we see Kevin waking up hungry (as you do), going downstairs to find food and finding himself alone in the house. What’s a hungry Zombie Boy to do, I ask. Well, first you search around the house looking for food. Finding none, he wanders outside into the blinding sunlight for the first time, only to find a man delivering packages and envelopes to other houses. Would HE know where to find brains for breakfast?

So, that’s week one. Check me out on Tumblr to catch these as they’re updated and swing back by here next week. Also, I’m going to start a weekly feature here on MMP about our Geeky Greeting Cards where I feature a card a week. I’ll be writing about new designs I come up with and old designs that I like. If you have a card design you’d like to read me yak about, let me know in the comments. As always, if you have a Geeky Greeting Card idea you’d like to see made, let me know at Dane [at] If I like your idea enough to make it into a card, I’ll send you a set of free cards and do a post about it right here.

See you next week, minions!
