So my friend and fellow author Ellen Oh recently tweeted a superb, highly entertaining series of zombie drawings done by her kids, who are awesome! Awesome, I say! At first my favorite was the Hasidic Jew zombie, although the World Cup zombie is quite timely, but then the zombie drawing shenanigans went to a new level. Ellen and I were engaged in our continuing Twitter feud, one of many such feuds I carry on as I build the majestic galaxy-conquering behemoth known as #mikesempire, and somehow Ellen ended up talking her kids into drawing zombie versions of ME! How cool is that? Check out the results…
If you didn’t know, Summer is also quite the accomplished blogger, having conducted this stellar interview of hotshot debut author Kate Milford on Ellen’s blog and this equally stellar interview of Theodosia Throckmorton and Nathaniel Fludd creator R.L. LaFevers for the Enchanted Inkpot.
Talented family, eh? Ellen recently accepted an offer of representation from Joe Monti of the Barry Goldblatt Literary Agency, so yeah, definite creative chops for the Oh clan. I’d try and tie this in to my own writing process one way or another (I do have some zombie squirrels in my new FrankenSmack work-in-progress), but really, the Oh girls and their zombie art have plenty of reason to stand tall on their own. Or groan mindlessly and lurch about, as the case may be.
