AstroZombie Brando


I got up at 4:30 this morning to run and nature said 'no you dinnit' by pounding North Liberty with a thunderstorm right when I got ready to go. So, I threw in some laundry and uploaded my first ever caricature. I wanted to be clear on the definition of caricature, because I wanted to know if I was really drawing one or not.

The first definition: A representation, especially pictorial or literary, in which the subject's distinctive features or peculiarities are deliberately exaggerated to produce a comic or grotesque effect.

These are carnival type caricatures that come to mind. But maybe a Undead-Zombie representation of Brandon is still a caricature, exaggerating his peculiarities. Mostly his tendency to drink blood and mutate into an Astrozombie one night a month, which happened to be exactly last night while I was drawing this caricature, on the full moon.
That picture of Brandon taking a sip of guinness on his blog looks innocent, until you picture that same drink, only last night taking form in hemoglobin-guzzling zombie ectasy. I salute you, Brando AstroZombie. Please don't drink my blood.

It's nice that he still has enough decency as as astrozombie to drink blood from a cup. Its gotta be hard without any lips.

Brando is all class that way.

Astrozombies lips shrivel up during the mutation, which is likely why he is spilling some blood down his chin. Maybe he is drinking it from a cup because he made a blood smoothie.

Yield: 1 Blood Smoothie:

8 oz. blood, (preferably human)
2 oz. low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 medium banana
6 Equal® packets
1/2 cup ice or crushed ice

That is a fantastic representation. I had no idea Brando turned into an astrozombie on a monthly basis. I guess that explains his sinus problems though.

If I were Brando I'd replace that Equal with Splenda. Equal contains aspartame, which has been shown to cause cancer in zombie rats.

Cory you stole my aspertame joke!

hahahahahaa. I love it. Nurgle has surely blessed me with zombie times. I don't ususlly eat Equal because it doesn't taste as good as actual sugar, but now that I know about the aspartimine, I may have to give it a go, just to see what happens.

I do usually like to drink anything that's brominated. How am I going to grow stately and powerful horns if I don't drink a cocktail of bromine, aspartimine, blood, and used motor oil? Oh, and crushed ice.
