Morbia Circus

So I found out this was still kicking around in my drafts. I was thinking about this story the other day so I figured now would be a good time to post it.

Written back in '11:

Here's my Visual Development Book from last semester. (Now fixed up a little)

The story is about a group of circus performers who are turned into zombies but for reasons unknown, are not mindless. In order to survive, they put on performances and make the audience think they are "pretending" to be zombies. As they travel, they are looking for a way to turn human again and the answers to their mysterious circumstances.

The book is written from the point of view of RingMaster Skoo, as he talks about each of the main characters, the animals (which are also zombies except for one dog), their vehicles and home.

The story will be an episodic dark comedy with focus on the comedy part.

Cover is digital. Background pattern is digital. Characters are painted in FW inks and type is drawn in ink and colored digitally.
