Zombienose is the author of the darkly poetic storybook series of twisted tales, known as The Zombienose Collection’ – There Are No Happy Endings.
For those who know him best he is a gentle and kind character, secretly optimistic. It is said that his work offers endless comfort among the souls that are never quite sane in the night. Hailing from the depths of nowhere he derives inspiration from the unloved, the hopeless, the dreamless, disenchanted, dispossessed, and neglected. A master of macabre rhymes and morose artwork with a splatter of whimsy, Zombienose welcomes all who wander into his murky world.
“My formative years were spent immersed in eerie Halloween tales or various peculiar yarns of misfortunate – Edgar Allan Poe, Edward Gorey, Dr. Seuss and Rod Serling would be the culprits to blame. Artists like Salvador Dali, Edward Munch, Tim Burton and Francis Bacon are guilty influences, as well. Attach Frankenstein and the Wizard of Oz to the recipe and you have the essence of my toils.”
“Any underlying messages cannot be credited to merely my own imagination. Circumstance drives my fate and guides my work. My stories seem to write themselves and my characters tend to seize control of their own development, steering their destinies to become masters of their fate. I feel as a proud parent would.”
Zombienose is presently in the process of creating new sculptures & sketches to be unveiled early 2009, sometime after the release of his 3rd book. The artwork of Zombienose is on display monthly at various art galleries. Information is usually posted on Zombienose.com or on the Zombienose Myspace page. All books in the Zombienose Collection include read-along CD with sound effects and story theme song! Books are available online at Amazon.com, Target.com, Borders Online or Icecatbooks.com.
