WWZ Concept Art
Okay, I’ve got a confession to make, and it’s one that any zombie lover worth their weight in brains would be ashamed to admit:
I’ve never read World War Z.
A shame, I know. At this point, I’m almost afraid to read it. I’m afraid it won’t live up to the hype. I’m also considering just waiting until after the movie, so that I’m not disappointed in the movie itself (as you know the movie never lives up the book, even in zombiedom), which is kind of shaping up to look pretty kick ass.
Anyway, all of that is to say that the above image, by artist Daniel LuVisi is pretty frakkin’ rad. It’s not an official piece of concept art for the movie, but rather one that LuVisi created to try to secure a job on the upcoming adaptation by Marc Forster.
Says the artist himself:
This is the image I did, to get on the film World War Z with Marc Forster, director of Quantum of Solace. Can’t say whats going on or what the outcome is right now, but it’s not in the negative zone 🙂
That smiley face is his doing, not mine by the way. Click on over to io9, who found this awesome image, and you can see some details of the work, as well as some of LuVisi’s other work and an interview with the guy.
