Kathie and Brandt got bit, and are now ZOMBIE

  • by

ZombieThere is an ideal exhibition coming for those of the brain eating persuasion, and it is curated by the Circus’ own ethereally awesome Travis Louie! Opening at Last Rites Gallery on May 25th, Zombie stands to be a splendid group show that will will satisfy your living dead dreams or haunt them. Proving the awesomeness, our own Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters have a collaborative piece in the show that like the images below, will leave you wide-eyed and salivating. That poor Skelve doesn’t stand a chance it seems! What an awesome piece by the dynamic duo!



Zombie Versions of Brands We All Know

We can’t escape it, and it isn’t the zombie apocalypse we think will happen. We actually can’t escape the zombie apocalypse of everything being zombie. Actually, it is still cool and not crusty yet.

Ben Fellowes has taken the company adverts and logos we all have seen everywhere and converted them into the world of zombies. Here we see Playboy and Starbucks get a new re-branding with a thirst for brains, and the NBA use something other than a ball for dribbling. His work is fun and very imaginative; take a look.

Want more brains? More images after the jump!

Even A Zombie Knows Hands-Only CPR

  • by

The recent campaigns to promote awareness of Hands-Only CPR is all over the place. Gone are the days of Squints fooling Wendy Peppercorn into mouth to mouth. Now a very creative advert is out using the ever lovable Zombie theme. Even zombies know the modern proper way of only using hands and they want it to be known; so pay attention.

“Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day and we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn’t beat the crap out of him. We wouldn’t have blamed her. What he did was sneaky, rotten, low and cool…”

Countdown to the Carnival: Brandt’s Fantôme Zombambies

  • by

Step right up! Step right up, now! With the opening of Le Carnaval des Spectres mere days away, we’re offering folks a sneak peek at the fresh-from-the-grave, newly-reanimated and flat-out spooky editions that will emerge from the Circus caravan next week at Artoyz Paris.

First out of the gate is guts and gore galore from Brandt Peters, as he debuts his highly-anticipated Fantôme Zombambies. Initially released as a handful of candy-themed customs for Monsters & Misfits II, the herd returns as a slightly stinkier, unappetizing, but equally badass spectre edition. Entirely handpainted by Brandt with acrylics, these resin beasties have GID eyes that bring chills when beneath a blacklight. The Zombambies are super limited edition of 20, with five heading to Paris and the rest will be divvied up between CP forum members and a lottery (if applicable). They retail for $300 a head (intestine, spinal column, etc…).

Tomorrow the ghastliness continues with the long-awaited return of a fan favorite. So stick around — we’re just warming up!

Le Carnaval des Spectres opens Sept. 13th through Oct. 20th at Artoyz Shop + Galerie in Paris, France. The exhibition includes new works from Kathie OlivasBrandt Peters, Travis LouieChris RyniakAmanda Louise Spayd, and Teodoru Badiu.

Zombambies & Skelve Masks from KO & BP for Paris 9.13

And the instagram teasers continue with two killer snaps from Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas for Paris’ Le Carnaval des Spectres. First up: a herd of Phantom Zombambies! You all probably remember these debuting at Monsters & Misfits II as a series of three berry-rific customs. Well now the Zombs return in all their guts and g(l)ory as an edition. The first batch will drop at Le Carnaval, followed by the usual forum blitz and so on.

And check these out! The wall-mounted Skelve mask has seriously leveled up with the addition of niblet teeth, long noses, evil grins, etc. Some even have filled in eyes — take a look at the one in the second row, far right. It looks like metal pieces are embedded in the sockets with epoxy resin. Freaking crazy! … More to come from everyone soon!

Le Carnaval des Spectres is a Circus Posterus group exhibition featuring new works from Brandt Peters, Kathie Olivas, Travis Louie, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd and Teodoru Badiu.  The event kicks off Sept. 13th at Artoyz Shop + Galerie in Paris, France.
