Artist Wants To Color You Dead

SUDBURY, Ont. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What do you get the person who has everything? How about a portrait of them painted as a zombie.

That’s the ghoulish goal of Canadian artist Rob Sacchetto, who for $80, can turn even the prettiest prom queen into a creepy bloody zombie.

Says Sacchetto: “Clear pictures are necessary, but grimacing and animated facial expressions in pictures will make a zombie portrait turn out really cool.”

Sacchetto insists there is no face he can’t “zombify,” and that the best zombie portraits include “...severe head trauma, lots of maggots, and dirt from a grave.”

While he’s created many zombies, Sacchetto says he’s been dying to zombify certain celebrities.

Says Sacchetto: “I’d love to do a zombie portrait of Paris Hilton and zombie power couple portrait of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

He adds, “Celebrities make good zombie subjects because it’s so fun to wreck that perfect skin they have. The sweeter the face, the better and creepier the zombie will be.”
