Timothy Carr - presented by The Undead Bazaar

Zombies & Toys has put me in a unique position in regards to our next, and final, feature of The Undead Bazaar. Readers that have been around and especially those who take part in the fun at Facebook will most likely recognize Timothy Carr as the guy who makes the great digital images and spoof ads. I feel honored that Tim has made so many featuring Zombies & Toys and priveledged to have witnessed his work expand and evolve.

While digital imagery began as a hobby, Tim is available for comissioned work and plans on expanding the type of work that he does. For personal enquires, you can email Tim directly at or through Facebook using the same email.

What is your earliest exposure to zombies?
"Haha great question. In 1985 I sat on the roof of a station wagon at a drive in and watched Dan O’Bannon’s Return Of The Living Dead. I was just blown away. Tarman and Trash are still two of my favorite zombies and to this day I still get an uneasy feeling when I walk by a cemetery. It also cemented in my mind the fact that the zombie apocalypse will be caused by the government. Hell I even created a techno song using clips from the film called Macabre! "

Any favorite zombie books, movies, or games?
"Kirkman’s The Walking Dead is insane. Z.A. Recht's Morningstar Saga is an awesome trilogy. J.L. Bournes Day By Day Armageddon is a great read. Love the free We’re Alive Podcasts on Itunes. Way too many movies to name but the last two I saw were Dead Snow and Zombieland. I think my favorite Zombie thing is Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. There is nothing like getting together with 3 of your friends and fighting zombies in a hurricane or running through a mall Dawn of the Dead style."

When did you first begin creating computer images and what inspires you?
"I have always been an artist but have been working in digital media for the last 4 years or so. Great music, movies, tv shows can help get my creative juices flowing. Other artists like the amazing Billy Tackett, H.R. Giger or the late great Zdzislaw Beksinski are true inspirations."

If you were bitten, would you want me to let you change or put you out of your misery?
"I would want to stay with the group and do my fair share until it looked like I was going to turn. Then I am going out guns blazing while the rest of the survivors make their escape. I actually posed this same question and other moral dilemmas in the Zombie Survival Test App I made on Facebook so I have given it some thought."

If we were making a toy of you, would it be a zombie or survivor? What accessories would you come with?
"Survivor no question! I would come with a metal baseball bat, Springfield Armory XDM .40 handgun, Remington Model 70 .300 Bolt action rifle, Benelli M4 12 gauge semi-automatic shotgun, Pig Sticker Bowie Knife, gloves and goggles so blood spatter doesn’t infect my character!"
