I'm Byron from Canada and I draw Zombies.
I've been painting and drawing Zombies, Zombie Portraits, Zombie Cats and Zombie all the other things for nearly twenty years. For the last 2 years I have been minting my art on the WAX.io blockchain primarily while slowly exploring others.
For those that want a brief history of my career, it's long and twisty with lots of ups and downs.
I started learning how to draw in highschool, the teenage me was really determined to be a comic artist for Image Comics and have my own comicbook eventually. Then I graduated and forgot about art as I fucked around in life, eventually meeting a girl and goofed off more. One day I got married and the next thing you know I had a kid.
It was time to get serious in life so I started a job as a telemarketer which helped rekindle my passion for drawing. And for a few years that's what I did for 8 hours a day 5 days a week. Talk on the phone trying to sell internet or credit cards to strangers in the States while drawing superheros and cartoons. In 2009 I began blogging a bit, then around 2011 or so GooglePLUS was formed and it my career as a zombie artist really started to take off.
Google Plus really tried helping artists get onto their platform by highlighting them in many ways. I was even commissioned by Google Canada to paint over 50 of their employees as zombies.
In 2021 I made my first WAX NFT and the rest has been one foot in front of the other, stumbling all the way.
For those interested, I have been interviewed a few times.
This is my favourite video interview because it was so well done.
Google Plus really focused on pushing the artists in to the spotlight and arranged interviews with many artists. I was set up with Forbes and it was pretty cool.
