The last one in the series process, by that time I was already comfortable with the format, process and way of thinking about the colours for little print and totally enamoured with the zombieseedz concept and the brand’s founder Teprine. Out of the whole series I wanted to have at least one image just come out of a sketchbook without using a specific idea or photo as a reference but rather freely express a sensation, in this case a sensation of zombie leaves glooming around and tailing above you with threatening smirks and fallen out eyes and stitches all over their bodies. I also was trying to make it more simplistic in colour thinking forward about the printing process and scaling down the image.
Holy basil or Tulsi is also one of my ally plants, I love it in food, love it in tea and lemonades, for bathing, cleansing and sweat-lodging, i think it’s marvelous and all around healing. This design was also executed with watercolour and ink and luckily recorded in time-lapse for you.
