Arthur Griffin, Zombie Apocalypse Survivor

An illustration of a zombie apocalypse survivor character for any such setting.

When the initial zombie outbreak happens, it doesn’t really matter if you’re an experienced prepper just itching for such an eventuality, a teacher wondering why the children are so menacing and pale today, a paramedic with the busiest (and most dangerous) day of their career or a plaing old business man having a lunch celebrating closing a deal. To survive the initial mayhem one needs a hefty portion of pure luck served by Lady Fortuna herself, a hearty plate of survival instinct, a second serving of spicy determination and an energetic dessert of will to live through it all and not giving up.

Also part of my Through the Ages character illustration concept where same characters are depicted in different settings.

Kembo Ree, A Corporate Problem Solver


A character illustration for the Shadowrun role-playing game setting but fitting any modern setting quite well too. This is also part of my Through the Ages series in which I investigate one character illustrated in several different settings.

Mr. Ree works for Aizu-Shoto Corporation and his official title is a Senior Consultant. What he does for a living is nauseating for most: he and his team of operatives hunt down persons of interest (PoI) and acquire information from them by (usually) illegal and quite bloody means. Mr. Ree’s team is called to work when the traditional corporate methods are either too slow or have proven ineffective indicating that either the information is of temporal criticality in nature or that the person(s) possessing that information are resistant to conventional and legal methods.

Mr. Ree also happens to enjoy his line of work. The thrill of the hunt and the adrenaline rush of the interrogation are enough to keep his motor running. He likes his job a bit too much at times which has been a concern for his subordinates and those assigning him the jobs alike. But he has a proven track record of results so usually his actions are tolerated.
