Zombie TV

Zombie TV illustration for FHM Australia magazine, February 2009

A parasite that exists in real-life could lead to the Zombie apocalypse, according to FHM Australia.

The parasite is called toxoplasma gondii. When a host (usually small mammals such as rats and mice) become infected, the parasite can change the behaviour of their brain, causing them be drawn to (rather than fearful) of cats. The twist? The parasite is able to reproduce if its host is eaten by a cat.

Rather than medical diagrams I tried to take a more conceptual approach to this illustration. A pair of zombie hands emerge from the fictional reality of the television into our real world…

The blue car shows the technique for using a handbrake, or “the pro-drifter’s joystick”. Click here for more info.
