That looks more like a restaurant than a motel to me.

Thanks so much for selecting this for Hallowoot, SW! Ah yeah, and I'm part of the West Boo-Foo mythology now!

-

I've stayed in a few motels but never been eaten by a zombie so clearly I'm doing something right.

Warning signs of zombie infestation:

- Mysterious glow behind the motel
- Neon sign spells out 'Zombie', that's considered a bad omen
- Lightbox sign is the only word zombies know
- Blood stains, banging on motel office windows, general moaning
- No free cable (not conclusive)


Stay safe kids!

You're exactly right, I hope. Creepy, bloody and a little goofy. :^)

Thanks for the great comments everyone!

Must be some NBA player zombies to be able to get bloody handprints on that sign...

Reminds me of my time working Night Audit in a Bangor hotel, with black and white photos of local landmarks that can be found in Stephen King books (most notably IT), some of which shared a wall with the suicide room that still had the bullet hole in the ceiling. Ah, good times. I never did go in there with the black light like I said I was going to.

Nice design! And that motel sign is a great example of Googie (not google) architecture.

Wow, grants, Spiritgreen! This is awesomely awesome. And awesomer. I'm moving soon and trying to cut down on the closet, but dammit - I need this shirt!
BTW kiddies who are concerned with the print: I'm currently wearing my just-arrived Lucky Park shirt, which was extensively halftoned. It looks great! Yes, you can see the tones. But anyone you're letting close enough to you to see them, too, had better be a REAL good friend.
In for one! And telling a friend...

I seem to recall Spiritgreen is from the UK. Must be a Cockney thing.

re: the handprints on the sign. Obviously, it is a simple matter of forced perspective. The camera was much closer to the sign than the motel. The sign is actually about 10 feet tall in total, which explains why the zombies were able to change the lower part of the sign but could not reach high enough to repair the letters up above. (The fact that they spell out ZOMBIE is just a happy coincidence.)

Glad to be of help.

Any one else seeing that?



Thanks. Now I'm sitting in Chicago at 8:45 am craving an animal style double double. And it's all YOUR fault.

and how did they put the letters up on the sign??? could've sworn zombies can't climb...

(I do love the creepy effect and how the sky looks, although the glowy eyes makes me think more robot zombies than normal zombies >.>)



Ever seen a hunter from L4D? they have no problem climbing, jumping large distances, etc.

yeah, im a nerd.

But I don't know when I would wear this shirt other than Halloween or when I'm watching The Walking Dead.

I get more of a Great Northern Hotel vibe. At a place like this I would expect to a giant man, a little-person in a red suit, and my favorite gum to come back into style. Frankly, I find those far more terrifying than zombies.

I haven't seen the actual tee yet, I spent a loooong time trying to make sure it'd print as well as could be but I was still a little nervous so that's awesome to hear. Thanks for posting guys!
