Bah! I'm still trying to figure out what this word sounds like when Boots says it aloud.

It's pretty much all I end up focused on LOL. But I'm one person. =D

Just me, but I get hung up on the 'how would the box close?' issue.

Maybe in a wire-takeout-box?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I think that would work just as well if not better than the pizza box.

[quote postid="4442001" user="bluejester"]Well...umm.

Sorry man, I usually really like your stuff, but the "Disco is Dead" thing just makes me shrug. Not that the design isn't funny or well done. It's just that the comment about Disco being dead doesn't really seem---um, forgive the pun here--fresh.
...

how about a change in the text:

disco is undead

disco is alive...well, undead

dance of the dead

zombie disco. now that's living...or not

staying undead/unalive

or something more cleverer...erer

Rule #1: No text.

Not much more clever to be done with that.

Is that a pizza box? What is a baby doing with a pizza box?

i would like to see a bit more of the checkered floor
But that lid on box seems like it cannot be closed - needs to be a bit, wider/longer so that it would overlap the base of the box.
otherwise nice one

Here's a scruffy, rough of my idea.

It's a 5 tier cupcake stand doubling as a mountain of zombies. It's full of nasty, undead cupcakes with one last, pristine one up on top, pumping his shotgun.

Thanks, guys. I'll lighten the floor a little more to make it easier to see. As to the box... does it have to make sense? It's a cartoon, right? I kind of think it's funnier if it doesn't.

I think it was sub as a daily, but I know it was never sub for a derby... don't know if that counts or not.

I know I have to get rid of the text, and I think I am going to add a background with a disco ball and a silhouette of more zombies dancing in the background.

Thoughts?

I have a few other/ new ideas up my sleeve that I want to work on first, but I would like to hear your thoughts on this.



I think this is HILARIOUS and works without the text, I'd wear it!

It's not like a zombie baby would have the coordination to close that box anyway! Double dose of clumsy!

I agree. you should put a brain stain on the lid though.


Nothing follows.

but the zombie baby had the coordination to open it lol.
just my opinion but if the box looked like it could close correctly - it would be funnier cos then then the brains wouldn't fit in the box lol they would be squashed

The top left checker is in the wrong spot for the pattern. It distracts me more than the pizza box conundrum.

Rough version of a design idea I thought would be cool. A 3 panel design with the zombies pressed against the windows trying to get into the survivors inside.

Let me know what you guys think and thanks

See, I'm thinking of it like a cartoon when there's a big thing in a small box. Someone opens the box and it BOINGs out.

@BootsBoots, love it! And the cartoon physics make it all the better for me.

My only suggestion would be to make the lid slightly deeper, ie. the same thickness as the base of the box.

Thanks, Spirit! The lids are usually a little thinner though, aren't they? Since they close on the inside of the bottom?

The baby zombie and the box/brains issue bother me not at all. I like the subtlety of the floor; lighten it and and lose the focus on the baby and box. I do agree with msklzannie about the upper left portion of the floor. But I'll go one further - it seems the the right and left sides don't match

Thanks for the input, Justzo. The floor sides should match... I just made a straight-on checker board and changed the perspective to make it a floor. I think maybe when I fix the messed up tile, it'll look better.

I like the pizza box for the brain.

The perspective of the floor does kind of bug me though. Maybe if the edges of the squares were hand drawn it would be less noticeable and fit in better with the rest of the design? Or maybe it's the wall that makes it seem slightly skewed . . . maybe see what it looks like without the wall?

Probably not what you're going for, but a zombie in the background holding a sign as in the zombie is excited to be on TV and wants to know if "KAREN WILL U MARRY ME???" would make me howl with laughter.

I didn't get where you were going with this when you said you were doing a 5 tier cake deal. But this is great, can't wait to see it finished!
