Zombie Survival Kit

I feel this design merits a little explanation.  Late one night, whilst watching some trashy horror films and having one or two drinks,  I started thinking about what I do/use in the event of a zombie apocalypse.  This should have been an early indication to go to bed, but hey.

I set myself some restrictions.  I live in the UK so gun control is very tight here.  Also I could only use items and clothing that are available to the general public.  So the automatic shotgun strapped with a chainsaw and motion sensor lava grenades can't be used.

I woke up the next day to find I had a very thorough (and very long...) Amazon wish list.  Only by the grace of God, the shopping cart was empty.

However, I found I had a very decent, practical and surprisingly affordable zombie survival kit that could be used in a variety of situations and weather conditions.  I won't bore you with all of the little details, but I put some of the ideas together for this design :)

So if, in the midst of a post-apocalyptic situation, you see this guy wandering around, chances are, it'll be me.  And if playing Day Z has taught me anything, don't come and say 'hello'.

Assassin's Creed V: Reclamation. British Moors

I've started exploring more ideas for my fan-based Assassin's Creed game set in Victorian London.  With this piece, I tried to depict the grandeur of the British country-side.  Enjoy :)
