Pedal Zombies

I illustrated the cover for Pedal Zombies: Thirteen Zombie Science Fiction Stories, edited by Elly Blue.

I drew inspiration from images of San Francisco's 1906 earthquake, old photographs of Market Street to the Ferry Building in rubble, paired with images of critical mass riders streaming out from the same spot in present day. Except the riders are undead.

Here’s the book blurb:

In the not-so-distant future, when gasoline is no longer available, humans turn to two-wheeled vehicles to transport goods, seek glory, and defend their remaining communities. In another version of the future, those with the zombie virus are able to escape persecution and feel almost alive again on two wheels. In yet another scenario, bicycles themselves are reanimated and roam the earth. A talented array of writers bring their diverse visions to this volume: sometimes scary, sometimes spooky, sometimes hilarious, always on two wheels. The zombie apocalypse will be pedal-powered! And feminist! Watch out!
