Moe, Larry and Curly are the newest subjects from my upcoming Zombie Walk of Fame series, which I'm previewing for you today. I can say I thoroughly enjoy drawing most of the time but something like this was pins and needles slapstick absurdity firing off in my brain the entire time I was working. Of course, these guys are based off the originals who indeed have their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, not the new knock-off movie which has come out recently. The team of actors who made this act a franchise earned their keep in the trenches and beat the living hell out of each other for the sake of entertainment. We laugh and laugh but ironically the English language doesn't place a specific term to represent the "feeling of joy at someone else's expense." The German's aren't afraid to admit they like so see someone take a tumble, for them it's "schadenfreude." I wonder if a sense of joy at seeing brains eaten would fall under this? Here's The Three Stooges Zombies!

...and because I also get a feeling of joy by spoiling you, here's some process pictures to see how they were drawn!
