Writer/ Artist and Simsbury CT native, Tim Golden didn’t set out to create a graphic novel. Who knew that painting a picture of a tattooed fairy would lead to this? But when you have more than one kid, you have to treat them all equal, or else . . . So after creating the fairy portrait for his oldest daughter, to keep the peace, Golden decided to make paintings for his other 2 children.
Hence the birth of Zombee Bob Jones. He began as a painting for Golden’s zombie loving son, but as we know, every picture tells a story and Bob Jones, the undead bowler from Bowels Montana, had allot to say.
As if infected by his image, Golden began writing Bob’s story and knew it was worth sharing. He took his ideas to Canton based, InSight Design Studios to create a website, promotional material, a blog, and bi- weekly webisodes to introduce Zombee Bob Jones to his public. They also designed his facebook and Twitter pages.
A self-taught artist, Tim began his career by drawing 1970 and ‘80’s hair bands album covers and then moved up to wood burning bucolic scenes on tabletops. He later began collecting and creating skin graphics. This evolved to painting in acrylics and after being put on a long hiatus due to a work-related injury, along came ZombeeBob.
The Zombee Bob team will be hosting a booth at Enfield’s First Annual Zombie Walk for Hunger on Saturday, August 13th The walk takes place in Enfield at John F. Kennedy Middle School at 11:30 am and proceeds will benefit the Enfield Food Shelf.
