A few years ago I did my first zombie doll swap right here with Val & Friends. I saw a cartoon about zombie rehabilitation where the zombies were re-trained to do work by hanging a stick with a dangling brain in front of them. You know, dangling the proverbial carrot only in this case they like brains. The idea intrigued me so I created Dead Fred. I was so sad to see him go. I've often thought I'd like to make Dead Fred again for myself. When the zombie challenge was issued, I immediately thought about Fred. I dug up pictures so I could re-make him, but true to myself I had to change it up a bit. This time he's made from recycled wool sweaters and coats, one of my favorite mediums.
