The 9 to 5 Virus by Suilenroc The 9 to 5 Virus by Suilenroc
a.k.a Commuter Zombie Plague - coming soon to your working life. Well it's arrived here in London anyway.... :D

Painting based on a reference mobile phone image We took on Our way to work. This bloke was already grey but had very little life left in his eyes - We took the rest away here. :)

This guy reminds me of my grandpa. If he had a glass of whiskey in one hand and a cigar it the other, it would be a spitting image!

Captured the sadness in the living dead, and your subject matter is intrinsically himself a zombie by his wandering lifeless through that wonderfully crap existence we call the 9-5.
Beautiful.

It certainly dulls the artistic urge in Us anyway. Or fuels it through adversity - it's hard to tell sometimes. :)

Probably - deep down - you don't miss the commute at all. :D

Our paying work (in reality) now takes Us all over the UK. And the same zombies on their way to work can be seen everywhere.:nod:

But London's Suited Zombies take the biscuit. Cricket bat to the ready position.... :threaten:

Thank you - it helps to have so many rich sources of desperation to call on. Commuting sucks - but at least most of them aren't armed. :D

bloody hell..you captured it so well..for me..it is the 3 to 5 plague..when i have a break during a split/double shift....

but it is also a conspiracy from the little people who make the wheels of the train go round..it is a false sense of security that lulls you into this dribble sleep..
