Week one-fourty-six of Operation Graphite – theme: Stronghold.

Shock - Castle Greyskull

This week on backyard blitzkrieg, we show you how to zombie proof your house with simple goods found in any supermarket.

While castles are the more classic and beautiful form of stronghold, other types of fortifications should not be ignored. One stronghold of note is would protect a family from Squiotes (North American, carnivorous, pack hunting squirrels) using only day to day house hold items.

GAME OF THRONES S02_E08.mkv_snapshot_49.20_[2012.05.22_23.50.55]

This Grey OP will be a shift from the mostly figurative studies of past themes, to more of an architectural focus. The castles and fortresses of the medieval world are often the first thing that comes to mind when one things of strongholds. These obsolete military structures still inspire the imagination, but any defensive structure can be a stronghold. Whether defending against orcs, wildlings, Jehovah’s witnesses, or zombies, a stronghold is that last fortification between you and crushing defeat.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Stronghold.

All art work is due on Thursday, 12.18.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 12.19.14.
