East End Apocalypse: Alysha

Alysha is a hard case. Raised in a tough council estate in the East End of London, she grew up quickly into a streetwise, aggressive youth. At fifteen most of Alysha’s teachers had already written her off as a bad-seed, never going to amount to much. That was before the zombie apocalypse.
The only people Alysha cares about is her two little sisters, Tia and Angel. She is determined to protect them no mater what it takes.

Inspired by the brilliant film ‘Attack the Block’ I have decided to make a small number of Zombie survivors based around the youths and hoodies of a council estate in East London. These much-vilified ASBO hoodies, with their violent gang culture and access to weapons, might be humanity's best hope when the dead start to walk.

You can expect to see a few more East End Apocalypse figures appearing on the blog over the next few months, starting with Tia and Angel. Whether or not I ever get round to making a whole post-apoc council estate complete with fly-overs and sub-ways, burned out cars and so on…well that remains to be seen. 

This figure is by Crooked Die. It was lots of fun to paint.
