I'm gonna pick Sean's story. They were all great, but the idea of a world re-created in the future where the future is dead is exactly what I'm talking about.
I loved it.

November 6, 1979
My names is Charles Piper, and I’m 15 years old. I live at 215 Oak Street in Pleasnatville NJ (close to Atlantic City). I go to Pleasantville high school, my favorite show is CHiPs, and I have to do this homework assignment in response to the Iranian Hostage Crisis for Mr. Leeds’ Social Studies class. A couple days ago, while watching Welcome Back Kotter, I saw a news report that said a group of Muslim students and militants took over the Embassy of the United States in support of Islam or something. They’ve got like 52 of our people and I think the Russians are helping them. I think we should use Delta Force or something to get them back.

So I have two versions here. I had initialy intended to draw this out and then do a charcoal tracing onto another sheet to give it the look of an old etching, but after I drew it all out I really liked the cleaner version. I figured i would put up both to see what you all think.
I had intended to make a much more graphic depiction of the Renaissance Plague Mask Doctors VS. the Zombies but once I started drawing the background of the Italian Renaissance it seemed to take over. I'm not one for forcing my brain to do what it doesn't want to so I rolled with it. No I think its a little creepy like a weird travel log of the wonderful sights in Beautiful Italy that just happens to be during a Cataclysm.

What happens after a Zombie Apocalypse? Is there peaceful cohabitation? Do zombies form their own social status based on the various forms of decomposition? Do they wear jewelry? Does technology still advance?
In my pea-sized and pearl smooth brain, it'd be like coming out of the Dark Ages. There would be an explosion of music, art, literature, and technology.
But I'm a functional retard. Do with this as you will.
Apparently I'm not the only one: http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/Zombie_Renaissance
Since I have to choose I'm going for Peet's sketch. I like the idea of an artistic portrait of your artistic style. Theres something indelible about a persons style that no matter how much you streatch never goes away, something about your personal style thats more permanent and telling then your looks.
So congrats Peet and my appoligies to the rest of us that have to submit our "Goat-C" interpretations.

I don't know if I need to explain this, but I will say this: she's a slut. Bung.
*EDIT* I'm home and exhausted, but I've explained this entry a little more in the comments.

Even though I wrote this on the drawing, many many apologies to SKEME and the other writers on Style Wars. I'm gonna try to find the original I was inspired on my own blog if you're interested.
If you haven't seen Style Wars and you lived through the 80's around NYC, you're denying yourself an awesome experience. I highly recommend it. Here's a link to it:
This is a political statement about how Reagan in the 80's turned America into a nation of mindless money hungry whores. Its about how the 80's was a time in our nation where we lost our soul for material goods and abandoned our creative spirit. But most of all I just wanted to draw Ronald Reagan as a Zombie.........alright all I wanted to do was draw Ronald Regan as a Zombie, but that first part makes me sound a whole lot smarter.

So although all of the submissions were unique and really great, I have to choose R.M. Sean B. Jaffe as that one just blew me away. Not only did he explore something I have been speculating (aliens have been here all along we just can't recognize them because we are bipedal-centric in thinking), Sean also captured the scene in such an interesting way. I've reread the story like 6 times now.
Sean one of my favorites from you. Win!
I have had so many ideas for this one but little time and resource (and skill) to create it. It's going in my finish someday list. At least 3 scenes I'm very excited about.

I'm pretty stoked on it.
This is basically what it's gonna look like when it's all done. Just with more detail/opacity changes.

... And again.
You wake up in a room you’ve never seen before. It’s small, wooden. The bed is comfortable if somewhat small; there’s a garish poster of an asian pop star in a language you can’t immediately read but looks like, you dunno... maybe Korean? Outside the window, unfamiliar trees wave in a gentle rainstorm. In the distance, you see clear beach.
You blink, confused.
Your whole world becomes television static, like switching channels.
You blink again. Your ceiling is above you. You’re in your room.
“ Wake up. “ It says, blinking sideways over softball-sized eyes with nictating membranes, gill-fronds gently undulating along it’s slender neck.
“ Ungh. Anh. AAAAAH!”
You sit bolt upright and scream. It all sinks in at once. That it’s there, in your room. It’s real. You fell asleep as the power fluctuated, and weird news reports were coming in from Florida and Morocco and Singapore when you could get TV or internet, but you never thought... you... You start hyperventilating, scrambling backwards in your bed.
“ (Told you we should have gone with the “ dead relative” program.)” another other one chides.
“ (Nuh uh. They respond best to the (universal altruist.) “
“ (You’re kidding. That thing depopulated something like half the species.) “
