We were recently both delighted and spooked to see some of our favorite cartoon characters transformed into the undead. Today, the pre-Halloween zombification of familiar faces continues with Swiss comic-book artist Frederik PeetersPortraits as Living Deads, a vast collection of illustrations that imagines what celebrities might look like as extras in a George A. Romero movie. Over the course of a long-term blog project, Peeters created hundreds of these portraits — since he finished in 2009, by far the creepiest images are of those who have already died, from Amy Winehouse to Muammar al-Gaddafi. After the jump, we’ve posted some of our favorite pieces from the pop-culture realm, including everyone from Bob Dylan to Karl Lagerfeld to Björk. And if those aren’t enough for you, page through a whole lot more at Peeters’ blog.
