Artist Joseph Webb has been featured here before, with (yes) the Love Zombie posts. As you can see, he captures the vibe brilliantly. So…i reached out to him for a quick chat via Facebook:
hey fab – my question is basically this – on my site we have a line of discussion about Love Zombies – basically people who get infected with the LZ virus behave like nutters, imaginary lovers, investing way too much energy into a not-really-happening or even impossible love affair, self-delusion etc. But the weird thing is that these sorts of insane crushes often generate a lot of growth, in bizarre ways. Even so, when the Love Zombie comes around, she (usually a she) realizes she is in fact clutching a figment. And your work seems to totally get this!? Please can you say a few words about your work and what the themes are for you? Also what is YOUR sign pls? Thanks. AND Please include best sites to link to for you just so i get it right!
Hi. Ok that sounds like that matches my work perfectly!
I’m not great on explaining the work as I feel its a visual language which speaks for itself but…..
The work explores the ideas you’ve covered really with ‘love zombies’ – those particular pieces are about the enigmatic missing person…someone who is lost, imagined, dreamlike, once there but is now absent. The Cosmos often fills the silhouette adding the the mystery of it all…touching on ideas of fate and destiny ‘written in the stars’.
I can go into more detail if that isn’t enough but might take me some time!

And also my main website is www.joewebb.co.uk for more examples of my work.
Oh I’m Sagittarius…Any chance of a reading of some kind I’d like to know what the future has in store for me!
God i can’t get rid of the Fb formatting to post properly here BUT – fast take on Saggo – get the $$$ & the spiritual dev happening and then you can bust out the Jupiter-Uranus-Zap-Zone individualistic freedom goodies.
- I also think that The Cosmos often fills the silhouette adding the the mystery of it all is one of THE most profound little lines ever. What does everyone else think? And please go like Joseph on Fb as i think his work illustrating the schizz that is the Love Zombie Virus is invaluable.
And while i am here – sorry – but it’s the Cap Moon…not so much decadence or Zen as innovative salads and goal setting for the Zap Zone.
