More from Undead Walking

At Undead Walking, we love to highlight the walkers and other great special effects. They are such an integral part of the success of the show. The walkers themselves are always complimenting KNB and the make-up artists in Tweets and on Facebook when they communicate with the fans.

Some of the other make-up artist names I’ve seen quite often from the walkers who post pictures and credit their make-up artists include: Garrett Immel, Kerrin Jackson, Gino Crognale and Kevin Wasner. I’m sure there are dozens more that are part of the make-up and special effects team that work so hard to bring us the exciting walkers and special effects that make The Walking Dead so amazing.

Next: Highlighting Season 6 Walkers

It’s great to see The Walking Dead among the nominees for these awards! Good luck on February 19th, Greg and Jake. We’ll be rooting for you! We’ll be in full The Walking Dead mode at that time as season 7 returns to AMC on February 12.
