Ink It Labs to bring the wooden undead to DesignerCon photo
Ink It Labs to bring the wooden undead to DesignerCon
by Natalie Kipper

According to one of Scott Tolleson's Instagram posts, a legend speaks of the first infected zombie, a boy named Rufus. In honor of the tragic lad, Scott has partnered up with Ink It Labs to create a unique wooden toy that will be on sale at DesignerCon tomorrow. What makes this toy so special, besides Scott's whimsical art style that can somehow make a tragic walking corpse look cute, is its three interchangeable heads. The heads go from a mildly zombie-looking "stage 1 infection" to a sort-of foreshadowing "stage 2 infection" to the final "totally f*cked infection." The heads slide into each other for easy storage and display.

Rufus will be limited to 50 pieces. The price is currently unknown. You can find him at Ink It Labs' booth (#800) during the convention.
