Left 4 Dead gets pre-pubescent

No, you’re not looking at concept art for Left 4 Dead: Babyz, though we would dearly love to play as pre-pubescent versions of Zoey, Louis, Bill and an apparently pre-op Francis facing down this horde of cooties-infected playmates.

Artist Jason Chan wrote on his personal blog that the painting, titled “Zombie Playground,” was originally created for a ConceptArt.org contest, well before the launch of Valve’s apocalyptic zombie shooter. Due to popular demand, it is now available in three sizes: 13” by 19”, 18” by 24”, and 24” by 36” with prices ranging from $24.99 USD to $80 plus shipping and handling.

It also makes an awesome desktop wallpaper.
