It was an honor to work with Hero Complex Gallery and AMC's The Walking Dead to bring a piece inspired by the hit show. This 13 x 19 Giclee Print titled "Cherokee Rose" brings resident zombie apocalypse bad-ass Daryl Dixon (played by the incredible Norman Reedus) to the forefront. With this piece, I felt a strong urge to go for something a little different. Using the grittiness of the show and it's character, bringing texture and rough pencils to the figure himself. In addition, I wanted to contrast that by creating a more ethnic inspired color scheme that brought Daryl's iconic poncho to life (It's safe to say i'm a big fan of Mr. Dixon's style). And lastly, sprinkling in some more texture to the moon and rose petals, inspired by Daryl's season 2 arc and his gestures to Carol/Sophia with the Cherokee Rose. 

You can find this piece and much more fabulous artwork by some incredible artists THIS weekend. Online sales begin the day after the opening on the gallery's website. So snatch it up!  Show info below:
