AMC's The Walking Dead

Also belated. below are a few images from the AMC's The Walking Dead show at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles.

For the show I created a lifesize drawing of Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus. It was a blast working on this show, and I was able to be at the opening in person and meet some amazing Los Angeles art aficionados and Walking Dead fans.

Hero Complex also made a 40 piece limited edition series of 12x24" prints of my piece for the show. In an exciting turn of events, Norman Reedus (the wonderful actor behind the character as well as Boondock Saints) saw the piece on the interwebs and stopped by the gallery for a print. As of this writing there are a few prints left, located here.

A big thanks to the folks at AMC and the fabulous Adam Smasher of Hero Complex Gallery for inviting me to participate. Stay tuned for more shows with them next year!
