Daryl Dixon Rides Alone in The Drifter Fine Art Print by Brian Rood

I’m better on my own.

Sideshow is proud to present The Drifter Fine Art Print by Brian Rood, an officially licensed print from AMC’s The Walking Dead.

I’ve been a big fan of The Walking Dead since the first episode. I remember the buzz about the first season at San Diego Comic Con, and it was unlike anything I had ever seen for a new TV show. I had heard of the comic, but I did not have a chance to get into it prior to the debut of the show. I’ve since enjoyed both forms of the story- I enjoy seeing the twists and differences between to the two,” Artist Brian Rood explained.

The Drifter depicts Daryl Dixon, the volatile and skilled tracker portrayed by actor Norman Reedus for the hit zombie television series. Seen in the foreground with his trusted motorcycle, Daryl rides out over the bleak expanse of the South as a lone survivor. The larger portrait of Daryl is framed by his iconic wings, against a background of earthy red tones evoking the isolation of the apocalypse.

Brian Rood added, “I really wanted this art to have a classic, almost desolate, western feel to it. Daryl is such a great character for this world… it’s as if the zombie apocalypse has made him a far better person than he would have ever been in normal society.

Each Fine Art print of The Drifter is hand-signed by Brian Rood as a part of the numbered edition of 200. Don’t let this one drift away from you- The Drifter Fine Art Print is a must have for fans of The Walking Dead!
