It’s time for The Dead Connection’s Merchandise Picks of the Week!
Each week we pick some TWD merchandise that we think is cool and that would make great additions to any fan’s collection.
This week our picks is artwork by our friend, Oscar Rodriguez III!
If you are unfamiliar with Oscar’s work here is a little background on how he got his start drawing our favorite characters from The Walking Dead. He says “I started drawing as a very young boy, cartoons, comics, pretty much anything I could see, and always making up characters. My father was a great portrait style artist, but I never really took interest in my work, so I always just drew for me. I’m 45, so I’ve been drawing a long time, but there was also a time when I didn’t do it at all. I started watching The Walking Dead and reading the comics, and again my love for the arts surfaced, I loved the style of art from the comics especially that they were black and white, and I think I saw this great Carl reference and the doodling began, and I shared it on Twitter. The response was great, so I added Rick to the piece, then Michonne and then I got more positive feedback. I was hooked doing this thing I like to say I was born to do. I was drawing for others and the rest is history! I’ve found I have many different styles including, cartooning, painting, graphic art, sketching and more. I don’t think I will ever stop drawing again.”
We are huge fans of Oscar’s work, his Negan print hangs on Allie’s ‘wall of fame’ in the TDC office! You never know when we might throw in one his prints for an upcoming Autograph Giveaway (hint, hint!)
