Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

Obama was - in 2008 - the first politician that truly sparked excitement in me. He spoke about complex issues in nuanced ways - he seemed to want to find the root of problems rather than simplifying them down to ideologically blunt political tools. He was also cool! This combination alive in one American politician was/is a rare beast. He inspired me to get involved the one way I knew how - design. I sent away for silkscreened shirts and I printed out stickers from my home computer. I pestered friends and relatives to buy my wares to offset the production costs. Slowly it became clear I wasn’t the only artist inspired by Obama. And now I’m happy to look back and see we were all part of a rare moment in American history when a political figure actually energized the creative class! — Isaiah King
