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

This remains one of my favorite illustrations — encapsulating in a single graphic so much of what I hoped to communicate about the climate crisis over the last decade. I see myself and my fellow climate activists like 350.org, Sunrise Movement, and Extinction Rebellion as canaries in the climate coal mines. We are highly sensitive to the issue, and gravely concerned about the existential dangers we all face. Can we raise our voices loudly enough? Can we eclipse the fossil fuel industry in time to mitigate the worst effects on civilization and all living systems? - Luke Massman-Johnson
