"Knowing that my son loves the dragons that I draw, I created an image of a dragon in a chance encounter with two other beings, a fairy and a princess warrior. I gave the dragon hair and wings, being a reptile, it was a predecessor to the bird. A magical being in multiple worlds." - Lyla Paakkanen

About our Prints
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.
