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 drawing comes from Rick's pen and ink illustration series titled "Visual Activism" and was inspired by a quote from Koko, who was the gorilla known for her extraordinary mastery of sign language and the primary ambassador for her endangered species. She died in her sleep on the morning of June 19, 2018, at the Gorilla Foundation's preserve in Woodside, California, at the age of 46. Koko touched the lives of millions as an ambassador for all gorillas and an icon for interspecies communication and empathy. She was beloved and will be deeply missed. Series 2018. - Rick Frausto
