Recovering the Classics

Don Quixote and Sancho Panza by Brian Hurst


Artist Statement

"I wanted to create a subtle but appealing illustration that hints at the epic adventure." - Brian Hurst

When he\'s not drawing pictures for a living he enjoys old movies, traveling the world and drawing pictures for free. He owns a small but growing collection of vintage luggage labels, and a moderately sized collection of children\'s books that he claims is for his daughter.

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.
