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

Being a huge animal lover, I chose The Story of Doctor Dolittle to illustrate. Doctor Dolittle travels throughout the globe, so the backdrop of the illustration are vintage maps in blue, like the sea. Ploynisa is an African gray parrot that teaches Doctor Dolittle how to talk to the animals, so I wanted her has a central focal point. Lastly, the top hat represents Doctor Dolittle himself. The design and colors reach out to both children and adults. — Karri Owens
