The Beautiful and Damned by Savanna Steffens

Savanna Steffens

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.

I am an illustrator and graphic designer, currently based in Chicago, but originally from St. Louis, MO. I'm working towards a BFA in Illustration with a minor in Graphic Design at Columbia College Chicago. I enjoy creating things digitally, but use more hands-on art-making techniques as well, such as: ink-drawing, screen printing, linoleum-cut printing, wood-working, watercolor painting, and acrylic painting!

Artist Statement

Because the Beautiful and Damned was set in the early 1920s during the Jazz age, and the main character often sits in the bathtub contemplating his life, I wanted to depict a colorful and quirky version of luxury using this imagery. I created this using Adobe Illustrator and Apple's Procreate, and wanted to incorporate the lettering into the image on the book cover. - Savanna Steffens
