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

The image I created centers on a huge, distorted shadow of a man representing Frankenstein's monster. Symbolizing the monster's origin, the shadow stems from a distraught man (Frankenstein) and the literal blood on his hands, and on the surface in front of him. The shadow encompasses the man, while nothingness encompasses both of them. This shows both how the monster has consumed Frankenstein's thoughts, and how alienated both Frankenstein and the Monster are from anyone else. - brett annis
