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

I chose to illustrate Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park because, growing up in Las Vegas, I visited the barren desert often. Badwater Basin always fascinated me because of the clay and salt formations that are created due to the harsh conditions and low elevation. I illustrated Death Valley National Park from my point of view and the way its beauty should be portrayed. - Lauren van Reken
