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 visited Bodie State Historic Park a few years ago and have had a soft spot for it ever since. Bodie is located down a dusty, pot-holed, thirteen-mile road off of State Highway 395. It is a mining town from the late 1800s and today stands in a state of arrested decay. It has a fantastic atmosphere about it and really feels like you've just stepped back in time. I liked the idea of illustrating the town in a quirky manner. I've set the buildings and windows at odd angles, respresenting their ramshackle state, while some lights are still on – as if the miners are still there, watching. — Lloyd Smith
