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

For the Dracula book cover, I wanted to get away from the style that is usually used. All of the book covers I have seen for Dracula have had a more dark and brooding feel to them, although I agree that is a central part of the book it can get rather repetitive. So I decided to take a more humorous approach to the cover by depicting a woman with a vampire bat head. I wanted to make it a woman because I feel the female character's in the book hardly get any recognition. I used acrylic paints for the woman and used water color and reduction block prints for the background. — Michelle Holt
