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

This painting is based on a photograph I took in Manhattan. It was a hot summer day, and these two young girls stood out as the protagonists. They symbolized so much to me: freedom, friendship, individuality, and curiosity. The Megabus itself has a strong meaning in the painting. When it comes to America, there are dreams and possibilities that are always worth exploring. What Makes America great are the opportunities that come our way, and the confidence we could build in accomplishing our dreams. Nothing should stop us from being who we truly are as individuals. - Monica Alisse
