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 Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) use three instruments to collect data at high speed that reveals to us what is happening inside the sun and the solar weather flowing out. I made an iconic sun with varying rays and circles inside because the data shows how variable the sun is. the small dots outside of the sun represent the charged particles of the solar wind. — Jim Leonardson
