Texas' 23rd by Caitlin Alexander

Design By:
Caitlin Alexander

I am an illustrator based in Austin, Texas with a particular love for dry-brush gouache painting. Both my life and work are heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the 1940's, '50s and '60s. I fancy myself a collector of memories as much as a collector of things, and enjoy bringing this sense of nostalgia to my audience.

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

Texas has a very conservative reputation, but you'd be surprised by the quantity of liberals in the state. With some of the largest, fastest-growing cities in the nation, Texas is quite diverse and continues to change. West Texas, in particular, is in a moment of transition right now. With revived art-scene towns like Marfa, and the beautiful Big Bend National Park, more and more folks from the big cities are moving west to get some breathing room. We can motivate both those folks, and the wonderful ones who were already there, to help create balance in our government again, and do the right thing for the right reason. - Caitlin Alexander
