The Awakening by Beth Little

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 wanted to show the main character finding her awakening at the bottom of the ocean. The ocean is important because in the book, this is where she has her major moments. I also thought it was important to show her in clothing of the time period since she is waking up from societal expectations of women. I hand drew and inked the linework and then scanned it into Photoshop where I colorized it using watercolor brushes and textures. - Beth Little
