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 create a sassy pop culture version of an iconic classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I knew this would be an ambitious classic to reinterpret since the majority of people know the story already. I wanted to catch the attention of those who haven't read the book yet, and those who enjoy seeing a new face to an old name. — Mykel Vanek
