You Shouldn't Have by Jon-Paul Villegas

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 poster was created by Jon-Paul Villegas of Noun Design in Brooklyn, New York. The poster uses the metaphor of kinship as a strategy for bridging the emotional disconnect that allows for the intellectual abstraction of natural systems and hence their eventual disregard in the mind of the viewer. Through the introduction of familiar emotional tropes, the viewer is invited to view his or her relationship with the natural world as a personal one based on themes of conscience, empathy, sacrifice and commitment. — Jon-Paul Villegas
