Description

Signed archival giclée print: here we have the midsection of a curiously engineered robot dragon creature, complete with leafy scales & twisting tendrils.This is clearly no ordinary torso, but a mad scientist's attempt at constructing a genetically-manufactured steampunk robo-friend, a textbook example of "zoorobotany." Did he succeed? You be the judge!

This is a high-resolution reproduction of one element of an original acrylic painting, executed in acrylics over a collaged background of text & diagrams (scanned from old science books & magazines) on 6"x 6" canvas. (Please note the print size below.)

The entire painting ("Goodly Creature") was assembled from six such canvases. If you are curious, you can see some process notes on my website, here: http://wordpress.leahpalmerpreiss.com/category/about/process/

If you are a bit mad yourself, you may purchase all six prints and reassemble them in your own laboratory! To do so at a discount, or for additional size options, please contact me.

The untrimmed paper size is 8.5"x11" (215.9mm x 279.4mm), with the live image available original size 6"x6" (152.4mm x 152.4mm) or enlarged to 8"x8" (203.2mm x 203.2mm). If you would like an even larger version, please contact me for a custom listing.

I will sign & date it in pencil, pack it carefully between cardboard for safe transit, & mail it First Class USPS. ***Please request insurance if desired.*** It may take a couple of days to pack & mail but should reach you in about a week within the contiguous US. Please note that the mails do take longer near the holidays, & overseas mailings can take quite a while. Expedited shipping is possible at an extra cost. Please contact me directly before ordering.

If you have any questions or problems with this listing, please contact me directly & I will do everything possible to help!

Absolutely beautiful print - exactly as expected. The colors are very sharp and the illustration is a delight.

I have purchased a bunch of prints from this artist to create a collage in my office. Her quirky artwork is delightful and I get lots of compliments on them!

I love this print! And it arrived very quickly. I had ordered 7 different art prints from various shops that day, and this one was packaged the best. Yes, it was packaged 'pretty' with a handwritten calligraphy note, business card, ribbon, and a refrigerator magnet. But, more importantly, it was packaged safely so that the print would not be damaged. Thanks!
