I feel sorry for whoever had to print that. It's neat but not 23 colors neat.

a 23 color print for $70 is crazy.

i like the image, its a very well executed classy timeless pixar vibe, but i cannot figure out the 23 color thing. its kinda mindboggling. even struzen was only like 20 colors.

It's because this wasn't originally a serigraph. The characters themselves and the title and not the effects are 17 colors needed. then there are the effects. Then the parts where the effects overlap -- well the artist didn't make it so when they blend they create the color they are supposed to, so that's another color and another pass. Also, the background is another color.

Oh, the printer is Eclipse Workshop, the main printers of Shag (Josh Agle's) work.

Yeah was puzzled at first trying to figure out how they broke down the screens, then actually saw this one on press and it's as crazy as it sounds-- an insane amount of care going into matching the original pixar illustration with overprints etc. The printer is completely mad (in the best way possible). I'm just glad I wasn't printing the f^cker

I'd be curious to know why they went with the deckled edges. Not saying it's bad, I'm just wondering.

Crazy. Not doubting it but it's really fascinating for those of us not in the know. Pretty obvious that seeing this IRL will probably blow away the jpeg.

It's hard to see in the other pics but there is a background layer

And when we showed the artist she liked having the edges deckled to complement the piece. It worked as a double plus since if people also want to float it, it will look pretty neat.
