staticmedium wrote:@ohdanielsan slicing through a stack of @aaronhorkey's prints. This is one of the final steps.

The process: First we photograph the original painting to acquire a high res file. Next comes proofing and color matching against the original. Then printing, flattening, and cutting each print by hand. Every print is then quality controlled and dusted before the varnish is applied. Post varnish each print is examined during a second round of quality control before they're cut on the guillotine. They are then quality controlled a third time because we're all super OCD and stare at prints all day.

COA > print. Anyone else, or am i alone here? Don't get me wrong, the print is great, i'm just a sucker for his lettering.
