Dan - Illustrated Print
Dapper Dan is rocking this floral print shirt. Reminding us, fashion comes in every size.
There's a gal, Katie Sturino, who I adore. I found her on Instagram (oddly via her dogs' account) and she leads the "Make My Size" movement, encouraging clothing brands to make larger sizes. She also does a series #SuperSizeTheLook, where she recreates fabulous celebrity outfits. Discrimination in art and fashion certainly isn't limited to women - it affects all people. As a cis woman, I tend to gravitate towards creating art with other cis women. I am challenging myself to think outside that very unfair box, and create prints with all kinds of people.
Size: 8” x 10” - easy-peasy to find a frame, versatile for most spaces, may even fit in a scrapbook when you don't want it on the wall anymore.
Orientation: Portrait - That's tall one, not the wide one
Paper Content: 100% Cotton Rag, acid free, lignin free (prevents discoloration and fading), and no optical brighteners - Tree-free AND the cotton typically comes from the textile industry.
Thickness/Weight: 285 gsm or 290 gsm - What does that mean? The paper is thick and durable, and would probably jam your home printer. I either print at home or use a giclee printing company - hence the slight difference.
Ink: Pigment-based ink - holds up better in sunny spots and stays colorful longer!
Prints are eco-packaged using:
Flap-n-seal bag, the "plastic thing", is made from compostable plant material (not plastic).
Rigid direct mailer envelopes made from 90% post-consumer recycled materials, and they are certified recyclable and naturally biodegradable. Boom.
Zero-waste shipping labels - both the label AND backing (the thing you peel a fresh sticker off of) are recyclable. We don't always think about the label part when we recycle!
Prints are shipped via USPS, unless otherwise discussed. Shipping generally takes up to 7 business days, but can take longer - especially in COVID times. When you buy a print you help a small business AND the US Postal Service! BONUS!
