This absolutely gorgeous print is a collaboration between Audrey Kawasaki and Pressure Printing. It is not for the faint hearted though, costing a whopping $1,500 US, even more for international buyers. If you have that kind of cash to spare, I'd get over to Pressure Printing ASAP to get your hands on this exquisite piece.
There are only 50 of these so I don't expect them to last too long, but at that price they might be around for a little while at least. Audrey is so unbelievably popular these days that I am sure a lot of people will have no qualms paying the price, as her prints resell easily at 3 times original price.
Prints are framed in a hand made soft maple frame, and have been signed and numbered by Audrey. The paper of the print has been embossed with patterns designed by AK and each and every one was individually hand coloured by her as well.
Audrey's drawing is of such intricate detail that it just makes this piece so nice. I have always really liked her drawings, often more than the paintings. They are just so crisp and perfect.
You can read more of the Pressure Printing process and see lots of pics on their blog.
And with that I would like to leave you with my 2 all time favourite pieces from Audrey, both drawings done in graphite that are just so beautiful and detailed I find it hard to comprehend someone my age being so unbelievably talented.
These 2 drawings were part of the 'Smitten' show at thinkspace gallery, May 2007.
