Sacred Mandala One art print ~ This print was printed by the artist Dave Hunter with tactical expertise by Ron Donovan and LuLu over 3 days at the Firehouse Kustom Rockart Co. in Oakland, Ca. We created some custom mixed pigments – a couple of which contain light reflective elements and react differently at different light angles. 10 separate screens were used to make this print on several varieties of paper: Standard Firehouse 14pt Coated, Starfire Light Reactive 105lb stock, and a Holographic Sparkle Foil.

Prints will be shipped in heavy Duty Tubes.

As the sun came out today we noticed there was snow on the hills, which is a rare thing for the Bay Area – we decided to thaw out the ink…

Our good buddy Dan came by with his new fangled camera to capture some of the action – Note the killer posters by Ron and Chuck of the Firehouse on the wall. I couldn’t have pulled this off without these guys! And a very special thanks to LuLu who keeps the ball rolling and whips things into shape… not to mention Zoltron who delivered some work tables and a much needed meal ~ Best to finish the last color in the morning with a fresh start!
