Wonderful news from my fine-art printer, Oliver Zavala, from Picaflor Fine-Art Printing. He won in the "Specialty Products ~ Limited Edition & Fine Art Prints" category at the recent Pride in Print Awards with "A Hidden World (kākāpō)" extra-large print! Oliver prints all my extra-large paper prints, which are too big for me to print, and he does a fabulous job. I'm delighted to hear that the judges agree!
This gorgeous fine-art print comes in multiple sizes and includes a 10% donation to Kākāpō Recovery. Based on reference photos from the lovely Andrew Digby from Kākāpō Recovery.
This is one of the few artworks that Linton has named. He was fortunate to have helped with a transmitter change on Anchor Island a few years ago, so has experienced how special it is to be among kākāpō on a restricted island.
