The Enamored Whale | Special limited edition 2009

It's been three years since I did an illustration named The Enamored Whale, that particular illustration means a lot to me cause practically marked the beginning of my illustrator career and still one of the most popular works I've ever done. So, in a way to celebrate these exciting years of an amazing journey creating art I made a stylized version of The Enamored Whale and brought it to you in a limited edition of signed beautiful letterpress prints. Available now on my ETSY shop by $20.

Print specifications:

• 8.5" X 11" Letterpress print, three colors (chocolate color has a metallic touch) on 100% recycled handmade paper.
• Soy based inks (VOC free) are hand-mixed and printed each by hand in a limited edition of 250. Hand signed and numbered by me.
• Carefully packaged and shipped in stay flat mailer, protected with print protector bag for long-term storage.








The prints were printed by the fine guys of Olivine Studio in Portland, here are some pictures of the process in the making of these beauties, I'm so pleased with the results! :D

  3. I love all your work.

    Acabo de comprar una de las ilustraciones, la ballenita siempre ha sido mi preferida y la verdad es que me encanta el acabado de la imprenta.

    Muchas felicidades y ya me muero de ganas de verlo :)

  4. Alberto,
    primero de todo felicitarte porque és un dibujo genial, con unos colores fantasticos y la impresion parece brutal...

    Tengo una pregunta... He visto que los vendes a sólo 20 dolares.. Sale a cuenta? es decir, yo estoy pensando en hacer impresiones de dibujos mios para la venta, pero pensaba que este tipo de impresion con relieve y con papel de calidad era mucho mas cara y que tendria que venderlos mucho mas caros... Pero veo que te han hecho una impresion genial y a un precio razonable... Me podrias aconsejar o orientar un poco sobre esto?

    Muchas gracias!!

    hey nice whale. and im not the only one to think that. in fact some kids stole your whale design and they're using it for themselves for their clothing brand and they're making money off of it.

  37. Acabo de recibir la mía, las fotos no le hacen justicia, estoy dudando si ponerla en un marco porque se pierde la sensación al tacto que es impresionante. Comprad mientras queden!! merece la pena
