Every so often, we get to collaborate with our favorite print experts Pressure Printing. The first time was with a Travis Louie release “Bride of Stan.” Pressure Printing sets the standard for quality unique releases and we have long appreciated their attention to detail. For nine months or so, we’ve been figuring out the particulars of the upcoming release of Marco Mazzoni’s “Santa Lucia.” Mazzoni’s work premiered on the cover of Hi-Fructose Vol. 20 and since we’ve received numerous emails from his admirers, so he was perfect for this project. “Santa Lucia” is a special print release, as the prints were flown to Italy for the artist to sign and personalized each and every print expertly with his color pencils, making each one unique and even more beautiful. It’s hard to pick a favorite! Take a look at the release details behind the scenes production photos and some of the different versions of the print Marco and Pressure Printing has created. The print is now available in our online store here.
