Hello all!

I worked on this project every single day for nearly a year and a half to make it 
the body of work that I had envisioned. Now, with your support, here it is! 

THANK YOU ALL for helping to bring this project to fruition.

I'll be sending you a survey shortly. Please let me know: 

1) your choice of prints 

2) your postal address

Also, please respond as soon as you can. The sooner I know how many of each print I need the sooner I can get them out to you! 

I will be listing this work for sale in my Etsy shop later this summer, but in the meantime, if you are interested in purchasing any additional prints please feel free to contact me at MikeSchultzStudio@gmail.com.

Print Designs

These are the 8 main print designs that make up the Thailand Burma Flora Fauna project. Each print measures 6 x 8.5 inches, and is on a white paper measuring 7 x 9.5 inches.

Additional Print  

Backers who pledged $50 and higher will receive an additional print-- Design No. 11: The Title Page for the Thailand Burma Flora Fauna project! 

The Title Page is the additional print promised to backers who pledged $50 or more. It's my favorite of the series. It features Mt. Popa, Bagan, Burma, and references many of the designs in this body of work.

Print Variations

Expect variation and character in the ink and prints.

Expect variation! Because these are handmade some prints are heavy and black, and others have good character and slight variation. This makes each and every print unique and alive in its own way, as no two are exactly alike. Every print in the edition has passed my rigorous quality control check!
