I asked friends and strangers for their favorite travelogues, and then pulled them together into a painting that aims to feel like its subject matter. The Modern Classics version of Out of Africa is the lynchpin, no? Or maybe Osa Johnson's I Married Adventure?

Framing & Sizing Info

We partner with our friends at Simply Framed to offer custom framing in your choice of frame, plus an appropriately-sized white mat and UV-shielding plexiglass. (You can see more details in our FAQ.)

Please note, if you order a framed 8 x 10" print or painting, it will arrive in a frame that is about 11.75 x 13.75". An 11 x 14" print or painting will be in a 16.75 x 19.75" frame, and a 16 x 20" in a 22.75 x 26.75" frame.

As all the frames are custom fit to the prints, framing your work adds 2-3 weeks to your delivery time, but it is SO worth it, we promise.
