Byron Howard’s Summer in Zootopia art was originally featured on the Zootopia page last year. Cyclops got permission to turn it into a serigraph, which ended up being a whopping 23 colors!

The printing process for Zootopia is really quite interesting. Eclipse Workshop first printed 6 different greys and then overprinted colors on top of it to get it to match the original – which would be well over 30 colors without the overprinting process. They had to experiment quite a few times to achieve the desired results. Each piece is also hand-signed by Byron Howard.

So if you want to own a piece of Zootopia art created and signed by the director, this may be your only chance!

Eric Tan’s Jungle Book Letterpress made its debut at Wondercon months back, and the online release will coincide with the Zootopia release today. Both pieces will be available on Friday May 5 at 12 PM PDT at www.cyclopsprintworks.com.
