by K.N. (Nikki) Martin
Eighth in the series by K. N. (Nikki) Martin. A wondrous tongue-in-cheek exploration of the "structure" of a hot air balloon. The artist first rendered a perfect technical blueprint complete with a balloon's build and operating specifications, then used colored pencils to bring the scale drawing to life and give it dimensionality. The print sold out immediately. Though completely different from the 1979 premier Fiesta poster, the 1986 image is considered to be of equal stature, sharing the same imaginative magic. To accommodate the anticipated demand for the print, the signed edition was increased to 750 prints.

an unsigned edition of 5,000 numbered prints. 20" x 30"
