Believed to be one of the greatest animated features of our time, "The Iron Giant" treated viewers to a deeply-moving story of a boy befriending a giant robot whose emergence typified in some, the paranoia of America’s Red Scare period. This image was originally drawn by featured Iron Giant artist, Dean Wellins. It was transferred onto acetate in the classic animation style. The background was designed and hand-painted by award-winning background artist, Alan Bodner, who also was the Art Director of The Iron Giant. The piece is hand-numbered and signed by Academy Award winning Director Brad Bird.

Sometimes described as "digital lithographs", giclees are created using extremely sophisticated computer equipment to create a reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Most giclees start with an original painting or illustration in oil, watercolour, or charcoal. The original work is scanned and colour corrected under the supervision of the artist before being printed with a extremely high resolution giclee printer. From the French term for "spray of ink", giclee printers lay down millions of microscopic ink droplets with such precision that the images, colours, and subtle nuances of the original piece are reproduced with breathtaking accuracy and beauty.
Giclees are created on high quality acid-free rag paper or on canvas, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
Limited edition giclees are a beautiful addition to any home and any art collection.
