"The Animated Animations Company, under license from Nickelodeon has created these images using the fine art printing process of color reproduction known as giclée. Using a digital scan of the original acrylic painting by artist Douglass Truth, this process creates a first-generation "print" from the digital source. In this process Harvest Productions of Anaheim Hills, California takes a computer-based digital file and prints it by spraying million of pixel-sized drops of ink per second onto premium-quality, acid free canvas with an enhanced printer, specially modified for fine art reproduction.
The Animated Animations Company, under license from Nickelodeon, published this limited edition in the year 2005. It is comprised of a general edition of no more than 100 pieces, numbered 1/100 to 100/100, 10 publisher's proofs, numbered PP 1/10 to 10/10, and 6 hors de commerce, numbered HC 1/6 to HC 6/6 for a total maximum of 116 pieces.
The Animated Animations Company and Nickelodeon approve the techniques used in the production of this edition and proofs thereof. Conforming to the practice of fine art printing, the digital file used to create the artwork destroyed when the edition is complete. The original painting may be offered for sale at a later date.
No additional fine art multiples of this image, including proofs, have been produced in this limited edition, except as necessary to replace pieces in this edition that are damaged in production or shipment, but still maintaining the stated edition size.
Douglas Truth, born in 1953 in Indianapolis, is well known for his funny and brightly composed art. For the first part of his life, Truth worked in a variety of professions, including civil engineer, chef, truck driver, salesman, advertising director and English teacher. Dissatisfied with those career choices, Truth founded Flying Turtle Graphics, a graphic design and silk-screen company, in the 1990s. Truth's art is characterized by a bold palette and daring compositions.
In Waterlogged Cabin, Truth's use of skewed perspective combine with bright colors to portray the magical world of Bikini Bottom - don't miss this unique work of art!!
