Restaurant Overlooking the Pacific was pulled at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA on a flatbed transfer press. Each of the 13 runs was drawn separately by the artist on translucent mylar. The drawings were transferred to plates via contact printing. The prints were pulled individually, one color run at a time. After a proofing session, where various color changes were tried, the artist selected a “bon a tirer,” which was used as the standard for the edition. The artist continued to make changes and refinements and added more runs to the print during the editioning.
