DreamWorks Animation has announced new giclee prints from Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, and Kung Fu Panda.

Among them are a giclée print of artist Tim West’s handcrafted paper sculpture of Shrek and Donkey. This original, one-of-a-kind creation is valued at $6,000 – but DreamWorks Animation Fine Art’s new 16-by-20-inch limited-edition giclée print is priced at $198; it’s one of a number of attainable new pieces that are perfect for holiday giving. Only 195 prints will be available at select galleries, and online at www.dreamworksanimationfineart.com

“It’s become a family tradition to enjoy DreamWorks Animation movies together, and our goal is to extend the enormous appeal of these characters beyond the big screen and the TV set into other areas of the home,” said KC Sanders, owner of Sanders Art Studio. “Our catalog offers high-quality fine art for everyone, from serious collectors to parents redecorating their kids’ rooms to movie fans looking for just the right addition to their home theater. DreamWorks Animation fans from around the world have acquired our works of art, and we’re excited to be expanding the line further.”
