The Making of A Roy Henry Vickers Print offers us a rare opportunity. Very few artists over the course of history have ever allowed the public into their creative process. This DVD gives us an over-the-shoulder view of how Roy creates his magic. From his inspiration to drawing one of his renowned eagles, putting together the layers of a print and screen printing, Roy’s creative process is full of meaning.
