“Donk” is Jim Drain’s homage to Miami’s Donk Culture. These hi-riser cars, and the fashion, music and energy that surround them, are key parts of the Southern Florida landscape. For Jim, seeing donks cruise by is an opportune moment to reflect on the absurdly beautiful combination of the salty Miami air and Roseate Spoonbills in the environment juxtaposed with the artistry of the machine: neon, gold and those incredible rims. He describes them as “a car in drag, gritty, a repurposed American dream.” The primary source of this psychedelic poster is perhaps a little more innocuous. Spying a Christmas ribbon posted on Instagram, Jim was immediately drawn to the image he saw as “both ubiquitous and alien.” And so here we are, presented with a poster oddly familiar in its composition and bizarrely tempting in its imagery, so wrong that it’s right.

Frame Styles in Black or White
Gallery Frame full bleed means framing to the edge of your print.
Shadowbox Frame with a spacer is a method of framing to keep the art fully visible in the frame, edges and all. This gives the illusion the piece is floating within the frame either on a mat or on a foam core lift. A spacer is added to the frame to keep the artwork from touching the plexiglass. When floating, we add 1.5” all around for all art sizes.
When you should expect delivery
Once you place the order we aim to ship completed custom frames in 5 to 7 business days. We send the finished frame by FedEx Ground Delivery. It takes about 2 weeks to create your new frame and deliver it to your door to be hung and enjoyed. Prices include all shipping within the contiguous US and a signature is required. Because each frame is made by hand specifically for every order, we regret we cannot offer refunds or exchanges.
Why we use Plexi
We use UV-filtering plexiglass for all frames. Why? Because that is the best option and has become the industry standard. Chances are you will be moving and plexiglass is lighter, scratch-resistant & shatter-resistant. It also provides more UV protection and less-glare than glass. While a bit more expensive than glass, the quality and protection plexiglass offers is so good, most art sellers and galleries are using it and so should you. Our standard UV plexi filters ~ 85-89% of UV and 92% of light.
What we are made of
Our frames are the highest quality, produced by manufacturers here in the U.S.A. Our frames are made from woods like maple, walnut and oak. The mats we use are completely archival: 4-ply, acid free and contain a white core.
We always love to see where the posters find a home.
