    Except for Bambino monkey, Charuca, the guy in Colosseum and the cow, all others seem to be designed by people seriously deprived of sleep and motherly love..

    Justin,
    My suggestion is to contact the designer through Behance if you are interested in purchasing a print. It may be possible with some of them, but in general I don’t think they are available.
