Mulberry Street was all about a child’s unstoppable imagination and turning his street into the most exciting part of town. Well, I hadn’t been to Photoshop World in some years, and like young Marco for Dr. Seuss, I was amazed at the programs and exhibitors who allowed my imagination to run wild with products and applications. It was a particular kind of spirit and energy that only comes out of a group of people being together, who all have the same overactive creative gene.
Because Photoshop World is more of a boutique conference, you get quality time with each vendor. On the second day of the show, while waiting for Glen to finish a short meeting with Scott Kelby, I was looking through the products they had displayed, and I had an idea.
Bay Photo Lab has a metal print product line designed for durability and capable of being outside. Performance EXT Metal is specially engineered for extended life in the elements! Perfect for use as outdoor art, photography, signage, and display, Performance EXT Metal will last 2-3 years in direct sunlight without noticeable fading.
Being UV, scratch resistant, and waterproof I had an idea to create something almost as unique as Mulberry Street! Having just remodeled our backyard and put in a pool at the beginning of the year, there’s one area that’s screaming for a print. Yes, I did just suggest we want a print OUTSIDE on the wall of the house.
The inside of our home is more like a gallery with gifts from a lot of good friends over the years. Well, who says art has to stay inside?
Stay tuned, because this is just the first part of the story. And, put Photoshop World on your calendar. This is a show that needs to be on your radar, no matter what your skill set or specialty.
