The digital reproduction of fine art is not for everyone. It takes a skill that takes patience and precision. No where is there a more impressive setup than Harvest Productions in Yorba Linda, CA. having literally dozens of printing devices from the famed IRIS to the Roland Gliclee Maker to the Vutek Press Vu Grand Format, Harvest has it all. Their main goal is to reproduce artwork exactly like the artist original by calling in the artists to proof the match between inkjet and original in a color managed environment. Harvest is not new to color management and go back to the Colorblind software days of the early 90′s. It is always an immense pleasure and honor to work with the brainiacs of Harvest and Bulldog Inks. This recent visit I spent time with James and Derek of Bulldog and we spent two days looking into the finer aspects of Profile Maker Pro, GMB’s flagship profile making software. James and Derek are great and it also helps that we share music and have similar tastes. Thanks James for introducing me to DJ Danger Mouse, I always heard he was genius and Derek, look out for the next album and World Tour by Early Man, it is sure to be a show not to miss.
