A life time of creating. 

"Imagination" coming to life.

Hey Guys! 

I'm amped to showcase some images from a local shop/gallery her in Vero Beach that prints using sublimation on Aluminum! This shop is An Image Evolution and they are located on HWY 1 just north of downtown Vero Beach. 

I recently had my image "Imagination" put onto aluminum, during that time I took a few shots of co-owner, Jake Burns, who is the craftsman behind the prints. I'm most pleased to see the care and attention that Jake gives the work. 

Its always great to find a good printer, and these guys are among the best which is why I wanted to share this post. Check out the post, get inspired, and go get a print! 

Jake on the finishing touches for the floating frame backing which will be placed on the print. 

"Imagination" as a negative. Once placed on the print this will be reversed and in brilliant color. 

I've worked closely with every printer I have ever used, and Jake is at the top of my list for people I trust to complete a perfect job. He has a real sense of care and dedication when it comes to the final product. Here he is removing dust particles of of the Aluminum reducing the possibilities of spots in your print. 

Continuous inspection. 

The finished print on Aluminum. 

I choose metal because of the color and the durability. As seen here this print is fully submerged underwater, and this print now hangs in La Tabla Cafe where no one would ever know its been in a pool. The sublimation process makes way more sense than laying ink on material. Its more vibrant, perfect smooth texture in the print as if it was real life, and very weather/scratch resistant. 

As good as new. Water photography on water photography, I love it! 

Its really cool stuff, there's nothing like a print! I'll be posting about the Art Gallery that An Image Evolution is about to open. My work has been accepted and will be featured in the Gallery which is going to be a very exciting avenue for me. :) 

You can find this piece on the wall of La Tabla Cafe on Royal Palm Point in Vero Beach, no guarantees on how long it will be in there so go get yourself a delicious lunch and enjoy the art! 

You can also find this for sale right here on my website in my Shop Tab

Thank You for visiting and I hope you continue to enjoy all the fun Vero Beach has to offer!
