Print Enlargements onto Custom Paper.

Thomson Portraits

Laura Thomson of Thomson Portraits brought in these 8.5×11 images to have them blown up onto a special cut sheet stock that she also brought in. What she has done in the past, is project the image onto a wall, and trace over the image onto the paper that she has taped to the wall. Us being able to do everything digitally not only saves her a tremendous amount of time and frustration, but also makes sure that every detail is carried over exactly as it should be from the smaller document.

I am anxious to see how this turns out for Laura, and she said she will bring in the finished product for me to take a picture of and post to the blog. I think she said that she uses pastels over the printed image, which completely covers up the print, but allows her to be exact when doing portraits of landscapes or faces. I think it’s brilliant! I sure wouldn’t want someone to draw a portrait of my face and accidentally make my nose bigger than it already is. You know?

Most Expensive Scan EVER!!!!!.

Today I set my personal record for ‘most expensive document scanned’. Not that I really keep track of that kind of stuff : ) But this was definitely a job to remember.

Aldo Luongo Paintings

They belonged to the owner of the famous Caleco’s restaurants here in St. Louis. They were original paintings by a famous painter named Aldo Luongo of the Kennedy brothers, and of some girl with a bicycle. The girl with the bicycle painting was AMAZING looking. I mean, local artists are always bringing in their prints and canvases to have PDF’s made of them, and their art always impresses me… but this girl with a bicycle painting was the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen in person. The way that this Aldo guy made all different colored messy paint strokes come together to make such a beautiful image amazed me.

I scanned these paintings so that he could reproduce them and put them up in his restaurants. That way he doesn’t have to worry about someone throwing a beer bottle at them while they hang on the wall.

If you have any pictures, or paintings/canvases that you would like to have ‘digitized’ (a digital copy of) BRING IT IN!!! It really doesn’t matter what size it is, or if it’s in a frame, or on a canvas. I can digitize it.
