My name is Jeff Spicer. My business, SpicerDigital provides printing, design & photo illustration services, including my own personal artwork. Peruse these pages to see how I can help you and/or your business make a greater impact in the visual world.

 

I have been working with digital reproduction since 1985 when I began my career in the pre-press arts. From digital halftone film plotters to the first Iris printers to today’s inkjet technology, I continue to stay abreast of the trends and techniques used to reproduce art as faithfully and creatively as technology allows.

 

I use  Epson wide format inkjet plotters for all of the fine art archival printing. These machines print on virtually any kind of paper or canvas and can print as wide as 44” and as long as 6 feet or more depending on resolution limitations.

 

In addition to fine art printing, I have relationships with commercial offset printers that allow for great pricing on business cards, letterheads, postcards, posters, banners or pretty much anything you might need printed.

 

 

Logos, brochures, postcards, identity, websites and more. I can design it for you, expand on your design ideas or just get your files press ready. If you need photography, I can either shoot here at the studio, or get you exactly what you are are looking for through a number of stock agencies.

 

About my Personal Work

 

One of the more typical reactions people have when they see my images on canvas, hanging on a wall is, "What are these?". Which is exactly the response I am aiming for.

 

I start with photography, but by the time I sign them, they are neither photograph nor painting. On the computer, photos are merged and blended into one another and every single pixel has been touched by the cursor and redrawn so that the final images tend to more closely resemble highly realistic paintings.

 

I use a pen and a tablet as my interface with the machine, so in the way that the hand/brush moves color across a surface, it's very much like painting (only without the smells of turpentine and linseed). In the way that technology is used here to capture and present an idea, the process is much like photography. The stylus and the plotter are tools, just as a chemical bath and an enlarger are tools.

 

Most people are oblivious to the extent to which manipulated images bombard us daily. My work aims to - one, alert viewers to the possible, so that they might be better prepared to understand this "manipulation", and two, to bring forth a world where these processes are used to create something unexpected, simply for beauty's sake.
