Canon pro pixma 100

I’ve been using the brand new Canon Pixma Pro-100 printer and am generally happy with it. When I bought it my older but dependable HP K8600 wide format printer gave out. I searched out where to buy new printheads for the HP but its ten years old and the printheads (not ink cartridges) are harder to find and unreliable new. I also had to color calibrate and choose from all the paper offerings for the Canon printer.
The Canon Pro-100 prints up to 13” x 19”, has network printing (very helpful) and has very good archival ratings for prints stored in a portfolio (about 200 years). The down sides of the Canon are small ink cartridges, and prints start to fade after 40 years of display in public. But I have a glossy printer once again, and I hope to work my way to a better/bigger format glossy printer.
The timing was right for a new printer, as the Canon was on sale, had a $200 rebate, and I had two generous gift cards to purchase it. A special thanks must also go to Daniel Burke and his generous and enthusiastic support that clinched the new printer upgrade.
Thanks again.

Well the latest chapter of Dragonet has been wrapped up but I continue to create some background art and info available on my Patreon page. I thought I was done but there'll be one more illustration.
I've also been able to acquire a new desktop printer thanks to your support. I hope to offer some posters of my art very soon. Thanks.

Work continues on updating Dragonet and finishing other art projects. There's lots of ways to support this site, check out the Dragonet books for sale at the "In Print" link below, the desktop art link, and prints at the Illustration link.
I need to stock up on printing and ink supplies for my archival printer, so I'm taking pre orders for my prints available in my Illustration gallery. If I get enough pre orders (50 orders or more) I may even invest in a new archival printer that can print in gloss and matte (I can only produce matte prints at this time).
So spread the word, and contact me first with your pre order or questions. I have a few prints on hand, but won't be able to print gloss versions of my art unless I can get to 50 pre orders and secure a new printer. Thanks!
