I saw lots of large format digital,(73% of the show apparently) looks like it all comes from the same factory in China....
but saw a few things of note.
1) Thick film - this isn't new, but this Agabe emulsion goes on super thick wet on wet on wet, you keep going until it is the thickness you want, then dry it.
When you burn it, you get a super thick stencil, for printing 3D gobs of ink on shirts or other materials...
2) 'cheaper' Squeegee sharpener (Andydiesel check it out)- this is slick as shit, and cheap compared to the high price cutters. Uses a utility knife blade and a hand crank, shaves about a 1/16th off the blade in a cut, dead smooth and square.
and of course...
Drifted in later Saturday afternoon for that quintessential American experience...getting drunk in a 'real' neighbourhood bar watching the Twins almost win against the Yankees.... One of the staff was kind enough to open the gallery up for a private walk through, everybody was cool, until the hordes showed up after the game....don't remember the cab ride back to the hotel, woke up with a splitting headache at 2:30 in the morning with the TV blaring and an early morning flight.
"Oh excuse me while I puke in this bag..."
