Just about 4 years ago, I approached my friend, Bert Monroy, and told him that I started a fledgling little Internet TV network called Revision3. Bert and I became friends when I used to work as a segment producer for the now defunct cable television network, TechTV. I worked on a daily live technology variety show called The Screen Savers and Bert would frequent the show as a guest to demonstrate tips and tricks in Photoshop. A good percentage of the time, I would produce those segments.
It would be putting it lightly to say that Bert is an expert in digital artistry, specifically Photoshop. You can read plenty more about Bert here, including the fact that he is a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame.
I approached Bert because I thought it would be a fantastic idea to expand on the types of segments that he did on The Screen Savers by turning the concept into an entire web television series. A few months later, and PixelPerfect with Bert Monroy was born!
Sans a brief hiatus for a couple of months in 2008, new episodes of Pixel Perfect have been released every week for 160 weeks. My math isn’t the greatest, but I think we’re talkin’ about 50 hours of PixelPerfect with Bert Monroy.
All good things usually come to an end, however. Bert has decided to spend the coming months focusing his energy on personal projects including his latest work of fine art entitled “Times Square” and his work for Lynda.com.
We wish Bert all the very best and hope he’ll come back to make guest appearances on shows like Tekzilla from time to time to share his wisdom on Hyper-realist art and Photoshop.
See Bert’s goodbye below from the last episode of PixelPerfect with Bert Monroy:
