Art and Performance
A collection of watercolors, drawings and other works on paper by Greg Jalbert is available through Imaja. The recent works are the result of the past 5 years of efforts and have influences ranging from calligraphy to abstract shape invention to sumi brushwork. The work has a two-way influence on the computer-generated artwork created in the Bliss Paint software and other digital works such as the Rainwater CD-ROM from Imaja.
Visit the Artwork page for Imaja's gallery of paintings.

Many of Imaja's products are packaging in minimal ecologically sensitive packaging, and include complete electronic manuals with hypertext linking and search capabilities. We are also looking at various means of electronic distribution of our products.
The Imaja office operates with minimal impact on the environment.
Programming documentation is researched online, and scrap paper
is used on both sides for all in-house printing. Outgoing printed
materials are printed on kenaf or hemp/straw paper. Both of these
types of paper are created from kenaf and hemp plants which yield
3-4 times as much fiber as a tree crop. Kenaf and hemp paper help
prevent destruction of old-growth forests which provide habitat
for countless species.
The office uses the light of the sun for all of its daylight lighting needs and is equipped with compact flourescent lights and energy saving devices on all of its computers.
