Box & Flea

Need to mention a collaboration I've been working pretty hard on lately with longtime friend Jeremy aka 'The Heat' of Tacklebox. This past winter we somehow decided our shared upbringing amongst tractors and forest-bound-boats was the perfect foundation for a fashion accessory line.

We started with these prints on totes:

Jeremy curing an early test print. Ties are optional but recommended when screen printing.

I look like I am doing something incorrectly here.

Here are some hopeful bandana candidates. We have developed and printed about 10 of these and are currently working on a tool tote, ties, and leather items.

So all in all it's been a welcome outlet for two architect's creative surplus, a great way to take advantage of the resources of the studio, and a great testing ground for perfecting new processes. Stay tuned for more and check us out at Smith + Butler.

4 Color CMYK Process Poster

No I am not dead. I just had a little architecture job to take care of but that's finished up. This past memorial day I got around to printing another process poster, properly this time. It was Monday afternoon and I threw a collage together with some stuff I had lying around. Here is a little about where the various parts came from:

Continuing the starchitecture desctuctication kick I had this image of a fire at Zaha Hadid's Opera House in Guangzhou.

This was combined with some beautiful open trusses that used to be the view out the studio window. This has since been roofed over unfortunately but I heard that the developer who bought the property intended to flip it and had already poured foundations for a 12 story luxury condo building here. I should count my blessings since it was not approved, as this whole Greenpoint Pencil Factory complex is landmarked. Too bad the "Pencil Factory Lofts" was approved which eliminated my view of the river with it's sample-color-swatch-board-of-brick design. Genius. They must be having funding troubles with the economic meltdown as what was originally a frantic pace has slowed to single CMU blocks being raised by rope and pully one at a time.

Rounding out this collage was a part of a previous collage i made to illustrate an essay for Marco Frascari. The 'building' on the water is a drawer of prosthetic eyeballs and the background is a wiring schematic for a Commodore 64.

This drawing was part of a series I made while living in Pittsburgh. The '02' was from a spanish-word-a-day calendar but I had crossed out the word so I evidently didn't learn anything.

Brouwerij Lane Posters

Master Printer Chris P. also works at Brouwerij Lane across the street and has designed and printed a few posters for their events. It takes more effort than just pushing 'Print' but a hand printed poster is something you wouldn't mind keeping for a while.


(That's Lee helping out.)

The sexiest shirts ever made

If you meant 'literally-how-to-do-it' sexy.

Published in Blog

Master Blender Chris P. sports a custom hairy meatball shirt.

A tricky print but a fun challenge as each shirt is slightly different. The water based inks have a metallic binder added and a clear discharge underbase keeps everything super soft. Shirt design by Studio Mercury and printed on Alternative Apparel Organic.
