I know the site looks pretty much the same but the core is all new and should now be easier to update, look better on mobile phones and tablets, and play nice with facebook and twitter.  If anything is broken please let me know -->  website@fleaheart.com 

We are almost positive Madonna did not steal our camera, and other updates

But she did want these bags made with her kid's shoes hanging from them, just like they would from any respectable Brooklyn power line. The pictures of her kid's shoes weren't hanging just right but we had Chris's busted Adidas which worked out.

Apologies for the lack of updates lately but we have been super super busy and are actively looking to expand our capabilities, equipment, and hire more staff. This place looked promising and with its 46' ceilings we could print extremely large T-shirts.

We've had our busiest summer to date and even threw in an earthquake and hurricane for good measure. Here's to whatever's next..

Poster Paper Printer Plotter People Eater

We recently discovered we can run 100# French Paper cover stock through our photo plotter and have been checking out what it can do. I put together this set of Pantones in Illustrator and the result is not too shabby... the ink doesn't pop like a screenprinted poster but I didn't have to burn 1,081 screens either.

Do we print newspapers? uh yes.

These were pages from Jay Z's new book that were objects of a scavenger hunt / new media campaign. Pages were placed on just about everything... pool tables, dinner plates, a punching bag, pizza boxes, the bottom of a swimming pool, fish n' chips, and lots of good ol' billboards. Kudos to whatever marketing department created this beast and convinced fans to actually go out and search for their advertisements. Check it out here --> http://bing.com/jay-z

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.

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 among tractors and forest-bound-boats was the perfect foundation for a fashion accessory line.

We started with these prints on totes:

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.

The bandannas are screen printed with clear discharge which dissolves the fabric’s dye (similar to bleaching), revealing the print in close to original base color. This results in a very natural colorway and super soft print with virtually no hand-feel whatsoever but we aren’t always able to control what color it comes out as it just does what it does, ex. red discharges to golden yellow, black goes off-white, navy goes grey, etc..,

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 an excellent testing ground for perfecting new processes. Stay tuned for more and check us out at Smith + Butler.
