Build up! Build out!

28 Mar

The ocelots have put down the brooms and picked up the hammers and build out has begun…..oooh but your dark room is so bright…the better to see you with

sure one wall does not a dark room make, but imagine another wall and an exposure unit and a coating table and the warm blue-black glow of the light source, perhaps a quiet humming as the ballasts do their job turning electricity into magic and then sending it through tubes and out into the micro-sphere and then compelling itself to burn another screen…can you imagine that? One of the things we bandied back and forth like an Olympic badminton shuttlecock was how big should the dark room be? you want to be able to move around without bumping(smashing) into things in the dark(relative)…if my calculations are correct we could accommodate an 80’s era Andy Warhol with a portable colour television and the third largest pear on record and still have room to burn a screen…

blessed are the print makers

Even in the midst of moving……we print!

“Let’s print our wedding invitations, Honey!”                                                                                      Ocelot helps an innocent young couple get their hands right into the thick and dirty of DIY wedding preparation.

Like two pebbles in the depths of Superior....the invites are richly colored and awesome.

Busines as Usual with AMP

11 Feb

That is, business as the way we dream it.. Oh, yes. Allied Media Project has started their third season of Detroit Future Media program, training Detroit artists, entrepreneurs and educators in digital media skills. We are proud to be a part of their entrepreneurship program, making connections, delving into the whys and hows of our ideal socially and environmentally conscious business model, looking for our dream of being a sustainable, supportive, creative and all the way around awesome  collective that can support itself and become a strong supportive presence in our community.


We keep our eyes on March as our move in month!

Ocelot Update

28 Jan

Hi Friends, Happy New Year, even if a bit late into the month!  We have been quiet around here since the close of the holidays.  It has been very restful and reflective.  But now we are back at it!  So here is a little update on what is happening!

Image•   construction is still ongoing in our physical location, so we haven’t moved yet
• we hope to be in the space and open in the spring!
• we are still working print jobs in the mean time, so if you have any printing needs, let us know
• two of the Ocelots are enrolled in Detroit Future Media classes, to benefit the shop
• we are working out all the details of membership and how the shop will operate so that we can hit the ground running!

If you have any questions, thoughts or interest send us an email at ocelotps (at)
