ride 1819 saturday

RIDE/K2, a snowboard manufacturing company got in touch with me about using my neon artwork "Hot Dog! : Homage to my Father” on one of their snowboards for the 2018 season. The design features one of those cats you often see in Japanese restaurants with his arm waving below a hot dog...all in neon. We agreed upon a price, including the delivery of one of the snowboard to me as part of the contract. The "SATURDAY" board went on sale this Fall 2018 from RIDE and I am the proud owner of one of them!


It was announced in August that Michael Flechtner is the 2017 recipient of the Columbus College of Art & Design Alumni Award for Excellence. This award is given to a CCAD alumnus who has earned prominence as a result of outstanding professional or artistic achievement in their chosen field. President Melanie Corn said, “Your accomplishments as a neon artist certainly qualify.


A video by Eric Minh Swenson shows the making of  Radiocean and some sample tubes! Eric did a great job and it was fun working with him...he can walk on rice paper without leaving a trace!
