Ride + Quote

As a little spinoff from the “Unique Fellow project” we have printed our favorite quote from Eddie Merckx in color on top of one half of the Ride XL print. We started with soft pink and then a grayish blue. We have decided to print them in very small editions (max 10 per color) as a way to keep them almost as unique as the Unique Fellows. And who knows maybe we mix and print some more colors further on. You can find these tow in the shop.

Picnic at FORMEX

This time we exhibited together with scandinaviaform at Formex. It was a very good choice since we could enjoy a little meadow, which felt so nice together with the prints.

RIDE – bike print

jollygoodfellow-Ride-70x100_P1070617_1K

Finally our new big bike print is on the wall!

Foto 2016-05-09 14 25 00

After months of watching and discussing just the two of us and with really nice bike people we decided that the bike that Eddie Merckx used for his “Hour Record” 1972 in Mexico City should be the object for our next XL bike print.  The bike is clean and nice, very close to the image that pops up in our heads when we hear the word bike. And Eddie Merckx seems to be a very nice cyclist who has continued his bike journey in a nice way.

We fell over a long essay about the mystery: which bike is the bike that Eddie actually used during the record? We started to compare the different versions and still were not sure about which of them is “the bike”  but at least we have quite good odds as we have used parts from to different bikes ; ) One of the bikes is shown at the Eddie Merckx Subway station in Brussels and we where on our way to picture it but halfway there we had to change our plans due to the awful terror acts in Brussels during Easter week 2016.

Ride in the print shop.

“Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride.”
That is a quote from Mr Merckx that we really like and the reason we gave this print the name “Ride”.

Jollygoodfellow + CLOSE by DENIM

When we started up the jollygoodfellow printshop many years ago the focus was on t-shirts. But now most of the prints are on paper (posters). Some times we miss it, but we realize that we haven’t time to do it right now.

When Petra Backlund from Close by Denim asked us if we wanted to collaborate it felt so right, especially since we share the same values (environmental friendly production and products, local production as far at it’s possible, products with long life etc). We really like their tag line “CLOSE by DENIM is brought to life from a spirit of mindful spending.”  Now the first t-shirts are launched and we are looking forward to continue the collaboration!

Världsmästarcykeln in new colours

 

Most of the time we use black paint in the printshop but it is something special with colour as well.

It’s really exciting when we stand there with the primary colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, white and black and try to concretize the idea of a colour we have in mind.

 

Here is the new colours, GREEN, BROWN and VIOLET

Världmästarcykeln Green, 64 x 46 cm, printed on Munken Pure.

Världmästarcykeln Brown, 64 x 46 cm, printed on Munken Pure.

Världmästarcykeln Violet, 64 x 46 cm, printed on Munken Pure.
