Jollygoodfellow + HearteartH

We have made some prints in cooperation with Marie-Louise Hellgren, Heartearth. They were shown at Tent London 2017.

Lilla-Snåland-P1100532_1K

This is the stool Lilla Snåland, made of leftovers from the classic chair Lilla Åland, together with our interpretation/screenprint on the wall.

The triangels on the right is the raw material for Lilla Snåland (and the parts that are removed in the production of Lilla Åland).

 

The print will be available in the jollygoodshop soon, we are just wating for Marie-Louise to come and sign them first : )

 

Steam-I-P1100557K

As Marie-Louise have designed lots of nice tea cups during the years and showed her newest at Tent London we stareted to think about steam. We worked in two days trying to catch steam,  it was difficult but fun. Finally we transformed it to a screenprint as well, this is Steam!

Finland 100 years!

 

Jollygoodfellow-sauna-vihta-Formex2017-P1090762

This is Sauna Vihta, our tribute to Finland who celebrate 100 years of independence.

 

 

Vihta-40x50-crop-outline-P1090839

For us Finland is sauna. Every summer when we are on our way to the cottage on the Finnish countryside we cross our fingers and hope that the sauna will be intact and ready for some fire. But it’s important to heat slow and during the waiting it’s good to make a sauna vihta!

Size: 40 x 50 cm
Paper: Munken Pure 240g

Edition: 100

Available in the jollygoodshop!

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.

Unique Fellows

In a way the idea of printmaking is to get more of the same, but we were curious about working on the basis of happy accidents!

So we started the project: Unique Fellows!

We dig into the piles of proofs, select a few favorites and some of them inspire us to new experiments. Every single one is photographed and presented separately and gets its own number.

You find them in our jollygoodshop, some of them are already sold but be patient, more is coming.

Jolly Good Lördag – Premier!

This spring we have decided to open up the studio some more, we call it Jolly Good Lördag.  For us it’s a chance to let our local friends and customers come and see some more of what we do and how screen printing works, buy something from us without shipping cost, or just drink coffee with us : )  Here is some pictures from the first #jollygoodlördag which had the theme “skate”.

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”.

This time we are using a heavier off-white (or cream shade) paper from the Swedish paper mill Munken. It feels and looks very nice.

Batterie

 

Bild_process_batteri

We have thought about printing drums for a long time. In the beginning the idea was to make a print of a drum kit set up ready to play. And we were looking for a drummer with the right attitude and the perfect drums. But after a while we just took our own drums and started to try out. For us the best way was to put them in a pile and we were really exited!

After some calls we got access to a rehearsal hall with a huge collection of vintage drums. We looked and picked drums from the shelves like kids in a toy store. But then we fell in love with this little kit standing by the entrance.

A tower of vintage drums in a variety of brands (which you can see on the drum lugs if you are a drum nerd like us).
