Small founds from the ground. We have experimented with them for some time now, and here is a series of new screen prints were we have organized the parts into faces. We call them Portraits, available in the jollygoodshop
The sea has always had a special place in our hearts.
This print is a kind of statement but it also open up to various reflections. Hopefully it will remind us about the environmental situation in our seas and open up for interesting conversations.
We use a lot of plastic in the world, it’s very useful, but unfortunately much of it ends up in the wrong place. On the other hand there is a lot of power in nature. For example the mussels help us to take care of the overfertilization of the seas. Maybe it’s still not too late!
25% of the profit from every sold print will go to a project by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (Naturskyddsföreningen) for healthier seas.
The screen print is based on a photograph. The mussel is found on the beach at Mellbystrand, Sweden. We put some clay inside to imitate the muscle and to be able to place the plastic pearl.

“Bird” is a print based on a shadow figure on the wall. For us it’s a good reminder about that simple play can bring happiness. Actually the photo that we have processed and then used in the screen printing preparation, was taken a very long time ago. And now it have found the right form!
It is available in two sizes, the print is the same but there are more or less paper on the left and top. More info in the jollygoodshop!
Some years ago we discovered a new store in Malmö. We are not that much into shopping but this place was something more than a place for shopping. Inspiring settings, good coffee, exciting products with high environmental awareness, a place of activity and a place for rest. It’ s called Ab SMÅLAND, we have been back there many times, and now our prints are there all of December, it’s a big honor for us. And yes, they even let us screen print on the wall ; )
Long Play (or logg play) is based on a photo of a log, reminding of a classic LP record (Long Play). The growth rings have become tracks. We love the opportunity of listening to music digitally and get access to music that we did not know existed. But it’s still something special with the act of grabbing a sleeve, picking up the vinyl record and playing it. The limitations of the format is also nice in these times of limitless access to all kind of entertainment. The print are

We find a lot of inspiration both in the city and in the countryside. In a skatepark these two melt together as a “man-made landscape”.
Lately we have worked with skateparks – concrete landscapes – in our home town Malmö, a city with a generous approach to skateboarding and which has hosted several international competitions.
