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”.

What is a screenprint?

Most of our products are screenprinted by hand, but maybe you wonder how it works…..

A screen print (or silk-screen) is a print where the ink is forced through a mesh (screen) using a rubber squeegee. Jollygoodfellow usually start with one or more photographs which is adjusted and rasterized in the computer. Sometimes with some added hand-drawing. The image is transferred to a transparent film and exposed on a screen which is prepared with photo emulsion. And when the screen is rinsed and dry it’s time to start printing in the jollygoodfellow garage printshop!

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.

Allemansrätten

 

The freedom to roam, or everyman’s right (Allemansrätten)  is the general public’s right to access certain public or privately owned land for recreation and exercise. The right is sometimes called the right of public access to the wilderness or the right to roam. (Wikipedia)  This print is our celebration to and reminder of Allemansrätten!

The poster is screen printed by hand in black and white on brownish paper. The paper is made out of recycled paper and rests from paper production (“kvistmassa”) so the look of the paper vary and can change color slightly . Also available on our standard paper Munken Pure (off white) were the text is printed in grey. You can have a look at it in the shop.

Slightly Imperfect

 

Slightly-Imperfect- JGF - 102315_1(k)

The pile of irregular tote bags have grown big, so we were thinking of something to do with them. Maybe turn them into pillow cases? But then we thought of an old print idea that has been in the drawer (or sketch book) for many years.

Slightly-Imperfect_marks

We have collected small marks for “irregular quality” during the years. The first one’s were found on cheap t-shirts and underwear bought in New York in the 1990’s.

Now we have let them be the main motif on some bags!

The expression ”slightly imperfect” is kind of funny. It sounds humble but at the same time says ”almost perfect”. Like the swedish expression ”Obetydliga skönhetsfel kan förekomma” which means something like ”insignificant beauty imperfections might occur”. And who doesn’t feel like that at times?
