Haiti Print Series

2015 Jul by Mike Davis

Beginning next Tuesday, July 14th, we will be making a new screenprinted art print available in our online store. Read printer Ben LaFond's story to learn more about the image above and the print:

In September of 2002, I stumbled into an estate sale in South Minneapolis. Pretty standard sale fare. Peering at the tables for potential treasures, a small plastic box caught my eye. Scribbled in pen on the top of the box was the word "Haiti". I pried it open and knew I had found something neat. Approximately 40 Kodachrome slides, each with a hand written note.
"Port Au Prince. 1954"
"Boy leaving market. 1956"...

I had to have them. I didn't know what I was going to do with them but they needed to come home with me. Upon checkout, I asked the cashier if they knew any info about the person or items I was purchasing. All they could tell me was that her name was Cornelia Malmberg, she was a school teacher, and was the first female millionaire in Minnesota. Apparently, she had invested in SuperValu Foods and struck it rich.

A little bit more research led me to discover she had left the United States in the mid-1940s to teach in the Canal Zone/Panama. Later in her life, Cornelia established a scholarship fund with the American Swedish Institute to assist students studying abroad in Sweden.

After several years buried in my accumulated piles of totally awesome stuff, the slides resurfaced. So I sez to myself..."Self, you should make some of these into screen prints!"

Beginning with this image, we intend on releasing a few of Cornelia Malmberg's Haiti photos from Ben's collection as timed edition 16 x 20" 4 color screen prints in Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper. All proceeds will be donated to Kanpe. Kanpe is committed to rebuilding villages in Haiti and working with other charity organizations to help bring Haiti out of poverty. We first heard of Kanpe through our work with Arcade Fire and thought this would be a great opportunity to give something to the Haiti community.

This pre-order will be open for one week (July 14 - 21) to determine edition size and we would love to produce as many as humanly possible. The more prints made, the more we can donate! Please help spread the word by sharing this on whatever social media platform you can!

16 x 20"
4 color screenprint on Crane 100% cotton paper

Timed edition: We will make these prints available for pre-order for one week only, Tuesday July 14th - July 21st.

$50 + shipping

Introducing the Cool Jerk tuk tuk

2015 Jul by Mike Davis

As many of you know, our own Mike Davis and his wife Mali have their own brand of beef jerky called Cool Jerk. To fit with the jerky's Southeast Asian origins, they went ahead and bought a tuk tuk. Fairly certain it's the only functioning tuk tuk on the streets of Minnesota.

It spent the first several years of its life in Thailand, being used a taxi. Something like this:

It was sourced from someone in Chattanooga TN. When it arrived in Minneapolis, it looked like this:

Mark from Chamelon Concessions, who has built a considerable amount of food trucks in the Twin Cities, took on the task of getting this thing in shape.

The back section was converted into a big storage unit for jerky and event supplies.

All painted up and ready for graphics.

There she is!

Follow Cool Jerk on Facebook and Twitter to find out where and when you can see the tuk tuk in person!
