For the second time in two years Deadgood have teamed up with leading British illustrator Jon Burgerman, this time to create the ‘Doodle Rug’ in which Jon’s distinctive doodle scrawls have been transformed into this bold and distinctive product.
The new rug was unveiled at Design Junction last week. It measures 2500mm x 1500mm and is made of 100% hand-tufted wool.
In an interview with Breaks of 10, Jon refers to the rug as “fuzzy and warm”. He further states:
It’s great to make works that people will hang on their walls but it’s just as cool to have stuff people can walk all over or park their bottoms on.
There you have it! Pick up a Doodle Rug (and then put it down and park your “bottom” on it) here now for £1487 or ~$2,312 USD.
It’s getting difficult to maintain Doodlesplatter on my own, but when I saw these, I knew I’d have to find some time. Somewhat unbelievably, there are no other Jon Burgerman socks in the artkive! Clearly that had to be remedied, so Jon partnered up with Sock It To Me to produce a pair of doodled socks in women’s and men’s styles. Each pair costs an affordable $9. Check out the rest of their funky foot-enhancers here.
After nearly two years, Jon makes a triumphant return to sprucing up your sofa. With doodled cushions last seen here, Jon is now working with ClickForArt on a new range of pillows. Lovingly titled Trample and Scrum, the cushions are approximately 46×46cm / 18×18″, constructed of super-soft faux suede and printed with non-toxic waterbased inks. The pillows are printed with a graphic on one side and a plain black back. They feature a feather-filled inner. Only 250 of each pillow have been printed. They will be delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Each cushion is currently available and costs £39 or ~ $60 at Burgerplex.
Oh, but that’s not all. I clicked over to ClickForArt and saw some exciting teasers. I’ve seen the quality of their merch through US stockist, Neon Monster, and it’s really quite impressive. From this ad I snagged off the CFA site, it looks like we may be seeing another pillow, a zippered (iPad?) case and an eye mask.
Here’s a bit about Click For Art from their website if you’re not yet familiar with their products: Read the rest of this entry »
Jon’s current Brain Drain solo show features some fresh fabric collaborations. These scarves were done in conjunction with Lin Fashions. You can see a few more of the scarves on Jon’s site (8th picture down) here.
Jon’s second solo exhibit in Beijing, China, Economies of Scale, opened October 25th at Deshan Art Space. Luckily, it will be on display through February 2010. The show includes a giant muradoodle and large, colorful paintings on paper and fabric. Pieces are priced between ￡3000-￡5000. Click here and here for more images, and email kyq96573 [at] 126.com for availability. Sorry this one’s a little late! Full queue here at Doodlesplatter Laboratories. Check back daily!
I am stupid -jealous of this rug Jon designed for Music Sales. The whimsical floor covering matches nicely with the muradoodle he did there this summer. More practical textiles, please! Shower curtains?
Since writing about this gigantic Pens Are My Friends fabric print, I’ve wondered how luxuriously Jon’s doodles would translate to textiles. I still haven’t had the opportunity to find out first-hand, but two additional rare fabric prints from the Because I Can’t Sit Still show recently popped up over at Burgerplex. Full Moon Blue and Full Moon Red are both 33×46″ digital prints on fabric, editions of one each. They come with metal hanging rods for just under $300 USD. Surprising myself with a deviation from my typical color prefs, but loving the red!
This is another great belt from the Yummy Industries folks who made Jon’s last belt. The Burgerland Woven belt was a tad pink for my taste, so this darker Little Best Friends belt makes me feel suitably macho wearing doodles above my groin. You can currently get one direct from Jon here. If you scroll to the bottom of his post, you’ll find this: “A note from an American belt owner called Jeremy “for non-UK buyers, lay off the carbs if you wear bigger than size 34 pants.”
Remember Steve’s sermon on the uselessness of pillows on Coupling? If your girlfriend insists on couch cushions, make a case for this one by Jon for NINETEENSEVENTYTHREE. It measures 500 x 500mm and is digitally printed onto 100% cotton. The doodles are a blue and grey colorway for £40.00 per cushion.
Because I Can’t Sit Still was Jon’s second solo show in London and it continues the work of the August Anserine Apparitions show in Hamburg. The work featured included Anxiety Wall: a sprawling installation of ink drawings wallpapering the entire back of the gallery space (later sold off to fans), sculptural pieces, new large scale fabric prints and the showcase of his monograph Pens Are My Friends book published by IdN. This show ran from October 20th to November 1st 2008 at Coningsby Gallery.
