Jozik business cards

Several times, when travelling or organizing gigs, we've been to a situation where we meet some people who want to collaborate with us, share something, send demos or just contact us afterwards for some reason. And it always goes like, "Yeah, there's our e-mail on the back of that CD we gave you" or "There's a link to our website on..." or in the worst case we don't even exchange details at all. So i thought it would be nice to make some kind of business cards for Jozik (i don't really like the expression "business card" in our case cause it sounds like it's some serious big business we keep :) )

So i went to Askarelli and bought some nice textured craft paper

Then i printed Jozik contact details on the white side of the paper and cut the cards out

They're cute and feel a bit like they're made out of wallpaper :)

I went to Kiasma today to check out the ongoing exhibition. On my way out i hopped in the Kiasma Shop and found something i had to get for myself:

It's a small book with instructions on how to make origami as well as a bunch of paper with different patterns for making them. 

The patterns are so pretty, i almost feel like hanging them on my walls!

I've been wanting to learn how to do origami for a long time, now it's time to get my hands on them :)

It's been a month since we got back from Murmansk, but i'd still like to share couple of photos and some fun news.

The sceneries on our way through Finnish Lapland were beautiful:

And along with all the Xmas presents i finally got dreadlocks!!

We had to do some dreadlock posing with my little auntie: 

And of course it's been fun to spend time with my lovely family and friends.

Kutomo / Bedroom Bear split and a new site for Jozik

Ok, let's say I had a month holiday from blogging...

January has been very lazy and relaxed in the beginning and very busy in the end. But i am back to my blog now and first of all i would like to present a new release on Jozik records. It is a split cassette of Finland's Kutomo and Russia's Bedroom Bear:

This time the artwork has been done by Diana Vishnevskaya, an excellent artist from St. Petersburg. Check her drawings and photography here:

I am amazed by the whole release. The package is super stylish and the music is beautiful. We think it's the best release on Jozik so far.

You can find more details about the cassette on our new site. That's actually another thing i wanted to share.

One day Myspace got so ugly, i could not believe it. So i tried to come up with something i could make fast (i am still planning to make an actual website, but it will take me lots of time). So i decided to make a Jozik site right here, on Blogger, cause i am so used to it.

One evening was enough for it, and i am quite happy with the result. It looks pretty and actually has all the functions we need.
