This year has been a little different for The Good Child. Year One was all about building a foundation – thanks to you guys and, in return, my own determination. Year Two seems to be more about growing the brand as a full creative force. There was the KH Art House design, the contributing to Hide Your Arms blog, and then there was this:
When Sarah Jaffe came to me looking for a t-shirt for her new and most recognized album, The Body Wins, I was more than flattered. Not yet knowing exactly what the album title meant to Jaffe, I was instantly drawn to my collection of vintage family photographs. Add to it that Jaffe was a Good Child customer and loved the Respect Your Elders tee, and right away we knew the direction for the design. Say hello to Puerto Rico 1972.
Jaffe picked the shirt body for the design and I love the overall vintage feeling behind the finished product. The album title really seems to work with the vibe in this image and it’s great that it was released during the warmer weather.
Thank you to everyone who has, so far, made this t-shirt a place in their home. (I know they sold out of small and medium sizes from the run available at the Dallas, TX show last night).
Mostly though, thank you to Sarah. I look forward to seeing where your journey takes you, far into the future….and, thank you to YOU guys for fully supporting The Good Child and myself – simply as a local creative doing my thing, no matter the outlet.
