Live It Up: DAL to AUS

The Good Child has been on quite the hiatus lately. Things have been moving and shuffling over here – I am now located in Austin, TX, probably the biggest change in this last year!

Still, a lot of support continues to flow from my old home base in Dallas. In particular, Plain Jane Francis (AKA Kalan Briggs) has been inspiring me lately.

Here is a new video, “Live it Up”, by Plain Jane Francis and his comrade, Tony Q, where he is hard-repping the sold out “A Child Called Good” t-shirt that was released in Series I.

Happy and active here in Austin, I still find myself missing my Dallas network quite a bit. Companies like We Are 1976, Centre and ATAMA. Galleries like The Public Trust, WAAS and Kirk Hopper. Brands like Fur Face Boy, Loyal KNG and Fresh Kaufee. Artists like Sour Grapes, Brent Ozaeta and Jeremy Biggers. Musicians like Sarah Jaffe, A.Dd+, Dustin Cavazos and Zhora. Record stores like Good Records and Bill’s. “Locker room” journalists like Central Track. Jerks like Arturo Torres (he’s not a jerk, but we call each other jerks to keep egos in check).

There’s nothing like walking around the inner city and knowing people. Shooting the sh•t with people. Having a mutual respect for friend’s artistry. Willing to teach one another and open to learn from one another. Dallas really does have something special going on in it’s artistic industries and I am proud to have been a part of that for so long.

I was just one woman with one idea and one extra bedroom in which I sat every night to write blogs, design shirts and build a brand strategy. I put myself out there and you accepted me and put faith into my brand.

Here in Austin, Plain Jane Francis recently visited and he told me to keep pushing my brand.

He was right.

As soon as he returned to Dallas, someone on the streets complimented The Good Child t-shirt he was wearing.

So, this is really just a “thank you” and an “I remember you” from my brand to anyone reading this post. I will keep pushing. And, I hope you like what comes next.

Happy Father’s Day: The Only Way to be a Good Child

dad 2

If it weren’t for him, I would have never gained the nickname, The Good Child. It was always my father’s saying. It was also my father who joked around, convinced me of the darndest things (e.g. he used to hunt dinosaurs, but I mean, look at that guy below), negotiated, and taught me all the technical things that have helped mold me into me the creative I am today.


It was always him. And, it still is him. I am forever grateful to have him in my life as an adult. I am still learning from him. I still believe his childish “lies.” I love him.


Happy Father’s Day. I love you, dad. (We all do)!

New Tees for Indie in the Big D!


This weekend (Saturday, May 25th) is Indie in the Big D, hosted by the Dallas Observer. Although by now you probably know the address, here it is: 406 S Haskell Ave, Dallas, TX

The event is FREE and runs 11am-7pm and there will be food trucks, music, and tons of independent & local vendors. Come out and support your local small businesses!

Definitely come The Good Child booth and meet my dear friend, Arturo Torres. Arturo will be running The Good Child table for the day, as I have an unexpected trip I need to take. Arturo is an incredible illustrator/painter, fellow creative, and partner in crime (crime, as in riding bikes and eating really good food). I really trust Arturo to tell The Good Child story and to mingle with my supporters. I know he “gets it” and really loves this city we work in and for.

Check out Loyal KNG’s video of Arturo, here.

Make sure when you stop by that you snag some free buttons (there’s barely any left!) and stickers to share, or, you know, hoard all to yourself in your secret free swag stash (we all have one). Don’t let Arturo scare you – take one!

Also on deck will be a NEW t-shirt release! Alexa Machine has been busy working up new designs for everyone as of late and The Good Child is also being put on the press this week. The new exclusive, “Stay Good,” will be limited to 24 tees, sizes XS-2XL (I’m listening, 2XL supporters!) in a beautiful sheer summer jersey cotton style from American Apparel.


As usual, these tees are made entirely in the USA, from design to garment to printing!

I am sad to have to miss all of you this weekend, but I am so grateful (and totally happy) that Arturo will be standing in for me. Also, thank YOU guys for continuing to support the brand.

Get out, shop indie, see you later!

In the Works for Indie in the Big D!



The days are getting closer and closer to screen printing group Alexa Machine Company’s big summer outdoor market sponsored by the Dallas Observer. The event, Indie in the Big D, will run all day (11am-7pm) on May 25th at 406 South Haskell Avenue in Dallas. It’s free, all ages, and filled with local vendor booths, food trucks, and local music.

Guess what else will be there?

A brand spanking new t-shirt from The Good Child, designed & made in the USA (with printing help from Alexa Machine, of course).
