ARTOPIA is Back!

One of the most-blogged-about events for this week in Dallas has to be the Dallas Observer’s 2nd annual ARTOPIA. This is an exciting time for local artists and The Good Child.

Last year at ARTOPIA, to launch The Good Child brand I gave away the very first shirt in the line of styles to come – Good Logo. I also witnessed Fur Face Boy conquer in the t-shirt battle against Decade Clothing (love you, Sobies), met the coolest print-makers in town (Magnificent Beard), and stuffed my face with complimentary food and drinks. If you were in attendance, you might have snagged some free stickers or a shirt from me!

Although I am not a participating artist, I will be there having a blast and handing these out:

If you want one, just approach me in a non-creepy manner and say, “What’s Good?!” And, who knows…maybe I’ll have a few tees to hand out, too.

I can’t wait to meet new people, mingle with my current friends & business partners, and see what Fur Face Boy & Sleepy Dan have in store for the t-shirt battle! Good luck, guys!

If live art, music, fashion, vinyl toys, and complimentary grub excites you, purchase tickets, here. Or, if you’re up to the challenge…find the 5 Dallas Observer newsstands decorated by local artists, photograph them, and submit here to win free VIP passes. Here’s the map to help you out.

Thank you and see you out there!

UPDATE! Shoutout to my friend @Queenpish on Twitter for sharing this:

“Just wanted to let you know you can use the code “youplus” to get 25% off the regular ticket price. Not too shabby.”

Small Business Saturday!

Today is Small Business Saturday! On one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year in the USA, remember to shop local and independent. The independent brands and shops work hard to add attention to detail, enhance their relationships with their customers, and keep it simple without gimmicks.

In honor of the holiday,  you can use the code GOODPOST for free shipping on your entire order when you check-out in The Good Child shop .

Thank you, enjoy, and happy shopping!

Good Thanks


Early this Black Friday morning, stay warm at home and snag The Good Child by GoodWoodNYC black pendant. The carved pendant is on a 30″ wooden chain and is engraved on both sides. This goody is limited to an exclusive run of 15.

If you keep up with me on Twitter and/or Facebook, be on the lookout for rad discount codes all day Friday, too!

Happy Birthday, Dad

Today, the man who taught me how to take (and tell) a joke, play defense, negotiate, fly fish, and use the aperture setting is celebrating his birthday.

Happy birthday, Dad. Cheers and all of my love.
