Spreading Talent

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. Continue reading

You should know well by now about the exclusive t-shirt I have been working on with the apparel brand Kill Hubris. Well, we are finally revealing the entire design! This t-shirt, The Locals, is the 1st in the Kill Hubris Art House series. This style is limited to 60 and 10 will be available through The Good Child shop. You will be able to snag yourself The Locals t-shirt this weekend.

The t-shirt features hand drawn portraits of some of North Texas’ creative force. You can see a full list of names, here. I even pixelated Fur Face Boy‘s face!

More on the inspiration for this design later this week!

Kill Hubris Art House x The Good Child: Peek Two

You might have seen a little sneak peek the other night of a very special t-shirt I am releasing with the brand Kill Hubris. As mentioned before, Kill Hubris is happy to introduce their Art House series, a series of t-shirts designed by some of Kill Hubris’ favorite artists. I am honored to be the designer behind the first exclusive releasing under the Kill Hubris Art House name. The t-shirt will be available soon, but until then…here’s another sneak peek!

This t-shirt will feature all hand drawn portraits of some familiar faces in the North Texas art scene (and some not so familiar…yet)! Can you recognize these three? That’s me on the lower left. Sam (with the hair) and Biggs of Unkommon Kolor are to my right.

Stay tuned for more news about the special release, including where the inspiration came from and when it will drop!

Co-Tee TV Has Good Thoughts

Whoa! Under my radar, Coty Gonzales reviewed The Good Child “Good Thoughts” t-shirt in episode 87 of Co-Tee TV! If you recall, at the end of August, Coty received, reviewed, and loved The Good Child goody box I sent to him. Coty loved the brand so much, he’ll be reviewing a handful of the t-shirts I sent him over the next however-long.

Here’s the video:

THANK YOU, Coty! Also, here’s an answer to Coty’s questioning about who the people are in the screen printed image: advertisement in Better Homes & Garden’s circa 1950s. The idea for “Good Thoughts” was to conjoin my side-hustle (The Good Child) and my day-job (modern-vintage apparel design) into one solid design. Looks like it was a success! Check out Coty’s full review, including photos, pros and cons, here.

You can cop a “Good Thoughts” t-shirt, here…and, because I’m feeling so Goooood now, use code GOODTHOUGHTS for free shipping on this style only!

Thanks, again!

P.S.

Don’t forget! Only 43 days left on my Kickstarter project! Ch-check it out and tell a friend to tell a friend!

Taking The Good Child to the next level!

It’s been almost a year since I created The Good Child brand and I’m ready to take you guys to a new level.

I have started a project on Kickstarter to help raise funds to begin production on the next series. I have already begun designing some cut & sew, hoodies, woven button-ups, and more.  Check out my page on Kickstarter by clicking here, or the image below.

With your contribution, you will have a chance to pick up some of the rewards I am offering through the project – just look to the right of the project page for the tiered reward system. You won’t be disappointed. Even just $1-$5 helps.

You can help in a major and free way simply by spreading the Good word; tell your friends, loved ones, post on Facebook, tweet about it, or share through your blog (if you have one)!

Unless I reach my total goal of $3,500, I will receive zero money from all of the pledges. The project will only be able to accept pledges until 5pm CDT on October 25th, 2011. After that…it’s on!

To my supporters, old and new, THANK YOU. In under a year, I have gained hundreds of you and your support has built a strong foundation for The Good Child. I am excited to give you another top-notch, premium series to wear for years to come.
