Pics: Wonderful Weekend Recap

The Dowdy Wagon went to Good 2 Go Taco and Cultivar Coffee this weekend, and it was mega awesome. As always, we meet some kick ass folks and had a bunch of fun!

So, we're taking our little break to let the Texas summer heat wear down and to hit up the studio and get to working on some new goodies. Have no fear, we'll be back in action very soon. In late August and Early September we're hitting the road and stopping in Oklahoma and then Seattle, but when we get back, we'll have a bunch of new Dallas dates for the Dowdy Studio Wagon. See ya soon!

Let's get cozy

We've made a new fat batch of our silkscreened pillows! Each of these squeezy cozy pillows is printed by Dylan, and sewn by Pamela, and hand stuffed to maximum cozy delight. The graphics on the pillows are all our original hand drawn illustrations. 

We'll have all these square head rests and more this weekend at Good 2 Go Taco where we'll have the Dowdy Studio Wagon shop open for your shopping delight. Come on by, say hello, and get your shop on.

Images from last weekend

We took a little break last weekend and decided to venture out to the middle of nowhere, TX to explore country life at our friend's ranch house. We packed up our coolers and a bunch of friends and drove and drove until we got there. Here's just a quick visual of some of the pretty things we saw on our way. 

 some great Texas landscapes 

a small town that looked like it could be abandoned

At the ranch house we had a special surprise waiting for all our buddies. We made some fun camp tees to commemorate the weekend. It actually helped it feel like a real life summer camp. We made up a camp song and even came up with talents that we planned on showcasing at our end of camp talent show. We never actually had a talent show, because after all the adventures we were too tired and sunburned to do anything, but we still had a roaring good time.

Now we're back in town, and looking forward to this weekend, when we'll have the Dowdy Studio Wagon at Good 2 Go Taco in Dallas all weekend. This is a special weekend, because it will be our last Dallas weekend of the summer. We're just taking a little summer break to get in the studio and get ready for the fall. We're looking forward to new items, cooler weather and tons of fun!!

Awesome Weekend Recap

Saturday, we wagoned on over to the White Rock Local Market at the Green Spot in East Dallas. There had to be at least 35 vendors selling everything from local produce, homemade cookies and sweets, shrimp,  art and crafts. We met lots of great people who came in and out of the Dowdy Wagon. We also took a little stroll around the market and met the makers behind Red Ranger Ray Guns and Will Ninja. We suggest you go check them out, because them kiddos are cool. 

Sunday, the Wagon arrived at Good 2 Go Taco and we saw their neighbors, Goodfreind, setting up for their big patio party. They pulled out reclaimed church pews for people to sit, and gave out free beer and wine, a sampling of their menu. Hundreds of people came out Sunday to check out the new place and meet up with friends and make new ones. We certainly enjoyed it and cannot wait until this place opens for reals!

Oh OH! And we also brought our new design, Drink Local. Drink Local is actually a redesign of a tee we made for an event in Bishop Arts District called Brew Riot (much fun). We decided to redesign it, so that all people could support their local brewers and makers of drinks. We don't have it online in our Shop quite yet, but we're bringing these bad boys with us in the Dowdy Wagon for now. 

Our other new design, the Cheif Lion, came with us this weekend too. We'd love you to meet them both over at in our Dowdy Wagon at  Bolsa Cafe in Oak Cliff next weekend. Join us for some fun, yum, and awesome handmade shopping.

Getting ready for a patio party!

Yah that's right, we're gearing up for a good times patio party that every patio will be talking about into next summer. We're talking about the good people over at Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House's pre-opening patio party. We'll be out in the Dowdy Studio Wagon this Sunday in front of Good 2 Go Tacos and Goodfriend for an all day Wagon extravaganza! 

We first were introduced to Goodfriend when we took the Dowdy Wagon over to Good 2 Go Tacos for the first time. We saw this vacant boarded up space next to them with some permits and notices hanging on the doors. We were instantly curious as to who G2G's new neighbors were going to be. 

We found out that it was going to be a bar named Goodfriend! We were instantly excited and immediately began stalking...I mean following them on their facebook page and watching the transformation. They are still far from finished with the renovations, but their patio is in need of a good party, so why not invite everyone out for some good times and free beers!

So here's the Goodfriend patio party scoop:
where: 1154 Peavy Rd, Dallas
when: Sunday, July 10th, 2-6pm 
bring: You + friends + summer thirst

Random: Once upon a time...


So....sometimes you just have to make little animations. This once is about a stolen purple Beetle and two ice cream's fleeing the scene near a large coffee factory. Don't worry the car was returned to it's owner and the coffee was all drank by me!

Do you have something to add to the story? Alternate ending? Plot twist? Post your version in the comments. We might just share the best ones.
