Photo yo'self at the Girlie Show!!

The Girlie Show was this past weekend, and we asked you to be a photographer for the show. We hung 2 disposable cameras in our booth with little signs on them telling people to take their pics. We let the 2 cameras run free in the hands of whoever found them, and gave all art direction and photography powers to those who held the cameras.

We were very antsy to get the pics developed, and after the longest hour of life, we did! So here are some below. We only had 2 pics that didn't turn out, but I'm pretty sure those were test shots we took, before we found the flash button. I swear they hide those things!

Fall all over fall with Dowdy Studio, you klutz

Hey loves! We're getting a little cooler outside! While not yet freezing, it's time to get wrapped up in some long sleeves and scarves so you can stumble and fall all over fall. Weee! *jumps into a heap of leaves*

We made these for you:

 Foxy Fox - on a rusty orange ladies slouchy sweatshirt will keep you covered and cute!
Pamela's Scandinavian heritage and love nature brought this little Foxy Fox to life. His fluffy tail is adorned with little flowers that we imagine he's been frolicking in all day. 
 Shave the Whales - on a unisex style long sleeve jersey hoodie. 
We wondered what would happen to a pirate who has been lost at sea for centuries. He'd probably become one with his surroundings and wear a ship for a hat, his hair would turn to rocky waves, his beard infested with whales and a steering wheel for a chin.

To top off any long sleeve Dowdy look, we've created these jersey printed cowl scarves. They are limited edition and come in a variety of prints and colors. Climb on into the Dowdy Studio Wagon to see the whole gang.

We had a blast at the Studio Party! We're so glad so many friends and supporters came out to help us party down and celebrate our two newest designs with a glass of boozy beverage and a whole lotta fun.

We also love having a joint party with our neighbor, Jonathon of Napkin Art Studios. Jonathan came to our grand opening studio party, and loved the space so much that he moved his poster printing and design shop into the studio space next door. So this party was technically his first grand opening party.

There was so much mingling and fun being had, that we forgot to take many pics  (this tends to be a reoccurring theme with us), but here's a few images we snapped of the night. We were also very fortunate to have Arianna from Lavander + Pink stop by with her friends and snap a couple pics for a recap on her blog. Arianna also did a beautiful recap of the Dallas Flea, check it out.

 The MerJack photo cut out was ready to greet everyone at the door. 

 Dowdy Studio wall. Pamela created a feature for our two newest designs out of masking tape alone.

Our clipboard print wall. The image is horribly lit, but we spray painted sections of the clipboards with gold, yellow and teal to make some interesting frames for the prints.

 The Dowdy Studio Wagon!! And in the corner, our Mermaid cut out.

Looking good Mer-People!!

Our awesome friends Preston and Bryan kept the local Rahr & Sons beer flowing, and partied right along with everyone. Thanks barkeeps!

 And party times began! 

Thanks so much for coming out to see our new artwork and party! We love you guys!!

Weekend recap in pix

Saturday morning started out at the White Rock Local Market. Since we pulled double events on Saturday, we went full blown pop-up tent for the market. Without the Wagon we took up less space, so we invited Dad Dowdy to bring out some of his furniture pieces to show off. Dad Dowdy has been getting ready for the Dallas Flea this upcoming weekend, so we thought this market would be a great chance for him to show off a few new pieces.

Just a shot of our display that Dylan built. The Dowdy Studio sign was made the night before, very last minute, but we think it turned out pretty cool. We may have to use it again.

Immediately after the White Rock Market, the Untapped Festival in West Dallas kicked off. The whole fest was jam-packed with great bands, lots of beer, awesome food trucks and so much fun. We heard the fest was sold out even before doors opened, so if you're thinking of going to this next time, buy them tickets whenever they go up for sale. Seriously, you don't want to miss it.

 From the steps of the Wagon, we got to watch the Antlers, the Givers and Akron/Family do their thing. No complaints at all.

 Night time pic. My phone camera is totally weak mode. Sorry for the blursville pic.

 On Monday we found Pamela in in Dallas Observer's People of Untapped slideshow. Hi Pamela!

That's all the pics we have until this weekend. So come see us at the Dallas Flea at South Side on Lamar on Saturday. We'll have the Wagon out front, and we can't wait to see you!
