Why Alysia Montano wears a flower in her hair during every race.
Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
The flower remains Montano’s trademark even though her opponents are now world-class female middle-distance runners.
"The flower to me means strength with femininity," Montano said in June after winning the 800 at the U.S. Olympic trials. "I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong."

Some Pearl fighting from a section of ‘Gem Glow’ that I boarded. It was planned from the beginning that each of the gems fighting styles would be based on a specific dance form to reflect their personalities, so that even without speaking, we already know a little about them.

Video of the little press I posted earlier. Instead of clamps I use 2 pieces of painters tape to hinge the screen to the table, not good for multiple color registration but great for single color prints. The long piece of tape on the table is sticky side up, with three pieces of tape holding it to the table. I use this in place of spray adhesive, it holds whatever you’re printing on in place so you don’t get blurry lines from shifting. A few small pieces of tape on the table to mark the approximate placement of the vinyl (or paper, fabric, whatever). A dollop of ink, flood the screen and pull. Sorry my hand is in the way.
The hardest part is finding a small screen and getting the stencil on there. A different subject entirely.
Faultline is having a show March 15th in Oakland and I’ll have a little stack of these guys in my studio to give away, stop by or everyone will think you’re shitty.
