I love seeing you babes creating art & messages using my scrub. It makes me happy. But when I took over Sweatshop Cafe, I wanted to get extra wordy, so I enlisted the help of man-babe Timothy Goodman. He isn’t one to drink coffee but #letsbefrank: he sure knows how to write about it, and scrub with it.
What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up?
I should go for a run!
Then, what’s the first thing you do?
Hit the snooze, and never go for a run.
Recently, you decked out our Sweatshop X frank body pop up. How did you find scribbling about coffee?
On my Instagram, I have written about how the act of meeting for coffee can disguise itself as quasi-date, so I thought it would be fun to apply that writing to the pop-up.
What’s your coffee order?
Tea. I don’t drink coffee. 🙂
How did you feel about using a roller door as your canvas?
It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I want people to stumble across as they’re walking and stop. And I love the weird bends it takes on the lettering.
Hardest space you’ve worked in?
I draw at many live events & conventions, sometimes with thousands of people walking by and watching. That can be a bit intense!
If you weren’t a designer or illustrator, you’d be?
I was a house painter and wallpaper hanger for 5 years in my late teens and early 20s, so I like to think that I’m exactly where I should be now.
What has been your most interesting job to date?
frank Body of course!
And dream client yet to land?
I really want to do something for the NBA basketball league. Or large mural in Kim & Kanye’s house.
Top 3 tips for a young creative?
- Approach design as a practice, not as a profession.
- You have to make a lot of stuff before you can make stuff like yourself.
- Sharing your personal stories is a sort of activism.
You’re a man-babe. What’s your skincare routine like? Simple, I bet.
V simple! One quick wash with face soap, then maybe a little lotion.
How do you feel about putting coffee on your body?
Love this idea. If I don’t drink it, then I should definitely wear it.
I speak dirty to babes. One piece of advice for a member of the opposite sex?
Oh no, I’m not even about to answer this.
Lastly, who should I get down and dirty with next?
My girlfriend, Alyssa. Oh wait, I just did that for you.
