Styled by our very own Sabrina Sheppard, check out the very talented singer and musican Avery Sunshine reppin Graphic Tease in the We’re Cool boy beater tank. I can’t stress enough how appreciative I am to have someone like her support the movement. Thank You Avery and to everyone who’s played a part in the growth of my brand. It means a lot.
And for those of you who don’t know about Avery….WAKE UP! I posted two vids for you below. Get familiar…

First let me start by saying that this new design is NOT AT ALL a reflection on my father. Growing up I had the greatest father a kid could ever have, and still do. I consider myself lucky to have someone like him in my life. However, everyone isn’t as fortunate as I am.
This shirt was inspired by my friends Paul and J. Reu (shown below) who often speak of how their father never contributed anything to their childhood, but do it in such a hilarious way. I mean I’ve been close to tears from laughing so hard listening to them. One day I was telling my friend Sabrina one of the stories Paul and J. Reu told me about their dad and immediately after she said…..”You should make a shirt that says Dear Dad, Thanks for nothing.” It was genius! I took it back to Paul and J. Reu and they went crazy…so I got to work. After almost no time at all I had a great design ready to put into production and here it is today.
Paul and J. Reu have grown up to be very great and successful men. Paul is a dad now himself and has refused to let the absence of his father determine how he raises his two boys. J. Reu is a very talented up coming rapper who’s audience grows bigger and bigger by the day. Check him out here.
Even though I could never wear this shirt, I know that there are so many people who can relate to it. This tee is for everyone like Paul and J. Reu who came out on top and were able to rise above even with an absent father. Shoutout to you all!

Oh and with it being my birthday today, I decided to give everyone a 20% discount on their online orders until the end of the week. Just enter promo code BDAY at checkout. Offer ends Saturday, May 26th.
A couple weeks ago I got a text from one of my friends that said “Saw your t-shirt on Worldstar worn by a rapper!! Ur famous now lol” So of course I had to see for myself. The video is actually a Curren$y Jet Life Tour vlog and someone on stage, who I think might be Nesby Phips, has on the We’re Cool tee. You only see him for a quick second so if you blink you might miss it lol. I’m glad to know that people are becoming more and more receptive to the brand though. We’re definitely growing…slowly but surely.
Check me out on foyolyfe.com! I’m the first person to be featured on the “She’s Dope” segment of their website. She’s Dope is a section of the Foyolyfe site where they recognize females who are up and coming, successful, entrepreneurs, making positive impacts in their communities, etc….you know…dope stuff. Its cool that they think of me and Graphic Tease as something worth being recognized. It makes see that people on the outside looking in can see all of the hard work, time, and effort I put into my company. It motivates me to keep going. Thanks to Bryan and the Foyolyfe family for thinking of me. You can see the post here.
