When I first started collecting t-shirts, I was young trying to understand life as a sophomore in high school. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be involved with or writing for a website like Hide Your Arms. Andy is a true class act and I am honored to be on the roster of such talented writers. There is nothing more exciting than helping indie brands get the spotlight they deserve. As a token of gratitude, I have installed a permanent discount code for Hide Your Arms readers - HYA gets you 25% off any collaboration in the Oven Fresh Dreams store. For those of you who do not know, I am a barista and baker by trade – Oven Fresh Dreams is my online collective that intertwines my lifestyle with the stories of all the creative people I encounter.
“When I started baking (before I truly knew what I was doing), I was influenced by many creative types. This list includes Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle, Benny Gold, Mike Giant, Freegums, and a handful of other wonderful people. The artistic vision behind these artists and business owners inspire me to take O.F.D to unreachable heights. Keeping that in mind, I want to showcase the talents of the people I encounter in my journey by teaming up and releasing a series of limited collaborations. Now known as The Collaborate & Dream Series – the series focuses on printable mediums; t-shirts, posters, prints, and zines with the hopes of elevating the exposure of the artists I work with. There is nothing more important to me than helping artists tell their stories and share their gift with the world.”
Thank you all for being amazing. I hope to review more brands for Hide Your Arms for months to come and can not wait for you to read!
