Sometimes we’re so busy creating in our own lil’ bubble that we lose track of our reach but every time we’re acknowledged or receive an int’l sale it’s a humbling reminder that we’re on the right track. Thank you again to everyone who supported TEM throughout our journey. The best has yet to come!

#tbt to that time we learned the process of letter-pressing with our friend and longtime supporter Madeleine of #PanoramaPress - we collaborated on some custom TEM notebooks.

This was a very pleasant surprise to receive in our mailbox today! We finally got a physical copy of the Renegade Collective Magazine (@collectivehub) we were featured in for February! They wrote an awesome 4 page spread on us and our vision for TEM. Thank you again to @jesswells + @tracialexis for making it all happen - you both are extremely awesome! 🙏


This issue of Renegade Collective (@collectivehub) was initially on shelves exclusively in AU and should be available to the rest of the world very soon.

My boy @therealajfresh and I have seen and experienced A LOT together since 10th/11th grade, and not much has changed. My jeans are still tight (literally and figuratively) and you still couldn’t pay him to wear anything skinny-fit 😂 But in all seriousness, it’s good to see us both on the right track and pursuing our dreams. Thanks for stopping by and visiting the kid today bruh - nothing but love for you man. Let’s keep winning ✊
