Notable Artist In the Field: Fresh Melt Water
Artist's Website: Freshmeltwater.com
Just graduated? Like rap lyrics? Into weed? Start a t-shirt company, duh. Philadelphia's Fresh Melt Water's beginnings weren't exactly that, but close. Brooks Bell and Joey Gothelf cut their teeth in a screen print shop before launching their own imprint (after getting fired). We don't want to make it seem like this job is easy, but if you're into Complex and you know a thing or two about style, this is a no-brainer for the recent graduate with an art degree burning a hole in his pocket.
