Name: Joey Fisher of Good Times Creative
Where do you live? Tempe, Arizona
Why do you create?
I just always have, I suppose. The list of things I wanted to be when I grew follows in this order: mermaid, baker, actress, singer, dancer, photographer, National Geographic reporter, graphic designer. I never imagined a career where I didn’t create something. It’s just a part of me.
How do you bring art into your everyday?
I cook every day. When it’s dinner time, I look through my pantry and fridge to see what tasty meal I can come up with. I try to sketch every day too, but you know, life happens.
What gets you super excited about life?
Eating. But also, I love inviting my friends over and sharing a meal over a bottle of wine.
Do you have a favorite artist? If so, who and why?
I don’t really have a favorite, but someone who comes to mind is a photographer named Sally Mann. Her portraits hold so much emotion and I think that is difficult to do.
What’s your favorite place to get inspired?
The woods. My partner and I love to go camping and it really clears my head.
What inspired the design for your Standard Wax Label?
Coziness! The weather is cooling down. Every day I want to put on my sweatpants and comfy socks, curl up under a blanket with some spicy ramen, my cats and binge some TV.
What’s something unique about your work that people won’t see anywhere else?
I like to bring humor into my work. I want people to go to my shop and chuckle at my products and think “I have a friend who would love this.”
Every time I go somewhere new, it’s my favorite city. But right now, I would have to say Denver. It’s beautiful and really fun. I also had these truffle potato chips that have ruined every other potato chip for me.
Golden Wok on Tatum and Cactus. I have spent every birthday there for the last 20 years.
The Lourve. The amount of history there is insane. Not to mention how crazy cool the building looks.
