Let’s Chat! with Yoshirt Creator Shantario Parks

Posted on November 02 2015

Shantario Parks has designed over 100 ridiculously great Yoshirt products. How does he do it? And what kind of reactions does he get when he goes out wearing his creativity?

 This shirt I made of my wife is my favorite of all time.

You’ve made over 100 Yoshirt designs so far. What is it about Yoshirt that compels you to keep designing with us?

I love the fact that I'm able to use the app to design and express my artistic dopeness. Yoshirt is the first shirt app I've used that lets me add creativity on top of creativity until I’ve produced somewhat of a masterpiece in my eyes.

What’s the best response someone has given you when they see you in a Yoshirt?

The best response I've ever received about a shirt was from the mother of a deceased childhood friend and classmate. She told me that the caricature design I made of her son was done very tastefully, and that it was a great way to remember him. That made the shirt just that much more special to me and  it is one of my favorites.

Where do you like to wear your Yoshirt gear?

I personally like to wear my shirts anywhere and everywhere they'll draw attention. It's pretty cool when people say, "Aye brah, that shirt is dope!" or "Yo, I need one of those. Can you make me one?"

How do you come up with your designs?

A lot of times my inspiration and creativity comes whenever I'm out on the road just driving and vibing to some music. All of a sudden, a dope idea will come to me.

What are you going to make next?

Hmm… Who knows! Lol!
