Apothicc Studios is a two-man dream team that spends their days making yours better. Handcrafted candles, apparel, knowing glances and more.
Apothicc was created by Andrew and Renato, a couple of old marrieds. They have two dogs: Janice, who basically runs the place and Judy, who’s in charge of buttons and trims. And very little else. She’s not a multitasker.
In this Q&A with queer artist Robert Alvarez, we discuss the importance of identity and representation, the challenges of finding a sense of belonging in a rapidly changing city like Austin, and the power of art to inspire.
