Thaddeus Coates is doing it all, in style.

June 6, 2023
Presented by Paramount+ - Thaddeus Coates definitely has superpowers. For the DC-born, Brooklyn-based Fashion Institute of Technology grad, art is a safe space: a place to get in touch with himself and with the things he wants to accomplish in life.

And make no mistake, that list is impressively long. Coates is a dancer, cartoonist, plus-sized model, athlete, and artist. Honestly, there’s not much he can’t do.

The Queerty #Pride50 honoree, who goes by Hippy Potter on IG, has also been able to do some mind-blowing collaborations. The artist who knew he wanted to draw after watching “The Fairly Oddparents” now has a collaboration with Cartoon Network under his belt. And the opportunities just keep coming.
