In the final review of the new collection from UK brand Suffoca, we take a closer look at the brand’s second collaboration with artist Dres13. The ‘Sink or Swim’ T-shirt continues the story of the two characters featured in the first collaboration, back to their old tricks.
The design features illustrations from both Boyce and Dres13, and is inspired by their shared interest in street art, in particular, wheat pasting. The tee is themed around the two independent artists themselves, fighting to stay on top of their game at all times, which is where the ‘sink or swim’ text itself comes from. I love how the illustrative styles of both of the two artists are clearly visible, yet they work together seamlessly – anyone who knows Boyce himself, and his work, will see how this is a perfect reflection of his creative endeavors.
