SUAS: Where was the idea for the creation of PYSKO CLOTHING born from?
JD: The idea for Psyko came when I was home trying to figure out what I can do with my all of my drawings and digital images. It seems that the name Psyko fitted well after every person I would show my drawings to apparently thought they were a bit too psychotic. So, I just rolled with it and this was the summer of 2006. I also have always been a big fan of Jeremy Beightol artwork and his look of things so without any hesitation I immediately approached him via Myspace.
SUAS: Jeremy is an amazing artists so it’s safe to say that we will be seeing some of his designs in your upcoming line?
JD: Yes, Jeremy Beightol has been a big part of the brand look and esthetic. Me and Jeremy will pitch ideas back forth every week. He has been on board since 2009 and has been pumping out his work such as the Hunted tee, No Love tee, Luna tee and the brands logo. So, you will def see more his amazing drawings and compositions in the future.
SUAS: On the topic of your art and Mr. Beightol¹s designs what is the thought process behind the unique designs that your clothing displays?
JD: This is one of the toughest things that we do here. What we do is we pick two themes of things we like to discuss. We talk about them for few days to research ideas for inspiration and then we draw things out. After about 7 drawings we pick out the 4 best that fit in to the themes. Everything is made in-house from drawings to printing. I do most of the printing in my shop and package everything so it is a true hands-on skater owned company.
