Whether collaborating with brands, artists or musicians, we find that everything is better when there is a history behind it. ambsn creative director Dylan Odbert first met Sketchy Tank at a birthday party for mutual friend Jory Brigham, and the two hit it off during a game of Slosh Ball (kick ball with a ton of beer) while manning the keg at second base. After a victorious day of high fives, chugging cold ones and getting their asses kicked, the two left the party and became buds for life. This collaboration combines both Sketchy Tank's darkness with ambsn's light hearted tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. Adding ambsn's bright color way to Sketchy Tank's novel dripping skeleton breaks both designers out of their norm and puts them perfectly right back together.
