Supreme and Daniel Johnston Continue One of Fashion’s Most Unlikely Collabs

The late Daniel Johnston, who passed away last September at the age of 58, was a brilliant artist with a troubled mind. He was also a lead candidate for least likely Supreme collaborator. And yet, perhaps because that’s exactly the sort of collaborator Supreme seeks out, he became one back in 2012, when he lent some of his signature drawings of Captain America to a capsule collection of t-shirts. Now Supreme is back with a bigger collection, featuring more images from the wild world of Johnston’s imagination on workwear, beanies, hoodies, et cetera.

Johnston is best known as the beloved cult musician who built a devoted following by hawking his amateurish tapes while working at an Austin McDonalds in the 80s.

I also have mild rosacea, so that was another key factor in buckling down

What inspired you to start your business?

After the last recession, I was living in New York, helping run the digital media team at Atlantic Records, and feeling very overworked and under-inspired. What did inspire me was A) the thriving contemporary-art scene and B) the indie (what we used to call “hipster”) scene in Brooklyn, where it seemed like everyone I knew was starting their own small business: pickling eggplants, screenprinting, making artisanal whiskey.

I knew I was ready to leave the corporate world and start my own business, and with my background in web development, digital marketing, and e-commerce, a website seemed like the ideal platform. I was so moved and excited by the new creative work I was seeing from artists like Dash Snow, José Parlá, Chris Johanson, but the art world seemed so rarefied and unapproachable, I had no idea how to enter it. But fashion. Fashion
