Artists’ designs from left to right: Nathan Kostechko, Jesse Brown and David Cook aka “Bonethrower”

Nathan Kostechko:

Southern California native and tattoo artist, Nathan Kostechko, brought his tattoo influence to the Stance threads with a unique burning palm tree design as the first capsule combo to the Dropout Club Intl and Stance collection. Kostechko was inspired to mold his own creativity, turning his art into something that is noticed both on and off the skin.

Jesse Brown:

Jesse Brown, Seattle based multidisciplinary visual artist added his unique touch to the Dropout Club Intl and Stance collection with an array of illustrations including roses, water droplets, top hats and palm trees to highlight his exploration for geometric forms, pattern, typography, shape and repetition.

David Cook aka “Bonethrower”

Best known for his unique style and take on mysticism and memento mori, David Cook aka “Bonethrower” takes his immersive background in psychedelic art to the Dropout Club Intl and Stance capsule with his vibrant and mischievous design.

To spotlight the creative artistry and provide branding credit, each artist is labeled on the toes of their designed sock while Dropout Club Intl is labeled on the bottom. Each pair of socks is also packaged with artist and branding bios highlighting each of their unique backgrounds and origins of inspiration.

The Dropout Club Intl and Stance sock collection is a Zumiez exclusive for Back-To-School 2017 and will be released globally for the 2017 holiday season.
