Students who do cool things: Danny Sobor ’15, artist and creator of Milk Supply Co.

Milk

Danny Sobor ’15 has pioneered several art ventures on campus. But for his 21st birthday he decided to go above and beyond anything he’s done in the past by founding a new company, Milk Supply Co. We picked his brain on this unique new clothing line, whose first collection just dropped this Thursday.

BlogDailyHerald: What exactly is Milk Supply Co.?

Danny Sobor ’15: Milk Supply Co. is a psychedelic street wear and design company, Providence-based but Chicago-inspired. It’s really based on the people and experiences I grew up with for the first 18 years of my life. I also came back home for the first time in two years this summer and being back home really made me reevaluate things and this was me looking back on where I grew up and trying to visually represent it. Another inspiration was a good friend of mine, Miles, who died after a five-year bout with brain cancer last January. His passing inspired me to do something with my time.

BlogDH: You said that it was a “psychedelic company,” could you elaborate more on that?

Danny: [Laughs] Sorry mom. The PC version is that it is inspired by conscious alteration. Being the same person, but you know seeing the world a little differently. We used to trip and just experience the city [Chicago] and walk around the city and I think that has heavily influenced the way I draw. The patterns I draw I feel like I’ve seen tripping, and then see them continually coming around in the world. In Native American art, in Japanese art, and other forms.
