New shirt in. 99.34% sure its the work of Mr Horkey, but haven't seen this particular RVCA shirt before (admittedly it could be posted elsewhere in this thread and I forgot it) though the lettering is very similar but not exact to some others he has done. If someone knows definitively one way or the other chime in.

My guess is not horkey, but not 100% sure.

The reason I lean towards yes is because the lettering is very similar in style to this one, though not exact...

I suppose its possible there was a traditional/standard RVCA logo that multiple artists each had a slightly different take on, but I was never really familiar with the company until I got into Aaron's work.

Doesn't it say the artist's name inside the shirt by the label? The only RVCA shirt I have says "Aaron Horkey" below the sizing, etc. info.

No artist name on the printed label, had already checked that. Additionally the anteater shirt above does not have an artist name on the inside labeling either, just checked that one for reference.

I would guess that is a George Thompson shirt.

:clap: Not into the shirt collecting for me, but I love seeing these things, sounds like it's time for a story (i.e., the box in the closet!), now to track down one of those stickers!

I think there was a video online, somewhere, of Aaron writing that. Or at least, writing something on the wall at some gallery.
