It was released at the Moniker Art Fair. 12" x 12".

The Laminate piece is a different piece.

That Basquiat sleeve art is great. And, I know that some vinyl collectors might disagree, but the bit of wear compliments it nicely.

Detritus Steel Grey? Very nice. Haven't seen real pics of that one.

Pardon the ignorance but why is the Detritus so special?

steel grey variant is an edition of 10, so there is that. the gold inks were suplimented with gold dust that belonged to Ben LaFond's grandfather, who was also a master printer (Ben is one of the printers at Burlesque of North America). I can attest that that gold has a unique shimmer to it.
Detritus happens to be my personal favorite of Aaron's work for the afore mentioned gold metallic as well as the linework and overall imagery.

Wow - I didn't know the whole story behind the gold ink, but it explains a lot. The way that the gold jumps off the paper on this is totally unlike any other print I've seen. My poorly taken photos completely fail to capture just how majestic it looks in person.
