The newer work he's been putting out, like this, the mondocon/Hyperstoic OGs and the Lana Del Rey Lyrics are too cool. The standard meticulously rendered detail within forms and images that are pretty loose compared to the work of the last couple years, is rad. That bat is drymounting rowdy. In a lot of ways the new stuff reminds me of some of the abuse pieces, but with a whole new dynamism and skill level.

Good observation.

Just noticed, is that heart actually a Ouiga Board planchette.

I also noticed this on the Blood Milk Jewels IG feed:



And this page on her website: http://www.bloodmilkjewels.com/collections/planchettes

Nice personal touch there by Aaron.

Pretty cool to incorporate a Kitsune (which is all over the place in Japanese folklore) into the poster for Japan. Didn't really connect those pieces until this post.

Discharge ink removes the color from the shirt. Leaving the shirt nice and soft. Most shirts are printed with plastisol which is a plastic that lays on top of the shirt leaving a plastic texture. It’s pretty much the same process with both material. I know this from research, never worked with discharge so maybe the printer can give some more specific info.

Plastisol ink, which is used on 99% of shirts, is a plastic based ink that is heat set onto the mesh of the shirt fabric. You are left with a thick, rubbery, non-porous image on your shirt.

Discharge inks act more like a heat activated bleach. The printed area removes the pigment from the actual shirt fabric itself, and after an initial wash to remove the ink residue, you are left with an image that feels just as soft as the rest of the non-printed areas of the shirt.

TLDR: Discharge inks are soft and breathable, Plastisol inks are thick and rubbery.

EDIT: Thanks trey!

I'll need a copy of this so that I can see and feel the difference between discharge and plastisol inks. :wink: Thanks!
