Authentically re-create the low-fi print aesthetic of vintage comic book printing from the comfort of your digital studio.

Developed in collaboration with talented designer, illustrator and low-brow comic fetishist Ryan Besch, DEBASER must be our favourite Signature Collection release to date.

Based on authentic pre-digital color formulas and line screen angles used during the Golden, Silver, Bronze and Dark Ages of comic book publishing, we've built a huge package of ready-to-use pattern swatches, actions and textures complete with a streamlined process for applying them to your work. 

Join us on a journey back to when brush and ink ruled the studio, digital publishing was but a sweaty fantasy and everyone smoked like it was a cure for cancer.

          About Ryan Besch

          Ryan Besch is a multi-talented designer, low-brow illustrator and DIY merch maker from Buffalo, NY.

          Inspired by the taboo underbelly of the cultural landscape, Ryan's work features a cast of unseemly characters, from smoking hotdog-banana's and bird flipping condoms to sweaty gimp mask dungeon-masters and cigarette smoking foods.

          Mostly working in pen, brush and ink, Ryan's illustration work reflects his love of  vintage comics and low-brow humor whilst his graphic design and poster work is a masterclass in textural witchcraft and screen-printed aesthetics.

          With an impressive list of past and present clients including Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Kills, Phish, The Black Keys and Nitro Snowboards, Ryan still finds time to work on his self-published range of t-shirts, posters, stickers and pins under his brand Weird Sin Industries.
