New PRIMUS Gig Poster: July 5, Los Angeles!

by ncwinters on July 6, 2018

Brand new madness.

I’m back, and hitting the ground running after taking off for a last minute holiday jaunt to Hawaii. The next day back means it’s right back to work! No complaints, I absolutely love my job. I am beyond excited to finally be able to reveal this poster. Fresh off the success of the juggernaut of my recent Grateful Dead poster (thank you all!), this PRIMUS gig poster has gone through quite the gauntlet of work, and is part of why I may have shaved a year or so off my life from the end of 2017 into the early part of 2018.

Using every gig poster to constantly try and push my skills, experiment and see how much I can completely break the screenprinting process in the efforts to create something new, I’m pleased to present this bucket of madness, the poster for the Primus gig last Thursday, July 5 in LA. I worked super dense and went for a rich range of shading on this one, and indeed utilized a total of 4 black inks to round out the gamut. One solid black, and three separate transparent blacks were all painstakingly split out to go over three different rich colors. Ultimately the print is four colors, with seven screens used. Special shout out to Jon Smith for his help on some of the finer tweaks for the blacks. DL Screenprinting handled the final printing, and absolutely knocked it out of the park. Special thanks to them.

In addition to the main show edition, I’ll have a couple color variants along with two foil versions available from my online shop, dropping this Monday, July 9th at a random time. As always, to get the exact info about drop time, you MUST be subscribed to my online newsletter, to which you can sign up in the sidebar. Full info about each print below. Thanks as always for the incredible support! On to the posters!

New Licensed Poster: Grateful Dead!

by ncwinters on June 20, 2018

My most elaborate poster to date, and I’m so excited to finally release it.

Yes, it is indeed an official partnership with the Grateful Dead estate and Bottleneck Gallery to release this 12 color screenprinted poster in celebration of the band. Easily my most detailed work to date, with well over a thousand hours working on this beast between September of 2017 and April of 2018. The work went through quite a labor intensive process and is layered with multiple vibrant hues and transparent shades to try and garner maximum depth and fidelity. I’m extremely pleased with the final result.

This will be available as a timed release through Bottleneck Gallery. A limited number of rainbow swirl foil variants will also be for sale through the site. Sale starts on Thursday, June 21st at 12pm EST and ends on Sunday June 24th at 11:59pm EST. The edition size of the release will be determined when the sale ends. Full details below.

New PRIMUS Gig Poster- May 16 Atlanta.

by ncwinters on May 18, 2018

New gig poster!

First off, I have to say how much I’ve enjoyed doing gig posters for the band Primus. I get full creative freedom to make what I want (so far!) and the response to the posters by the fans has been amazing. Extra special thanks as always to the enigmatic Zoltron for bringing me on board for the Primus posters. His generosity is matched only by his mysterious nature. Also have to give huge props to Lady Lazarus, the printer from Houston. They absolutely nailed the printing on this one, and on a short timeline to boot.

This was a fun chance to pull a recent moleskine drawing into gig poster form, and I’m very very pleased with the result. The hyper details in the original ink, horror vacui-style drawing were split out to several tonal levels to make the image a little less manic on the eyes. Plus, the horizontal aspect was a nice change of pace. Was also fun to do this with minimal colors- just four for each colorway (sepias and teals), and then a hybrid of both on the third. In addition to the three different color versions, there are three corresponding rainbow foil versions, in minimal amounts for those who are fans of the shiny. All prints will go up for sale this coming Monday at a random time in the online store. As always, to get the exact drop time, you need to be subscribed to my newsletter, in the sidebar of the site. 

On to the posters!
