Happy New Year!

I’m thrilled to announce a new gig poster for Metallica. Sorry for the late notice, the gig was a few months ago, but there was a snag with my artist edition prints, and then the holidays, and then travel, etc etc. This was actually the first Metallica poster I did, a few weeks before my other one. Different vibe on this one for sure, but in the same “light-from-dark” method of creation, a technique I will be diving back into with gusto for future works. Went with a pretty straightforward narrative on this one, loved the tour’s title “Hard Wired to Self Destruct” and I of course couldn’t resist playing with themes based around those imagery-laden words. 

The colorway was modified for the artist variant at the last minute for this one, due to some printing issues, and I ended up going (again) with a purple theme. Has not necessarily been intentional, but I see that it’s sort of becoming my go-to, so I’ll have to mull over whether that’s a good or bad thing. I’m a huge fan of purple and if it ain’t broke…. Prints are the usual size: 18″ x 24″ in a couple different variant options. Main purple colorway artist variant on bright white comes in a limited edition of 60, each hand signed and numbered, and available for $60 each. Purple colorway on rainbow foil comes in an edition of 30, each signed and numbered, for $150 each. And the super-limited gold foil variant, limited to only 20 copies, and available for $165 each. As always, the drop time will be random, unless you’re signed up for the newsletter, where I’ll let you know the time in the body of the newsletter email.

Please note that I’m still limiting individual variants to one per person, though you are welcome to buy the full set (if you’re fast enough). Buyers found buying more than one of each individual print will have their orders cancelled. And also, I’m still trying to do my best to combat bots and buyers looking to game the system, buying prints under multiple accounts with the sole intention of flipping right to ebay, so there may be some adjustments on the fly during the drop, in the attempts to keep things as fair for everyone. Buyers found gaming the system will have orders refunded and blocked from future orders. You’ve been warned!

Very excited to reveal a gig poster for a big bucket list band: Metallica.

show poster colorway-only available at the gig.

This is actually my second Metallica poster, after one for another gig earlier in October, but I’m still awaiting those prints due to a printing issue. I was hoping to release both posters together, but it’s been a long wait and I want to finally get these out in the world. This was a dream project, as I vividly remember the iconic art and posters as a teenager, most specifically from Pushead. I loved the intensity of the images, which resonated pretty heavily in my young creative brain. It’s an honor to be able to contribute in my own way, years later.

This poster is the first in a recent series where I worked completely from dark to light.Normally I work the other way around, making black marks on a white substrate, but this time I had a creative itch I had to scratch, and this Metallica poster was the perfect fit to dive in. I’m extremely pleased with the result. I layered a ton of detail and dozens of little faces and secrets in the print, that I hope the viewer is able to take their time and explore. My artist variant colorway features a green schema as a six color screenprint on bright white stock, with both rainbow and gold foils also available in limited quantities.

The prints will go live for purchase this coming Wednesday, December 5 at a random time, once again with strict limits of one of each variant per person. As always, to get the exact drop time, you’ll need to be signed up to my newsletter, which you can subscribe to in the sidebar. Also, I’m continuing my efforts to try and combat some of the flagrant flipping and bot purchases that have been pervading my storefront, in the efforts to keep the prints as available for as many as possible. Buyers found using bots and/or flipping the prints right to eBay at mega markups can expect to have their orders refunded and blacklisted from future sales.

On to the prints!

“Urgent Need” for Giving Tuesday.

by ncwinters on November 27, 2018

It’s #givingtuesday and my wife reminded me that my donation to the ACLU foundation is due, so I I thought I’d mention this print again.

“Urgent Need” was created a few years ago with the banner text that reads “An Urgent Need for a Renewed Sense of Compassion.” I feel that there’s an increasing amount of hostility, xenophobia and general unawareness both in the political landscape and in online and social media interactions in general. It’s increasingly easier to stay in a bubble of like minded people who all share the same viewpoint, and more isolated to different points of view, cultures and ways of being. A reminder to focus on a greater sense of compassion and human awareness is my goal for this image, traits which ultimately end up reminding us just how actually similar we all are on a human scale on the ride atop this hunk of rock in space.

Originally my goal was to donate 20% of the proceeds of all sales of this print to the ACLU Foundation, but after a successful year, I’m in a better financial place to up the donation to 30%. The print is a five-color silkscreen print, printed by Danny Askar and measures 16” x 20.” The edition size is 300 prints, each hand signed and numbered and available for $40 plus shipping. With about 70 prints left before they’re gone, I’d love to see this print sold out before this year is over, so I can make the final donation and get going on to another charity print for 2019.

If you’ve ever wanted to support what I do and believe in, this is the print. It’s not a big, super rare gig poster or super limited edition movie poster, but it is for a cause I believe in. Thanks for looking and for all the generosity you’ve already given this year, and happy holidays to all! 

Full purchase info and details available below. Thank you!

“Urgent Need” limited edition screenprint
