DesignerCon 2019 and New Primus Poster!

by ncwinters on November 21, 2019

It’s back. My favorite convention of the year, plus a brand new Primus gig poster to boot!

DesignerCon is back, and once again, taking place in the Anaheim Convention Center, this weekend November 22–24. I had a blast last year and have loved seeing the evolution of the convention as it gets bigger and better every year. I’ll be exhibiting once again and bringing some exclusives and rarities, as well as conversation and maybe even some sketches here and there. I’m booth 2616, check the map below for my location. As always, any remaining products that don’t sell during the show will be available in my online storefront next week. 

Before I get to my DesignerCon gear, I’m stoked to announce my new Primus poster for their gig last night in Colorado! Always a pleasure to make work for Primus- they were the first band I was ever able to do gig posters for, plus their music makes it easy to just go weird and wild, and this time was no exception. Extremely happy with how the final printing turned out, thanks once again to the crew at Lady Lazarus for an impeccable job. The prints are seven colors on natural stock, with an artist variant colorway on paper, on holographic foil, as well as a desaturated “keyline” variant featuring just the tonal values, in addition to the main show version.

The main portion of the print run will go online for purchase Friday, November 22 at a random time. As always, to get the exact drop time, be sure to be signed up to the newsletter. 

I will also have a portion of each print edition available at DesignerCon. As an extra bonus, I’m bringing a couple hand-embellished prints available exclusively at DesignerCon, strictly limited to one per person/purchase.

DesignerCon 2018!

by ncwinters on November 10, 2018

DesignerCon is back, and bigger than ever.

This year’s DesignerCon is next week in Anaheim, from Friday, November 16–Sunday November 18 at the Anaheim convention center. I’m excited to be exhibiting again after a hiatus where instead I was a guest at Trekell Art Supplies’ booth doing live painting for a couple years. This year it’s all me in my very own booth, selling my gear to the masses. I’m bringing SOOOO much stuff you guys. So much. Four, count ’em FOUR brand new prints, some sold out rarities, sticker packs, all kinds of goodies. I’ll most likely not have time for sketches or small commissioned drawings but you never know, if it slows up I might possibly be persuaded, but too early to tell right now. If any, they’ll be extremely limited, so I can enjoy all the fantastic nightly entertainment and not taking work home every night as seems to be my custom during conventions. The first night: Friday, November 16 is the special VIP night, which will be your best chance to get the exclusives, but I’ll be doing my best to space out the gear over the whole convention. VIP night will have the best goods however, so if you can’t make it, get a poster buddy to hook you up! 

My first offering is a variant of my Primus with Clutch gig poster from last year. This colorway is entitled “Bad Acid” and features some hyper fluorescent inks on a natural stock. I sandbagged this one from last year’s release because while I knew I wanted a crazy psychedelic variant, I also already had several other variant colorways so this one got held back for a someday (if ever) future release. That someday has finally come for this year’s DesignerCon. Super limited edition of 25, each hand signed and numbered. These will have a strict limit of one per person. Meticulous print job by InHouse Silkscreen.

Next up is a brand new offering, the first in a new series entitled “Lepidoptera.” I’ve been playing around in Procreate and really enjoying the freedom to make truly enjoyable works, but I’ve mostly been using it for gig posters. I’ve had the itch to release a full color image that wasn’t hindered by the limitations of silkscreen, and “Lepidoptera 1″ is the first offering in that vein. It’s an 8″ x 10” archival giclee print on cold press natural cotton rag. A limited edition of 100 prints, each hand signed and numbered. Really excited with the quality of how these turned out. Special thanks to Dave Correia for the expert job on the printing.

Next up is another limited edition held back from a previous release: a french speckletone stock variant from my recent Grateful Dead poster. Again, there were already several variants out in the original drop, I held this one back to do a little something special with it. Every poster from this variant run is hand embellished with white acrylic paint, making no two posters the same. These all have a hand touch and make them truly one of a kind. Again, there will be a strict limit of one per person on these. Shout out to Burlesque for their stellar work on the print job.

each print is uniquely hand embellished, no two alike.

My final offerings in the “DesignerCon Exclusives” department are two colorways of “Desert Watcher.” It’s an art print version of my recent 311 gig poster. I knew from the start this one had a destiny both in gig poster and art print form, and I’m excited to finally offer it to the public. The blue colorway is a limited edition of 100, with the orange version in an edition of 75, all prints hand signed and numbered. Once again, strict limit of one per person on these. Thanks to The Half and Half for the excellent printing.

I’ll also be bringing several sold out prints, rarities and one off hand embellished prints. They’ll vary from day to day, but if you’ve been looking for a sold out print, now is your chance. Please note that there will be EXTREMELY limited quantities of each print, and they will rotate throughout each day of the convention, to try and give each day’s con-goers an opportunity, so check back often. There will also be a strict limit of one of each poster available per buyer to again, make everything as fair as possible. These WILL go quick, you’ve been warned!

Will have several rarities and a handful of sold out older gig prints, a little different each day!

And finally, sticker packs are back! I had a couple leftover from the storefront and previous convention, so I’ll have those on hand again. I’m running low though, so get ’em early! Very excited for this convention, gang. I’ll see you next week!

Designer Con 2014!!!

by ncwinters on November 7, 2014

Kinda last minute, I know.

DesignerCon 2014 starts tomorrow and runs until Sunday. I won’t actually be exhibiting this year, but I will be wandering the floor, most likely in a daze. I will however, be signing at the SpankyStokes / Trampt booth, #518 on Sunday, from 1-2 PM. I’ll have a bunch of recent generation phone cases on super reduced pricing at the show, and will be happy to draw in sketchbooks, on old napkins or whatever you put in front of me. It’s a fun show and I wish I was exhibiting, but the Overgrowth show has taken all my time. Full details below, see you at the show!
