PRIMUS

Another year, another San Diego Comic Con, and it’s right around the corner.

Happy to be back at booth 4716 with my parter in crime Anthony Petrie, all the way over from New York. I’m looking forward to this year’s SDCC for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it’s the end of several months of projects. I can see people, show what I’ve been working on, and then take it easy afterwards for awhile. Here’s hoping anyway! I’ll be bringing a couple special exclusives that I’m pretty excited about, so let’s just dive in and check ’em out.

*UPDATE: I’ll also be participating in a live art jam/silent auction again this year at Bar Basic on Thursday, July 20. I’ve participated in the last several years and I’m honored to be back again, painting alongside some amazing artists. No admission, it’s always a blast, come on by!

In addition to some small originals and prints, one of my two super-special SDCC exclusives is a select few (see: only SEVEN) hand-embellished versions of my recent Mondo-released, officially licensed “Alien” print variant. The original variant is a one color black on white stock screenprint, but I designed these in part with the intent to do some hand-colored versions. “Hand embellished” may be a bit of a misnomer, as the prints are each fully hand-painted over the original screenprint, and truly one-of-a-kind. A ton of work, but I’m thrilled with how they all turned out. I’ll only have seven, and there’s been lots of excitement, so if you’re interested, get there early. $250 each, ink, acrylics and varnish on one-color screenprint.

“ALIEN” Officially Licensed Screenprint Poster
(hand embellishment of limited variant edition)

Print size: 24″ x 36″ ONLY SEVEN AVAILABLE!
One color screenprint on paper.
Each print is hand signed & numbered. $250 each.

My next exclusive, well, you first should first know that I’m a huge Rick and Morty fan. If you’re not aware of the show, it’s a hilarious sci-fi cartoon on Adult Swim, but there’s really no good way to describe it. Go watch an episode or two online. If you’re not hooked right away, the show probably isn’t for you. It is definitely for me, and I often get several commissions during SDCC for R&M characters. So this time, to try and save my wrists during the convention, I’ve done a bunch in advance, which will be available for purchase, but with one caveat. You won’t know which one you’re getting. That’s right, the drawings will all be “blind-boxed” and sealed and paying the $75 lets you pick randomly for which one you’ll end up with. Adds an air of mystery to the event, as even I won’t know which one you end up with until you open them up. It’s an experiment, like everything else I do, but so far, the response has been pretty positive. We’ll find out at the con! Each drawing is 8″ x 10,” ink on paper and available for $75 each. 

Rick and Morty blind-boxed drawings (30 different).
Pen & ink on paper.
8″ x 10″ (2017) $75 each, available “blind-boxed”

All 30 drawings: for better views, swing by my Instagram page.

Each drawing is sealed in a “blind box” so even I don’t know which one you’ll be getting until you purchase and open it up!

I’ll try and get a couple more done before the end of the convention. It’s a mystery!

In addition to the han- embellished Alien prints, I’ll also have some recently sold-out prints available, including prints of “Mortal Coil” and my recent Primus gig poster.

New PRIMUS Gig Poster!

by ncwinters on May 20, 2017

–My very first gig poster!

First of all, a huge shoutout to the enigmatic Zoltron for bringing me on for my first gig poster, and for the band Primus no less. I’ve been itching to try my hand at an official concert gig poster and was excited to give my first opportunity everything I had. I went full crazy on detail and concept, and the band was totally on board, which was a delight. I’m extremely pleased with the result, and may have gone a little overboard with seven inks, but wanted to come out with a splash. Like everything else I do, it was a complete experiment and I’m stoked with the result. Big ups to Roberta and Jose at InHouse Printing for making the poster shine the way I envisioned it.

The posters are for the May 20 2017 gig date at 20 Monroe Live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and measure 18″ x 24.” Total ink counts: seven colors on three different paper stocks. There are three variants, including one on foil. The first variant is a deliciously poisonous evil mushroom version in cool teals and purples. The second pulls back to more subdued oranges and lavenders on a licorice stock which super enhances the glow around the candy beetle. I was skeptical to include a foil option as the third variant as I know this can be the go-to option for many posters, but I tried to use the medium in a way that would enhance this specific design. I dropped out one of the pale blues to have the iridescent foil shine through in many subtle details and I’m super happy with the result. Each print is hand signed and numbered and available Tuesday, May 23 in the online shop here.

Thanks!
