San Diego Comic Con

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.

San Diego Comic Con! Full Info and Exclusives!

by ncwinters on July 21, 2014

It’s almost here!


I am happy to announce that I will be at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year, in booth #4531 with the Brothers Washburn of Color Ink Book. The convention runs from July 24-July 27, 2014 with a special limited preview night July 23, from 6-9PM for preview night badge holders only.

I will have several items available for purchase, most of which will be available EXCLUSIVELY at the convention, and not available for pre-order or purchase online. Any remaining unsold will be available after the show. I will also be constantly drawing, with small originals and sketchcards available for purchase.


In addition to the daily sessions in the booth, I will be participating in VERSUS II, the second annual live art battle (and seventh annual SDCC party) at Bar Basic in downtown San Diego. Hosted by Munkyking, the event pits two sets of three pairs of artists in a head to head to head art battle in front of a live crowd, fueled only by pizza, booze and a quest for glory. The winners of each set then face off for the crown, or in this case, belt. I’m honored to be paired with the legendary Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez and be pitted against some amazing artists who happen to also be good friends. The night should be an unforgettable experience, if it’s anything like last year’s debut event.

Comic Con is almost here!

I’m pleased to announce I will be signing at ColorInk Book booth #5638 on Thursday, July 18 from 1-2PM and on Saturday, from 12:30-1:30PM. I am honored to be the cover artist for this month’s issue, and have a spread of several drawings in the magazine as well. If you’re not familiar with the excellent magazine put out by the Brothers Washburn, you’re missing out. I will also debut the cover painting “You Can Never Go Back” with a limited edition print run of 25 prints. Each print is hand signed and numbered, and as an added bonus, each print will come with a random small drawing or painting. Some will be simple ink drawings, while others will be full color small paintings, all with a retail value of $50-$150. The drawings and prints will be “blindboxed” as it were with each print, so you never know what you’ll end up with! Everyone who purchases a print will definitely get some kind of original art though. It’s a win-win as the kids say.

I’ll be drawing, painting and on hand to sign, draw in your sketchbook, or chat about pretty much anything. The booth number is #5638: Color Ink Book. See you there!
