WONDERCON 2017 with New Sloth Print Release!

by ncwinters on March 31, 2017

Wondercon!

The annual event that is Wondercon is back again, and this time, back at the Anaheim Convention Center. I’ll be there, selling prints, original art and maybe even some sketches and on hand to chat away. It’s a much more low key convention than say, San Diego Comic Con, and pretty fun all around. I’m at booth 1024, right next to my buddies at Yesterdays Pins.

I spent a heavy amount of time the other day doing some new ink wash studies on my limited edition screenprinted “sketchcards.” These are single color screened prints on Stonehenge printmaking paper, and limited to 200 in grand total. Each card is worked to be a unique creation, with the border elements pre-printed via screen. I’ll have about a dozen new cards available at the convention all themed around my recent exploration, the skull. Each original drawing is priced at convention pricing: $75 each until gone.

6.5″ x 9.5″ about twelve out of limited edition of 200.
Hand signed and numbered. (2017)
$75 each.

In addition to original art and prints, I’ll be debuting a brand new screenprint. “Hugs” is my new three-color hand pulled sloth-themed screenprint and comes in two colorways. As usual, each is hand signed and numbered by me, and even come with a sloth sticker to boot. A much more limited run this time, at 100 qty for the regular, and only 50 for the variant. They debut at Wondercon, but any remainders will go online after the show for public purchase. See you there!

WONDERCON 2016!

by ncwinters on March 21, 2016

It’s almost here!

CCIPWCA_1

This Friday is the first day of Wondercon, a three day comics, pop culture and art festival at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown LA. Sort of a smaller, more sane version of San Diego Comic Con, Wondercon is a little more low-key and from the time I’ve gone before, less manic. Who knows how it will be this year though, as it’s my first time as an exhibitor! The convention runs from Friday, March 25 through Sunday, March 27. The hours are a little different each day, Friday: 12PM– 7PM, Saturday: 10AM–7PM and Sunday: 10AM–5PM. Full details about attending the show available here. I’ll be hawking my wares and drawing live the whole time at corner booth #341, on the left side of the convention center in Hall G next to Small Press and the Lounge. Here’s a little map for your quick reference:

We’re in corner booth #341, in Hall G just outside the
small press area, on the left side of the convention center.

For my very first time exhibiting at Wondercon, I’ll be teaming up with the good guys at Yesterdays pins. To commemorate this unholy union, we’ll be releasing my very first enamel pin as part of their artist edition series. “Avion” is a 1.25″ soft enamel black nickel plated lapel pin that comes in two vivid colorways: “Fire” and “Ice.” These pins will debut to attendees of Wondercon for $12 each. Any available remaining pins will go in the online shop after the convention ends.

Next up is a brand new screenprinted sketchcard, a return of the super popular experiment from last year’s Mondocon. I’ve upped the detail this time around on these sepia screenprinted cards on Stonehenge printmaking paper. The paper is perfect for ink drawing, which I’ll be doing on each and every card, in essence making a set of limited edition of 200 originals. Only a limited amount will be available at Wondercon, as last time I offered sketchcards, demand exceeded supply (see also: I couldn’t draw fast enough) and I had to cut the line off. I’ve learned my lesson and limited the supply and also slightly upped the price, though at $40 a pop for a limited edition screenprint that is ALSO an original drawing, it’s still an amazing deal. For those wanting something extra special, I’ll have embellished colored ink ones in super limited availability for $75 apiece. I may have to cut the line off again if demand is too great, so get here early to reserve a spot. In addition to working live, I’ll have a handful of finished sketchcards with more detail and full color available for $100 apiece.

each card will be hand signed and numbered.

And finally, as usual, I’ll have several small original drawings and paintings, some giclee prints and maybe even a custom framed original or two available at the show. Never quite sure exactly what I’ll pull out of the stack to bring to the convention, so keep your eyes peeled.

I hope to see you there!
