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!

A dream project, that I’m finally able to share.

I’m thrilled to announce my officially licensed “Alien” print now available through Mondo and 20th Century Fox. The good guys at Mondo reached out with a dream project for my first officially licensed movie poster. In the words of Mondo:

“H.R. Giger’s iconic design for the Xenomorph is just about perfect. It’s instantly identifiable, timeless and terrifying. N.C. Winters has paid wonderful tribute to Giger’s brilliant design in his poster for ALIEN. N.C.’s rendering and careful attention to detail across the Xeno design is stunning. This poster will be on sale as an extended timed edition release, available starting now and running through May 19th when ALIEN: COVENANT is released in theaters.”

The poster came together unbelievably well, and is one of the top pieces of work I’ve ever created. I had a strong intent to run with Giger’s original artistic design and tried to stay as true it as possible, and Mondo and Fox were both happy to support this vision. The main colorway is an open timed edition, and will end right at the release of ALIEN:COVENANT, but the variant edition is expected to sell out soon, so jump on it!  (ALREADY SOLD OUT!)

Without further delay, the print:

“ALIEN” Officially Licensed Screenprint Poster (regular open timed edition)
Print size: 24″ x 36″ timed edition print
Final edition size limited to number sold between April 19 and May 19, 2017

“Urgent Need” New Print Release With ACLU Donation

by ncwinters on February 11, 2017

I’m very excited to finally be able to release this print.

UrgentNeed_MUG_600

Since the recent presidential election, I’ve struggled with finding the best way to express myself regarding the heightened sense of hostile rhetoric in our current political and social climate. I had originally planned a new print in response, based around some darker, angrier imagery. I was hoping to voice my frustration through art, something I don’t always do, as I try to keep political views out of my works for the general public. This was the time however, to make my voice heard.

Very quickly though, I realized the best way I could contribute to the conversation, and the best way to keep my head free from constant anger and resentment was to focus on compassion and inclusion. So I scrapped some of the original designs and instead focused on a new message of hope and compassion. The result is “Urgent Need” which combines imagery of rebirth in the allegory of the Phoenix, combined with unique imagery with an emphasis on compassion for the beauty of ALL life, however different from one’s own.

As part of this special release, I’m proud to be donating 20% of all profits of the sale directly to the ACLU. While I wish it could be a greater percentage, this is an experiment to see if this print and message will find resonance with buyers who are of like mind. If the sale does well, I plan on future prints with a similar theme where I can hopefully donate a much larger percentage to the ACLU and other important organizations. Together, hopefully we can all work together to make a difference through art.

UrgentNeed_SigningDetail_600Prints are 16″ x 20″ on Madero Beach 100lb speckletone paper, expertly printed by Daniel Askar at Static Medium Printing. Each print is hand signed and numbered and will never be reprinted. Prints are $40 each, and will ship in 2-4 weeks after the sale. The print will be available for purchase this coming Wednesday, February 15. As always, the exact drop time will be available to those who have subscribed to my email newsletter, (found in the sidebar of this site) in the next day or so.

I thank you so much for your support of my art and in this particular case, the ACLU. I’m proud to be able to donate money to their incredible work, and honored to have your support in this endeavor. Thank you!
