“I Dissent” Art Print and Fundraiser.

by ncwinters on October 1, 2020

Things are pretty intense right now.

There’s just too much going on in every direction, and like many of you, I’m wishing there was more I could do. The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spurred me into action and I’ve decided to try and do something about how I feel. So I’ve made a new art print, and am donating half of the proceeds to the ACLU to raise money for those who combat the widespread injustice going on in the country right now. In their words:

The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union —
beyond one person, party, or side.
Our mission is to realize this promise
of the United States Constitution for all
and expand the reach of its guarantees.

If you wish to support this cause, please consider buying a print. Or maybe you don’t really have an opinion on this matter and want a print to celebrate the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this is for you as well. There’s a chance you don’t care about any of this and are just collecting my art, and looking to add the next piece in your collection. This works for that too.

The prints are 18″ x 12″ three color screenprints, printed by Lady Lazarus in Houston. They’re available in two versions: the regular print as is for $40, and a hand embellished version for $150. Against better judgement, I’m putting NO limits on the prints, even the hand embellished versions(!). So if you want to buy several, I encourage you to do so, even though my future hands may regret that decision. Right now my goal is to raise as much money to donate as possible.

The prints are available right now, and will be until next Friday, October 9. The total number of prints sold within the window will determine the final edition size. Please understand that the final number of prints sold, both regular and especially hand embellished will determine the final shipping time. My estimate for now is 3-5 weeks from today, but of course, that may change depending on the amount sold. I appreciate your patience in advance!

Thank you for your support as always, and specifically for this print. This is something I feel strongly about and thank each and every one of you who joins me in this endeavor. On to the print!

Lepidoptera 4 and 5.

by ncwinters on September 10, 2020

The next two bugs are here!

I’m happy to announce the next two entries in my Lepidoptera series. Increasingly becoming my favorite body of work to date, these Lepidoptera prints are forays into a mental stream of consciousness that act as therapeutic endeavors when other deadlines are pressing. I love making these images.

For this round, it’s a double release – numbers 4 and 5. These will be available as a set only, with a strict limit of one set per buyer/household/spouse. I’ve also hand embellished 10 of each, also with a strict limit of one of each. So you can buy a set and one hand embellished if you want (and are fast enough) but you’ll have to choose your favorite, as nobody gets more than one hand embellished on this drop. Please note I won’t be hand embellishing any more after this set of ten, though I appreciate the offers!

As always, these are meticulously printed by Dave Correia, who has done all the printing for these so far, and will hopefully continue to do so to keep the quality as high as possible! All prints are printed on cold press natural cotton rag. Prints are available for $70 for the set of one of each print (with matching numbers) and $100 for each hand embellished print.

As always, newsletter subscribers get the exact drop time for the release which will be this coming Saturday, September 12. Sign up for the newsletter in the sidebar to get the exact drop time. These have been selling out fast! On to the prints!

SO happy to finally be able to announce this, easily one of my most complex prints to date, and for an amazing cause.

“Fading Away” is a new seven color screenprint to highlight the current plight of the planet’s coral, in a collaboration with Pangeaseed.

The goal behind “Fading Away” was to try and create a visual that brings attention to the urgent plight of the world’s coral. It was challenging to both illustrate the beauty of what we’re rapidly losing due to climate change and pollution, but also underscore the danger of the current situation. Thus, two versions of the print were made. The full “lush” version highlights the overwhelming color and beauty of a natural coral reef, while the “bleached” version emphasizes how much of the coral is looking today, bleached, devoid of color and near dead. The element of the skull is also more emphasized in this version. It was an intentional reason to include a human skull, to draw the connection to the ocean and ourselves, to highlight the very literal way we can “see” ourselves connected to the ocean. What we will lose from the ocean will be directly felt by us as a human species.

On a technical note, this was one of the most challenging screenprint images I’ve created to date, with the full color builds and tonal range requiring airtight registration and color accuracy. It was meticulously printed by the crew at VGKids, and boy did they have a challenge in front of them. The print required airtight registration as well as a challenging series of transparent colors to make this image come together in cohesive unity. Many thanks to the printing crew at VGKids for the exceptional job.

Special thanks as well to Tre’ Packard of Pangeaseed for having me on the project, and for his patience in how long the print took to come to fruition. This was an ambitious project and took much longer than expected, but I’m extremely proud of the results.

The prints measure 18″ x 24″ in both full color “Lush” and the desaturated “Bleached” version. Each version also comes in two versions: regular and deluxe. The regular version features seven colors, while the deluxe versions feature an additional two plates: a glow in the dark layer as well as a transparent spot gloss glitter flake for added emphasis.

To order the limited edition prints, with 50% of proceeds going directly to Pangeaseed and their work to save the world’s oceans, check out the online store link here. The prints go live for purchase this upcoming Thursday, August 6. As always, to get the exact drop time, be sure you’re subscribed to the online newsletter in the sidebar. On to the prints!
