Hey look, it’s 2023.

Where did the time go? No, seriously, can anyone tell me? Another year, another rotation around the sun. Another January, full of promise and opportunity. To kick it off, here’s something I’ve been working on for awhile finally and ready to release out into the world.

“Madness Revealed” is the first print of many slated to release for the Year of the Rabbit. This declaration is both exciting and nerve-wracking, as it forces me to wrap up many of the projects that have been puttering about in limbo: half started, half finished, however you want to look at it. I’ve got my very first employee on staff, and a strong sense of forward-momentum that I hope lasts, as I’m shooting to make this year a big one.

Where was I? Oh yeah:

“Madness Revealed” is the reworked art print version of an image I created for a Primus gig, back in 2018. That feels like a good 13 years ago by my Covid-math. Since then I’ve tweaked elements of the image, adjusted the tonal range, finessed the colors a bit more, and other parts of the boring alchemy that goes into the creation of an image for screenprint. Needless to say, I’m happy with the results.

Printed once again by the crack team at DL Screenprinting, I’m continually grateful for their commitment to printing excellence. I didn’t give a lot of room in regards to plate registration for this print, and they still managed to nail it, without the whole image turning into a blurry mess. Kudos to Steve and the rest of his team for top notch execution. The prints come in three colorways: “Main,” “Vintage” and “Midnight” in various edition sizes/prices. Full details below.

In addition to the new art print, there will also be a new sticker pack available. Lepidoptera 6–10 Pack o’ Stickers is a collection of five stickers: one of each of Lepidoptera 6–10, in a similar format to the previous Lepidoptera Sticker pack (1–5). Thanks to the automatons at Sticker Robot for the phenomenal printing, their high quality screenprinted vinyl stickers have to be seen and held in person to be truly appreciated. Always a joy and an easy going production process working with them. Full details below.

If you are new to my work, welcome! I try to send my newsletter out about once a month to update you with new releases in the storefront, various goings on, and hopefully this year: an insider scoop on the behind-the-scenes of my art making process. I’ve been promising this forever though, hopefully 2023 is the year it finally happens! In the meantime, on to the prints, and thank you as always for the support of my art!

New Gig Poster: Trey Anastasio Band and Goose.

by ncwinters on December 6, 2022

New gig poster!

I’m happy to announce my first ever gig poster for Trey Anastasio Band and Goose. The gig date was a few weeks ago: November 19, in Reading Pennsylvania.

Trey Anastasio Band with Goose
November 19 2022, at Santander Arena in Reading, PA
Sold out Main show edition – only available at venue.

I’m extremely pleased with how the final posters turned out. Special thanks to DL Screenprinting for the fabulous job on printing. I understand the poster sold out at the venue, which is always great to hear, in terms of the image resonating with people. Special thanks to Jimmy for having me onboard for this gig.

My artist variants come in two colorways: “Ice” and “Blush,” in blue and pink tones respectively. The prints are 18″ x 24″ seven color screenprints on Cougar natural 100# paper stock. Each colorway is also available on holographic rainbow foil, with an added white base, for a total of eight colors. The situation with the band was unique this time, in that there are an even number of foils as paper prints, which is a first for me. There is still a strict limit of one foil of each colorway per person/family/household, so that as many people as possible can get them (limited to the number of prints of course).

My artist variant copies go up for sale tomorrow: Wednesday, December 7 in the online shop. As always, newsletter subscribers get the exact drop time. Sign up for the newsletter here.

As always, thank you for the continued support of my artwork. I spend quite a bit of time reflecting on this bizarre career I’m fortunate to have: to be able to make and sell my own artwork for a living. I am always aware of how fortunate I am to even have the option to do what I do, but I try to be as diligent as I can to not take it for granted. Thank you to each and everyone who has purchased work, liked, or commented on anything I’ve made or posted. Even to those who only read these newsletters, thank you for spending your precious time reading and even more so when sharing with those you care about. I am trying to be better about responding to likes, comments and messages (I’ve even hired someone to try and help on that front) but I know there’s more that can be done, so in the meantime I will use part of this space to specifically say: “Thank you.”

On to the prints, and Happy Holidays!

In case you didn’t know, there is a group on Facebook dedicated to my artwork. The group is filled with really good people who discuss my art, share their purchases and trades, show off work they’ve had framed and help each other out in acquiring long lost works of mine. I didn’t create the group, several “fans” did ( I always find the word awkward). I’m not super active as much as I’d like to be, but am trying better to pop in more often with live video updates and special releases for the members of the group. Check it out if you’re interested!
Fans of N.C. Winters.

Post-DesignerCon Drop!

by ncwinters on November 29, 2022

Another DesignerCon has come and gone, and was an overall excellent experience.

Special thanks to my booth partner, Jim Mazza for teaming up with me, to share resources and space while we hawked our wares to excited patrons. Always a blast hanging out with you my friend. Additionally, the convention wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance from friends Adrian and Chris. Both gentlemen were completely on top of it: taking orders, rolling prints, keeping us fed and overall keeping the artists on top of their game. The convention would have been a very different experience and way less fun without those two. All told the whole group of four: the Steak Bois made the convention something special. They all together really were the clam’s garters, they were indeed truly: the cat’s ass. (You just had to be there).

My post-convention wares will drop this coming Wednesday, November 30 at a random time. As always, be sure you’re signed up to the newsletter for the exact drop time. There are still several original paintings, and I’ve held onto several copies of my exclusive print releases, so there is still much available. But still, don’t snooze on the drop, you’ve been warned!
*For those curious, my recent Trey Anastasio band gig poster artist copies will be available in the very near future but NOT on this drop. Stay tuned!)
