Final Wave of my Grateful Dead artist copies sale, and some heavy news.

It’s been a rough week, with the recent passing of our cat Bailey. Even though he was an indoor cat, he can’t couldn’t help but keep getting outside. This time he almost fought off an attack from a coyote, and while my wife managed to hear the scuffle and valiantly bolted after them, scaring the coyote enough to drop the cat, it was too late, and we had to euthanize. He was a solid member of the family and at 17 years old, with us from the beginning. It’s going to take some time for the hole in our hearts to heal. We’ll miss you terribly, Bay.


In lighter news, Wave Three of the Grateful Dead posters features one single variant: Blue Mirri foil. Yes, there was speculation that a blue foil was coming, and the rumors were true. A straightforward release: when I was designing the posters I knew I was going to feature a red and blue foil to completely round out the red/blue color scheme of the print. Like everything else in the entire run, I am blown away by the quality, color, and registration skill utilized by Ben and the rest of the crew at Burlesque. This print wouldn’t be what it is without their hard work and artistic dedication and integrity.

Wave Three’s blue mirri foil drop will be at 9AM PDT sharp this coming Wednesday, September 19. Here’s a handy link about exact time/time zones. Bypassing the newsletter exclusivity this month for personal emotional ease. Please note that again, there will be a STRICT limit of only one poster per order/household. Orders of multiple prints will be cancelled. This is to try and combat some of the aftermarket aggressive purchases/resales that have been going on. I appreciate the understanding. 

On to the print! Love you all!

Mondocon 2017!

by ncwinters on November 1, 2017

It’s back! My favorite convention of the year.

Super, super excited for Mondocon this year. I’ll be on the corner- booth B34 with several rare works for the convention. Been working for a long time on several new hand embellished prints to release at the convention, along with some last minute gig poster drops from this week! A lot to get through here, so let’s just dive in!

With the success of the hand embellished Alien prints from SDCC, I got to work on a new batch of reworked b/w variant prints, in addition to some of the full color main timed edition. I also realized from SDCC that the prices were a bit…on the low side and have modified the pricing accordingly. $400 each for the hand embellished B/W Variant prints, and $450 each for the full color. There will be limits per person at the booth, as there’s been incredible demand.

“ALIEN” Officially Licensed Screenprint Posters
(hand embellishments of one color limited variant edition and six color open edition)
Print size: 24″ x 36″ Only about eleven available.
$400 (b/w version) and $450 (full color) each.

In addition to the Alien hand embellished prints, I also reworked some of the Primus with Clutch gig posters, the one color variants. These were a ton of fun to do, and I’ll have about 12 available at the convention, for $200 each. I also grabbed a few of the remaining Prints on Wood “Blister” prints and added some embellishment along with a coat of varnish. I’ll have three of these at the show, for $150 each.

I’ll also be bringing a few of the 311 gig posters which sold out super quick earlier this week. There will be limited quantities of each, and only one per person. Various pricing, see below.

And finally, I’m excited to reveal my new glow-in-the-dark gig poster for Primus from last Halloween night. Took a new approach on this one, with very little actual straight up linework, and more subtle shadowy tones throughout. I’ll have EXTREMELY limited quantities of the show version as well as a few variants available (the bulk will release online at a later date). Strict limit of one (of each) per person. See pricing below.

For quick, easy reference, here’s a full list of everything I’ll have at the convention. I’m super excited for this convention, and looking forward to seeing everyone soon. See you there!



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:
