SDCC

Post-SDCC Exclusives Drop.

by ncwinters on July 29, 2022

Wow, what a week. San Diego Comic Con wrapped as quite the surreal experience.

In addition to everyone in masks (very diligently, I might add), it both felt just like previous years, and also completely different. All in all, it was immensely successful, somehow my most successful convention to date! I was saved with the help of my friend Chris Koch manning the booth, taking orders, keeping me fed and caffeinated, and keeping me from overly lowballing my prices, as I’m wont to do from time to time. Some highlights of the convention include a personal email from Pee Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) and Adam Jones of the band Tool coming by the booth to talk art. Excited to see if it leads to a future Tool poster, fingers crossed!

With Adam Jones of Tool. Such a pleasure.

Thank you to everyone who came to the convention, took the time to chat, sent someone to pick up some work for them, and for the support in general. It’s humbling and reminds me just how lucky I am to be able to make art for a living, and it’s all thanks to all of you. Thank you as always.

I still have a handful of sold out posters, original paintings, rarities, hand embellished works, Magic: the Gathering artist proof cards and many B3TL sets left (nobody has got any of the 20 sets with the secret variant yet!). In addition, my printer sent me some surprise rare foils and exotic paper stocks for the Sigarda print, all in micro editions of only 2-5 each! Check the store for specifics. My remaining exclusives will be available for purchase tomorrow, July 30 at around 11AM in the online shop. As always, to get the exact drop time and therefore best chance to buy, be sure you’re subscribed to the newsletter in the sidebar.

San Diego Comic-Con 2022: It’s Back!

by ncwinters on July 19, 2022

It’s a mad dash and I’m running behind, what else is new?

San Diego Comic-Con has returned in person after a two year break. It runs this week, July 21 to July 24. I’ll be exhibiting and slinging art in the usual spot again this year at Booth 4619 in the Fantasy Illustrators section in Lobby G. Preview night (available to 4 day pass holders ONLY) is Wednesday, July 20, at 6PM. This is the special “preview” to the official opening and is generally known to be the best time to get the super exclusives.

This year I have several new offerings that will debut exclusively at SDCC. For those not attending, I will be holding back some of the new items to sell in my online shop after the convention, along with as any unsold items. I’ll mention that release date later. But SDCC is still going to be the best bet for access, so get your poster buddies ready!

I’m spacing the allotment of my art for sale over the entire four days of the convention, but it will be weighted heavier towards the beginning and slow down as the show progresses. I’ll have a good portion of my drop available on Preview Night though, so to get your best shot at the super rares and exclusives try to get there as early as possible.

First off, I’m debuting the next set of Lepidoptera: Lep 14 “Luna” and Lep 15 “Sphinx.” They come in the regular matching sets of two as usual, and also feature a variant colorway in more limited amounts, sold individually. I will also once again have a small amount of hand embellished versions available for $250 each. For some of them, I got carried away and they went from “hand embellished” to essentially “full blown painting.” These will be denoted as Premium Hand Embellished, and available for $400 each.

Hand Embellished version – $250 each.
Limit one per person.

Premium Hand Embellished – over-the-top galactic version – $400 each.
Limit one per person.

I forgot to mention in the chaos of the year that I designed two cards for Magic: the Gathering: Grim Backwoods (land) and Sigarda, Champion of Light (legendary creature). This was a true bucket list project, and I’m excited to have my artist proofs available at the convention. The artist proofs differ from regular cards by having blank backs. Every card will have a unique random sketch on the back and will be hand signed and numbered. Sigarda comes in both a regular and a more limited holographic foil version.

I also have a brand new set of bugs (insects have become a bit of a theme) entitled “B3TL” (pronounced “beetle”). B3TL is a new collectible set of four 5″ x 7″ giclee prints on watercolor paper (the same paper as Lepidoptera) in a limited edition of 150 sets. Twenty lucky buyers will also receive one of four different B3TLs in a variant colorway, limited to only five total of each. They’re blind-packed, so you won’t know until you open them. Limit three packs per person. Hand embellished sets also available, though no rares included in the hand embellished sets.

B3TL Series One– set of four 5″ x 7″ prints. $100 per set.
Limit three sets per person.

Hand Embellished set $250 each.
Limit one set per person.

I will also be debuting a new screenprint from the Sigarda art I created for Magic: the Gathering. The poster will be available in two colorways, each print hand signed and numbered.

There will be far more small originals available than what is listed below, keep an eye on my Instagram and Facebook page/stories for updates on new originals as they get completed. And of course, check by the booth often as I’ll most likely be painting live much of the time.

Lots of bugs this year! Several small originals in various sizes.
3″ x 5″ to 4″ x 6″ (shown above) $200-$300 each.

Larger pieces will also be available.
“Mood Board” 9″ x 12″ $900.

And finally, it wouldn’t be a convention without hard-to-find gems. I’ll have some sold-out gig posters from Primus, Dave Matthews Band, Metallica, 311 and more. Also, look for some elusive art prints including Fading Away, Liminal, and recent sold out Lepidoptera.

Sold out Primus Broadmoor variant foil, and others!

See you at the CON!

SDCC 2019!

by ncwinters on July 13, 2019

San Diego Comic Con. Is it really next week?!?

This is the year of hand embellished prints, and I’ve learned my lesson from previous shows and will be bringing much more on that front. Once again I find myself behind and working nonstop to try and get as many pieces done in time for the show, and will be working right up until it’s time to leave for the convention center. I’ll be exhibiting in the same spot as last year: booth #4619 in the outside edge of the Fantasy Illustrators section, between lobby F and G. As always, SDCC is in the San Diego Convention Center in downtown San Diego, and takes place this year from July 17–21.

NEW IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PREVIEW NIGHT, PLEASE READ!
Part of what I try to do when selling my art is take into account the buyer’s experience. I’m eternally grateful for everyone who’s ever spent money on the things I make, and part of my goals are to make that experience as fair and equitable as possible. In the past, when people rush to get in line to buy my rare prints, there are often people in the front who end up buying much of the stock, leaving those behind with no chance. There is certainly a supply and demand aspect of limited works, but I’m trying my best to figure out a good solution. So this year, there’s a new rule for preview night (and for the following days when there’s a mad rush). There will be a limit of no more than 3 hand embellished prints PER PURCHASE. If you want to get back in line to try and score more works, you will be allowed to purchase again, but again, no more than 3 hand embellished (or super rare) items per purchase. If you are working on a PB (poster buddy) situation to buy for others, you’ll have to prioritize your plans and make a couple trips in the line. While this might seem unfair, consider that the person in front of you was also limited, thus ensuring a better chance for more people to score more works. This is how the process will go this year–there will be signs in the booth as a reminder to everyone–in an effort to allow the most people access. Note that the hand embellished “Herald of Antiquity” prints are specifically limited to one PER PERSON.

Okay, now to start the listings off, I’ve got a brand new print, the second in the “Lepidoptera” series. Aptly named “Lepidoptera 2,” this lil’ moth fella is a companion to the first, and will be available exclusively at the convention. The print measures 8″ x 10″ on a heavy cold press watercolor paper stock, the same as the previous print. Once again, expertly printed by Dave Correia. The prints are hand signed and numbered, in an edition of 150, and will be capped at no more than 2 per person at the show. Prints will sell for $35, full info below.

Next on the list is a small set of hand embellished Grateful Dead prints from last year’s print release. This run went on many different stocks and some ended up super, super limited, such as this year’s convention release. It’s a tiny edition of only 5 prints, printed on heavy duty French brown box Kraft-tone stock. Each of these prints were then hand embellished with a series of colored inks and white acrylic to punch the weathered look even further. I’m really pleased with how these turned out- the effect is that of an old weathered Grateful Dead poster from way back in the day. There will be a strict limit of no more than one per person, and these will sell for $200 each.

Next is a new wave of “Herald of Antiquity” prints, my one color art screenprint from a few years ago. I forgot that I had only released a handful of these in a hand embellished form, and discovered the box of remaining prints in prep for the convention, and I spent a great deal of time hand embellishing each of these with colored inks and acrylics. The prints are on Stonehenge heavy printmaking paper, which is just perfect and fantastic for really building up thin washes of color for a truly saturated final image. As always, these are all uniquely hand embellished and no two are alike. Strict limit of one per person for the show, the prints will be available for $100 each. Full details below.

I’ve also been working on embellishing a selection of gig posters. These are my APs (unnumbered artist’s proofs) of some rarities, hard-to finds and even some recent new prints, including my Dave Matthews gig poster as well as Mastodon.  As I learned from Flatstock this year, the hand embellished prints were quite popular but there was frustration as to how few there were and how fast they went, so I upped the quantity for SDCC. All available in various pricing, hovering around the $200-$300 mark, with a limit of no more than two hand embellished posters per person.

And finally, I’ll be bringing a bunch of backstock from sold out runs. I try to always sandbag a couple of prints from each gig poster drop, as a special thank you to convention goers. If you’ve had your eye on a sold out gig poster, this is your best chance to score something rare. Limits will be in place for the rare posters, applicable to each individual poster. Note that I will be spacing out the drops over the entire convention, with the majority of the wares available on preview night, which is Wednesday, July 17. See you then, and thanks for the support!
