This weekend, SpokeArt will host the newest iteration of their hit QUENTIN vs COEN art show!
Nakatomi artist, Tim Doyle will have 3 new prints, plus variants available at the SpokeArt gallery in San Francisco on Saturday, and next week on their website HERE.
Each of the three new prints will measure 16×20, and are printed in super-small first editions of only 50 worldwide! Each feature metallic silver ink! There will also be SUPER limited variant prints of each image, with an edition of only 15, that have silver AND gold metallic ink! (The Gold will replace the background color)
If the prints sell out through SpokeArt, there will be no copies left for Nakatomi to sell, so MAKE SURE you get ‘em from the gallery!
The original pen and ink drawings will also be available- make sure you email the gallery and ask for the collector’s preview, if you want to get your hands on those!
Can’t wait to see what else is available at this show! It’s one of our long-time favorites, and we’re so glad to see it back!
The Sea Also Rises Prints by Tim Doyle
On sale details HERE
THE SEA ALSO RISES- TURTLES AND SHARKS!
For the first time on Nakatomi , we have 2 BIG 24×36 prints in artist Tim Doyle’s ongoing ‘The Sea Also Rises’ series of prints, available HERE NOW.
Pictured above is ‘The Sea Also Rises: The Exodus of Turtleton’ which is signed and numbered in an edition of 200 worldwide.
ALSO- the newest in the series is called ‘The Sea Also Rises: The Fleet Deploys’, which also measures 24×36 and is signed and numbered in a first edition of 150. Features eye-popping florescent ink throughout the print!
We asked Doyle to share his thoughts on these prints-
“The Sea Also Rises series is by far the favorite thing I get to work on. It’s been rolling off and on for 5 years now, almost as long as I’ve had Nakatomi. The whole series comes from a place of deep concern for how humans interact with their environment, and the long-range consequences of our actions today. And for whatever reason, the way my brain works means that concern comes out as Sea Monsters will rising up to take us out, to prevent further damage. These two prints were originally commissioned by PangeaSeed for their ‘Sea of Change’ series, which helps to raise awareness about several issues pertaining to the oceans, most notably the practice of shark finning.
Exodus of Turtleton depicts a city- turtle, leaving it’s post off the coast of Japan, carrying an Earth-Spirit serenely away to safety. It’s definitely one of the more up-lifting images in the series, as nothing is blowing up or being attacked! I thought a lot about my children while creating this one, and how I could use a large turtle to carry them to safety one day. Or just carry them for a few hours, so I can catch a nap.
The Fleet Deploys shows a water-witch witnessing the Hammerhead God and his children moving from the depths to unknown points on the globe. I’m not sure where they’re going, but it can’t be good news. I was a little concerned about putting the sunken ship in there, as it’s the only man-made thing in an otherwise pristine scene, but having a recognizable object gave the rest of the scene some scale. Instead of it looking like a normal sized shark and a bunch of small ones, you REALLY can feel the size of the beast.”
These big, beautiful, vibrant prints are in hand and ready for immediate shipment!
Well, for those if you who like variants, there will be twelve 3 color prints, all poorly registered. The paper has all swelled by more than I can register for. Blame it on the rain.

Superman Family: Desperate Scientists - Jor-el and Lara
"Today’s shooting in Troutdale, about a half-hour east of Portland, comes just two days after the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Which came just two days after the shooting at the courthouse in Forsyth County, Georgia.
Which came just four days after the shooting on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.
Which came just a week after the mass shooting near UC Santa Barbara.”
You just wrap your head around that for a couple of minutes, without judgement. Read that quote calmly, logically, without dogma or political leanings.
The fact that our culture allows this to continue is abhorrent. Not from an anti or pro stance, nor from a right or left, but from the simplest form of basic human existence in which one has the right to live.
America, we are doing it wrong and, until we act, we prove that we are not nearly as disturbed by that fact as we should be.
