JSBX vs. SHAKY KANE!

We were approached by JSBX to help them get a gigposter made, and the amazingly unreal SHAKY KANE stepped up to the hypothetical plate!

This SCREAMINGLY BRIGHT 5-color hand-printed poster is hand-numbered in an edition of 200, and each one comes with a signed ‘CERTIFICATE OF REALITY’ from good ‘ol SHAKY himself!

These prints are available RIGHT NOW in the Gigposters section of the Nakatomi Store RIGHT HERE. Prints are in hand for immediate shipment!

“A Torrent of Light Into Our Dark World” by Bernie Wrightson

This is a special one, folks.

This stunningly beautiful image was created over 30 years ago, but never actually included in the final publication of Bernie Wrightson’s illustrated version of Marry Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Only printed once in the rarely seen and long out-of-print “The Lost Frankenstein” paperback from 20 years ago, this masterpiece is relatively obscure (undeservedly so) compared to the rest of this body of work.

The final print measures 20×30 and is signed and numbered in an edition of only 160. There are no AP copies of this print in existence. 110 of these prints are already shipped out to subscribers of the Frankenstein Series, leaving us only 50 copies to sell to the general public.

At the time of this writing Subscriptions are still available HERE. If this print sells out upon release, Full Subscriptions will no longer be available.

“A Torrent of Light Into Our Dark World” will be available on the Nakatomi site at 2PM Central Time in the store pages HERE.

On a personal note, we’re completely impressed with how amazing Bernie has been to work with on this project- the man is a living legend, and yet he’s always accessible and kind- a true gentleman in every regard.

Also- his studio has a bunch of skulls in it, and that’s pretty rad and a little scary. Bonus!

“Features As Beautiful” Frankenstein art print by Bernie Wrightson- onsale WEDNESDAY 6/12

It is with supreme honor and delight that Nakatomi is releasing the next print in Bernie’s amazing Frankenstein series!

“Features As Beautiful” measures 20×30 and is signed by Bernie in a hand-numbered edition of 150 worldwide. 100 of these prints are already spoken for through subscriptions, so only 50 of these prints will be available to the public!

These prints will go up for sale on Wednesday 6/12 at 2PM Central Time in the ART PRINTS section of the Nakatomi Store HERE.

NOTE- If you purchased a subscription last month- this print will ship in July, along with next month’s release.

If you would still like to purchase a subscription, we do have a TINY amount left (like 5) that were set aside in case of lost or damaged orders- now that orders have been landing safely, we’re opening them back up for sale. If interested, please let us know through the Contact Form.

Robert again was asked to work closely with THE MOUNTAIN GOATS’ John Darnielle to create two new tour posters for their just wrapped ‘Nameless Dark’ tour. Both prints are 18×24 silkscreens, signed and numbered by Robert in editions of 500 each. Nakatomi and Robert will only have 25 of these for sale, as the other 475 sold out on tour! (Crazy!) 

You can get them HERE.

Spiderwoman and me- age 4.

This was taken at the Sanger-Harris store at the newly opened Collin Creek Mall in Plano, Texas back in 1981. I remember the taking of this photograph very clearly.

The mall opening was a pretty big deal, and for some reason, Sanger-Harris paid the Dallas Times Herald and Marvel Comics to do a promotional comic book (pictured above) about the opening of the mall. This was part of the same Times-Herald Promotion that brought about ‘The X-Men at the State Fair of Texas’ comic book around the same time.

But yes- that is 4 year old me. And my course was set from that point forward. All nerd- all the time.

MUCHO MACHISMO!

New prints by Nakatomi regulars Nick Derington and Jon Smith from the hit MUCHO MACHISMO art show from SpokeArt Oakland in September!

COMIC COVER SKETCHES! My local comic shop, Austin Books and Comics wanted me to do some cover doodles for them to sell in-store, and I had a brand new set of COPIC markers burning a hole in my brain, begging to be used, so I decided to give it a whirl! I thought I’d do a couple and call it quits, but I’m really having a blast making these!  Lots of fun.  The trick is to do them fast enough so you can sell them for a reasonable price, but the markers are so damn cool, I keep noodling with ‘em…

Something I’m working on for a thing later this month…
