The entirety of my Doctor Who portrait print set! The final four (pictured at the top- Ood, Silence, Doctor 8, Doctor 6), will be given away randomly with our newest MYSTERY TUBE SALE which you can read about HERE!  The tube sale happens on TUESDAY 4/22!

Once this series wraps up, we’ll move onto something new and…SHINY.

Anatomy of a Coachella Poster!

I was asked by the fine folks at Coachella to produce an exclusive print for the event this weekend! Here’s how I did it!

Outside of the direction to draw- ‘no skulls, no drugs, no alcohol’ and to ‘maybe make it look like the mountains you see when you go to Coachella’ it was pretty wide open, which suited me fine! 

I went through older Coachella posters I saw on line, and made sure I wasn’t going to accidentally do an idea that had come before, and then I got to work!

1- I did this little BW doodle at about 4”x6” and sent it over to Jon Halperin, and he approved it without any problems! Awesome.

2- Started Drawing on an 18x24 sheet of Bristol Board in pencil, ink and brush. I really like this part, because outside of that rough doodle, I really have NO idea where this is going. The cats and laundry and Chinese lanterns are just stuff that popped into my head. The book next to the panda is titled ‘Guitar for Pandas’ because…you know. Pandas.

3- Drawing is now done! Scan that sucker in!

4- I started laying out the colors for this thing- I went back and forth a few times, but I finally settled on something that I felt was fun and different color-wise than what I’d normally do.

5- All done with the coloring in photoshop! You’ll see from the printing, that the actual colors came out more vibrant than they did on screen. Sometimes you just have to take that leap- inks don’t mix like they do on screen all the time, which is part of the thrill for me, but can really frustrate artists who don’t actually get their hands dirty in the printing process!

6- The physical printing is underway! You can see here that on the right, we’ve printed the split fountain (color blend) in the sky, and the red. And on the left, you’ll see a really nice transparent blue being thrown down on top of that, which made the ground purple, and the leaves green/blueish!  I was REALLY happy with this.

7- This is the finished acutal print!

Only 100 of these were printed for sale at the festival this weekend, and only 50 are available each weekend.

This was a lot of fun, and I’m super-happy to have been a part of it!

The new Bernie Wrightson print is ALMOST ready! Read the full production journal on THE STUFF BLOG HERE.

BIG HUG MUG-True Detective Inspired print by Jon Smith Now Available!

If you’re watching True Detective, you’re going to get this. If you’re not…well…you’ve got to correct yourself, son!

The inclusion of the BIG HUG MUG as a prop in Detective Cohle’s interrogation is just one of the little details that make this show so great.

MYSTERIOUS TUBES of uh…MYSTERY!
It’s been 7 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide MYSTERY TUBE SALE, and people’s wounds have almost healed, and so we’re ready to go AROUND THE WHEEL OF PAIN AGAIN!
We have more tubes than ever before- about 250 already packed with a few more tubes-worth of prints waiting on stand-by…so hopefully those who want one can get one!
Starting somewhere between noon and 2pm CENTRAL TIME on TUESDAY November the 12th, we’ll have tubes for purchase for $50 each. Each tube will have 5 prints in it-all suitable for framing. Some are considered ‘scratch/dent’ in that there’s minor printing flaws or a ‘soft’ corner, but nothing that won’t frame out.
The quick and dirty is this- you’ll get 5 random prints from Nakatomi artists past and present, and a shot at some really great bonus prints for $50.
No joke, this is probably the BEST DAMN tube sale we’ve ever had. So much awesome at ONE TIME.
So, what’s in the pool of awesome that you’ll have a shot at getting this time out?
There’s 2 new prints in our ONGOING FREEBIE PRINTS SERIES, pictured below-

We’re celebrating the Good Doctor’s 50th year with this series of prints, and THIS SERIES has BEEN POPULAR, EH? (each one of those links contains evidence of flipping past prints in this series…Warning!) Each of these 9×24 prints will be signed and numbered by the artist, and will ONLY be available through this tube sale! The prints are in editions of 150, and each will also have a variant metallic gold edition of 20.
You are welcome to buy as many tubes as you want- you will receive a copy of one of the exclusive print in each tube. One tube per order- we cannot combine shipping- as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!
We’ve got Test Sheets!-

Test Sheets! We’re randomly inserting a totally awesome and unique test-sheet with orders! A test sheet is like 4 posters flying at your optic nerve at ONCE! Truly a byproduct of the Silk-screen process, we run screens on scrap paper as we’re working on a project, and what you get is a random collage of color building up on a sheet of paper, until we judge that it’s ‘done’ and throw it on our stack of test sheets!  There’s an awful lot of the TOTALLY UNSEEN Unreal Estate 3′s screens that were in this crop- think of it as a preview of next year’s show!  FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it, if at all!
EXCLUSIVES!- stuff only available in THIS TUBE SALE!- 

A super-rare edition of ONLY 3 ‘Shark V. Octopus’ Lineart prints-

And an edition of 20 Line Art variants of “The Exodus of Turtleton”!
The above prints have NEVER been available for sale before and are ONLY available through this tube sale, and will NEVER be for sale in the future! Printed on super-nice French Paper, these are signed and numbered by Doyle.
ORIGINAL ART!

6 Original pen and ink line art pieces by Doyle, used for movie posters, CD art, and art prints! That’s the original art for LOGAN’S RUN over there, fyi!
BONUS CRAZY TOWN WHAT THE HELL? STUFF

WHAAAAT?- we’re including printer’s copies of Alexander Iaccarino’s Cowboy Bebop prints! We have 4 regulars, 2 Metallic Variants, and 2 LineArt variants- each of these are tracking anywhere from $250-$600 each on the aftermarket. (which is nuts!)
  
We scored these from an ex-Mondo employee who was downsizing his collection, and we’re throwing them into the sale:
Jay Ryan’s 2001, Burlesque’s King Kong, Jesse Philips’ Fistful of Dollars, and Yann Legendre’s Terminator!

Good friend of Nakatomi, Jacob Borshard was the printer on Olly Moss’ Life Well Wasted series, and as a thank you for the use of our shop, he gave us this 1/1 metallic foil variant print, which has sat undisplayed for years in our flat-file, so we’re releasing it into the wild to hopefully find a good home!
AND- DUN DUN DUUUUN!

A copy of Tyler Stout’s 24×36 LOST BOYS print from 2007!
This is only a small selection of what’s going in these tubes, with plenty more surprises!
With all this awesome, your odds of striking gold are PRETTY DANG GOOD.  Please note- these tubes are blind-packed, and we have no idea what prints are in what tubes at this point!
5 prints, $50- you can knock off gifts for 5 people all at once, letting you cruise into birthday/holiday/apocalypse season with no worries!
Get your clicky fingers ready- we’ve never had a Nakatomi tube sale NOT sell out- we’re being a little more ambiguous about the drop time, as we’ve had massive server issues during these high-demand drops before, and we’re trying to cut down on that here. But as always- it’s going to be a slog getting through check-out once word spreads that these are up for sale. Trust us- we’ll do what we can, but it’s rarely enough.
We will put these up for sale at a random time between noon and 2pm Central Time on Tuesday 11/12- and then tweet the sale link a few minutes later. You can follow Tim Doyle on twitter HERE.

Bernie Wrightson’s illustrated adaptation of Frankenstein, originally published by Marvel Comics, set a high-water mark for illustration in the early 80′s. The original art pieces disappeared into collections decades ago, and it was only through the tireless efforts of collectors like director Frank Darabont, that the original art boards were located and scanned with modern methods. Because of that process, Nakatomi has been able to offer these stunningly dark and beautiful images as hand-printed silkscreen prints.  Our first print suite of Frankenstein images was a great success, and we’re very proud to present the second set to the Nakatomi Nation.

Nakatomi will have for sale 50 matched numbered sets on this newest print suite, making these the smallest edition prints in the series by far.

Set will be on-sale HERE in the Wrightson Section of the Nakatomi store at 2pm Central Time.

This set is currently up for pre-sale to previous Suite #1 holders, and it has already over half sold-through.

Set will also include a 12×18 print of an unused title page, and a 7″ sticker!
This suite is priced at $200.
 

A few notes about this set-

-all 6 20×30 prints will be signed by Bernie Wrightson and hand-numbered.
-Printed on the same heavy 130lb Cougar Natural stock of the previous releases.
-all prints will ship at the same time by the end of November, making this an excellent holiday gift!
-domestic US orders will ship FLAT via FedEx, international orders will ship in 2 tubes via USPS.
- all prints will have matching numbers in each set.
-these prints will not be offered for individual sale.
-Purchasers of this set will get first opportunity to purchase our next Bernie Wrightson project- a super-lush 10 color recreation of one of his famous paintings in the coming months.
 
See you HERE on site at 2PM Central time on WEDNESDAY 11/6 for the sale!
