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.

BIG HUG MUG measures 12×12, and is signed and numbered by artist Jon Smith in an edition of 200.  Each 6-color print features a glow in the dark layer, brimming with detail that will make you feel like you’re mainlining the secret truth of the universe.

Available only for a limited time, but Time is a Flat Circle, so you might have another shot the next time around.

AVAILABLE NOW HERE IN THE JON SMITH SECTION of the Nakatomi Store!

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.

TAXI DRIVER by Yann Legendre
Paris-based designer Yann Legendre brings us this striking print, adapted from his cover to the French edition of the TAXI DRIVER novel!
From Yann-
“In 1974, Paul Schrader begins work on a screenplay that is going to change his life: the story of a young lonely man, Travis Bickle, ex Marines, who tries to escape from his boring life and his loneliness by becoming a cab driver.
This story is partly inspired by his own life and experiences. For developing the story, Schrader start working with a poet very popular in New York back then, Richard Elman.
 
More talented than Schrader, Elman develops in parallel to the screenplay, a novel, based on the character of Travis Bickle: the journal of this young naive man who discover day after day the violence and the perversion of the New York’s life… He learns the self-defense and start to do his own justice in the streets of Manhattan.”
 
This limited edition 18″x 24″ 4-color hand-pulled silkscreen art print will be signed and numbered in an edition of only 50 world wide.

Available NOW for purchase HERE.

FLESH EMPIRE Full Show Preview

This Thursday night, here in Austin, Foxing Quarterly and Nakatomi are co-hosting an art event featuring food, music, and the amazing art of YANN LEGENDRE.

You can RSVP for the event on Facebook HERE.

Yann is a French illustrator and designer that was originally brought to our attention by the amazing JAY RYAN back when Nakatomi founder, Tim Doyle, was art directing the Mondo series of posters in 2008.  This brilliant series of illustrations were originally released in France in very small sold-out editions of 10.  Nakatomi is very proud to present these amazing images to a larger audience in a popular edition.

His illustrations have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Perspective Magazine, among others. He is the art director of the French magazine Inculte. And he regularly creates illustrations for Universal Music in London, The Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, Janus Films, and The Criterion Collection in New York.

Each of these art prints are hand-printed silk-screen images- signed by the artist in numbered editions of 50 each.

 These images are extremely powerful and evocative- and represent a unique talent- a singular voice in art that we’ve not seen before in our corner of the silk-screen print collector’s community. Flesh Empire is stark and beautiful, alluring and eerie all at the same time.

Yann has been fantastic to work with on this project and very giving of his time and information. Here’s what the award winning illustrator had to say about this series of images-

“I wanted to explore – how our standards of perception of “Beauty” – in the near future  - are going to change… based on the technology progress, religions, cultures… and how the body is going to react, adapt…  each of these illustrations is an alternative possibility of that.”

Nakatomi is also offering special color variants of the entire series- each only an edition of 10- a variant suggested by Yann as a collaboration between his work and the the Nakatomi print shop- featuring the beautiful randomness of the ‘split fountain’ color blend technique.

Each of these color-blend prints are completely unique- no two are alike. Each are extremely limited- editions are only 10- with only 8 of each being available to the public.

All prints will be available at the event, and any remaining prints will then available the following week on the Nakatomi site.

If you’re in the Austin area, do come out to the event- Information below-
