QUENTIN vs COEN!

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!

“Gojira Vs. The Smoke Monster” PROCESS!

This print is ON SALE NOW HERE!

 While you’re here…we wanted to show off some of the behind-the-scenes process pictures for this great new print!

“Gojira Vs. The Smoke Monster” is an 18×24 4 color hand-printed silkscreen poster- signed and numbered by the artist in a first edition of only 150 worldwide.

1-Like almost all of Doyle’s prints, it starts with a hand-drawn line-art image, done in pencil, brush and ink, and felt-tip pen.  This print was drawn on a sheet of 12×16 Strathmore brand Bristol board- it’s a really great surface to work on, and it can stand up to a lot of abuse from wet media, as you’re about to see.  Once the line-art is completed, it is scanned in at 600 dpi, and then…

2-Doyle hand-tones the original art board with watercolor and gouache paint, applied with a Windsor Newton Series 7 Sable brush, size 4.  Blocking in the grey tones and values this way  gives the final product a more organic appearance than you would normally get from the flat-color aesthetic of screenprinting.  That hand-painted image is now scanned in and lined up with the original line-art, and then bitmapped into tiny little dots, which then makes it suitable for screenprinting.  Then, Doyle digitally lays in the colors in Photoshop and sends the layers off for burning onto screens!

3-Here you see the first 3 layers of the print down on the actual paper.  The ink is still wet!  First color down was the warm grey, then the red, and then transparent black ink!  As you can see in the face and hands, the watercolor detailing on the skin is pushed back to the transparent black layer to soften it up a bit, and make it look a little bit softer.  The rest of the detail is on the black ink layer, as you can see below!

Here’s the finished print, before it gets trimmed down to 18×24. (We print on 20×26 sheets to give us a handling edge and room for registration marks.)  You can see at the top of the sheet the color notes and print instructions to the printers!

ON SALE NOW! Pick one up today HERE.

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!
