Last FEBRUARY, artist Nick Derington launched his BOSS FIGHT Kickstarter (see the project here) and that project took off like a rocket-propelled grenade!

Here we are, half a year later, and We’re back at it again with a BRAND NEW set of Boss Fight prints!

BOSS FIGHT 2: ODE TO ID

These detail shots from the new 3-print set will give you a PRETTY GOOD indicator of what this set is all about- those 90’s era First Person Shooters that totally revolutionized gaming and pop-culture, and almost kept me from graduating high school! (Seriously, how was I supposed to get work done with these games out there?!?)

The full 12×24″ images will be revealed when the project goes live THIS TUESDAY. We’ll tweet the link when it’s up either at the Nakatomi account HERE or artist Nick Derington’s account HERE.

This set looks AMAZING in person, and we can’t wait to share it with the world!

Keep your eyes peeled on the twitter account, and thank you all for making the last project such a raging success- and we hope to see you for this one as well!

THE CROW- Devil’s Night print release by RHYS COOPER!

Rhys Cooper was one of the first artists we contacted when we started our official series of THE CROW prints inspired by James O’barr’s classic independent comic series that itself in turn inspired the 1994 film.

This is truly a case of ‘good things are worth waiting for’ as this print is a MONSTER.

Measuring 12×36, 5-colors with a secret glow layer,  this print is a timed-release with a max numbered edition of 200 including artist copies.

The glow layer will not be revealed on-line.

The sale period will go from NOW, until Midnight 11/1 central time, possibly sooner.

After the sale closes, we will print, pack and ship these- expect them to all be shipped within 2-3 weeks of the end of the sale.

THE CROW is available NOW HERE in the art prints section of the Nakatomi store.

This is my new print for UnReal Estate- “The Big Battle”- titled after a track on Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ album. (measurement 12x24 inches, signed and numbered in a limited edition)

I was listening to that rather somber song the other day, and I thought about how after a war, the field of battle is just littered with wrecked vehicles and abandoned posts. And as my brain is hopelessly wired to permanent 'nerd’ setting, I thought about how some of the greatest sci-fi battlefields must look like after everyone has moved on. Watching Empire in that context, I was taken by the idea that Echo base and wrecked At-Ats and Snowspeeders would just be dotting that frozen landscape for all of eternity, with only the native Taun-Tauns and Wampas to see them. ANYWAY-


HOW TO GET THIS PRINT- it will be included in every single 'MYSTERY TUBE’ going out as part of the sale on NAKATOMI this coming Tuesday 11/18. You can READ MORE ABOUT THAT HERE.

This print, and 4 other random ones, for just $50- what a deal!

The art was hand-drawn on Bristol board, and then scanned and colored. You’ll notice a spot of rasberry jam around the Ion cannon- my kids did that. Note- prints will not include rasberry jam.

Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein

Bernie Wrightson is a legend of pen and ink. Having worked in comic books for over 40 years now, Wrightson is a legend in the industry, and an illustrator supreme. His illustrated version of the original Frankenstein novel by Mary Shelley was created over a seven year period, and originally published by Marvel Comics in 1983.  His attention to detail and painstaking linework has inspired a generation of illustrators working in comics, film, and has even left its mark on the world of screen printed art.

If you’re unfamiliar with his name- you have most certainly seen his work. He has done creature design and concepts for such great films as Ghosbusters (notably- the Library Ghost), The Mist, and Serenity. Wrightson’s comic work found itself animated in the original Heavy Metal movie, and his illustrations for Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf novel helped propel the book to screen as Silver Bullet.  And he’s the co-creator of Swamp Thing!

It is with great honor that Nakatomi can present the inaugural release in a “Frankenstein” series of high-quality slik-screen prints by Bernie.  The original pen and ink drawings of this set are in art-collector’s archives around the world, owned by fans and artists and film directors alike. These prints are shot from scans of those originals- used in the 25th anniversary edition of the book.

“A Filthy Process” is a 20×30 print on thick 130lb Cougar Natural Cover, signed by Bernie in a numbered edition of only 100.

We had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Bernie since he relocated to Austin a little while back, and he’s been a joy to work with.

“A Filthy Process” will be available on 3/12 TUESDAY around 2pm Central Time on NakatomiInc.com in the Art Prints section.

Prints are in hand and ready for immediate shipment.

Detail pictures of the actual print below- attempting to highlight the staggering line work and detail-

Thank you- see you HERE on the site at 2pm Central time on Tuesday 3/12.

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!
