HELLO Nakatomi Peoples!
It’s been 7 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide MYSTERY TUBE SALE, and people’s sanity has returned, and so we’re ready to go AROUND THE WHEEL OF MADNESS AGAIN!
We have more tubes than ever before- about 270, with a few more tubes-worth of prints waiting on stand-by…so hopefully those who want one can get one!
$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- on the Nakatomi site HERE.
So, what’s in the pool of awesome that you’ll have a shot at getting this time out?
MYSTERY SECRET DOYLE UNREAL ESTATE PRINT.
We will have a print in Doyle’s UnReal Estate Series that will ONLY be available in this tube sale. Every tube ordered will get one. What does it look like? We’re going to keep that under wraps- BUT- if you’d like a glimpse at the progress shots as it’s being created- scoot over to Doyle’s INSTAGRAM feed HERE. (Or don’t, if you want to be surprised!)
This print will never be reprinted or available anywhere else- so if you pass this up, you’ll have to go to the after-market! (don’t do that!)
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!-
Holy geez, that stuff is cray-cray. HERE’S MORE!
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 Unreal Estate 3′s screens that were in this crop, that made just crazy, haunting images! I’m a big fan of the weird Blues Brothers sheets!
FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it, if at all!
Including the above mentioned super-secret Tim Doyle print, we’ll have –
ONE copy of Bernie Wrightson’s ‘Dark as a Dungeon’ on metal- from an edition of 10! This print was only available to a super-small Facebook group, and we’re giving our last remaining copy away! This HEAVY print originally retailed for $150.
Two copies (from an edition of ONLY 2 WORLDWIDE) black and white variants of Doyle’s sold-out Blues Brothers print!
One copy of Bernie Wrightson’s Swamp Thing “Sunset” in this unique colorway- it’s the only one in existence!
Our LAST copy of the hand-embellished Black and White variant of Doyle’s official ‘BATMAN’ GCPD print!
9 line-art variants (from an edition of 9!) of Doyle’s 24×36 ‘Car Crash City’ print!
Original art from Doyle- Each of these would sell at a gallery for $300-600, and we’re JUST GIVING IT AWAY. We’ve got the original art from the Blues Brothers print, 2 Skrillex Gigposters, the Jackie Brown print from the original Quentin v. Coen art show in 2010, and ‘Bound Before Greyskull’ art from Gallery88’s He-Man show from 2009! There’s 7 pieces total going into this sale! These are all hand-drawn original pen and ink drawings on Bristol board.
SUPER BONUS CRAZY TIME PRINT-
Tyler Stout’s Lost Boys print from 2007-
We picked up this killer print from an old Mondo employee who needed to sell it, and we’re just GIVING it away to one lucky customer!
Aftermarket value on this baby tops out at $1700…dont’ say I didn’t ever give you guys nothing!
Also- did we mention- the corners…THEY ARE SHARP!
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.
Note- we may put some of these tubes up for sale on our eBay store page with a buy it now price of $50 to help lighten the load on our servers- keep an eye on our TWITTER account HERE for links and info at drop time.
Thank you all, and see you on TUESDAY!
