Shaky Kane comes to NAKATOMI!
We’ve been fans of Shaky Kane since we saw the cover to Bulletproof Coffin #1 (written by David Hine and Drawn by Shaky) screaming out at us on the shelf during our weekly trip to the comic shop. We immediately said “WHAT THE HELL IS THAT AND HOW MANY CAN I BUY?”
Backtracking through Shaky’s catalog brought us to the amazing ‘Monster Truck’ with it’s strange, pop-surrealist landscapes rendered in flat, day-glow colors- which are perfect for screenprinting. That’s when we here at Nakatomi realized we had to publish his work as prints. HAD. TO.
We tracked down the elusive artist, who lived far away in the little known GREAT BRITAIN and after much bribery and horse-trading, he agreed to let us!
SO- Tuesday 7/2 around 2pm Central Standard Time (CST), we will release this print “THE HATEFUL DEAD” as well as a limited edition T-shirt available only on the site! The print measures 18×24, is limited to 100 hand-numbered copies, and comes with a 4×6 ‘Certificate of Reality’ signed by Shaky Kane himself!
While we had the screens available, we ran a small variant edition of 25 Florescent Black-Light prints-
Since florescent inks are notoriously hard to capture on a computer screen, we also snapped a pic while they were being printed-
Trust us, this thing is so bright- it, much like Shaky’s work, will MELT YOUR EYEBALLS.
(Please note, Nakatomi is not responsible for melted eyeballs.)
Available in a black and silver 100% cotton t-shirts, Nakatomi will only have 100 of each for sale!
Shirts and Prints will be listed for sale around 2PM CST on Nakatomi HERE, or by searching ‘Shaky’ in the store!
