And this print, the newest in the series is called ‘The Sea Also Rises: The Fleet Deploys’, which also measures 24×36 and is signed and numbered in a first edition of 150. Features eye-popping florescent ink throughout the print!

We asked Doyle to share his thoughts on these prints-

The Sea Also Rises series is by far the favorite thing I get to work on. It’s been rolling off and on for 5 years now, almost as long as I’ve had Nakatomi. The whole series comes from a place of deep concern for how humans interact with their environment, and the long-range consequences of our actions today. And for whatever reason, the way my brain works means that concern comes out as Sea Monsters will rising up to take us out, to prevent further damage. These two prints were originally commissioned by PangeaSeed for their ‘Sea of Change’ series, which helps to raise awareness about several issues pertaining to the oceans, most notably the practice of shark finning.

Exodus of Turtleton depicts a city- turtle, leaving it’s post off the coast of Japan, carrying an Earth-Spirit serenely away to safety. It’s definitely one of the more up-lifting images in the series, as nothing is blowing up or being attacked!  I thought a lot about my children while creating this one, and how I could use a large turtle to carry them to safety one day.  Or just carry them for a few hours, so I can catch a nap.

The Fleet Deploys shows a water-witch witnessing the Hammerhead God and his children moving from the depths to unknown points on the globe. I’m not sure where they’re going, but it can’t be good news. I was a little concerned about putting the sunken ship in there, as it’s the only man-made thing in an otherwise pristine scene, but having a recognizable object gave the rest of the scene some scale. Instead of it looking like a normal sized shark and a bunch of small ones, you REALLY can feel the size of the beast.”

HEY!- send me that Gigantor figure!

For the last couple of years, we here at Nakatomi have had a great relationship with local shops and galleries both here in Austin and all over the world.  From Tokyo to Edinburgh, from London to Paris, galleries and shops have carried our prints to great success.

If you, or someone you know, owns a cool little shop or gallery that you think SHOULD carry our prints, give us a shout though our CONTACT FORM and we’ll give them a look!

We ship product quickly and safely, and keep you stocked when needed!  We started with a small rack of prints at Parts & Labour here in ATX-back in 2010, and within a few short months, the prints had sold so well, they opened up a new shop to sell JUST prints- SHARK ATTACK, which now carries a full range of Nakatomi art-prints and a ton from other local artists!  That’s a fairly good testament to how these prints do when you get ‘em in front of people!

So- do give us an email, and don’t forget a link to your store’s website if you got one!

Follow NAKATOMIDICKS on Instagram!

We here at Nakatomi have our own silkscreen print shop. You can check it all out here.

We screen print posters every day. We also make a quick dick-related drawing referencing the poster we are about to print on the dry erase board.  We said to ourselves- “Selves, this is too good not to share with the world. The world must see our dick drawings of pop-art.”

And so, @nakatomidicks was born. There’s about 25 images up there now, with more coming all the time. (Pun not intended.) 

If you’ve ever wondered what would a hammerhead shark look like with dicks coming out of it’s head, or how about a giant penis riding a horse?…well, this is the page for you.

My personal favorite is this Baizley-inspired apple/dick-worm thing from the recent Pop-Sub set-

baizley dicks

Also- the color mixing directions up there- “Fucking Dark Purple”.

FOLLOW NAKATOMIDICKS HERE.

We’re making the world a better place, clearly.
