I have been away from my site for far too long, which is a real crime because a lot of stuff has happened over the past 6 months AND a lot of stuff is happening right now that I can wait to tell you guys about. But, first, the big news — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles news!
Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with me knows of my love for TMNT. I started collected the book with the very first over-sized issues printed in glorious black and white in the early/mid 80s and has continued up to the present day. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic published by IDW Publishing has been one of the most consistently enjoyable comics on the market today (after a rough first year or so where it was getting its footing). Well, about 6 months ago the folks over at UNDER THE FLOORBOARDS, a high-end print company in the UK, contacted me about doing the artwork for a new 6-color screen-printed poster featuring a recreation of the cover to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1. Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled and jumped at the chance.
Fast-forward six months and UTF has finally released the print and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is 23.5 inches by 14 inches and screen printed in 6 colors. If you’re a fan of the work Mondo Prints does, then you’ll love the ones from UTF. Check out the image below:
Pretty sweet, huh? Now, I bet you’re asking yourself ‘Self, how do I get one of these limited to 84 high-end TMNT prints to put on my wall?’ Great question. You’ve got a couple of options. First, UTF has the standard, unsigned copies available for $65 right now on their website. Follow the link to UNDER THE FLOORBOARDS and you can pick one up RIGHT NOW!
Your other option is to pick up one of the ULTRA RARE artist proofs. There are only 10 of these bad boys and they are signed & numbered, and come with an original remarked head sketch by me! That’s right – limited edition, high-end screen-printed poster WITH an original piece of artwork on it by me. How can you go wrong there? You can’t! You can purchase one of the Artist Proofs here on Matnastos.net in the online store by following THIS link! Order NOW!!!
My other BIG TMNT news is that I was asked to do a variant cover to the TMNT comic itself! That’s right, I drew a cover to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #67. My run was very limited and I have them available NOW! I’ve got signed & numbered color cover copies (of 100) for $20, signed & numbered B&W cover copies (of 50) for $35, and signed & numbered color covers WITH a remarked original sketch for $50! You can find them in my online store NOW! Don’t waste time – they’re going fast!!!
That’s it for this morning. Check back later in the week for some more really exciting news. Take care!!
