2010 holiday sale schedule

Hi, Friends!

‘Tis (almost) the season to be jolly, so I decided to take a serious stab at providing some holiday shopping opportunities this season. Below, you will find all of the sales and promotions that I will be running at NateDuval.com this Holiday Season. Thanks again for all of the support this year, it has been one to remember for sure.

===============================

SALE #1- FREE International Shipping-
Running November 25 – November 30, 2010

During this time period, I will be offering ALL International Orders FREE shipping on orders over $50.

Pretty simple, right ?

Simply live in NOT North America, buy $50 or more worth of goods from my shop during that time period and I will refund your shipping costs in full. Merci beaucoup!

I hope running this sale will allow you International folks a chance to get these in time for the Holidays. I will ship them immediately, but I cannot be held responsible if they do don’t arrive in time, as the customs and international shipping process is out of my hands, and rests soley on the shoulder of the post office 🙂

Sale #2- FREE Domestic Shipping-
Running November 30 – December 6, 2010.

That’s right, America (and you too, Canada) just some good ol’ fashioned, sit-around-the-open-fire-and-roast-your-chestnuts FREE, domestic shipping on all placed orders Nov. 30 – Dec 7.

This special will be similar to the way “hot deals” work on Amazon. Basically, each day I will be selecting various items in the shop to be the featured item of the day, in which it will be for sale at a nicely discounted price. During this time period, I will be sporadically adding things to the sale, sometimes just for an hour or two at a time. I also plan to release single copies of some rarer, older prints during this process as well, so stay tuned for sure!

To stay in the loop on all updates and announcements of this sale, please follow me on twitter.

Thanks again for all the support and have a Happy Holidays.

phish- official atlantic city posters

It’s always an honor to get to work with my friends over at Phish on projects of ANY size, but this Fall I was lucky enough to work on a ton of stuff for the most excellent Fall Tour.

Aside from designing 8 custom ticket designs for the lottery-only, mail order ticketing system, I also contributed designs in the form of event tees and limited edition ticket magnets. (I will post about those in the next few weeks when I get my samples in.)

I was extremely excited to get the call to make a SET of three posters for the incredible, end of tour/Halloween run for the three shows at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

While all three night prints sold out VERY fast at the shows (before the music even started, in fact) I do have a very small number of each print to sell on my own and I will be releasing those prints tomorrow afternoon, Friday November 5, 2010 at 1pm est.

They will be for sale mostly as a complete 3 poster set ($150 + shipping & handling) and individually in EXTREMLEY limited quantities ($50 each + shipping & handling)

This will all happen tomorrow in my Etsy Shop. Please pre-register for your free Etsy account today as it will make your checkout process a bit quicker as I expect these to sell out very fast.

I chose to sell these through my Etsy shop, based on their built in inventory control they have on the site to avoid headaches for both you and I with over-selling or site-crashing, etc.

Be sure to follow me on Twitter for future onsale announcements, new work and behind the scenes process pics of my art and printing process as well.

Good luck!

Hand-Made Alphabet Print- The Process! Part 1

I had a lot of fun making my recent Black Keys poster. I was very pleased with the character and movement I was able to achieve with just a pair of scissors, some shapes and a few magazine pages.

I have also wanted to created another alphabet print for some time now, so I decided to sit down and have a go at creating a hand-cut alphabet print, using only basic shapes and my hands.

I began the process by sketching the alphabet using only basic shapes and forms.  Once I was happy with my rough solution for each letterform, I grabbed a pair of scissors and one sheet each of red and black construction paper.

Using the sketches as a rough guide, I quickly freehand-cut basic shapes in varying sizes and forms and began arranging them until I was happy with their resemblance to each letter of the alphabet.

Using packing tape, I simply taped each letter to one, Letter sized piece of computer paper to hold it in place.  I repeat this process until I am happy with all 26 letters.

Next, I will scan the two pieces of paper containing my alphabet into the computer, and prepare the art for printing.

Working with the two different color papers will allow me to easily color separate the images and prepare them for screen printing.

Once into the computer, I enlarge the art and prepare for press.

I will be hand-printing this art in a few different sizes and colors next time I head to the print shop.

I will continue documenting the printing/creative process in a few days when it goes to print.

Here is a mock-up of one of the color schemes that this will be printed in.

sweet ‘n low

It was with great pleasure and honor that I got to work with the fine folks over at Mother NYC in Illustrating these ads for Sweet ‘N Low.

Now appearing in major publications and billboards nationwide.

If you spot them in your town, please send me photos, I’d love to see them!
