“The Future, Conan?” Print by Jon Smith and Nakatomi Inc.

Jon Smith, a longtime friend of Nakatomi finally has his first release! This hilarious and timely silkscreen print is a send-up of the 1968 Esquire magazine cover featuring another beset-upon celebrity, Muhammad Ali.

Now if we had to bet on a fight between the two now, I’d have to give it to COCO- he’s got the reach, if not the stamina. Best part about this print? Look at the arrow feathers.

Poor Conan- suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous mis-fortune at the hands of an employer he’s been good to for the better part of TWO DECADES (Conan, I feel your pain for real). Stay strong, COCO. This 18×24 screenprint is numbered in an edition of 125. Show your support and pick one up, AVAILABLE NOW in the Art Prints section of the Nakatomi Store for only $30 plus shipping.
