So recently I decided to embark on the mission to do an alphabet series. The plan is to draw every letter of the alphabet and screen print them. As I finish each one, I’ll be posting them here. I will also put them in my Etsy store for purchase, individually at first, but once all 26 letters are completed, I’ll probably make a few sets of all the letters available. I haven’t decided yet so can an eye out.
In the meantime, check out the first letter in the series, the Letter A of course! You can pick one up here!
P.S. Also be sure to check me out on Instagram @nickvillalva. I post a lot of process pictures of stuff I’m working on.

A few weeks ago I noticed that I was the topic of discussion in a post on the blog, Artisan des Arts. Unfortunately I don’t know much about the author, but from what I gather, she is a teacher and over the summer she taught at an art camp for kids. She also had some pretty nice things to say about my work, so it’s probably safe to say that she is pretty cool.
For one of the projects she had her kids do, she used me as an inspiration and had the kids study my illustration style and try it out for themselves. Afterwards, she posted some of the drawings they made and I must admit, they are pretty awesome. So much in fact that I wanted to share/mention them here. I also wanted to say thanks to the mysterious teacher. I really do appreciate the kind words and be sure to tell your students they rock.
Here are some of the illustrations the kids did:
Check out this new print I did from the other week. Out of all the prints I’ve been doing lately, this one is probably my favorite. It’s a 3 color screen print (Burgundy, Gold, and Black) on Factory Green French paper.
Prints available in my shop here.

A couple of months ago my friends in Hundredth asked me to do a tour admat for their summer tour with Counterparts, State Champs, Being As An Ocean, and Heart to Heart. I would have posted this earlier but, I wanted to wait for them to announce the tour before I posted the artwork. The other day they finally announced the tour which starts July 12th in Charleston, SC and ends August 2nd in Toledo, OH. Check out their facebook for all the tour dates.
