This month’s Mondo gallery showing of Laurent Durieux’s work was super popular with over 100 people waiting in line in the cold 37 degree weather, some of whom had been waiting since around 9:00 in the morning.  Laurent’s work has always captivated me since he seems to bring in such an enormous amount of depth while retaining a large amount of detail.  You really feel like you’re looking into the window of the world of the film when you look at one of his pieces of art.

My  favorites of the show were the original colored pencil pieces.  They had such imagination and depth in them, it was hard realizing that they were such tiny pieces of art that were barely the size of my hand.  At the same time, I really enjoyed the Back to the Future 1 and 2 pieces with their retro sci-fi tones.  I was disappointed when I did not see the third piece for the third film.  Hopefully someday Laurent will complete the trilogy.  Hit the jump to check out over 60 pictures from the show.

Laurent Durieux is starting to piss me off.  I was all set to limit how much I wanted to spend at his first solo show at the Mondo gallery in Austin, but everything I’ve seen has been spectacular.  I’m starting to worry that my bank account is going to take a serious hit when the gallery opens tomorrow night.  If you’re not aware, Durieux has been creating amazing screenprints over the past few years, but his recent work has been on another level.

Thanks to our friends at Mondo, we’re happy to be able to premiere a few of Durieux’s screenprints that will go onsale tomorrow night.  We’ve got his posters for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, Vertigo (regular and variant) and Rear Window (regular and variant).  Hit the jump for the images and info.

Two new Mondo posters are dipping into some 20th century icons for inspiration.  First up is a nostalgic version of the animated feature Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.  Originally released in 1993, the film finds Batman wrongly accused of a series of mob murders.  This new poster shows him facing off against the vigilante assassin behind it all.  The second Mondo poster takes inspiration from David Fincher’s 1999 film, Fight Club.  The first rule of Fight Club is … well, you know, so you’ll just have to hit the jump to take a look at the upcoming Mondo posters.

Mondo has a habit of commissioning great posters for older films that oftentimes eclipse the official artwork that was released when the movies opened in theaters, and today’s pair of Mondo unveilings sure come close to doing just that.  Tomorrow at some random time, Mondo will be putting Ken Taylor‘s Where the Wild Things Are and Matt Taylor‘s Brick on sale for the general public.  The Mondo folks have made the artwork available today so fans can get a peek at what they might be able to purchase (if they have lightening fast reflexes, that is), and both posters are pretty stellar.  Hit the jump to take a look at the prints, and as always, follow Mondo on Twitter for the onsale announcement sometime tomorrow.

A new pair of Mondo posters inspired by Desmond Davis’ 1981 fantasy epic Clash of the Titans is scheduled to drop some time tomorrow.  Even if you’re not a rabid poster fanatic, these two are pretty cool, especially since they bring the famous creature creations of the late, great Ray Harryhausen to life in vivid detail.  Artists Francesco Francavilla and Dave Rapoza are the contributors this time around, and while I certainly have my favorite, they’re both worth a look.  Hit the jump to check them out.

Having watched Tales from the Crypt on television (along with the several spin-off movies on VHS) in the 90s when I was younger, I had a vague yet fond recollection of it once Mondo announced this year’s October gallery show.  While this year’s show was not as absolutely crazy as last year’s October Universal Monsters show (where mofo’in Drew Struzan made a guest appearance), it was very fun and different in its own right.  Overall, fans of the Tales from the Crypt show or comic will be happy to check out the art and posters.  Hit the jump for tons of pictures and more info on the show.
