This week marks the release of the final (we think) J.R.R. Tolkein film of the Peter Jackson era, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  In concert with the film’s debut, the folks at Mondo are releasing a few new custom prints, including The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by Ken Taylor and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug by Nicolas Delort.  The main event, though, is the final poster in artist Aaron Horkey’s three-year Lord of the Rings series, an absolutely gorgeous print for The Fellowship of the Ring.  This thing is incredibly rich with color and detail, and I imagine it’ll sell out very fast.  All three posters will be available at a random time on Tuesday, December 16th.

Get a closer look at the Hobbit Mondo posters after the jump along with Horkey’s stunning Fellowship of the Ring print.

Mondo Unveils Posters for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and BRICK by Ken Taylor and Matt Taylor

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.

Top 10 Alternative Movie Posters of 2013 Featuring Artists Tyler Stout, Aaron Horkey, Ken Taylor, Gabz, Matt Taylor and More

I know what you’re thinking – not another Top Ten list.  And yes, I know how you feel.  I’ve been looking at all these Top Ten lists everywhere, and as an alternative movie poster connoisseur – not in the pretentious way, mind you – I have been wondering to myself if anyone shared my opinion having seen this year’s expansive list of prints.  This year alone has been insane as far as silkscreen movie poster releases have gone.  Mondo has put out more prints than ever (just compare this with this), Gallery 1988 started stepping it up a bit once they saw how many new prints were being released, new movie poster galleries are getting into the game, and then you have private commissions.

Private commissions are a somewhat new thing.  Groups of collectors form up, pool their cash together, email an artist, and then see what they can do.  Some of the prints that come out of the private commissions are good, and, to be blunt, most are bad.  But the ones that do work out are amazing.  As such, a few are in my Top Ten list.  I’ve had a finger on the pulse of the alternate movie poster world, and I will share with you what I have found.  After the jump, check out the Top Ten alternative movie posters of 2013.

With the opening of Mondo’s new gallery show celebrating EC Comics and Tales From the Crypt Friday night in Austin, different artwork associated with the show has begun popping up online.  I grew up watching Tales From the Crypt, so I am very happy that Mondo is letting us premiere a print from the show and it just happens to be from one of my favorite artists, Ken Taylor.  Check out the regular and variant screenprints plus all the details for the show after the jump.

Mondo Unveils Incredible Posters for MAN OF STEEL by Martin Ansin and Ken Taylor

by     Posted 1 year, 190 days ago

If you’re a fan of Mondo posters but always fail at landing something on the drop (the term for when a poster is made available to purchase), I’ve got some fantastic news for you.  Mondo is releasing some incredible posters by Ken Taylor and Martin Ansin for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, and one of them is being offered as a timed release!  That means you’ll have three days to purchase the poster.  The last time they offered a timed release was Olly Moss‘ poster for The Dark Knight Rises last summer and they sold almost ten thousand.  I fully expect the Ansin poster to sell double that.  Not only because the poster is one of the best that Mondo has ever released, but also because after you see the movie this weekend, you’ll absolutely want to hang it on your wall.

As I’ve said many times on Twitter, Man of Steel is one of the best superhero films I’ve ever seen and easily one of the best films of the year.  Hit the jump to check out the incredible posters and for more info on how to buy them.

When the Mondo Gallery’s Stout & Taylor showcase opened last month, it was hard not to look at the crowd assembled outside and think, “Tonight, there are two types of collectors in the world:  those who are getting publicly shitfaced in advance of some seriously reckless spending somewhere in downtown Austin…and everyone else”.

Well, for those that couldn’t make it there that night, there’s good news:  the Mondo Gallery has announced that a number of Taylor’s Stout & Taylor prints will be made available to all via the official Mondo store.  Wanna know what’ll be available and what it’s gonna cost you?  Meet me after the jump, Peaches.

What we’ve got here is your classic “Good News/Bad News” situation.  Bad news first:  an impressive variety of real-world shenanigans (from geographical shenanigans to technological shenanigans , we saw it all this weekend) conspired to keep the following interview from getting in front of you sooner…but don’t reach for those sleeping pills and dry-cleaning bags just yet, folks:  there’s good news, too.

Namely this:  while you might’ve had to wait a few extra days for this interview to go live, I’m prepared to wager that you’ll find it to be well worth the wait.  It would not be hyperbole to say that the resulting writeup—which you’re about to read– is one of the most-interesting, most informative interviews I’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting for Collider.  See what I mean after the jump, folks.

The Mondo guys have been killing it over the past few days, haven’t they?  They kicked things off on Sunday night, dropping fourteen new posters during the Oscars, the last of which turned out to be Tyler Stout’s heavily-rumored/desired Django Unchained print.  The following afternoon, Team Mondo kept the party going by announcing that they’d teamed with HBO for a Game of Thrones-themed showcase slated to hit the Mondo Gallery on March 8th.  But then– just as everyone was absorbing that news—Mondo dropped an even bigger bombshell:  there’d be a second show opening at the Mondo Gallery next month, as well.

Limited Paper Video: Walking Tour of Mondo’s IN PROGRESS Gallery Show [Updated With Pics]

by     Posted 1 year, 327 days ago

Mondo-In-Progress-gallery-show-slice

Before Mondo opened up the doors on In Progress (its first Mondo Gallery show of 2013), no one wondered about which movies would be covered by the show’s artists:  every piece of In Progress was based on previously-released Mondo works, so there’d be no surprises (or so we thought).  And no one was wondering about the quality of the artists themselves, because any lineup that includes Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor, Laurent Durieux, Jock, Jay Ryan, and Aaron Horkey is a lineup worth paying attention to.

Indeed, In Progress sounded awesome.  But there was one lingering question that seemed to be on everyone’s mind:  how much were these pieces going to cost?  Find out the answer to that question—and any other lingering questions you might have—after the jump.

Update: We’ve added some pictures from the show after the videos.
