Take one glance at my family room and it’s obvious the impact that Mondo has had on my collecting habits. Framed prints line my walls, many of which are either Mondo releases or works from artists that I became familiar with while perusing the gallery’s archives. Safe to say, then, that it was an absolute privilege to be able to attend the inaugural MondoCon in Austin this Saturday. Held at The Marchesa Hall & Theater, the convention boasted a more intimate setting than convention goers may be accustomed to. In reality, you could cover the two halls that made up the “convention floor” in a matter of minutes if you just wanted to get a quick overview of everything the exhibitors had to offer. Like with any Tyler Stout print, though, those who took time to stop and admire the details were rewarded with a variety of items from some of today’s best artists, designers, composers, and more.
