Although things were quiet on the Limited Paper front this week, one shouldn’t assume that it’s been quiet all over in Poster World: in truth, things are just as busy as they were throughout October…it’s just that many things have been going down behind the scenes. Indeed, there’s reason to believe—whether you’re a casual collector, a frothing-at-the-mouth true believer who feel s compelled to buy everything, or if you’re just now making the decision to get into the absurdly entertaining hobby of print-collecting—that the rest of 2012 is gonna be (to quote former first lady Nancy Reagan) “absotively redonkulous up in hurr, bitches”.
But let’s not dwell on what may or may not be happening in the weeks ahead: instead, let’s focus on what’s happening in the immediate future. Wanna know when you can get a crack at the remaining prints that didn’t sell out at Mondo’s Universal Monsters Gallery show? Are you a Mass Effect fan looking to prove your love for that franchise via the purchase and display of fancy-colored paper? Wanna another head’s up regarding Limited Paper’s next giveaway? It’s all after the jump, folks.
Earlier this month (time is just clippin’ by, ain’t it?), the Mondo guys opened the doors on what would turn out to be their biggest, most-jam-packed, celeb-studded, bank-account-draining Mondo Gallery show ever: the Universal Monsters Show. Featuring new artwork by Jason Edmiston, Ken Taylor, Martin Ansin, Kevin “Kevin Dong” Tong, and the incomparable Drew Struzan, the show was a runaway hit.
But what about all the poster fans out there who aren’t fortunate enough to live in the one sane city in all of Texas? Are they gonna get a shot at some of the prints that debuted during that show? Of course you are! But don’t you worry your pretty little head about that, Princess: instead, meet me after the jump to find out how you can pick up five (!!!) of the prints from Mondo Gallery’s Universal Monsters Show sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Whenever Mondo opens a new gallery show, it’s always an event: special guests drop by, people fly in from all over the damn place, lines start forming days in advance, collectors everywhere deliver crippling blows to their bank accounts (if you’ve been in town for one of these openings before, you know how much of a circus it can be). But when the Mondo guys announced that their show would be Universal Monsters-themed, it was generally assumed that their latest showcase would turn into the biggest circus the Mondo Gallery had ever seen…and the assembled mass of fans did not disappoint.
In fact, a few brave souls kicked off the festivities a day before the Mondo Gallery’s Universal Monsters Show opened, traveling across downtown Austin to take part in the first-ever Limited Paper/Shaman Body Mods Tattooapalooza. What went down, who got inked, and what did the resulting tattoos look like? Find out after the jump, my fellow limited-paper fanatics.
Last night, after a months of speculation (and—for those that slept outside the Mondo Gallery in anticipation of the event—after a few restless nights on the sidewalk lining 41st and Guadalupe in downtown Austin, TX) the good folks at Mondo finally opened the doors on their Universal Monsters Gallery show. With nearly 20 new prints on sale, over 50 original pieces of artwork, and surprise appearances from legendary poster artist Drew Struzan and Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont, the show was a smash success.
Wanna see some images from the show and hear what Limited Paper thought about the whole thing? Meet me after the jump, folks.
We’ve just about made it to Mondo’s Universal Monsters gallery show—their biggest show ever, opening this Friday and playing home to nearly 20 posters and 50-plus originals (according to Mondo’s creative director, Justin Ishmael, at tonight’s 3D screening of Creature From The Black Lagoon)—but that doesn’t mean all of Mondo’s other business has been put on hold. In fact, they’re going to be dropping the remaining prints from their recent New York Comic-Con appearance tomorrow morning. Wanna know what’s going on sale, what it’ll cost you, and what it looks like? Meet me after the jump, folks.
If you’ve been following along with us here at Limited Paper, you know that we’re currently knee-deep in Fantastic Fest 2012, right here in our hometown of Austin, TX. As everyone expected, Mondo’s going to have a huge presence at Fantastic Fest this year, dropping new posters for Dredd 3D, Room 237, Looper, and…well, there are a few other surprises in the works, and we’re going to be covering the Mondo presence at Fantastic Fest 2012 all weekend long.
But let’s pause for just a moment to look ahead, all the way to October 19th. What’s happening then? Oh, nothing wildly exciting: just the biggest gallery show Mondo’s ever held, one centered entirely upon their Universal Monsters license. After you’ve changed pants, meet me after the jump for everything we know about October’s Universal Monsters show at the Mondo Gallery.
