If Matt Reeves has done his job right with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and we think he has, the film will drive people back to the original series. Viewers should be so curious about what comes next that the new film will turn people on to not only the 1968 original, but its sequels as well. Artist Alex Ross is doing that, too. He’s releasing four brand new Planet of the Apes posters based on covers of the Boom Studios Comic Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm. They’ll first be available at San Diego Comic-Con via Acme Archives. Check out the Alex Ross Planet of the Apes posters below. Read More »

While you might not know the name Rob Jones you know his work. I guarantee it. Jones is a creative director for Mondo, which means he works with each and every artist who releases a poster and helps them achieve the best vision imaginable. While a piece by Tyler Stout or Olly Moss was done by them, Jones helped steer them in a specific direction from a very early stage. You could say every Mondo poster is born of Jones’ DNA.
In addition to that, Jones is quite the accomplished artist himself. He’s done dozens of famous album covers, gig posters, movie posters and in 2011 won an Grammy for designing a box set for The White Stripes. Later this week, he’s presenting an ambitious new solo show called “Grief,” comprised of 100 self portraits offering different takes on Charlie Brown. Yes, from the Peanuts Charlie Brown. It open July 17 at Galerie F in Chicago, Illinois.
Below, we’ve got several exclusive, pop culture inspired pieces from the show including detailed descriptions of the personal interpretations behind each from Jones himself. It’s a funny, but sometimes frightening, window into one of the most influential eyes in pop culture art today. Read More »
