Francesco Francavilla’s Kong: Skull Island Print
Mondo is teaming with Legendary Art Series to release a new set of posters for Kong: Skull Island by Francesco Francavilla.
With such an iconic character, we wanted to be sure we hired an artist who could meet the challenge. Francesco’s work on these is a true testament to a lifelong love of the giant ape and we couldn’t be happier with the final result. He really stepped up and delivered on the brief, rendering a hirsute majesty breaking through the clouds like a god. “I can safely say I am a life time fan of KING KONG. When I was offered the opportunity to draw the big ape on a poster for this new, badass edition, it really was a no brainer. We really wanted to play on the majesty, the gigantic size of Kong, so after a couple of layouts, I came up with him looming, reaching over the island – a little nod to the classic image of King King looming over NYC skyline. It helped that the movie has so much great visuals that I tried to implement in the layout.” – Francesco Francavilla
The Kong: Skull Island by Francesco Francavilla. 24″x36″ screen print is a hand numbered edition of 335, available for $60. The variant is the same size, edition of 95, available for $85. The posters will be available March 10 at a random time via mondotees.com. Folly Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. I think I might like the variant more on this one.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
