2011 has been something of a banner year for Mondo. It brought the first work from legendary artists Drew Struzan and Shepard Fairey, the advent and expansion of the Mondo Mystery Movie, inclusion into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, licenses for DC Comics, Studio Ghibli, Pixar, Jurassic Park and much more. Now, they’ve decided to end this incredible year the same way it began – with Dracula.
Martin Ansin continues the Universal Monsters series Friday with his interpretation of the 1931 film Dracula, a film which was previously designed by Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey way back in January but didn’t have the vampire himself on the poster. But that’s not all. In addition to a variant, there’s an even more limited piece that’s done on wood, shaped like a coffin. It’s insane. Oh, and a new Tom Whalen Disney piece called Two-Gun Mickey will also be released for counter programming. Check them all out after the jump. Read More »

You’ve probably coveted many of artist Martin Ansin’s previous prints. His two Scott Pilgrim posters kick ass, his Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus is gorgeous and his Star Trek poster is one of the most sought after in recent memory. Now, Ansin is the latest artist to take a crack at the Star Wars poster series presented by Mondo Tees. His print, called A Wretched Hive, dramatizes one of the most classic moments in all of Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s severing of an arm in the Mos Eisley Cantina. There are so many classic characters in this print that it almost amounts to a really easy Star Wars version of Where’s Waldo. It even features the series’ first non-Carbonite appearance of Han Solo. Hit the jump for all the specifics. Read More »

The Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo Tees have announced a series of Star Trek-inspired posters. The first one will be released on the Mondotees website today (Wednesday) sometime around mid-day (so keep checking back). Martin Ansin‘s “Space Seed” poster profiles one of the most infamous characters in Star Trek history — KHAN!!!
Instead of doing WRATH OF KHAN right off, we decided to do a poster for his first appearance, SPACE SEED. WRATH OF KHAN will show up eventually, but we had to plant some roots. This will be an ongoing series in partnership with CBS. The most exciting thing about this partnership is that they have given us the keys to the kingdom. We can do LITERALLY ANY Trek property. That means the original series, the movies, TNG, the J. J. Abrams version and even the cartoon if we wanted to. Our goal is to do one a month and leave everyone guessing at what’s coming next. Next months entry will drive people NUTS and if everything goes right, we’ll be selling a variant at San Diego Comic Con.
The Space Seed poster will be available in a regular edition of 300 and a variant edition on wood of only 35. Check out the full print, after the jump.
