Briefly: You may remember last year’s South by Southwest film festival when I wrote a blog about appearing in a documentary. That documentary, Just Like Being There directed by Scout Shannon, is now available on Netflix Instant. It’s a carefree journey through the world of limited edition gig posters, told through the music of festivals like SXSW and more.
Eventually, it gets to Mondo and the current movie poster craze, where you can my embarrassing contribution, but if you’re bored this weekend and looking for a flick, there are many worse ways you can spend 90 minutes. Here’s the direct link.
Is your pop culture art collection cluttered with too many huge movie posters? Do you have a full stack of 27 x 40 inch paper laying around and not enough wall space to display? Are you looking for something smaller, more tasteful but still as awesome and exciting? Mike Mitchell is here to help.
Mitchell is one of the most popular artists out there today. He first gained national attention with his “I’m With Coco” poster for Conan O’Brien and has continued to do beautiful work putting a unique spin on popular culture. Last year, his Just Like Us exhibit at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles started a collectors craze and now he’s back for his second show. This one takes popular, and some not-so-popular, movie characters and provides them each with a detailed, classy portrait.
The exhibit opens Friday April 26 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and, after the jump, you can see about half the images in the show. Read More »
Criteron fans who saw the artwork for this week’s release of Alex Cox‘s cult film Repo Man and thought, “That looks familiar” might have been 100% right. The work, commissioned by Criterion, was done by two of Mondo‘s familiar and talented artists: Jay Shaw and Tyler Stout. You can get the artwork on the Criterion release, out Tuesday, or as limited edition screenprints released by Mondo, also on Tuesday. Get the specifics below. Read More »
Mondo, best known for being the limited edition poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, is well on its way to becoming a big limited edition vinyl boutique as well. It has only released a handful of scores so far, but more are coming and each has been more beautiful than the last. The biggest release so far was last month’s Drive release with hot pink vinyl and artwork by Tyler Stout.
Next up is their first new release, the score for Joseph Kosinski‘s Oblivion. Much like Kosinski did with his first film, Tron: Legacy, he employed a very talented, but very non-traditional composer for his sci-fi film: Anthony Gonzalez of M83. Gonzalez, along with Joseph Trapanese (who worked on Legacy, The Raid: Redemption and more) has created a unique, exciting and pulse-pumping score combining electronics and orchestra. It’s score that you’ll soon be able to pick up on vinyl the gorgeous artwork of Killian Eng thanks to Mondo. Check it out below. Read More »

Drafthouse Films’ commitment to unique, challenging cinema continues this year with Pieta, from controversial South Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk. Lee Jung-jin stars as a merciless loan shark whose world is upended by the unexpected appearance of a woman (Cho Min-soo) who claims to be his long-lost mother.
The film earned some high praise on the festival circuit last year, and in advance of its VOD release next week a new trailer has hit the web. And this being a Drafthouse title, there’s also a gorgeous new Mondo poster to go with it. Check both of them out after the jump. Read More »
Any time artist Tyler Stout releases a print, it’s an event. When he has his own gallery show, it’s a happening. Friday night in Austin for SXSW, the artist behind such memorable Mondo posters as Akira, the Star Wars trilogy and Kill Bill was on hand for a two-man show with Australian artist Ken Taylor. Stout premiered brand new posters for Drive, Attack the Block and Un Prophete and more, which you can exclusively see below.
We also got to talk to the artist about the new work, what it’s like to exhibit at the gallery, the pressure of popularity and having hundreds of fans camp out on a sidewalk just for a shot to buy one of his posters. Check it all out below. Read More »
