If you’re like me and a little underwhelmed by this year’s Oscar nominees, maybe seeing them through Mondo’s eyes will make it more exciting. The poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse is making posters for four of their favorite films, in four of their favorite categories, timed to the 84th Annual Academy Awards on February 26.
The first two films are Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo, representing the Best Picture category, designed by Kevin Tong and Gore Verbinski‘s Rango, representing the Best Animated Film category, designed by Tom Whalen. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
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 »

Check it out after the jump. Read More »

This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site. We posted part one here.
After the jump you will find part two of our preview, which includes /Film favorite Tom Whalen‘s tribute to The Shining, Bruce White‘s Ghostbusters-inspired black velvet painting, Eric Braddock‘s awesome One-Eyed Willie Goonies illustration, and more. So what are you waiting for?

Gallery 1988 has just revealed their final of the six awesome posters made for PaleyFest 2011. This one, for the hit Fox show Glee by Tom Whalen, rounds out a broad spectrum of shows that were graced with fantastic limited edition posters. And while Glee normally isn’t something we cover here on the site, as a poster collecting completest, anxiety would have set in if we only posted five of the six posters created for the series. All of these posters – including Eastbound and Down, Parks and Recreations and more -are on sale on the Gallery 1988 website. Currently, all except Glee are on there, as their panel isn’t until the 16th. See the full image and link to the rest of the posters after the break. Read More »
