In its fifth year, MondoCon is bigger than ever. In the convention’s program, co-founder and creative director Mitch Putnam mentioned this year’s con is “the first time it actually feels like we’ve hit our full potential.” Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Movie, music, and comic book fans love Mondo for all of the rad collector items they make. Hell, I’m one of them. People line up for hours (and even camp out overnight) to get their hands on the latest releases, and this year was no different. I had the pleasure of attending this year’s two-day convention, which by far was their biggest and best event yet.

This past weekend, pop culture art collectors descended upon Austin, Texas for the fifth edition of MondoCon, a convention dedicated solely to original artwork created for movies, television, video games and more. One of the most coveted new prints to come out of the convention was revealed at a special screening of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Thankfully, even though the special edition of the new print by Martin Ansin handed out at the screening is sold out and will cost you a significant upcharge in the secondhand market, there’s a timed edition available for order now.

Eric Tan is an artist we’ve covered several times on /Film, and for good reason: he’s been a reliable producer of incredible pop culture artwork for years – I still think about the awesome poster he made celebrating Lost back in 2009. He’s been a designer for the Disney Consumer Products team for more than fifteen years, and at this year’s D23 Expo, it was revealed that Tan and his wife, artist Stacey Aoyama, created posters for all of the Epcot attractions which line the park’s pavilions. Take a look at a gallery of the posters below. Read More »

See all of the new Andy Fairhust Lord of the Rings prints and find out when you can get them below. Read More »

The work of pop culture artist Gabz has paid tribute to some of our most favorite movies of all-time. Previously, he’s tackled the original Star Wars trilogy and the Indiana Jones trilogy, both in the same style. But soon we’ll get to see a variety of different prints from the artist.
Gabz (real name Grzegorz Domaradzki) is getting a solo gallery show from Bottleneck Gallery and Grey Matter Art titled I Am Gabz!. The collection of new prints includes “a wildly ambitious mixture or prints and detailed originals from pop culture touchstones that have personally affected him throughout his life.” We’re proud to debut a few of his new prints that pay tribute to Captain America, Thor and Hulk, three of the original Avengers. Get a look at some of the pieces in the Gabz art gallery show below. Read More »
The licensing agreement between Disney and Sony over Spider-Man means that Disney makes the majority of the merchandising sales, which gives no incentive for Sony to create cool merchandise for the Spider-Man films. This is a shame, especially with Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, which was my favorite film of 2018. Thankfully Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles has teamed with Grey Matter art to present an official tribute exhibition for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. What that means is that some cool original art and collectible prints have been produced for this fantastic film.
We attended the grand opening of the “What’s Up, Danger? The Into the Spider-Verse Tribute Show” on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at the gallery, and have video and photos from the show. Also, find out how you can get your hand on some of these impressive pieces of art.
