MondoCon 2019 is going to take you back to the woods with the world premiere screening of Evil Dead in 4K with a reimagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca.

In addition to the Evil Dead material, attendees will be the first to score new Mondo offerings including Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 3XLP and posters for GhostbustersThe Last Jedi and more.

MondoCon is heading into its fifth year with a weekend curated to feature artists, creators, panels, screenings, interactive events, food trucks and more. One highlight is the Evil Dead 4K screening. The Evil Dead 4K screening “presents the horror classic for the first time with a reimagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca and a thrilling new 5.1 surround mix created by Marti Humphrey and Jussi Tegelman, the award-winning sound crew behind Drag Me to Hell and Ash Vs. Evil Dead.” The score was previously released on vinyl by Mondo, but the release available at MondoCon will include a new slipcover, which you can see below.

Draplin Design Co: “Things That Don’t Have A Thing To Do With Graphic Design”

As a graphic designer, I’m lucky to make things for all kinds of things. But more and more, I’m realizing the profound impact it has on the things in the rest of my life. Things in my backyard. Things that hold things. Things for my nephew. And things on one of the saddest days of my life. That’s a lot of things. Plus, we’ll update you on all the things we’ve been up to, aside from all those other things. Tons of new things!

MondoCon Spotlight: Greg Ruth

Sit fireside with Greg Ruth as he discusses his storied artistic career. With a focus on pieces produced for Mondo including his staggering output for Twin Peaks, Greg shares his process and a surprise or two. Hosts Mitch Putnam, Eric Garza and Rob Jones helm a spelunking adventure through the mind caverns of a master.

Live Draw

Ever wonder how a poster comes together? Come watch as Daniel Danger, Matt Taylor, and Jock collaborate live and in person to design a movie poster in front of your very eyes. In this panel, the audience will have the opportunity to choose a title and then witness (and participate in) the creative process from start to… basically finish.

Mondo Talk

Join the creative team behind Mondo’s posters – Rob Jones, Mitch Putnam, and Eric Garza – as they discuss and share insights behind the process of putting together a Mondo poster.
