MondoCon might be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some gorgeous prints to pick up from the collectible arthouse. Mondo opened up their latest show “Home” by Jason Edmiston and Ken Taylor last month as a kick off to the art convention, and it’s on display through November 5th. But for those who can’t check out the gallery, you can get your hands on some of the prints today for movies like Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, The Birds and Metropolis.

Mondo has again teamed with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to release a poster print for his latest film, The Hateful Eight. Created by artist Jason Edmiston, we are excited to exclusively premiere this new print, which will be offered as a timed edition — which means that unlike with the usual super limited edition Mondo prints, you’ll have an opportunity to buy one of these if you really want it. And if you like this film you won’t want to miss out. Find out the details on the timed edition and learn about a special insert that will be randomly inserted into one lucky fan’s poster tube.

If you grew up in the past half century, then your childhood was probably filled with toys made by Mattel. My childhood was filled with a ton of He-Man figures and those M.U.S.C.L.E. minis could be found all over my room. I always wanted the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and a Mattel Overboard from Back to the Future Part II and childhood me would probably be shocked at which one of those officially released Mattel products future-Peter ended up owning.
A new art show will be opening up at Gallery 1988 next week called Mattel: A Tribute To 70 Years Of Toys. The show, curated by artist Dave Perillo, is a small group show that features different artists take on some of Mattel Brand most iconic toys from over the past 70 years. Hit the jump to find out more, see some artwork from the show, and learn what great artists (such as Dave Perillo and Tom Whallen — yes, thats his kick-ass Masters of the Universe piece above) are involved.

The essence of every character is the eyes and nowhere is that better seen than right this moment at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas. Their latest exhibit is called Eyes Without A Face by Jason Edmiston. Edmiston is an unfathomably talented painter who can capture the likeness and emotion of a character in ways you didn’t think were possible. He takes that ability to the next level with this show, where he painted the eyes of over 150 different pop culture characters. It’s a unique and fascinating exercise to prove you can almost instantly pick out any character, just by seeing a few inches of their face.
And, just to make things interesting, he did each painting in actual size. So King Kong is several feet long while characters from The Lego Movie are less than an inch. Below, find out more about the show, see images from inside and just a fraction of the amazing art in Eyes Without a Face at the Mondo Gallery. Read More »

There’s little debate that the first Rocky is the best Rocky. To this day, Sylvester Stallone‘s Oscar-winning underdog story holds up because of its unpredictable nature and great, unique characters.
The bigger question is, what’s the most beloved film of the franchise? The one fans will watch time and time again no matter what else is on. For my money, that’s Rocky IV, the montage-mad 1985 film that pitted the Italian Stallion against the unstoppable Ivan Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren in his prime. Rocky IV is by far the cheesiest of the series (squeaking out a win over Rocky III by a close margin) but it’s so unabashedly ’80s, from the music to the Cold War narrative, that’s it’s hard not to enjoy.
Rocky IV has gotten some poster love in the past but Jason Edmiston‘s newest gem takes the cake. It perfectly represents the film’s over-the-top tone while also being just a damn good looking poster. Skuzzles will release the poster on Boxing Day, December 26, and /Film is proud to exclusively give you a glimpse at the gorgeous Rocky IV poster by Jason Edmiston. Read More »
Have you ever heard of this character Batman? I hear he’s pretty popular. They’ve made a few movies about him, a few TV shows, and apparently a few comic books. 2014 is the 75th anniversary of this incredibly obscure, niche character, which apparently is why the team at Mondo is doing a full gallery show of original art and posters based on him and his gallery of characters.
75 Years of Batman opens Friday October 24 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and the first batch of art has been revealed. There are some heavy hitters here: Kevin Tong, Tom Whalen, Craig Drake, Phantom City Creative, Alex Pardee, Scott C., Jason Edmiston and this is just the first wave. Check out the Mondo Batman posters below. Read More »

Next week, New York gets a taste of Los Angeles as Gallery 1988 brings their signature event, Crazy 4 Cult, back to the Big Apple. The show opens December 13 and while we’ll have much more on the event in the upcoming days, two pieces in particular deserve to be called out.
They’re paintings by Jason Edmiston, who recently had a solo gallery show at Mondo in Austin, TX. Edmiston captured the climax of Steven Spielberg‘s Raiders of the Lost Ark with two paintings showing Colonel Dietrich and Major Arnold Toht in the horrific final moments. These works aren’t for the faint of heart, but they will find a place in the heart of any Indiana Jones fan. Check them out below. Read More »
