An Evening With Stephen King At The Manatee Performing Arts Center

SKING30_032

Stephen King spoke at the Manatee Performing Arts Center on Thursday January 29, 2015 in Bradenton, Florida. King’s appearance helped fund a new operating system for Manatee county’s Central Library.

“I’m a little bit puzzled by the success that I’ve had,” King told the crowd who had paid $200 and up for a seat at the Manatee Library Foundation’s annual author event.

So popular was King with the local audience that tickets sold out in three weeks, raising $100,000 for the foundation.

King, who with his wife, Tabitha, spends four months of the year on Casey Key, is well known for his support of libraries, which played a crucial role in his childhood in Maine, where the Bookmobile opened up the world to him.

Fans at the event took home pre-signed copies of “Revival.” Top sponsors, in the upper-level Northern Trust-sponsored reception, were able to meet him face to face as he did a quick tour through the room.

Below is a video of his appearance.

MONDO House Show To Open On January 30, 2015

10422550_10152750097532239_1908422886248508885_n

At the end of this month, MONDO will be opening their Gallery doors for a House Show featuring some of their rare and most iconic posters. For the first time, the gallery walls will be filled with prints released from 2007 to Present, hand-picked from their archive by Mondo art directors Justin Ishmael, Mitch Putnam & Rob Jones. The show will offer a unique chance to see 30+ posters from incredibly talented artists like Todd Slater, Aaron Horkey, Tomer Hanuka and many more!

Stop by the opening reception on January 30, 2015 to hang out at the gallery with fellow fans without the typical opening-night frenzy. Though the posters will not be for sale, MONDO will have a variety of merchandise available, including a new Thrasher Logo pin, t-shirts & keepsakes from the Gallery’s latest acquisition – an old-fashioned penny press. Additionally, they’ll be auctioning off a Star Wars Variant poster set by Tyler Stout with all proceeds going to charity.

MONDO hopes to make exhibits featuring older work a regular thing, especially for those visiting Austin in between new exhibits.

The House Show opening reception is Friday, January 30, 2015 from 7pm – 9pm. Gallery hours for this exhibit are Thursday – Saturday from 12pm – 7pm. The show runs from January 30th through February 21st.

From Characters To Colors: The Story of Star Wars Celebration 2015’s Official Poster And It’s Rebels Variant By Craig Drake

Star Wars posters are an art form unto themselves. For an artist to capture the essence of Star Wars on a poster — the feel and look of the films, the drama of the stories, Han Solo’s overall awesomeness — isn’t easy. To do it while filtering Star Wars through their own lens is even harder. But Craig Drake‘s stunning new Star Wars Celebration poster, the official key art for April’s mega-event, appears effortless.

There’s a simple reason for this: Drake loves and knows Star Wars, having worked at Lucasfilm for seven years as the senior designer of StarWars.com, and he has that rare ability to convey what we love about a galaxy far, far away in an immediate, almost subconscious way. In his poster, there are classic Star Wars elements: the overwhelming power of Darth Vader, dark and light colors in a sort of harmonious conflict, and a sense of Star Wars-branded danger and excitement. The style, however, is all Drake’s: the lines are sharp, the details simple, the colors bold. Ultimately, the image is unmistakably his own, but successfully adapts his style into the language of a movie poster. So how did he do it?

The Marvel Experience Tour will make its San Diego debut on the North American Tour from Feb. 7-22. This first-of-its-kind premier touring experience features a thrilling motion ride, the world’s only 360-degree Stereoscopic 3D Dome, a wide range of technologically advanced interactive and immersive elements, state of the art projection techniques and dozens of Marvel’s most popular Super Heroes.

As agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in training, guests of The Marvel Experience will swing with Spider-Man, smash with Hulk, fly with Iron Man and more, all in preparation for an epic battle alongside Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes in a fight against Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K. and an army of evil Adaptoids.  The Marvel Experience incorporates next-generation interactive technology including augmented reality, multi-person gaming and immersive elements that put you right in the middle of the action. Everything happens with bleeding-edge technology and advanced computer animation. There’s nothing else like it. Not only does the audience get to join the adventure, in the end they may even become heroes themselves.
