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.

20th Anniversary Screening of The Shawshank Redemption

the-shawshank-redemption_806x1075_v2

Screenwriter Frank Darabont made his feature directing debut with an Oscar-nominated adaptation of Stephen King’s novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, and over the last twenty years, this gripping story of hope and courage has become one of the most beloved films of its time.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a young banker falsely convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, who faces unthinkable brutality as an inmate of Shawshank State Prison. Andy’s accounting skills and his friendship with a more experienced prisoner, Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding played by Morgan Freeman help keep him alive in the hostile setting. However, an unforgivable betrayal leads him to plot an impossible escape.

For his directing debut, Darabont assembled a top-notch supporting cast with a memorable performance by the great James Whitmore as a longtime convict. Darabont was also aided by Roger Deakins’ stark cinematography, Richard Francis-Bruce’s tense editing and Thomas Newman’s emotional score, which all earned Oscar nominations.

Stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and writer-director Frank Darabont will appear in person at the screening at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills on November 18, 2014 to help celebrate this contemporary classic’s 20th anniversary. More information HERE.
