MONDO To Release Vacation Poster By Andrew Kolb On July 30, 2015

Tomorrow MONDO will release a poster for National Lampoon’s Vacation by Andrew Kolb.

Here’s a note from Andrew about the print:

“Whoa, where to even begin? Before the crew brought me the project, I’d only seen the film a half dozen times, but thought I knew it pretty well. Wrong. After watching it again – taking notes, rewinding, and jotting down ideas the whole time – I realized just how brilliantly paced the whole thing is. In working through concepts (maps, postcards, etc.), the goal was to make something as expansive as a film about a road trip deserves, while also literally packing in as many references as possible.”

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This poster will be available online at a random time on Thursday, July 30th.

The Hirschfeld Century: Portrait of an Artist and His Age

2-hirschfeld-art-g5i11q19l-1the-hirschfield-century-1

Al Hirschfeld redefined caricature and exemplified Broadway and Hollywood, enchanting generations with his mastery of line. His art appeared in every major publication during nine decades of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as well as on numerous book, record, and program covers; film posters and publicity art; and on fifteen U.S. postage stamps.

Now, The Hirschfeld Century ($40) brings together for the first time the artist’s extraordinary eighty-two-year career, revealed in more than 360 of his iconic black-and-white and color drawings, illustrations, and photographs—his influences, his techniques, his evolution from his earliest works to his last drawings, and with a biographical text by David Leopold, Hirschfeld authority, who, as archivist to the artist, worked side by side with him and has spent more than twenty years documenting the artist’s extraordinary output.

Here is Hirschfeld at age seventeen, working in the publicity department at Goldwyn Pictures (1920–1921), rising from errand boy to artist; his year at Universal (1921); and, beginning at age eighteen, art director at Selznick Pictures, headed by Louis Selznick (father of David O.) in New York. We see Hirschfeld, at age twenty-one, being influenced by the stylized drawings of Miguel Covarrubias, newly arrived from Mexico (they shared a studio on West Forty-Second Street), whose caricatures appeared in many of the most influential magazines, among them Vanity Fair. We see, as well, how Hirschfeld’s friendship with John Held Jr. (Held’s drawings literally created the look of the Jazz Age) was just as central as Covarrubias to the young artist’s development, how Held’s thin line affected Hirschfeld’s early caricatures.

Here is the Hirschfeld century, from his early doodles on the backs of theater programs in 1926 that led to his work for the drama editors of the New York Herald Tribune (an association that lasted twenty years) to his receiving a telegram from The New York Times, in 1928, asking for a two-column drawing of Sir Harry Lauder, a Scottish vaudeville singing sensation making one of his (many) farewell tours, an assignment that began a collaboration with the Times that lasted seventy-five years, to Hirschfeld’s theater caricatures, by age twenty-five, a drawing appearing every week in one of four different New York newspapers.

Here, through Hirschfeld’s pen, are Ethel Merman, Benny Goodman, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Katharine Hepburn, the Marx Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Elia Kazan, Mick Jagger, Ella Fitzgerald, Laurence Olivier, Martha Graham, et al. . . . Among the productions featured: Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, Rent, Guys and Dolls, The Wizard of Oz (Hirschfeld drew five posters for the original release), Gone with the Wind, The Sopranos, and more.

Here as well are his brilliant portraits of writers, politicians, and the like, among them Ernest Hemingway (a pal from 1920s Paris), Tom Wolfe, Charles de Gaulle, Nelson Mandela, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and every president from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton.

Sumptuous and ambitious, a book that gives us, through images and text, a Hirschfeld portrait of an artist and his age.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Invasion of The Body Snatchers Print By Tom Whalen On July 22, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Paramount Pictures, brings one of, if not the, quintessential 1950s Sci-Fi classics to life via artist Tom Whalen’s arresting and contemporary take on the 1956 masterpiece that is “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” Strikingly hued in bold colors, Tom’s piece elegantly captures this brilliant allegory of post-war McCarthyism and the inherent terrors of unchecked, rampant paranoia. A film at once highly entertaining and exceedingly daring and ahead of its time, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” didn’t so much as question as openly provoke viewers to wake up to the world then about them.

A world perhaps not as far removed from our current society as we’d like to think. Tom’s Standard edition print is as visually compelling as it is lovely, a unique and clever take on the film’s disturbing alien pod leaf anchors his central imagery while iconic of-era silhouettes accuse and corral the film’s principals, hinting at once of aliens and/or one’s neighbors. Streaking pods and ghosted space elements marry visuals in a restrained, powerful and contemporary piece, all in keeping with DHM’s Seminal Film Series aesthetic that seeks to keep credits to a minimum wherever possible, allowing the artist’s work to dominate front and center for fans. Tom’s Variant edition elevates Sci-Fi palette hues, achieving a deep and moody piece that distinctly contrasts with his Standard, with both editions faithful to the film’s unique tone and undercurrents.

Offered in a standard or variant edition, these screen prints measure 24″ X 36″ and are a must-have for any fan of sci-fi excellence. Both versions of this stunning print will also be offered in an extremely limited, but highly desirable foil edition.

These prints go on sale Wednesday, July 22nd at 9:30 AM PST in the Official Dark Hall Mansion Store. You can view all editions of these prints on Dark Hall Mansion’s official Facebook page or on their official blog.

Stephen King’s Gunslinger Print Commission By Lyndon Willougby

Dallas based Graphic Designer Lyndon Willougby created this fantastic poster paying homage to Stephen King’s epic novel, The Gunslinger. The limited edition print measures 12 x 36 with 3 colors and will be printed by Lady Lazarus in Houston, TX. Sadly this was a private commission and not available to the general public but I still wanted to promote this exceptional piece.

Lyndon shared that he has read the entire series twice and was disappointed that The Dark Tower does not get the print love it deserves so he wanted to take a stab at it. Job well done!

Nick Comparone To Release Art Celebrating The Release of Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman

atticus_scout_web

To coincide with the July 14th release of Go Set A Watchman, the newly discovered novel by Harper Lee, stencil artist Nick Comparone has created two paintings celebrating the characters Scout and Atticus Finch, as portrayed by Mary Badham and Gregory Peck in the 1962 film To Kill a Mockingbird.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.
