1

Mondo is excited to announce their next gallery show celebrating the pulpy brilliance of Francesco Francavilla, New York Times best-selling author, comic book creator, and artist. The solo show will feature all new posters of select comic book covers from iconic publishers including Marvel, DC and Archie Comics. The opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, August 26th from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX.

“We’re huge admirers of both the stunning quality and unique breadth of work Francesco Francavilla has contributed to the world of comic books throughout his career. Walk down the aisle of any comic shop and you’re sure to notice his artwork adorning several covers, whether it be titles from the big two, Marvel and DC, or Archie, or Dark Horse, or Dynamite, or even his creator-owned The Black Beetle. From his striking and bold colors to an affinity for all things pulp, noir and adventure, Francesco stands in a league of his own and we’re proud to present The Comic Art of Francesco Francavilla,” said Eric Garza, Mondo’s Head of Creative Production.

“I’ve been itching to put together a solo gallery show for some time now and I couldn’t be happier to see it happening with my dear friends at the Mondo Gallery! I’m celebrating my 10-year anniversary in comics and this might just be the frosting on that cake! Thanks again, Mondo, for making this happen,” said Francesco Francavilla.

Vice Press Announce Officially Licensed Dracula: Prince of Darkness Screen Print Art Poster By Francesco Francavilla

Vice Press are excited to share with you the details of their next officially licensed screen print movie poster; the 1966 Hammer Horror classic Dracula: Prince of Darkness, starring Christopher Lee as Dracula with art by Francesco Francavilla.

Produced under license from STUDIOCANAL Films Ltd and printed by Vahalla Studios, this beautiful art print set by Francesco Francavilla will be released at 6pm BST on Friday May 6, 2016  exclusively at  www.Vice-Press.com.

As a company focused on producing artwork that celebrates British and European pop culture, the Hammer Horror movies were a series we have been itching to work on since we launched Vice Press. It is an honour to produce a piece that celebrates one of cinema¹s most iconic characters as portrayed by one of the most legendary actors of cinema, the late Sir Christopher Lee. When it came to choosing an artist to work on the project, there was no doubt that Francesco Francavilla was the artist we wanted. Francesco¹s art perfectly matches the character and subject and captures the spirit of the classic 60s illustrated movie posters.

Here is what artist Francesco Francavilla had to say about working on this piece:

“I grew up with horror movies and even before I was watching Argento & Italian horror, I was binging on the classic Universal Monsters movies and the 60s/70s bloody colorful Hammer movies. Karloff, Lugosi, Lee, Cushing, were all childhood friends of mine so needless to say I was ecstatic when Vice Press asked me to do a Hammer Dracula poster – been wanting to do that for ages. Hope all the love I have for Hammer and Christopher Lee shows.”
