We are very excited to have artist Laurent Durieux in attendance for his show opening this Friday, February 7th. Many of you have been asking if Laurent will be signing posters at the show so we wanted to post a small FAQ to cover everything. Please see below.

Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is partnering with Disney’s “Oh My Disney” blog to unveil “Nothing’s Impossible,” a gallery event at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, from March 7 – March 11, 2014. The gallery will open to the public on March 7 from 3:00-10:00 p.m. with regular hours to follow for the show’s duration. The Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX.
After partnering last year to debut limited edition artwork inspired by DuckTales and The Little Mermaid, Oh My Disney and Mondo invite fans to explore decades of beloved Disney films and characters like never before through original and fresh artwork from some of Mondo’s most renowned artists like Martin Ansin, Jeff Soto, Jason Edmiston, Mike Mitchell, Ken Taylor and Rich Kelly. Oh My Disney, a new pop culture blog on Disney.com, brings classic and current Disney characters to life for digital audiences through humorous and heartfelt original artwork, stories, articles and videos.
“Disney has a special way of bringing out the magic in all of us and we’re very excited to bring that feeling to Austin at this year’s gallery event,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael. “Having worked with Oh My Disney over the last year, we know the site celebrates reinventing timeless stories and we hope our work sparks the imagination of both Disney and Mondo fans.”
Oh My Disney and Mondo will release posters digitally every week leading up to the gallery’s opening on March 7th.

We are very excited to announce that our friend and über talented artist, Scott C. will be at the gallery on Monday, November 11th from 7PM to 9PM for a signing of his new book, GREAT SHOWDOWNS: THE RETURN! Scott will have copies of his new book as well as the first THE GREAT SHOWDOWN and a new print featuring several amazing showdowns!
Below are a few words from Scott as well as an image of the print.
“Hey, Austin! I am excited to come hang out with you next week! We are going to have a real blast! I can’t wait to meet all of you amazing Austin people. I have heard a million great things about you. And almost no bad things.” – Scott C.
We love horror so much. In most contexts, we would be talking about horror films as we’re known to do a movie poster or two, but in this case, we’re talking about comics… and TV. Our next gallery show is dedicated entirely to the masterful art and storytelling of EC Comics and the antics of one of EC’s most popular characters come to life: The Crypt Keeper. Our next show is officially titled…
The show is 100% filled with images produced by some of our favorite artists including the legendary Jack Davis, who created some of the most iconic imagery ever to come out of E.C. This show is going to be fun. Stay tuned as we’ll be debuting art and announcing more surprises for this show in the next few weeks.
Want a hint? Two words: Crypt Jam.
In case you weren’t able to make it out, check out some photos from the opening of Jason Edmiston’s solo show, A ROGUES GALLERY, below! The show closes this Saturday, September 14. If you haven’t stopped by to see it, be sure you come by this week. The amount of time Jason put in is unbelievable and it truly shows when viewing the work.
To view and purchase any artwork from the show, please visit the Gallery section of our website HERE.
In case you haven’t heard, we are having a gallery opening this Friday 6/21, featuring art inspired by Cartoon Network’s ADVENTURE TIME with FINN & JAKE and REGULAR SHOW. If you watch either of those shows you know how crazy incredible this is going to be. For the uninitiated, or the cable-impaired like myself, if you’ve never seen either of these shows, they are both currently streaming on Netflix instant watch.
We are excited to premiere a brand new piece for REGULAR SHOW by Jublin that will be on display at the show.

We hope you guys come out tomorrow night! In case the concept of super fun artwork hanging on walls is not enough to entice you, we will also have snacks, courtesy of SUGAR MAMA’S BAKESHOP, and SWEET RITUAL. We will also have complimentary beverages by MAINE ROOT, and fun giveaways including some ADVENTURE TIME blu-rays.
Now, some know we are pretty decent at throwing a fun Gallery Opening, but a lot of the credit for tomorrow’s event goes out to the fine people of local fun-zone TOY JOY. With the help of TOY JOY we plan on throwing the most mathematical gallery opening, that is fun for humans of all ages. Check us out on Friday, then go to TOY JOY’s Grand Re-Opening at their new space on 2nd Street.
The opening runs from 7PM and 10PM on June 21st. The show runs through July 20th
We’re very excited to announce our next gallery show featuring the amazingly creative and colorful worlds that make up ADVENTURE TIME and REGULAR SHOW. After our ADVENTURE TIME show last April, we’ve been eager revisit the Land of Ooo and this time, we’re also featuring work themed around another one of our favorite shows, REGULAR SHOW. Thank you to Cartoon Network for all of their help and support along the way.
The show opens Friday, June 21st with an opening reception from 7PM to 10PM at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX. It will be on display through July 20th.
It seems that our friend Mike Mitchell had such a great time here in Austin a few weeks ago, that he has decided to come back for the closing night of his Gallery show. And with him, he is bringing 4 new portraits!
This coming Friday, May 24th, we will be throwing our first ever Closing Night Party. Same rules apply: We will begin the festivities at 7PM, with new art and free drinks, and it goes until 10PM. Incidentally, that means we will be closed to the public during normal business hours that day. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Sadly, I cannot reveal what the new portraits will be (what fun would that be?) but I can tell you that they will be limited.
Lastly, if there are any Gallery Pick ups from April that have yet to happen (Repo Man, Oblivion Vinyl and poster, etc.) keep in mind, the gallery is closed to the public officially on the 25th until our next show (of which we will have more information about shortly).
To clarify, the closing night party is Friday, May 24th. The last day of the show will be Saturday, May 25th from 12PM to 6PM.
See you guys on Friday!
You may have noticed the postcards we had on display at our last gallery featuring Tyler Stout & Ken Taylor, but if you are still in the dark, our next gallery show opening on April 26th, 2013 will be a solo show featuring art from the great Mike Mitchell!
The show opens on April 26th and will run through May 25th at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX. We will have an opening reception on Friday, April 26th from 7PM to 10PM with Mike Mitchell in attendance.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks at work from the show as we get closer to the opening. For now, check out a great interview with Mike over at www.OMGPosters.com
