We’re Releasing BLUE SUNSHINE on Vinyl and VHS!

We are very excited to announce that we are issuing the soundtrack to BLUE SUNSHINE on vinyl for the very first time. We will also be reissuing the film on limited edition VHS!

Featuring artwork by Jay Shaw and remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin, this deluxe first time pressing on vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies. Pressed on 180 gram heavy weight black vinyl with a randomly-inserted translucent blue variant.

The clamshell packaged VHS, limited to 400 copies, is available in BLACK and randomly-inserted BLUE cassettes.

In celebration of both releases, this coming Monday 2/17, Mondo & Music Monday are pleased to present a 35mm screening of the cult classic film at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin with writer/director, Jeff Lieberman, in attendance. We will be premiering the Blue VHS and a special Blue Iris colored vinyl (limited to 200 copies) at the screening event.

More about the film below:
Jerry Zipkin is a nice guy. He graduated top of his class. He’s respectful of women. He’s in love. It seems like Zipkin’s got it made, until the night one of his friends loses his hair to spontaneous alopecia totalus, freaks out and throws three innocent women into a fireplace. Now Zipkin’s on the run from the law, wrongfully accused, trying to prove his innocence. It turns out others are going bald and going on murderous rampages. It’s up to Zipkin to find the missing link. It turns out they all have one thing in common, and that one thing is called BLUE SUNSHINE.

Writer/director Jeff Lieberman will be in attendance to talk about the film, as well as sign copies of the soundtrack and VHS.

Oh My Disney and Mondo Present: Nothing’s Impossible!


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.

Disney’s Alice in Wonderland
by Ken Taylor


Rob Jones’ Top 10 Posters of 2013


Robocop by Jay Shaw
April 2013
Well, here’s my list in no particular order.  My criteria was simply picking posters most likely to get hung up or presently hanging in my terrible home.  As I already have three of Jay’s past achievements on my wall, this crying Frankenstein Jesus portrait of Murphy post-passion is an easy choice.  That single bloody forsaken tear sets it apart from other more straight-forward depictions of the character.


The Thing by Jock
July 2013

Red, raw, and beautiful. I can hear the shriek every time I look at it.  On my wall, it’s become a horrible banshee-siren hybrid beckoning me to watch “The Thing” again for the 40th time.  With a few alterations, it could have also been a great poster for “Scanners.”


Metropolis by Ken Taylor
March 2013
Ken really is an enemy ace at capturing the nuances of a character’s personality with the slightest expression .  Here Evil Maria’s malignantly seductive gaze invites the viewer to their destruction.  I’d wager a good many will follow like the blitzed lemmings at the Yoshiwara.


Sightseers by Olly Moss
November 2013
Apart from it’s British Railways origins, this poster reminds me of something Charles Addams might concoct if hired by a studio. I’m a true admirer of “Chas”, so this naturally holds a lot of appeal.  A perfect poster that makes me want to go see the film.


Jaws by Laurent Durieux
January 2013
“Jaws” was pretty much the sword in the stone here at Mondo for a long fucking time.  Every artist seemed to try their hand at the hilt, but to no avail.  Lots of “big shark/little boat” solutions.  Laurent, however, effortlessly succeeded (or made it look that way), and cemented his role as our once and future solver of poster imbroglios.


Pretty Things Float by JC Richard
October 2013
JC’s original painting for this was one of the big “hits” of the Universal Monsters show at the Mondo gallery.  I overheard a steady stream of confounded mutterings from folks wishing they could buy the original.  Luckily we were able to play Blue Fairy and make it happen as a print.

I adore and overly identify with the faint sad and confused look on the monster’s face, like a kid figuring out death when his goldfish goes belly-up in the bowl.


Magica De Spell by Phantom City Creative
August 2013
Like Robert Crumb’s childhood sexualization of Bugs Bunny, I have to admit to a pre-pubescent crush on Magica as a kid (also Polly Purebred for some reason).  Anyways, Erickson had a banner year with Mondo offerings in 2014, but this print is a fevered wish come true for any fan of Barks’ most alluring creation.  Erickson really wrangles the lighting on these cartoon based posters so they leap away from their generally flat 2 dimensional origins (see his past sparks on “Hyde and Go Tweet” for further proof).


Silence of the Lambs (Precious) by Cesar Moreno
May 2013
Fucking precious.  I love anything that spurs house guests to break into Jame Gumb impersonations.

Cesar really delivered a great trio of posters this year with unique solutions, and I hope we get to see more in the coming 6 months before we burn Mondo down for the insurance money.


Spy vs Spy by DKNG
September 2013
Mad Magazine became one of the larger hands molding my young brain.  I’d carry a grocery bag full of issues on long-ass car trips and read through them again.  When the car stopped, I’d draw from them.  Then my mother read them, thought they were dirty, and took them away.

My favorite part of Mad was any fucking thing Sergio Aragones slung ink on.  Second to that was Jack Davis artwork.  Third was Prohias’ cold warriors reimagined cleanly and expertly here by DKNG.  It demonstrates a real appreciation of Prohias’ work, especially showing not only various forms of attack but countermeasures as well.


Son of Frankenstein by Rich Kelly
May 2013

What really curls my socks here is that the poster presents Bela Lugosi, deservedly, as the star of the movie even with the Monster’s face all lit up.  Rich presents a carefully studied portrait which I’d argue is the best rendering of a personality in any of his posters.  The hangman’s noose at the end of the rope is a nice nod to Igor’s cranked neck.



UPDATE: Ticket holders will be given priority to purchase posters before the screening begins in the lobby of the Ritz. If you were unable to secure a ticket, we will allow you to purchase a poster after the screening.

REGULAR (Red): 16″ x 24″ screen print. Edition of 325. $45
VARIANT (Gold): 16″ x 24″ screen print. Edition of 125. $65

The first, and only, Batman: The Animated Series movie to get a theatrical release turns 20 years old this Christmas. And similar to most children with birthdays on Christmas, this gem was overlooked (which is a shame because it runs circles around some of the live action Batman films that followed it). Directed by Bruce Timm, written by Paul Dini, and featuring the voice talents of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as The Joker, BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM was the beginning of a near flawless run of animated Batman films and series that ended with Batman Beyond in 2001.

That’s why Mondo is throwing it a belated birthday party with a 35mm screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz on January 7th. As part of the celebration, we will be bringing two new limited edition posters, as seen above and available for sale in the lobby, by Phantom City Creative!

Tickets for the screening will be available for purchase HERE on December 24th!

Aaron Horkey’s Top 10 Posters of 2013

In honor of releasing his new posters for THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS tomorrow, Aaron Horkey was kind enough to put together a TOP 10 list of his favorite Mondo posters of 2013, which you can read about below:


10. Alien by Randy Ortiz
October 2013
This poster is as cold and dark as Winnipeg in December. I can imagine Randy slaving away on the sinewy intricacies of the facehugger wrapped up in an afghan, cat on lap, space heater under desk, fingerless gloves – the whole nine. Detailed yet sparse and perfectly composed, the silent terror of the film is wonderfully captured.


9. Rambo: First Blood Part II by Tomer Hanuka
November 2013

A fantastic update on traditional Ukiyo-e composition and palette, the title chop is a brilliant touch. Diagonally splitting the image and peppering trace amounts of red among the muted green tones really speaks to Hanuka’s mastery. As refined and classy as a poster featuring Stallone could hope to be.


8. King Kong by William Stout
July 2013
One of my all time favorite illustrators, I was thrilled to hear Mondo had tapped Stout for Kong. Placing the ape at the top of a classic pyramid composition and grounding the whole thing with those massive block letters gives the entire image the heft it deserves. The halo of pterosaurs swarming Kong and the mutated beasts hidden among the lushly detailed jungle foliage are great touches as well. Of added interest is a step by step process entry of the poster’s creation on Stout’s web log journal (HERE) which is certainly worth your time.


7. Vault of Horror by Florian Bertmer
November 2013
I feel like Florian finally came into his own this year and this stunning inclusion to the Tales From the Crypt show really cemented it. Beautifully embellished gore, the worn corners and flayed comic spine are great touches.


6. Creepshow (Variant) by Mike Sutfin
September 2013
Speaking of detailed skulls, being able to fully examine this poster up close is just breathtaking. The textures in the nasal cavity alone are unbelievable and the use of glow in the dark inks is much more than a trite gimmick here. The scale of the piece actually gives the impression of moonlight hitting the ghoul as it peers into the room… Fantastic.


5. Jaws by Laurent Durieux
January 2013
A truly amazing poster – the upper left hand corner alone with it’s wonderfully stylized buildings and vehicle are enough to make me throw my hands up in exasperation. The fact that the other 7/8 of the piece is just as good is the finely crosshatched nail in the coffin. Understated and completely novel in it’s approach, a high water mark for an illustrator with a nearly perfect track record.


4. Magnolia by Joao Ruas
May 2013
I’ve already extolled the obvious virtues of this poster earlier this year, so I’ll use this virtual real estate to remind you, fair reader, to make haste to the city of Los Angeles for Mr. Ruas’ next solo gallery show in February 2014. All signs point to a barn-burner of the highest magnitude.


3. Sydney by Rich Kelly
May 2013
So advanced in so many ways, I feel like a fucking Neanderthal looking at this thing – slack jawed and mouth breathing. The lighting, the layout, the overlaid diagram – how does one conceive of, let alone execute, such a thing? Rich, you still win.


2. The Grandmaster (Chinese version) by Vania Zouravliov
August 2013
If the devil does, in fact, reside in the details, looking at an illustration by Vania is akin to seeing through the eyes of Mephistopheles. This poster, using only a couple of colors, is one of the most captivating images I’ve seen all year. The way the soft, oblong border pulls the viewer’s eye around the entirety of this lavishly opulent work is just remarkable. And the brush work on the title… just kill me now.


1. Taxi Driver by Martin Ansin
March 2013



This is it for 2013, everyone. We decided to go out with something festive and something Horkey. Pricing and info is below… nothing I could possibly say could add to these posters, so just let your eyeballs enjoy.

Mitch Putnam’s Top 10 Posters of 2013


There Will Be Blood by Aaron Horkey
May 2013
When I look at our poster output as a whole, Aaron’s There Will Be Blood poster stands out as a true masterpiece. The amount of hours that went into the drawing is unbelievable, and the printing is unequaled. It’s beautiful in every way.


The Thing by Jock
July 2013
One of our goals at Mondo is to try to create posters that show a fresh take on subject matter that is, in some cases, decades and decades old. Jock’s poster for The Thing looks unlike any of the existing visual materials for it, and it couldn’t be better. Love it.


Man of Steel by Martin Ansin
June 2013
I think Martin’s Man of Steel poster really shows off what can be done with a screenprinted movie poster these days. The technique is stunning. If any Mondo poster advanced the overall visual aesthetic of screenprints this year, it’d be this one.


Creepshow by Mike Sutfin
September 2013
I’m picking Mike Stufin’s Creepshow poster 100% out of fandom. I love the movie, I love the drawing, I love the colors. I love Mike too. It’s all perfect.


Repo Man by Jay Shaw
April 2013
When Rob and company were working on the Criterion Repo Man packaging, I was really blown away by everything I saw, but when Jay’s image came in, everyone involved immediately knew it had to be the cover. It works pretty dang well as a poster too.


The Master by Laurent Durieux
January 2013
Laurent Durieux may be the most versatile artist we work with. We can’t seem to stump him with a film. He’s normally known for huge ideas and landscapes, but he showed here that he’s also masterful (pun intended) at drawing a likeness.


Attack the Block by Tyler Stout
March 2013
This is one of Tyler’s best posters ever, and certainly his most underrated. The composition and colors are classic Stout. Really like the film too.


This Island Earth by Francesco Francavilla
September 2013
When we asked Francesco Francavilla to do our This Island Earth poster, I think we all had an idea in our minds what it would look like. In this case, it actually came in looking exactly like that, in a good way.


Silence of the Lambs by We Buy Your Kids
November 2013
I can’t say enough good things about the work of We Buy Your Kids. They possess a truly original visual style, which really is rare. This is the SOTL poster I was waiting for.


The Vault of Horror by Florian Bertmer
October 2013
We’re all huge EC Comics fans, so when the idea came together to have a gallery show focusing on that source material, expectations and nerd-out levels were at all-time highs. Florian crushed it here. Some of his best work ever, and pretty much flawless.

Justin Ishmael’s Top 10 Posters of 2013


The Terminator by Kilian Eng
July 2013
Ever seen this interview from SDCC? Well, this is literally seconds after I fell in love with THE TERMINATOR poster. Just having it up on that cardboard and the time between the set up and us doing this was all the time I needed to make my mind up. It’s weird…. seeing a jpg of it on the screen was great and it still looks good, but seeing it up close with the textures and details and the printing. Everything about it to me is perfect.


Boogie Nights by Rockin’ Jelly Bean
May 2013
I can’t believe this exists. At all. Just, the word bubble with the broken english and Rollergirl’s butt being all WHAM! and right there…. everything. It’s just a miracle that it got approved. When we got the final in, I didn’t think there was a chance that it would get the nod and it did. Thanks, studio! And to Aaron Horkey for making this happen.


Howl’s Moving Castle by Olly Moss
July 2013
I will be 100% honest and say that when this came in, I didn’t notice the faces on either side of the castle. I didn’t notice for a while. It’s embarrassing, but I’ll publicly admit it… you got me Olly. I love surprises and to me, that’s what Olly is good at. Among all of the things he’s good at, he is truly a master of keeping people guessing and keeping ahead of the curve. I used to play the poster game where we’d assign something out and I’d make a poster in my mind and see if it was what Olly would do… and it never is. He’s like Wolverine…. he’s the best at what he does…. whatever that might be on any given day.


This Island Earth by Francesco Francavilla
September 2013
Austin Books is the place I go every week to grab comics. On Wednesdays, I’ve started this thing where I grab all of my new stuff and then I stand back and just look at the comics on the wall as one big thing. Then, I see where my eye naturally goes to. It’s a great way to find new dudes to work with. Several years ago, it was a BLACK PANTHER comic. Then it was something else and then something else. And it was always Francesco’s stuff I was picking out first. His work just jumps out at you and I think that definitely applies to this poster. Action, monsters, spaceships, tons of taglines and text…. for this poster, every box is ticked on my Francesco want list.


Jaws by Laurent Durieux
January 2013
Even if you took the word beautiful, then took every synonym of the word beautiful and then made a SUPER WORD that had the power of all of them in one single utterance… it wouldn’t accurately describe how I feel about this thing.

This Laurent guy… seriously.


There Will Be Blood by Aaron Horkey
May 2013
This about sums up my feelings…


Halloween by Jock
October 2013
Jock is the David Blaine of illustration… i.e. “How’d he do dat?” Is this really a photo? Did he draw it? Dunno. I love that Jock doesn’t take the traditional routes for his posters. This could’ve easily been a bloodbath or a violent poster…. instead, it goes past that and starts dabbling in mood and feeling. Two big keys to great posters. Oh, and to everyone that thinks we made an error by having the knife in Michael’s left hand…. here’s the reason:

“Yeah, I got a lot of stick from people about the knife being in Michael’s left hand on the variant… it is true that it was purely an aesthetic choice – it’s in his right hand on the regular. All I would say is, I’m 100% right handed, and I’ve DEFINITELY held a knife in my left hand too… Especially when I’ve stalked Jamie Lee Curtis” – Jock


Godzilla by Phantom City Creative
July 2013
PCC sent in a lot of thumbnails for this poster. If each one would’ve went to final, we could’ve had like a dozen completely different posters with each one having their own merits. Maybe we’ll show those off one day. This one just stood out above the rest. It was amazing seeing this at SDCC at the end of the Godzilla Experience, too.


Weird Science by Paolo Rivera
November 2013
Like Francesco Francavilla, I became a Paolo mega fan from his comics work. His Spider-Man stuff (his Punisher!!!) and then, of course, his run on Daredevil…. all genius. We had asked Paolo to do something for the EC show and he wanted to, but didn’t really have time. If you look at the initial list of artists we announced, he’s not on there. It was only later in the lead up to the show that we learned he could do something. And this came in. Of all of the pieces in the EC show, I think this is my favorite and love imagining the story that this cover would be referencing. Like, what actually went down on that mission? Maybe Paolo will let us know one day.


Evil Dead 2 by Jason Edmiston
May 2013
I want to do a VHS re-issue of EVIL DEAD 2 and use this poster for the cover. How perfect is this image for the front of a big box? The light bursting out of the cabin? The lighting on the fog and the trees? So good. Jason’s first ever screenprint was 2 years ago. Now he’s doing this kind of stuff. One of the hardest working guys in the biz.

Film Synopsis:
HERE COMES THE DEVIL combines modern indie filmmaking and storytelling with a hint of ‘70s-styled psychological horror that may not just be psychological. Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro play parents Felix and Sol whose preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside after a casual hike became every parent’s nightmare. The good luck and good fortune of their return soon changes, as the children’s behavior suggests ominous and unspeakable events the night the children were lost that continue even now. As a loving couple – and loving parents – try to care for and protect their children, the ancient and half-whispered legends around the caves and the mountain and those who have gone there before become too strange to believe…and too dangerous, no matter how insane, to ignore.
