New Movie Poster Books!

This Friday, we’ll be celebrating something that we love here at Mondo: movie posters! We’ll have two books focusing on artists that rank among our favorites, a focused look at Ray Harryhausen films and a Mondo Exclusive version of the newest selection from our friends at 1984 Publishing. These books showcase the posters that got a lot of us interested in this art form in the first place. And if you don’t have these in your collection, now is your chance to remedy that.

All of the books will go on sale on Friday (11/15) at 1:30pm (CT) via mondotees.com.

The Art of Drew Struzan - By Drew Struzan and David J. Schow. Published by Titan Books. Expected to Ship in December 2020. Ships Worldwide. $34.95

He is the favorite artist of both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and the artist behind some of the most iconic images of our time… he is Drew Struzan.

The first ever book to cover Struzan’s iconic poster artwork in depth, with the final artwork for each piece accompanied by background and anecdotes from an exclusive interview with the artist. With an introduction to Struzan’s philosophies and techniques, this stunning hardcover includes photos, sketches and reference material, plus closeups and a brief history of each poster featured, from STAR WARS to THE GOONIES.


The Art of John Alvin - By Andrea Alvin and published by Titan Books. Expected to Ship in December. Ships Worldwide. $34.95

John Alvin's movie poster art is among the most iconic of the last 40 years, from Disney films such as BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, MULAN and PINOCCHIO, to EMPIRE OF THE SUN, GREMLINS, BLAZING SADDLES, PREDATOR, and the STAR WARS 30th anniversary posters. This book not only collects some of Alvin’s finest work, but also includes previously unseen comprehensives and in progress sketches. With the text including commentary from Alvin’s widow, this is a unique insight into the work of one of the 20th century’s great artist/illustrators.


Harryhausen: The Movie Posters - By Richard Holliss and published by Titan Books. Expected to Ship in December. Ships Worldwide. $39.95

Harryhausen: The Movie Posters showcases the posters from all of Ray's movies, from 1949's MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, to CLASH OF THE TITANS in 1981. There has never been a book published devoted solely to the promotional art associated with the films themselves. Featuring posters from all over the world, as well as commentary from The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation, this is an essential addition to any fan's library.


Ad Astra: 20 Years of Newspaper Ads for Sci-Fi & Fantasy Films (Mondo Exclusive) - By Michael Gingold and published by 1984 Publishing. Expected to Ship in December. Ships Worldwide. $34.95

Once upon a time, Michael Gingold started a collection of newspaper advertisements for the science fiction, fantasy and horror releases that stoked his passion as a genre fan. As the years went by, Michael held on to this collection of weird and wonderful art, eventually publishing the best-selling, horror-themed Ad Nauseam: Newsprint Nightmares from the 1980s and its sequel, Newsprint Nightmares from the 1990s and 2000s. And now he presents Ad Astra: 20 Years of Newspaper Ads for Sci-Fi & Fantasy Films, a year-by-year look at the movies that shaped many a childhood in the '80s and '90s.

Inside this 270-page book, you'll find STAR TREK to STARSHIP TROOPERS, BLADE RUNNER to THE RUNNING MAN, ROBOCOP to ROBOT JOX, and many, many more. See alternate artwork for your favorite films, learn the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of their marketing campaigns, and read the most entertaining and unexpected quotes from reviewers at the time all carefully curated by Michael. Plus, this Mondo Exclusive version will come with a one of a kind bookmark made from an original 35mm film print!

New GODZILLA Apparel Collection!

First revealed by Complex earlier this week, we are proud to present our first collaboration with the mighty Toho Co., Ltd - a behemoth celebration of The King Of Monsters with our an all new GODZILLA apparel collection!

"What better way for GODZILLA to celebrate 65 years of cinematic and pop culture history than to partner with the team at Mondo?” expresses Chris Mowry, Associate Brand Manager at Toho. Like the GODZILLA brand itself, Mondo has something for everyone, and there are some exciting new products on the way that are sure to please both the new fans as well as the hardcore collectors out there."

As the first of many Toho releases to come, this collection is the start of something new and exciting. In the coming months, we will also reveal additional Toho lines, including Posters, Tiki Mugs, and Statues.

“The Toho Kaiju universe is utterly unparalleled,” says Allie Whalen, Mondo Creative Director. “It is a rich world of uniquely terrifying monsters that signify a greater battle between good, evil and the hubris of humankind. Toho has crafted a breadth of iconic character designs that are recognizable and revered. It is a monumental endeavor to pay homage to decades of this pop culture powerhouse, but Mondo is eager to connect with the pervasive subculture holding a torch for GODZILLA.”

Each artist has their own relationship with the Kaiju of Toho, like Becky Cloonan’s love affair with Gigan. She states, “When Mondo asked me to illustrate my handsome cyborg kaiju space boyfriend Gigan to grace the front of a T-shirt, of course I jumped at the chance! GODZILLA vs Gigan is one of the weirdest movies I’ve ever seen, but it’s also just so cool and has so much heart. I can’t go back in time to illustrate the VHS cover, so instead I drew this T-shirt! A homage to the best monster that ever was!!!”

In addition to the apparel above, we’re stoked to release the first in a series of pins by GODZILLA enthusiast, Tom Whalen.

‘What’s one property that you haven’t worked with yet, but you desperately want to?’ No question has surfaced more consistently at speaking engagements, convention appearances, and podcasts that I’ve been a part of,” says Whalen. “And my answer has always been the same: ‘Toho monsters.’ These fantastic creatures have entertained, inspired, and delighted me since childhood, and my love for them continues to this day. I'm ecstatic the Mondo has partnered with Toho and opened up a sandbox that I’ve long wanted to play in.”

New THE HANDMAIDEN Poster by Tula Lotay!

We’ve just wrapped up an amazing weekend in the UK at Thought Bubble, and we’d like to send out a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by the booth for a hang or a chat. It was wonderful putting so many faces to names, and you all made us feel warmly welcome despite the blistering cold. 

At the show we premiered a new poster for THE HANDMAIDEN by Tula Lotay, and tomorrow we are proud to offer the remaining copies for everyone who could not make it out to Harrogate this past weekend. Tula took our breath away with her work on this poster, and with a little help from the mighty Jason Edmiston on separating this for screenprint, the print work by DL is absolutely top notch. If you haven’t seen the film, we suggest remedying that as it’s yet another amazing feather in director Park Chan-wook’s hat.

NEW THIS WEEK

THE BOYS - Music From The Amazon Original Series 2XLP. Music by Christopher Lennertz. Artwork by Jack Hughes.

Mondo, and Madison Gate Records are proud to present Christopher Lennertz score to the Amazon Original Series: THE BOYS.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name, THE BOYS tackles our modern obsession with superheroes in media with a biting satire of modern politics and the abuse of power from a fictional League of Heroes who may need to be taken down a peg. Christopher Lennertz (AGENT CARTER, LOST IN SPACE) has composed a blistering, propulsive score for the darkly comedic series that adeptly parodies the musical landscape of propoganda, all while being a terrific soundtrack to the ensuing action drama that unfolds when the "Supes" collide with the titular anti-heroes tasked with being their checks and balances.

Featuring original artwork by Jack Hughes, liner notes by composer Christopher Lennertz, series creators Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and showrunner Eric Kripke, and pressed on 2X 180 Gram "Compound V" colored vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl).


Joel Grind - Echoes In A Crystal Tomb. Death Waltz Originals. Artwork by Haunt Love. 450 copies pressed on Galaxies Edge Green & Purple vinyl. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $25

Joel Grind returns to Death Waltz Originals with his sophomore solo LP. While the sounds here will be familiar for fans of his first Death Waltz Originals release “Equinox,” on this new record he manages to push the boundaries of his previous work into further uncharted territories. A mix of deeply meditative electronic ambience, dreamy Tangerine Dream textures and arpeggiated pulsating synth bangers. Comes with download card of the entire LP. You can listen to the album here.

New HONEY BOY Poster and T-Shirt by Jay Shaw!

This Thursday November 7th, we are proud to release a poster and t-shirt by Jay Shaw celebrating one of our very favorite movies of the year, Alma Har’el’s HONEY BOY. 

This film is an incredibly meditative study in cinematic therapy and one in which Shia LaBeouf delivers yet another fantastic performance. We are big fans of this film and highly recommend getting out to the theater to check it out when it opens this weekend.

From Jay, “In Alma Har’el’s HONEY BOY, Shia LaBeouf brilliantly plays a fictionalized version of his real-life father, a former professional rodeo clown and amateur parent of a successful child actor. The relationship between a father who never quite found success and the son he both resents and reveres occupies the heart of the story. The film is incredibly funny and beautiful and heartbreaking. It resonates especially for anyone with a complicated relationship with their father. Alma mentioned her affection for Polish film posters when we first discussed this assignment so I wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to pay homage to my favorite school of design. The bull is a somewhat obvious bit of rodeo imagery but the metaphor made too much sense to ignore. The bull is strong and protective and resolute, but also hot-tempered and easily misguided. Adding conspicuous clown imagery on top speaks to both Shia’s character “James” and Lucas Hedges’ older “Otis”, the adult version of the son telling his story through rehab sessions. HONEY BOY stuck to my ribs long after I saw it and I hope the film finds a huge audience, it’s a special one.”

We’re coming to Thought Bubble this weekend! (Booth 49-51)

This weekend, we’re making our return to one of the best conventions ever, Thought Bubble, at the Harrogate Convention Centre in Harrogate, UK! We don’t get across the pond too often, so we wanted to bring something special for attendees of the show. We have partnered up with one of our favorite artists, and the director of Thought Bubble herself, Tula Lotay, on a poster for Park Chan-wook's brilliant THE HANDMAIDEN. We'll have a limited allotment of the run available at the show, and Tula will be at the booth signing both Saturday and Sunday from 12-1p, so be sure to stop by if you'd like to pick up one of these gorgeous posters. In addition to this new poster, we have dug deep into the Mondo archives and are bringing a vast array of long sold out gems. You never know what you might find... 

Mondo’s Creative Director, Eric Garza, “Thought Bubble is a truly one of a kind convention. Not only did it serve as inspiration and sister convention for our own MondoCon, it has since become one of the single best shows for anyone who loves to celebrate comics and art. From the team that run it, to the volunteers who staff it, the talent who exhibit, and the fans who attend it, Thought Bubble is an amazing and incredibly inclusive experience. We can't wait to get back out and see our UK friends and visit the new location in Harrogate.”

New Posters for STALKER by Adam Maida and THE NIGHTINGALE by Greg Ruth!

This week we are unbelievably proud to present two awesome posters by two incredibly talented artists, STALKER by Adam Maida, released in conjunction with Black Dragon Press, and THE NIGHTINGALE by Greg Ruth.

From Adam, "Tarkovsky’s ‘STALKER’ is filled with the harrowing feeling of the unknown. There is an ever-present and unnerving psychological tension that the Stalker and his clients grapple with as they haphazardly attempt to reach their full transcendental potential. I reflect on this tension by representing the affective experience of what would be like to travel through Tarkovsky’s “ZONE.”

And not to be outdone, here is Greg on tackling Jennifer Kent’s gripping follow up to THE BABADOOK, “When I first saw the trailer for Jennifer Kent’s THE NIGHTINGALE, I think it took me all of three seconds to beg Mondo to let me do a poster for it. I’ve been a great admirer of Jennifer Kent’s brilliant first outing, THE BABADOOK, but this film was something altogether different on about a thousand different levels. The authentically volcanic performances by the film’s central pillars, Aisling Franciosi and Baykali Ganambarr, the visual cues and storytelling by Kent just grabbed me by the leg and pulled me through this remarkable and brutally heartfelt story in a very personal way after spending so many years working on INDEH. It is one of the most powerful and important films about the intimately devastating impact of colonialism I have ever seen... I must have drawn 20 different concepts and finalized at least a half dozen fully executed pieces for this, my enthusiasm was so electric. In the end it came down to this allegory image of Aisling’s character, Clare, and her unbroken gaze sitting there in the wilds of Australia with her baby and that gun as a kind of ruined daguerreotype that captured the most essential heartbeat of the film. By far one of my favorite movies of the year, and happily it’s available everywhere to stream as I write this. Please give it a go if you haven’t seen it yet, and support the tremendous power of independent film at its best.”

Music Weekly: 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY + TERMINATOR: DARK FATE!

Hello all, this week we are thrilled to present a re-issue of one of the most iconic and essential soundtrack albums of all time: the original soundtrack to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. 

Not to be confused with our 2014 release of Alex North's unreleased score for the film (MUSIC FROM 2001) this re-issue of the original motion picture soundtrack album has been remastered and faithfully restored from the original source material in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary, and is available on two discs for the first time ever.

Second, we are thrilled to present Tom Holkenborg's kinetic score for the all new TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. Also, we are proud to present one of our favorite synth scores of 2016, BEACH RATS, as part of our on-going NEON soundtrack series. 

As usual, new releases and restocks go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

NEW THIS WEEK

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. This essential re-issue has been re-mastered at Abbey Road Studios for the 50th anniversary. Cut at 45 RPM and pressed on two vinyl discs for the very first time ever. Housed in a die-cut gatefold jacket featuring original artwork by Matthew Woodson and pressed on 180 Gram colored vinyl. Also available on 180 Gram black vinyl. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $40

Mondo, in conjunction with WaterTower Music, is proud to present one of the most iconic film soundtracks of all time, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.

The soundtracks to Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces are storied, and nearly as engaging and challenging as the films themselves. The soundtrack to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is no different. Kubrick's last minute decision to omit all original scoring by legendary composer Alex North for classic orchestrations and waltzes went on to become some of the most iconic and discussed music for film in the last 50 years. Kubrick's use of 'The Blue Danube' alone is one of the most important uses of music in the history of film. 


TERMINATOR: DARK FATE - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Tom Holkenborg. Artwork by Sara Deck. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Silver with Black Splatter vinyl (also available on 2x 180 Gram Black vinyl). Expected to Ship. Ships Worldwide. $35

NOTE THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. All orders containing this item will not ship until January 2019. 

Mondo, and Paramount Pictures are proud to present Tom Holkenborg's kinetic, fist pumping score to TERMINATOR: DARK FATE.

Similar to MAD MAX FURY ROAD, another film featuring a brilliant Tom Holkenborg score (A.K.A. Junkie XL), TERMINATOR DARK FATE is a movie that starts with a bang and never lets up. Holkenborg's ability to capture the controlled chaos of the chase is masterful, as it manages to weave in a delicate homage to Brad Fiedel's original TERMINATOR score without disrupting his own sonic take on the franchise.

Featuring a brand new illustration by Sara Deck, the soundtrack is pressed on 2X 180 Gram Silver with Black Splatter vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl) and housed in a wide-spine sleeve with two printed inner sleeves.


 

BEACH RATS - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Nicholas Leone. Pressed on 180 Gram Translucent Blue (limited to 300 copies worldwide). Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $25

Mondo and NEON are proud to present Nicholas Leone's terrific synth score to Eliza Hittman's film BEACH RATS.

BEACH RATS is a criminally underseen coming of age movie set in Brooklyn and deals with sexual awaking and bisexuality in an utterly beautiful and human way. The score complements the film perfectly, Nick Leon delivers a spellbinding, magical, ambient score filled with emotion and dreamlike wonder, it’s a reminds the listener of softer Boards Of Canada style ambience and recent ravenous appetite for Japanese ambient reissues of the 80s and compliments the deft touch and dreamy atmosphere of the film perfectly. As a piece of music away from the film it could easily be at home on warp records and is a must-listen for fans of chilled out electronica with incredible melodies.

AVAILABLE NOW

BLADE RUNNER 2049 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Walfisch. Artwork by Viktor Kalvachev. Additional design by Chris Bilheimer. Webstore edition pressed on 2X 180 Gram Teal and Pink colored vinyl. Expected to Ship in August 2019. Ships Worldwide. $40

New TERMINATOR: DARK FATE Poster by Matt Ryan Tobin!

Twenty-eight years have passed since TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY was released, and this week we finally get the sequel we've been waiting for with the release of TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. Directed by Tim Miller (and produced by James Cameron) the film looks to be a great return to form, and we're excited to celebrate its release this week with an awesome new poster by the mighty Matt Ryan Tobin. Both THE TERMINATOR and T2 are all-timers, and without question one of the best parts of both is Linda Hamilton's iconic portrayal of Sarah Connor. When it comes to this poster, it's all about paying homage to one of the genre's greats, and we couldn't be happier with Matt's note-perfect rendering of the classic badass.

From Matt, “Without having seen the film, I was faced with the challenge of telling its story in a single visual. I found what hadn’t really been represented in any previous posters for these films was in fact, who the story has always been about: Sarah Connor. The story of how the hunted became the hunter."

Music Weekly: TENEBRE + THE SECT + SHOCK!

Hello all, this week we continue our partnership with with Italian legends Cinevox & AMS Records to bring you a deadly leather gloved triple bill of officially licensed Italian horror classics, as well as a HALLOWEEN themed double sided Slipmat designed by Gary Pullin so you can stay spooky all year round!

First off, we have our version of Dario Argento’s Giallo classic TENEBRE with new artwork by Randy Ortiz and audio taken directly from the Cinevox Archives. We are also releasing LA SETTA (aka THE SECT) featuring a beguiling score by Pino Donaggio, lastly, we bring you Mario Bava’s masterpiece SHOCK featuring music by Libra - this definitive 2XLP LP set features 12 exclusive tracks that have never been released on vinyl before!

Both TENEBRE & LA SETTA are one-off pressings and strictly limited to 500 units. All titles feature tracks pulled directly from the Cinevox archives.

As usual, new releases and restocks go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

NEW THIS WEEK

TENEBRE - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Music performed by Simonetti - Pignatelli - Morante. Artwork by Randy Ortiz. Strictly one off pressing of 500 units on 140 Gram Transparent Rred vinyl. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30

TENEBRE is the 1982 Giallo masterpiece from Director Dario Argento. Although his frequent musical collaborators Goblin had disbanded while he was filming, Argento managed to convince three members of the group to reform and record the score to TENEBRE. Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli & Massimo Morante re-assembled in their studio and managed to deliver one of the greatest soundtracks of the 80s, Simonetti brought with him his love of Italio disco and the mixture of solid disco grooves and their intense, tight Prog Rock stylings is nothing short of astonishing. The lead track is a vocoder lead freakout that mixes disco, rock with church organs, and screeching synth leads and that pretty much sets the tone for the entire record. TENEBRE is far more electronic based than the majority of the bands scores for Argento and it really shines alongside other classic such as SUSPIRIA and DEEP RED.


 

LA SETTA (THE SECT) - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Pino Donaggio. Artwork by Eric Adrian Lee. Pressed on 140 Gram Clear vinyl. Strictly ltd one off pressing of 500 units only. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30

Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present the complete score to director Michele Soavi’s 1991 horror film, THE SECT  (Italian title: LA SETTA), also known as THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER. This demonic cinematic offering, co-written and produced by Dario Argento, features a brilliant score by one of the great maestros of horror film composing, Pino Donaggio (CARRIE, PIRANHA, TOURIST TRAP, BLACK CAT, THE HOWLING, et al.). For this film, Donaggio incorporates synthesizers, electronic percussion, and a creepy chorus of voices to capture the ominous occult atmosphere of Soavi’s work. With plenty of jumps and scares, Donaggio expertly accentuates the tension onscreen with this frightfully foreboding score. As you drop the needle on this satanical slab of wax, be prepared to relish in some auditory Luciferian delights as you fall under the spell of THE SECT (Alfonso Carrillo, RENDEZVOUS, LA).


 

SHOCK - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Music by Libra. Artwork by Eric Adrian Lee. Definitive vinyl re-issue spIit across 2 LPs including 12 tracks never before released on vinyl, all direct from the Cinevox/AMS archives. 2X 140 Gram LP. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30

SHOCK was released in 1977 and directed by horror maestro Mario Bava, released while Italian horror cinema was at its peak, following the international success of Dario Argento with DEEP RED and SUSPIRIA. While Goblin soundtracked the work of Argento, the choice for the music of SHOCK fell on Libra, (distant relatives of Goblin , thanks to drummer Walter Martino and guitarist Carlo Pennisi). In ‘77 Libra, after a brief dalliance with legendary soul/funk label Motown, had practically split up, but on the insistence of Bava they found the necessary inspiration to record the soundtrack to SHOCK, you could say the score was inspired by Goblin’s mix of Prog, Funk and Synths, but it absolutely rages with its own personality. It contains some outrageous over the top prog, terrifying synth attacks, delicate and acoustic atmospheres as well as dissonant and avant-garde soundscapes. 


HALLOWEEN Slipmat. Designed by Gary Pullin. Double sided premium felt Slipmat to help your record deck stay spooky all year round. Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $12

Sunday Scaries with Krystal Karim, Merchandising Specialist!

I didn’t find the horror genre, it found me!! I only had a brief glimpse of what the horror meant in my youth. With movies like RESIDENT EVIL, HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES, PET SEMATARY, and THE STRANGERS found their way in front of my eyes... they gave me weeks of sweat drenched night terrors! Before those moments my scaries came in the delightful forms of classic BATMAN villains and the “Monsters of the Week” variety in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.

However, about five years ago, a few of my friends were convinced that I’d looooove classic horror, so they gave me lists of movies to watch. A daunting task, starting with the classic '80s genre and titles that were more suspense than horror. I fell head over heels. There’s something about the horror genre that can give anyone of any background, race, gender a platform for their experiences and emotions and get an audience to be empathic. I admire where the genre is headed and appreciate its roots. My absolute favorites are SCREAM, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, CAMP, CABIN IN THE WOODS, ALIEN, SUSPIRIA, and TRICK ‘R TREAT. I’m pretty much drawn to anything with an incredible Final Girl, fantastic dark humor, and I’m definitely a sucker for those B-rated slashers!

Here are my TOP FIVE PICKS from our scary Mondo collection that will quench your thirst for Halloween Horror!

Jonesy T-Shirt (Black & White)
Another black t-shirt to add to the closet of black t-shirts. Art by Martin Ansin of Ripley’s cat, from one of the most badass female-led films in the horror/sci-fi genres.

BATMAN - Original Motion Picture Score LP
The sounds of Danny Elfman will always remind me of Halloween. Here’s to my eternal love of Tim Burton’s Batman and Joker dynamic.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD Screenprinted Poster
One of the best parodies of a zombie movie ever with art by Robert Sammelin, this would be a perfect addition to any horror enthusiastic home décor.

New DRACULA by Sara Deck and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON by Jason Edmiston!

This week, we are beyond excited to release a pair of posters for the Universal classics, DRACULA by Sara Deck and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON by Jason Edmiston. Both Sara and Jason delivered beautiful work that brilliantly captures the aesthetic and soul of these titans of horror. 

From Sara, “With his charm, elegance and mysterious demeanor, Bela Lugosi will forever be the quintessential DRACULA. I have personally always been captivated by the imagery of DRACULA gliding through the streets of London on his way to the opera. Dressed in both his iconic cape and top hat, he rubs elbows with the elite, who are all blissfully unaware of his dark purpose. I wanted to capture the feeling of being caught in his mesmerizing gaze on that dark and foggy night. For this piece I strove to evoke the feeling of the classic Universal poster designs that we all know and love.”

From Jason, “THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON forever intrigues me.  The combination of a mysterious origin, a doomed passion and a groundbreaking suit design presents a fascinating yet relatable character. He’s an easy choice as my favorite of the Universal Monsters. I created this poster by painting the portrait in acrylics.  I then digitally separated the image into eight colors through a mix of transparent and opaque inks. The variant required an additional color to properly evoke the brightly painted packaging of the 1960’s Aurora Model Kits by the legendary James Bama. I love immersing myself in the classics and hope other monster kids join me as I dive into a full series celebrating these foundational films of the horror genre.”
