Mondo: Best Posters of 2013

Mondo has always been at the forefront of cult movie artwork and this years screen print’s did not disappoint. In 2013 we have seen some incredible stuff from emerging artists and veterans alike – Kilian Eng, Kevin Tong, Randy Ortiz, Drew Struzan, and Jay Shaw to name a few. If you know anything about Mondo’s releases, you know they are extremely hard to get a hold of. Following them on Twitter is definitely the best way to get your hands on any of these great pieces. Randomly, they’ll tweet out that a poster will be on sale soon. Then, at an undisclosed time, they will tweet that the poster is available for purchase. At that point, everyone and their mother rushes to the website to order them as fast as possible. I have never actually been able to get my hands on one, but i will never stop trying!

Until then, here’s what i believe to the best posters Mondo has released in 2013.

Alex Sanchez to Release Mad Max Web Comic

This years NY Comic Con was a blast and I was fortunate enough to run into Ironhed comic artist Alex Sanchez. Set up at his artist alley table was a ton of his brilliant art work for purchase. Sanchez is known for his work on comics like  Tales of the Vampires, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Fleshdigger, and Batman: Jokers Asylum. His artwork is uncanny and he’s done tons of work for DC, Marvel, Top Cow, IDW, and Dark Horse. Sanchez has been working on an up and coming Mad Max  web comic which should be dropping sometime soon. Being a huge Mad Max/Road Warrior fan, this could not be more exciting! I’m a huge sucker for post apocalyptic fiction and can’t wait till this comes out. Here’s a few images from Alex’s collection!

New: The Dark Knight Rises Movie Posters

Everyone is waiting patiently for the upcoming Christopher Nolan Batman film, The Dark Knight rises. The third installment of this modern batman epic is looking to be pretty interesting and is hopefully just as psychologically stunning as the last two films. An all star cast (Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Anne Hathaway) and a dark, noir styled Gotham will hopefully satisfy fans of classic batman comic books as well as new comers to the character. These promotional posters were just released earlier in the week and look fantastic. Enjoy!

Robocop Screen Prints

It’s 3am and i find myself wired on a Saturday night channel surfing only to come across one of favorite childhood blood-fests: Robocop. This movie was one that my parents never wanted me to watch, especially because of many explicitly violent gun battles. It’s funny, in the 80’s did everyone think that Detroit and Seattle would become the most crime infested, dangerous places on earth, where the criminal underbelly ran wild and plotted to destroy the established order? Apparently. Robocop was a movie with a great blend of character development, bad ass action, and hardcore violence. It was every 15 yr old’s dream come true. A lot of artists have posted Robocop screen printed posters, so here they are for your viewing pleasure:

My Guitar Collection 2012

I have been playing guitar since i was about 15 years old and since then have gone through a serious amount of bargain bin guitars. As i got older and saved more $$$ i could actually afford the guitars that i really wanted . Here is a quick photo shoot of my current guitar collection and some of the biggest loves of my life. The axes i’m currently wielding include: Mexican Fender Jaguar, Fender Telecaster, ESP Hybrid 300, Epiphone Dot Studio, and a Hagstrom F200. Two of the guitars i own are discontinued (F200/Hybrid 300). All these guitars sound amazing when fully intonated and i personally feel as though i have a great high to low tone spectrum with these guitars. Whether it be for heavy rock, blues, or clean jazz this guitar arsenal can handle anything.

Coming soon: Photos of my Amp and Pedal Board set up!
