From October 19th to November 10th, Mondo will be holding a gallery show featuring numerous posters for the classic Universal Monster movies! Today they unveiled their take on Creature From The Black Lagoon by artist Laurent Durieux. This guy is limited to 475 prints and will be available for sale at the Mondo pop-up store at the Alamo Drafthouse S. Lamar on Friday, 9/21.
When the show opens it will feature one-sheets from dozens of world-renowned artists including Martin Ansin, Rick Baker, JC Richard, Kevin Tong, Ken Taylor and many more. The gallery will also include original, never-before-seen works from legendary poster artist Drew Struzan. A full roster of artists can be found in the postcard image below the jump.
The Mondo pop-up store at Fantastic Fest will also boast a new line of limited edition shirts from Tyler Stout. Entitled “Brain Damage”, the collection features a wealth of new designs from Tyler and a cadre of artists personally selected by Tyler himself. You can check out some of those below as well.

Since my first trip to Austin in 2008, I’ve been a huge admirer of Mondo, the art boutique arm of the Alamo Drafthouse. What started with me buying a Troll 2 Rolling Roadshow print for shits and giggles has now grown into me obsessively refreshing their shop page every time I know they have something new for sale, and now I find myself with a huge problem: I have more prints than I have wall space.
I never thought the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would get involved in geek movie prints, but today they announced that they’ll begin archiving Mondo posters and one of the first they plan to put into the vault is Drew Struzan’s Frankenstein.
What makes this a momentous occasion is that Struzan announced his retirement in 2008 after completing the poster for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and has created very few new works since – an interpretation of Mattel’s Barbie for the doll’s fiftieth anniversary and a limited edition Walking Dead poster seem to be it. For those who aren’t familiar with the iconic artist, he’s made some of the most memorable film art of the last three decades, including posters for Back To The Future, Blade Runner, The Thing and Star Wars. This is also big news because he’s never worked with Mondo before.
