Drew Struzan Announces Universal Prints for MondoCon

First Alex Ross Fine Art tempted us to open our wallets with his Classic Universal Monsters Set at San Diego Comic-Con, and now legendary movie poster artist Drew Struzan tempts us with prints of Frankenstein’s monster and his bride at MondoCon!

Struzan is responsible for some of the most iconic poster art images over the years: Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Blade Runner, to name only three.  This year, he will be attending MondoCon with these prints and more.

Each one is a limited edition (150), 18″ x 24″ print by DL Screenprinting.  At a $100 price point, they’re much more affordable than the Alex Ross prints… if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one!

“MondoCon is a celebration of everything Mondo loves, including movies, art, comics, music, toys, and food, and we’re excited to share our love for the city of Austin by holding the convention right downtown at the Austin American-Statesman.” Said Mondo’s Gallery and Events Manager, David Rancatore. “The venue used to house the newspaper’s printing presses and is a great space for all of the amazing artists, exhibitors, attendees, and panels this weekend. We’re thrilled to host our evening screenings at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar, the home of Mondo for many years, and for our fans to enjoy the awesome Drafthouse movie-going experience.”

About Drew Struzan:

Drew Struzan has achieved a truly unprecedented place in the 100-year history of motion picture advertising. With nearly 40 years of experience in the Industry and literally hundreds of movie titles to his credit, George Lucas refers to Drew as “The only collectible artist since WWII.” Screenwriter and Director, Frank Darabont says” The images Drew renders become part of that film’s iconography and history, just as important in some respects as the film itself, and sometimes better.” “What Drew does isn’t really distilling the elements of a movie,” says Guillermo del Toro, “It’s almost alchemy. He takes images and makes them quintessentially cinematic. His style has been copied so many times in a bad way, people don’t realize until they revisit his posters just how powerful the pure Struzan style is, how purely filmic it is.”

After graduating with great distinction from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Struzan created award-winning artwork for record album covers. But it was in his partnership in an L.A. design studio that launched his career in the movies. Beginning with B-Movie cult classics like Killer Force, Empire of the Ants, and Food of the Gods, Struzan quickly became sought after for “A” list movies; including all the Star Wars films, E.T., all four Indiana Jones films, the Muppet Movies, and the Back to the Future films, as well as Harry Potter and Blade Runner, on and on. His work has been made available in Limited Edition Art Prints and distributed throughout the world. His work has been displayed in Japan to standing room only crowds, and was the first and only living artist to have a One Man Show at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
