Mondo press release
Happy Monday, everyone. We hope you're doing well and that you're staying safe and healthy. Tomorrow we're excited to continue our GODZILLA collection with new posters from Attack Peter, Robert Sammelin, and Eric Powell, as well as new t-shirts by Becky Cloonan and Attack Peter!
We first came across Peter Santa-Maria (Attack Peter) about one year ago and were blown away by his work. He is a printmaker who focuses on hand-carved linocut prints on Lokta paper (handmade paper imported from Nepal) that he prints himself - and they're awesome. Godzilla seemed like a no brainer for our first projects with Peter, and we're super happy with the result. In total we worked on three "Godzilla vs" posters for this collection, with the first release being for the Shōwa era's GODZILLA VS THE THING, also known as MOTHRA VS GODZILLA.
MOTHRA VS GODZILLA by Attack Peter. ~20" x 30" Linocut Print on Lokta Paper. Signed and Hand numbered by Attack Peter. Edition of 120. Printed by Attack Peter. Expected to Ship in June 2020. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $80 (above)
Next up we have Robert Sammelin's posters for the excellent SHIN GODZILLA. Released in 2016 and the first film in the Reiwa era, this modern Godzilla film is an amazing return to form. Robert absolutely crushed the illustration on this poster, rendering everything traditionally in ink on paper. The Japanese language variant poster features glow in the dark inks on those awesome atomic rays that come out from between G's dorsal fins. Just unreal.
SHIN GODZILLA by Robert Sammelin. 36" x 24" Screenprinted Poster. Hand numbered. Edition of 275. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Expected to Ship in May 2020. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $60
SHIN GODZILLA (Variant) by Robert Sammelin. 36" x 24" Screenprinted Poster. Hand numbered. Edition of 150. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Expected to Ship in May 2020. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $75
Eric Powell has stepped in to deliver a haunting poster for the original GODZILLA film. Presented mostly in silhouette, Eric's artwork is a beautiful and classic celebration of the original King of the Monsters and his massive scale, as well as devastating destruction that is often left in his wake.
GODZILLA by Eric Powell. 24" x 36" Screenprinted Poster. Hand numbered. Edition of 175. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Expected to Ship in May 2020. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $55
GODZILLA (Variant) by Eric Powell. 24" x 36" Screenprinted Poster. Hand numbered. Edition of 100. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Expected to Ship in May 2020. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $75
Alongside these posters, we are excited to offer two new t-shirt designs. First up is Becky Cloonan's RODAN, a follow up to her Gigan t-shirt design from last year's Toho apparel collection. Cloonan's love for kaiju is undeniable when you see the amount of detail she places in these designs, down to the repeating halftone aesthetics from the last shirt and the nod to Rodan's alias. We are also thrilled to have had the opportunity to transform Attack Peter's art for GODZILLA VS MOTHRA for this stellar t-shirt. A copy of his linocut poster was scanned and modified to print for apparel, retaining the amazing textures found in his original hand-carved plates. A welcome addition to the Toho collection!
Rodan T-Shirt. Designed by Becky Cloonan. Printed by Impact Merchandising. Sizing: Unisex XS-4XL, Next Level 3600 Black Tee. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $25
MOTHRA VS GODZILLA T-Shirt. Designed by Attack Peter. Printed by Impact Merchandising. Sizing: Unisex XS-4XL, Next Level 3600 Black Tee. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships to Addresses in the US & Canada Only. $25
These posters and t-shirts go on sale Tuesday, March 24 at 11am (CT) via THE DROP. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media channels for any updates and on sale info.
