Thought Bubble Mondo Posters

The 2013 Thought Bubble conventions was really fab, my second visit to this annual event which is a poster convention that takes place over a weekend in November 2013 during Thought Bubble Comic Con, a two week event that runs parallel to Leeds International Film Festival.

Mondo had a stall there this year and brought a host of artists with them, namely, Olly Moss, Kevin Tong, Jock and Drew Millward. I came away with six posters, the first being this “Watchmen” poster by Kevin Tong which really pops when you see this in person.

Second up is this one by Drew Millward, for the movie “The Fly”. Though a great looking poster I recently sold this on to another collector.

This next poster for the film “Halloween” by UK artist Jock was originally produced for Halloween: 35 Years of Terror @ Pasadena Convention Center. This was the variant done in UK Quad style (though slightly smaller).

Next poster also by Jock, the variant edition of his Mondo poster for the cult classic “The Thing”. This is really wicked art and one day hope to get this in a frame.

I purchased two posters by British Artist Olly Moss. One of Mondo’s hottest artists and this was his art poster for “Lawrence of Arabia”. There was a massive que for those waiting to get their hands on a Olly Moss print, mostly queing for his secret poster and those desperate to get his Paper Cuts book. I was 49 in the que (for 4 hours in very cold November) and really should have got one had Olly sold the 50 he brought with him rather than giving the last two to the Mondo crew (frustrating I know). Still, I did score his Lawrence poster and his “Sightseers” poster variant for Mondo.
