September brings us many spoils here in Austin, Texas. A reprieve from 100-degree heat (it’s 94, which feels quite nice) and the promise of the biggest, most delicious genre film festival in all of these United States. And while Fantastic Fest is raging at the Alamo Drafthouse, their partners in crime at Mondo will be doing something equally as exciting: opening a new gallery show. From the first Mondo Gallery show to the time they saluted Adventure Time, each one of these events has been special in its own way. This time around, Justin Ishmael and the Mondo team have put together a show with art from Robert Brandenburg and Craig Drake, two artists who have delivered a number of stunning prints.
We are profoundly excited to be debuting one such piece today on FSR. From artist Craig Drake, we’d like you to meet “Nina.”
“Nina” by Craig Drake. Click to Enlarge.
Craig Drake, originally from Detroit, moved to San Francisco in 1998 to work in animation and freelance design, later moving on to Electronic Arts. He started work for Lucasfilm in 2006 where he created his first Patrick Nagel parody image (a limited edition Princess Leia print). Since then, he has become known for Nagel-izing pop culture figures masterfully, bring a sleek 80′s aesthetic to everyone in his path.
“Nina” will be sold as part of the gallery show, which will run from September 14, 2012 to October 6. The full details of the print can be found below. For more on the gallery opening, visit the Mondo Gallery homepage.
