It’s only a matter of time…
If you’re looking for the next Olly Moss or Jason Munn, you might find them working on their craft at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City — as the New York Times showcased these recent student submissions for the Broadway revival of Death Of A Salesman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and directed by Mike Nichols.
Much like his predecessors — and contemporaries — Peter Strausfeld, Olly Moss, and Jason Munn who all supplied their original movie poster visions to the UK’s Academy Cinema and Alamo Drafthouse, respectively — now comes along David O’Daniel and his wonderful limited edition silkscreens for The Castro Theatre in San Francisco.
Movie poster trends come and go, but there is no doubt that the hottest new kid on the block is Mondo, the mates behind the Alamo Drafthouse, who have rejuvenated the morbid market with their revamped one-sheets designs for The Rolling Roadshow Tour from such graphic design prodigys as Olly Moss and Jason Munn.
So if you want to learn more about this newfangled limited-edition movie poster empire, check out Ben Marks’s interview with Mondo creative director, Justin Ishmael, on Collectors Weekly.
The Rolling Roadshow Tour — brought to you by the movie-loving mavens at Alamo Drafthouse — starts tonight, and the schedule features a big platter of Texas-themed classics. And the posters by indie rock fave, Jason Munn, look pretty sweet, too. (If you recall, British artist, Olly Moss, did the sheets for last year’s show).
Last week when I put up the Meansheets Poster Shop on Etsy, I discovered a cool UK graphic designer named Claudia Varosio who does some fantastic reimagined movie posters á la Tyler Stout and Olly Moss.
And most are only $19, which makes them a steal compared to the rising prices at the Alamo Drafthouse!
Starting tonight, The Rolling Road Show by Levi’s and Alamo Drafthouse celebrates the “We Are All Workers” Tour by rolling out a bunch of free movie screenings all over the country featuring such films as Dirty Harry, On The Waterfront, Jackie Brown, Rocky, There Will Be Blood, The Blues Brothers, Convoy/Red Dawn, The Godfather Part 2, and Robocop…So check your local listings!
