Yoda gets his close-up in new Star Wars Mondo poster
Patience you must have to not look at this portrait.
Those at this week’s SXSW will be treated to tacos, television panels, and a special Mondo Gallery collection of Star Wars posters. EW has the exclusive first look of artist Mike Mitchell’s Yoda portrait.
In honor of George Lucas’ iconic franchise turning 40, the Austin-based gallery is unveiling Mitchell’s new limited edition Star Wars work at Mondo and Acme’s SXSW event. The show will begin on Friday night at 7 p.m. at Mondo’s gallery and run through Monday.
“I have a particular and unyielding love for the designs in Star Wars, and I’m so stoked that I got to spend a year picking out my favorite characters and bringing them to life in my own way,” said Mitchell.
The Yoda poster is a timed edition release available for purchase online at mondotees.com beginning Thursday at 1 p.m. ET through Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. The other exhibition posters will be available to purchase at the gallery — Yoda will be on display at the show, but is only available for purchase online.
Ahead of the big show, the Mondo team will participate in a Reddit AMA on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET/2 p.m. CT to preview the event and what other projects they have in the works.
