Check This Out: Mondo Tee's Sleek Metropolis Poster

March 4, 2009
I'm a huge fan of the original Metropolis, and it's rare that I ever get to talk about it on here, so I'm very excited today to feature Mondo Tee's brand new Metropolis poster. This was made by Uruguayan illustrator Martin Ansin for the upcoming SXSW screening of the film at the Alamo Drafthouse. Two different variants of the poster were made, one is gold, the other is silver, both printed with metallic inks, with the silver one also featuring glow in the dark ink. I'm not particularly a fan of the way the characters are arranged, but I otherwise love the lettering and the metallic look of it. If you're a fellow Metropolis fan, check this out!
There are only 30 of the gold posters available, so buy now if you're interested. We've previously feature a few of the other awesome posters that the Alamo Drafthouse's Mondo Tees has printed of the last few years, most of them by Tyler Stout. But this one is definitely one of my favorites, and it hits home even more because I'm such a big fan of Metropolis (although I still have a special place in my heart for the film's original poster). Each poster measures 24" x 36" and is screenprinted in very high resolution. You can buy the silver one for $30 or the gold one for $50. I'm definitely planning on ordering one of these!
