Check This Out: Shepard Fairey's New Mondo Poster for 'They Live'!

June 9, 2011

They Live Behind-the-Scenes

Obey! Mondo Tees and the Alamo Drafthouse have debuted the latest fantastic poster for their screening event of John Carpenter's They Live tonight. Mondo somehow snagged the famous street artist Shepard Fairey, known for the iconic "Obey" street art and the "Hope" Obama poster, to design this recreation and it's frickin' awesome. I wouldn't expect anything less from Shepard Fairey, especially when he's mashing up his own "Obey" imagery with all the They Live imagery. For those who want a copy of this poster, good news is that it's on sale tomorrow (follow @MondoNews for a link) for $50 in a limited edition of 500. I want one!

Shepard Fairey - They Live Poster

The movie is screening tonight at the Drafthouse in Austin. John Carpenter shot a video for the Alamo Drafthouse, where he takes a moment to reflect on They Live (1988) and its prescience with regard to a media-saturated culture - I've added that below this as well. Apparently Shepard Fairey is there live at the screening tomorrow night to unveil his poster and those who are lucky enough to live in Austin and attend can get one of these posters while they're there tonight. Yet again, Mondo knocks it out of the park with another incredible poster design that brings new life to a classic film. I'm running out of wall space for all these posters, but sometimes I can't resist. I must obey and buy one! I hope they get Shepard to make more.
