Check This Out: Tyler Stout's Gorgeous Mondo Movie 'Akira' Poster
"He's not your friend, he's ours! If somebody's gonna kill him, it should be us!" We've featured a lot of Mondo posters recently, but they keep debuting kick ass posters! Another one just hit the web, but this one is special. HitFix reports that at a highly anticipated, sold out Mondo Mystery Movie screening tonight, which was held in honor of poster artist Tyler Stout's birthday, they screened the iconic anime Akira at his request and gave out limited copies of this poster, created by Stout. Boy is it filled with love because it's, in a word, epic. Yea it's kinda "busy" as some could say, but if you love this movie and the story, all of these visuals are awesome to see on one poster. I want! Anime fans are going to be drooling over this for a while.
If you click on the photo above, you can DL the full higher res version that's available from HitFix. I just think this is an absolutely gorgeous bit of work that is obviously made out of his love for the movie, as that's why he chose to screen it for his birthday. "He wanted to come down to the Alamo for his birthday, which is on April 14, and we told him that he could pick anything he wants and we would make it work. So he surprised us when he picked Akira." If you haven't been keeping up, Tyler Stout has been designing some gorgeous posters recently, like Kill Bill and the Star Wars trilogy. I haven't been quick enough to snag any of the good ones from MondoTees yet, but this one wasn't even up for sale, only given out there. Lucky folks!
