Sam Wolfe Connelly's Artwork for Mondo's 'Black Swan' Vinyl Release
The only person standing in your way is you. With Fantastic Fest coming up very soon, MondoCon will be hosting their 2nd annual expo also in Austin, Texas. One of the big items Mondo will be selling at their own Con this year is a brand new vinyl pressing of Clint Mansell's Black Swan gorgeous score, for Darren Aronofsky's film starring Natalie Portman as a ballerina. The score is actually Mansell's own interpretation of Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake, which is also unfortunately why the Academy decided to disqualify the score from Academy Awards consideration, even though it was clearly one of the best scores that year. Those who are dying to get their hands on vinyl, especially music by Clint Mansell, you won't want to miss this.
Here's the artwork by Sam Wolfe Connelly for Clint Mansell's Black Swan vinyl release at MondoCon:

Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan was released in 2010, and was nominated for five Academy Awards; Natalie Portman won for Best Actress.
