Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

Is this the first non-Star Wars portrait we've had from Mondo since the SW series started? Did Vader and the Stormtrooper mark the "official" end of the series? I thought the Star Wars series was just tremendous and would love to see more, though must admit getting some new character portraits would...

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

Vader and Stormtrooper portraits up at https://mondotees.com/ for the next few days. Was looking forward to Star Wars day in the hopes of a couple new prints!

Both look just terrific. The red lenses on Vader were a really nice touch.

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

The TIE Pilot is stunning. Love the contrast on the white background.

Mike's latest newsletter has me concerned there will be a portrait at the Mondo MM SW show not available online...

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

Looking like Black Philip ("technically just a pygmy goat"), a couple Food Dudes, and a Lobot portrait (the perfect Lando companion piece) for the upcoming Mondo Con - according to what Mike posted up at Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sirmitchell/ . Fingers crossed we see one or more pop-up at...

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

Interesting that Chewie is a larger sized print. He's gonna stand out on a wall of SW portraits for sure. Makes me wonder if we will see other large-sized characters in those same dimensions. Vader comes to mind, of course. As does a Wampa, tauntaun, and yes, Jar Jar (though Mike wasting his mighty ...

The Loggerhead Shrike going to be available at the Mondo booth at SDCC? Mike doesn't have his own booth, right?

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

The colors and texture on Threepio are astounding. Not a favorite character of mine personally, but it's got to be some of Mike's finest portrait work right there.

Also a big fan of the whole "timed edition" concept for these.

Re: Mike Mitchell's Thread of Amazing Things

Very exciting to see some SW portraits! The helmeted folks are gonna be tough (Royal Guard). Would love to see a Lando or Ackbar. Or a red-faced/choking Admiral Motti! Or a Tusken Raider! Ahhh!

Re: Artist you've met in person

I see Kevin Tong pretty regularly at the San Diego Comic Con (he's had his own booth the past several years). Terrific, regular guy.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road Commission

Really nice work - congrats!

Some of the outline work reminds me of Geof Darrow's work.
