Salty Winters’ Favorite Posters from MondoCon 2017

MondoCon 2017 featured a diverse array of beautiful limited edition screen printed posters by talented artists from all around the world.

Remembering MondoCon 2017

After a year hiatus, I was back at MondoCon! I could not have been more thrilled. I can’t tell you how much I missed all the great art, the films, the artists, the nerds and of course my friends last year. My return did not disappoint. As always, my partner in crime in Austin was […]Read More

Nerdlocker Artist Interview: Aaron Draplin

Last year I was fortunate enough to attend MondoCon in Austin, Texas. No lie it was one of the best convention experience I have ever had. A large part of that was due to the talented artists who attended. I discovered several artists I had not heard of before. Case in point, Aaron Draplin. Unfortunately, […]Read More

MONDOCON 2016 – In retrospect

It’s been a few weeks since Mondocon 3 and I am sure missing things. One of the things I enjoy most besides new art is interacting with artists and people you hardly ever, if never, see in person. Spending time with friends is often rewarding, but spending time with friends with like minded hobbies is […]Read More

History of the Mondo Mystery Movie (MMM)

MondoCon 3 takes place this weekend, Saturday 10/22 and Sunday 10/23 and with it comes the revival of the MMM.

Fantastic Fest 2015 Recap: Day 1

Hello friendos! Fantastic Fest and MondoCon ended a few weeks ago and I’ve finally recovered. Like last year, I packed in as many screenings, parties, and events as possible and my plan is to cover them all. The movie lineup was a scorcher.

Nerdlocker Interview: Justin Brookhart

For those of you who have never met Justin Brookhart, Mondo’s VP of Operations, I should probably warn you ahead of time. The dude is extremely likable.

Fantastic Fest 2014: Day 4

Previous recaps: Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4: Sunday 9/21 As much as I wanted to go to MondoCon first thing and line up for Laurent Durieux’s Back to the Future Part III poster, I didn’t want to miss Drawn and Quartered 2014, the animated short film program at Fantastic Fest. I’m glad […]Read More

MondoCon 2014

The sweat is still fresh. But this isn’t the healthy day at the gym type of dampness. This is the Texas humidity trapped in my clothes. In my pores. The stale air of airports and rental cars. Air conditioned convention halls and a tented summertime parking lot. At the moment the Daniel Mudford and Pete […]Read More
