Mondo announced their collaboration with Disney’s ‘Oh My Disney‘ blog to bring ‘Nothing’s Impossible‘ to this year’s SXSW festivities.
Writing that sentence gave me chills.
The world of Disney is an incredible arena to play in and I can’t wait to see what Mondo’s stable of artists are inspired to create.
From the press release —
‘Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is partnering with Disney’s “Oh My Disney” blog to unveil “Nothing’s Impossible,” a gallery event at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, from March 7 – March 11, 2014. The gallery will open to the public on March 7 from 3:00-10:00 p.m. with regular hours to follow for the show’s duration. The Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX.
After partnering last year to debut limited edition artwork inspired by DuckTales and The Little Mermaid, Oh My Disney and Mondo invite fans to explore decades of beloved Disney films and characters like never before through original and fresh artwork from some of Mondo’s most renowned artists like Martin Ansin, Jeff Soto, Jason Edmiston, Mike Mitchell, Ken Taylor and Rich Kelly.
Oh My Disney, a new pop culture blog on Disney.com, brings classic and current Disney characters to life for digital audiences through humorous and heartfelt original artwork, stories, articles and videos.
“Disney has a special way of bringing out the magic in all of us and we’re very excited to bring that feeling to Austin at this year’s gallery event,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael. “Having worked with Oh My Disney over the last year, we know the site celebrates reinventing timeless stories and we hope our work sparks the imagination of both Disney and Mondo fans.
Oh My Disney and Mondo will release posters digitally every week leading up to the gallery’s opening on March 7th.’
