Last year, Alamo Drafthouse's art division Mondo paired up with San Diego Comic-Con to offer up a limited edition series of "Game of Thrones" posters available exclusively at the event. This year, Mondo's pairing up with SXSW for another limited run of collectible artwork inspired by the HBO fantasy series as well as a "GoT" gallery show.
Mondo artists Craig Drake, Daniel Danger, Jason Edmonton, Horkey, Jock, Phantom City Creative, JC Richard and Ken Taylor and others have created "Game of Thrones" original fine art which will be on display, along with the first two of eight limited edition posters, at the Mondo Gallery at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin from March 8 through the 14th. Two more posters will be released digitally each week leading up to the March 31st "Game of Thrones" season three premiere.
"After the success of our San Diego Comic-Con initiative with HBO in 2012, we thought this was a perfect fit. We hope the fans feel our work has done justice to the show,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael. The gallery event will also serve as the launching point for another "Game of Thrones"-inspired work — Ommegang’s Iron Throne beer, the first in a collection inspired by the series. The beer will be available in stores and on draft in mid to late March, for anyone really dedicated to hosting a themed party.
