You possibly know the work of Laurent Durieux through his Mondo movie posters, but if that's all you know, you're missing out. The 42-year-old Belgian artist, an acolyte and fan of Jean "Moebius" Giraud, was named one of the world's 200 best illustrators by the prestigious Lürzer's Archive advertising magazine in 2011; since then, he's done pop art pieces for Dark Hall Mansion as well as several pieces for Mondo, including a poster for Jaws that Steven Spielberg himself bought prints of and sent to many of his friends.

DISCUSSION

Mondo has the worst business model I've ever seen. They seem to do print runs specifically aimed at the secondary buyer's market. Many of their posters are on eBay moments after they've sold out from the site, and the only poster they printed for demand was Olly Moss' terrible Dark Knight one.
