RoboCop by Jay Shaw & Mud Movie Poster Release Details

Poster by Jay Shaw. 18"x24" screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 150.

Poster by We Buy Your Kids. 24"x36" screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 145.

Tomorrow, Mondo will have a beautiful new poster from We Buy Your Kids for the upcoming film, MUD, which opens in select theaters this Friday and is really good. They will also have a great poster from Jay Shaw for ROBOCOP!

For the first-ever Denver area Tough Guy Cinema, Mondo commissioned Littleton artist Jay Shaw to create a suitably melancholic alt-art film poster for the iconic '80s flick.  Shaw had this to say about his reimagined RoboCop imagery:
"I've always seen Robocop as a modern Frankenstein (or Prometheus) story. The monster is a reflection of his creator's narcissistic ambition. Like the Frankenstein monster, Robocop is ultimately betrayed by his makers and resigns to punish them. The themes of mad science and corporate inhumanity are represented here by a single bloody teardrop underneath a fractured Omni Consumer Products logo. I decided to utilize Polish language because the style of the piece calls to that of film posters produced in Poland during the mid-twentieth century. "Superglina," the Polish title of the film, translates literally to "Supercop" but can also mean "Violent Force".
These posters will be available online at a random time on Thursday, April 25th at
