On Thursday Mondo will be releasing a poster for modern Christmas classic HOME ALONE by DKNG Studios. These guys never fail to impress with their screen printing expertise. It's incredible that this poster only has four colors, but not entirely surprising when you consider what they can do with two. Fans of the movie are going to have fun spotting all the hidden surprises.
Here's what they had to say about the print:
"When approaching a concept for Home Alone, we knew the interior of the McCallister home and all of Kevin’s tricks to foil the Wet Bandits were likely to be the focus of our design. However, we also wanted to incorporate the exterior of the house and provide a different perspective on some of the movie’s most iconic scenes.The poster is 18"x24" screen print. Hand numbered edition of 275.
We took some liberties with the architecture of the house and the layout of the property, but in the end the exterior allowed us to include some of our favorite imagery from Home Alone including the Oh-Kay Plumbing van, the perpetually knocked over bronze statue, and off course, Old Man Marley.
This poster was an interesting challenge for us as we’ve typically been using two-color printing for this more realistic style. This time around, we stepped up to a four-color design that looks great with the fine halftones blending the colors. The poster is printed on a subtle metallic paper that will give the snow an extra shimmer as well."
