MONDO*CON September 20-21 2014
10am-6pm both days
(more info here http://mondo-con.com/ )

Ok, here’s all my info for the very first MondoCon!

Location: I’m in DITKO HALL, table B19 (see diagram above - click on the image for larger view).

Convention Sketches
Yes, I will be doing what I call mini-commissions at the show. I can’t do any prior to the show due to deadlines.
The commissions will be 9x12 Bristol, single-figure, some background, done with pencils, inks and washes, and will cost $300. Busts/headshot might cost less - please inquiry at show.
Since they require time, I am planning to do only 6 commissions a day (Sat and Sun). It’s done first-come, first-serve, so just come see me early to get on the list. I will do a new list every day. I take cash or credit card (assuming this iPad gizmo works).
You can see above a sample (Swamp Thing) of a 9x12 full figure, fully inked mini-commission.

Prints
I will have two limited prints exclusive for this show, one at my table B19 and one at the Mondo booth.

SIREN ISLAND
13x19” limited giclee print. Run of 100. $50 each.
Available at my table. This print is a collaboration with comic legend and dear firend Berni Wrightson, who is also attending the show. It’s your chance to get the print signed by both me and Berni.

AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE
24x36” screen print. Run of 275.
This is the Mondo print that is gonna be released at the show. As with all Mondo prints, this will be available exclusively at the Mondo booth.

Other Prints: I won’t have a large variety of prints with me. I’ll definitely have some Black Beetle and Afterlife prints and you can see above the other very limited (some not more than 3) prints I will have with me.
Art prints are archival ink on archival 13”x19” paper, bagged and boarded, and are $40 each.

T-SHIRT
THE BLACK BEETLE t-shirts (see above) will be live screenprinted at the show by Industry Print SHop (see diagram above for location).

Signings
I will sign books and prints for free and will have a little donation bucket for a charity of my choice: if you like to donate a buck or two that would be greatly appreciated!

Signing time is the last 10 minutes of each hour (i.e., 10.50 to 11 am, 11.50 to 12pm, etc.)
If you have a lot of books and there’s a long line, I may ask you to let me do it in batches just to be considerate to others.

For STOP&CHAT and handshakes, pls feel free to stop anytime, as long I am at the table ;)

See you guys there!

Cheers,
Francesco

AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIEMONDO Poster Art by Francesco Francavilla24x36” Screenprint - Edition of 275
and I can finally reveal my Mondo poster that will be released at MondoCon this weekend: AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE!
Cannot express how proud and happy it makes me that the two books that have defined my comic career in the last couple of years, The Black Beetle and Afterlife With Archie, have both got a Mondo poster treatment, even if there is no movie or anything attached to them (I still hope though ;))
The screenprint will be released at the show but if you miss to buy it from Mondo I should be getting APs as usual :)
Cheers,FF

THE ART INSPIRED BY SLEEPY HOLLOW
Illustrations by Francesco Francavilla

If you follow this blog you know how big of a fan I am of the new horror FOX show, SLEEPY HOLLOW.
As I did with some other show that I dig a  lot (Breaking Bad, Doctor WHo, etc.), I started to do minimalist posters for each episode after watching it on tv in prime time. So it was pretty cool to have, this past Summer, FOX Entertainment contacting me to about using those posters in the extras section of the dvd/buray Season 1 set (see photo above of the tv). For the occasion, I completed the posters (I was missing 3 of them, probably because of some deadline) to make a total of 13 illustrations, one for each episode.

Everybody at FOX was so happy with those posters that I was asked to contribute some more art for a very special, exclusive booklet for the TARGET release of Season 1. What came out is a 32 page booklet full of art depicting all the main characters and plot points of the full season. 

Took some snaphots (see above): the booklet is part of the dvd/bluray set and it’s really neat. The set is on sale, starting today, in all TARGET stores only (not available online), so go grab one if you guys love the show (like I do) and dig what you see here :)

Cheers,
FF

"THE HORROR THAT CAME FROM BENEATH!"

I am beyond thrilled and honored to announce this collaboration print with one of the comic industry and horror legends - and dear friend of mine: the one and only BERNI WRIGHTSON!

I fell in love with this SIREN  pencil drawing (like I fall in love with everything Berni draws, really) the first time I saw it so when thinking of a special print to debut at Mondo Con, I thought to ask Berni if he was up for a collab piece and, to my joy and I hope yours too, he said YES!
I inked the pencils, added some skulls in for good measure ;), colored it, and at that point I noticed it looked like a movie poster: so I came up with a title and tagline and voila’, you get this limited print ready for the show!

The print run is limited to 100, numbered, 13x19” giclee prints, $50 each, bagged and boarded.
If you are at Mondo Con, you can get the print signed by both Berni and me. Any prints left over will be sold online on my store. I will try to get Berni to sign them all before I leave Austin, even if I can’t promise it (depending on Berni’s availability).

Hope you guys dig it! See you in Austin this weekend.

Cheers,
FF
