DAZED AND CONFUSED Screenprinted Poster. Artwork by Ryan Besch. 24" x 36". Edition of 165. Printed by Lady Lazarus. Ships Worldwide. Estimated Shipping September 2024. $80 
"Growing up, one of the things that I used to look forward to the most was the sun going down on a Friday night. School was finally over for the week, and the sun setting was the start of whatever adventures were going to happen that weekend. That feeling is one of the things that I latched onto the most with DAZED AND CONFUSED (and other coming of age movies like AMERICAN GRAFFITI) when I saw it as a freshman in ‘94. It’s one night, one 24hr window into the lives of these characters and that’s it. Because of that, I wanted to set the poster just as the sun is going down ... the party’s been cancelled and all of the characters are on the prowl for whatever’s next. That's what I think of when I think of that film and being that age. You could end up at a punk show in another city or strike out completely and just mindlessly drive around for the night. Who knows? That was best. And even though it’s a small nod, I'm excited that we were able to work in an homage to Kozik’s iconic DAZED poster, which is still one of my all time favorites."

"For a movie with so many aimless chill vibes, man, it is hilarious to see Fred O’Bannion (Affleck) running around, being a complete goon on a mission to violently haze innocent freshmen the entire runtime. This dynamic plays out perfectly, like an underground comic from the 70s. There was no better artist to knock this it out of the park with a FAH-Q cricket bat than psychedelic gig-poster artist Ryan Besch."

SIXTEEN CANDLES Screenprinted Poster. Artwork by Eve Lloyd Knight. 18" x 24". Edition of 165. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Ships Worldwide. Estimated Shipping September 2024. $65 

"I adore the vibrant 80s aesthetics and the quintessential American homes portrayed in SIXTEEN CANDLES. The maximalist, pink-filled bedroom of the classic all American girl truly captivated me. This inspired me to meticulously illustrate every detail of Sam’s belongings, capturing the nostalgic essence of that era." 

-Eve Lloyd Knight 


"Eve Lloyd Knight has a keen eye for interior design, as evidenced by her previous Mondo posters for SOUL and TONY FURNITURE. John Hughes, renowned for capturing the intimate lives of teenagers in his films, serves as inspiration. In homage to his work, Eve's poster gives us an intimate glimpse, through the looking glass, into the cozy chaos of Samantha Baker's bedroom on her sixteenth birthday in the 1980s ... a day tragically forgotten by her family."
