The Blot is super excited about the fourteenth screen print in the Mondo Star Wars Screen Print Series because it’s by one of my favorite artists, Kevin Tong! Kevin’s “linch pin” prints are always amazing, and “A Linch Pin Droid” is no exception. The fact that it features a deconstructed R2-D2 makes it all that much better!
Kevin Tong had this to say about hi print: “My print is called ‘A Linch Pin Droid’ and it’s an exploded view of R2D2, my favorite character in the Star Wars Trilogy. For this print, I made certain that I stayed true to the original Trilogy and spent months watching and pausing it. Although this print is largely technical, I was hoping that by showing R2D2′s individual tools and components all spread out, people can reflect on the moments in the Trilogy where he used those devices to save the day and the galaxy.” To find out more about the creative process behind this print click here.
“A Linch Pin Droid” by Kevin Tong is a hand numbered 24“x36” glow in the dark screen print. This Star Wars print has a limited edition run size of 400 and will retail for $50 each. Collectors can purchase “A Linch Pin Droid” directly from Mondo Tees at a random time Friday, November 26, here.
