mondo: wise little hen



here's my latest project for mondotees, a 5-color silkscreen celebrating the first appearance of donald duck in "the wise little hen"!

i've been really, really excited to show this one off. watching these old shorts (in the name of research) with my son has been incredible. the fact that he responds to them the way that he does speaks to their long-lasting quality. i am consistently amazed by the craftsmanship of early disney animation and love that he and i can share these amazing cartoons together.

even though donald is a major character in "the wise little hen", he's hardly the star. we chose, however to spotlight him on this poster because of the timeless character that he'd become in so many disney productions that followed this one.

poster specs:
• 5 color screenprint on cougar natural 100# cover stock
• size: 18" x 24"
• limited edition of 325

Reminds me of those Death Race 2000 posters that were made after Rocky became a big hit. Machine Gun Joe Viterbo went from a minor racer to being the focus of a number of posters shown larger even than Carradine.
