Tom Whalen’s beautiful TMNT print set for new Mondo Gallery Info-Rama show

The Master of One Podcast is excited to announce that Mondo—known to be one of the
leading authorities when it comes to pop culture art and collectibles—is at it again with a
beautiful new print of the “Hero in a half-shell” by Tom Whalen!

The Donatello print—among many others—is part of the Info·Rama 3-man show,
opening on Friday, June 24 from 7-10pm at Mondo Gallery in Austin. The show will run
June 24 - July 9, Tuesdays through Saturdays noon-6pm. Other artists included in the
show are UK artist, Matt Taylor and Info·Rama founder Kevin Tong! (All three artists will
be in attendance at the show opener this Friday)

Listen to the exclusive interview with all three artists on Friday’s episode of the Master of
One Podcast (Mof1). Hear Tom, Matt, and Kevin give a behind the scenes look at some
of the other pieces from the show, as well as what it’s like to put a gallery show together
that perfectly marries information and art!

Catch up on the whole month of Turtles (including interviews with comic artist Jon
Sommariva and creator Kevin Eastman) on the Mof1 Archive, and we will see you in
Austin for the gallery show!

"The Mondo crew was especially helpful with research and fact-checking on the posters
for this show. Head of Creative Production Eric Garza is an uber-Turtles fan and was my
go-to guy for all queries about the TMNT poster set. As a thank you for his knowledgesharing,
I honored Eric's request to render Donatello (his favorite Turtle) in his 1990s
form." – Tom Whalen
